Cavalier, MetaSwitch Partner for Network Transformation
Cavalier selects carrier system provider MetaSwitch to transform its network architecture, which is aimed at providing cost-conscious businesses with communication tools for remote workers.In a move to leverage its fiber assets and deliver reliable voice over IP services, Cavalier, a provider of telecommunications services throughout the Eastern United States, selected MetaSwitch, a provider of carrier systems and software solutions, to transform its network architecture. With an initial focus on supporting the small to medium-size business market, Cavalier is leveraging its investment in MetaSwitch to launch hosted PBX and unified communications services under the "IPeer" brand. Through this network evolution that is currently under way, Cavalier is able to use standards-based, IP-oriented infrastructure from MetaSwitch to bring to bear IP telephony and other services in a hosted platform. Based on MetaSwitch technology, Cavalier is providing access to the IPeer Hosted PBX platform to SMB customers throughout its mid-Atlantic footprint, with plans to expand further.
The MetaSphere Enhanced Application Server is deployed in a central data center and is complemented by 11 MetaSwitch MG3510 media gateways deployed throughout the Cavalier service territory. The company said this allows Cavalier's business customers to have access to new features and applications without the need to update any software or hardware on-site and avoid the capital expenditure of on premises-based equipment.
