Panasonic Debuts Latest Hosted / Open Source UC Solution at Metaswitch Forum

Themed “The Brains of the New Global Network,” Metaswitch Forum takes place May 12-15, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. The annual Metaswitch Forum brings together communication service providers, technology vendors and expert speakers from around the world for three days of discussions focusing on innovative products, industry trends and best practices for  network transformation, cloud computing and the rise of software-based telcos.

Reflecting the innovative character of the Metaswitch Forum, Panasonic will be on hand to exhibit its UC solutions and introduce its newest KX-UTG200B & KX-UTG300B SIP phones to Metaswitch Forum customers and industry experts. The new SIP phones completed interoperability testing with Metaswitch, a recognition that signals admission into Metaswitch Networks’ Mosaic Partner Program. Hosted cloud service providers using the Metaswitch platform can now efficiently and securely provision Panasonic’s KX-UTG200B & KX-UTG300B phones for mass deployment with plug and play simplicity and flexible configuration options to customers of all sizes in a variety of markets.

“Our goal at Metaswitch is to give service providers the means to provide a single, all-IP platform for delivering data, voice and multimedia services,” says Brandon Harper, VP of Business Development and Channels, Metaswitch Networks. “With the help of Panasonic, one of our Mosaic Partners, service providers don’t have to spend time and money solving compatibility problems and can, instead, focus on what’s really important.”

Panasonic’s new SIP phones are designed to support business-class services delivered by a hosted service provider requiring no platform hardware investment and can be configured and set-up to run services on an internal hardware platform. As a result, enterprise customers benefit from a feature-rich, affordable SIP telephony solution and low total cost of ownership. Panasonic and Metaswitch are working together to support business customers who want to take advantage of the cost-efficiency, flexibility, advanced capabilities and high-performance standards delivered by  SIP-based hosted telephony solutions.
