OpenDayLight

 

Metaswitch Networks, the leading provider of carrier-class solutions for next-generation communications services: switch migration, VoIP, hosted business services and SBC -  releases Clearwater Core, an implementation of IMS built using Web development methods to provide voice, video and messaging services to millions of users.  The system which comes with no up-front acquisition costs or license fees, provides a foundation for complete wireline and wireless IP communications while effectively removing the typical cost barriers to deploying IMS-centric Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Rich Communications Services (RCS). Network operators can leverage their standard compute resources while incurring a minimal software subscription fee based on the number of virtual CPU cores utilized.

 

Metaswitch says that the Clearwater Core combines the economics of over-the-top (OTT) style service platforms with the standards compliance and reliability expected of telco-grade communications network solutions. The Web services-oriented design inherent to Clearwater Core makes it ideal for instantiation within network functions virtualization (NFV) environments as a virtualized network function (VNF), suitable for telcos seeking a commercial product, with the economics of OTT-style service platforms.

 

“NFV has far-reaching effects in communications networks and this new approach to building networks will provide numerous benefits to network operators, including reductions in both capital and operating costs and the promotion of rapid innovation in the services space,” says Dave Reekie, general manager of Metaswitch’s open source business unit.Project Clearwater and Clearwater Core.  “We’re pleased to be easing network operators into the NFV revolution with Clearwater Core, where we can provide individual network operators ongoing support and maintenance of their cloud-based IMS Core on a software subscription basis,” says Reekie. “Like Project Clearwater, the open-source effort that started us down this path, Clearwater Core is completely unique in the industry.”
