Company growth continues to accelerate in all facets of the business

ALAMEDA, Calif, January 16, 2009. MetaSwitch continues to strengthen its position as the leader in delivering reliable, high-quality voice communications platforms and services, as demonstrated by its passing of several significant deployment and corporate milestones, including:

  • Total shipments of Class 5 switching capacity, which have now passed the 20 million subscriber mark.
  • Twenty-five million unified messaging licenses, part of the MetaSphere application suite, have now been shipped.
  • More than 400 carriers have now deployed MetaSwitch's solutions and services to better serve their customers with innovative, reliable voice.
  • The continued expansion of its workforce, which is now more than 500 employees worldwide.

"MetaSwitch continues to grow steadily, because our core values of quality technology, innovation, reliability and support are shared by our customers," explained Ian Ferguson, MetaSwitch Chairman. "As carriers closely examine their expenditure, they are aggressively seeking financially stable partners that can deliver an immediate impact on their bottom line, with the deployment of new, quick-to-revenue applications and services. MetaSwitch remains committed to growing our internal resources so we can continue to help our customers to address their business challenges."

MetaSwitch has a unique track record of success in the next-generation voice communications industry, both in terms of technological advancements and company growth. During the last year alone, MetaSwitch introduced a host of new applications and services, including enhancements to its MetaSphere application suite, as well as its MetaView Network Management System. Additionally, revenue from carrier VoIP solutions has grown by more than 50% annually over the last five years, with consistent profitability and operating margins in excess of 20%. As a result, MetaSwitch is now the preeminent vendor of switching and applications solutions in North America, with a growing worldwide presence.

"Despite a failing economy, we predict continued growth in the VoIP infrastructure market over the next five years,1" said Deborah Kish, principal research analyst for carrier network infrastructure, Gartner, Inc. "And, with many incumbent vendors facing significant challenges, newer players with greater customer focus and growth potential are likely to increase market share."
