London, UK, May 30, 2016 -- Network software provider Metaswitch Networks(R) announced that REDtone, an integrated telecommunications and solutions provider in Malaysia, is building their real-time cloud communications portfolio on Metaswitch’s virtualized business communications, session border controller, call switching and service analysis functions. The commitment to building a fully virtualized solution is enabling REDtone to test, offer and support new services, more quickly and cost-efficiently than traditional models have allowed.
"Metaswitch’s virtual network functions, running on our off-the-shelf virtualized platforms, enable us to outpace and outperform incumbents when it comes to bringing new business services to market," said Lau Bik Soon, REDtone Group CEO. "Not only can we now deliver advanced unified communications capabilities to our customers, but we also have a platform for agile service innovation that is freed from vendors’ traditional hardware dependencies and lengthy release cycles."
In order to achieve these benefits, REDtone is deploying a full suite of Metaswitch’s virtualized network functions including the MetaSphere Multiservice Telephony Application Server (MTAS), Service Assurance Server (SAS) (for deep data mining and service management), Perimeta Session Border Controller and Accession Communicator (for desktop/mobile unified communications and collaboration).

"We are extremely pleased to have been selected by REDtone as the foundation for accelerating the innovation required to support their rapid growth and to stay ahead of incumbents in the highly competitive Malaysian business services market."
