Sure Diego Garcia teams up with Metaswitch for network modernisation

6 Mar 2019

Metaswitch has announced that it has joined forces with telco Sure Diego Garcia to provide its Clearwater cloud native IP Multimedia Subsystem (vIMS) core and VoLTE TAS solutions. The collaboration will accelerate the transformation from Sure’s circuit-switched telephony infrastructure to an all IP telephony network. Sure CTIO Cyrille Joffre said: ‘As a customer of Metaswitch for more than ten years, we knew they were the right partner to provide us with the services we required within our budget. Their technology and cloud native architecture had the ability to ease our transition to new software-defined service function chains that are uniquely flexible, resilient and scalable. They also understood the deployment strategy supporting our key customers in Diego Garcia.’

Sure Diego Garcia is part of the Batelco Group and provides communications services for base personnel at the US Naval Support Facility on Diego Garcia, an island within the Chagos Archipelago in the Central Indian Ocean.
