Sprint is deploying Metaswitch products and technologies that will enable the accelerated development and deployment of advanced mobile communication services for businesses and consumers.

Mobile users are looking to network operators to deliver services that enhance the communications experience and improve productivity. Together, Sprint and Metaswitch are looking to provide higher quality, feature-rich and sophisticated communication services that are native to the mobile phone dialer.

This combination will offer users a more intuitive, reliable and collaborative experience than is typically available from third party applications that ride on top of a standard mobile data plan.

Metaswitch said its cloud technology portfolio provides an agile and cost-efficient innovation platform for LTE and 5G networks, extending beyond person-to-person communications and into the real time connectivity and control of the Internet of Things. 

Gunther Ottendorfer, COO of Technology, Sprint
We're excited to lay this foundation as part of Sprint's network virtualization initiative, which we expect will deliver an expanding range of innovative services to our customers for many years to come. These new services will enable our customers to do more with the devices they depend on at home, at work and on the go, while reducing our infrastructure and operating costs.

Martin Lund, CEO, Metaswitch 
We are honored to have been selected as a key strategic provider for the core of Sprint's next generation network and we look forward to driving future innovation together.
