Sprint taps Metaswitch for network virtualisation boost

6 Sep 2017

US mobile operator Sprint has enlisted California-based cloud native communications software company Metaswitch to deploy products and technologies that will enable the accelerated development of advanced mobile communication services for businesses and consumers. The vendor notes that its cloud technology portfolio provides an agile, cost-efficient innovation platform for LTE and 5G networks, extending beyond person-to-person communications and into the Internet of Things (IoT) sector.

Gunther Ottendorfer, Chief Operating Officer of Technology at Sprint, commented: ‘We’re excited to lay this foundation as part of Sprint’s network virtualisation 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.’
