SCORES Analysis

Metaswitch Networks Strengths

Metaswitch provides network infrastructure hardware, software, and management technologies and services that help network operators to defend, modernize, extend, monetize and brand their businesses. The strategic vision is to migrate all products to cloud-based servers and/or services.


In May 2016, Metaswitch announced a new cloud service option, which allows service providers to move away from operating their own voice networks and instead buy these as a cloud service from the software vendor. That was one of seven major product announcements released at the Metaswitch Networks customer event. The others include an NFV starter kit, new analytics tools, an expanded Unified Communications solution and a security review service, among others.
