Tiscali Picks Metaswitch's Clearwater Core and Perimeta SBC to Power Indoona App

Tiscali, Clearwater Core's First Customer and One of Italy's Leading Telecommunications Companies, Is Looking to Grow Its Popular Over-the-Top Application and Consumer Services

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 03/27/14 -- Metaswitch Networks today announced that Tiscali has successfully built on Clearwater Core and Perimeta Session Border Controller (SBC) as part of its innovative Indoona over-the-top (OTT) application.

Tiscali is taking an important step toward network functions virtualization (NFV) with its use of Metaswitch's Clearwater Core, an implementation of IMS built for the cloud using Web development methods to provide voice, video and messaging services to millions of users. Clearwater Core combines the economics of OTT-style service platforms with the standards compliance and reliability expected of telco-grade communications network solutions. The Web-services-oriented design inherent to Clearwater Core makes it ideal for instantiation within NFV environments as a virtualized network function (VNF).

Tiscali's adoption of Clearwater Core also helps validate Metaswitch's "software telco" strategy, which asserts that communications networks are transitioning to a cloud-based, software-centric, all-IP future. Clearwater Core provides the first cost-effective foundation for carrier-based SIP services and it can be instantiated, scaled up and scaled down within seconds, as demanded by service utilization or application loads.

Tiscali's Indoona application gives users access to a unique social network designed for smartphones. It allows users to publish posts up to 3,000 characters, share photos, audio or video files and much more. The application offers users 100 minutes per month of free calls to Western Europe, Canada, China and the U.S.

Metaswitch's solution allowed Tiscali to cost-effectively scale to support the expansion and popularity of the Indoona application and includes Metaswitch's Perimeta Session Border Controller, deployed in a distributed environment to provide industry-leading network protection and to facilitate access for Indoona clients worldwide. The deployment also includes MetaView Service Assurance Servers (SAS) for always-on diagnostics, including internal policy auditing as well as network protocol tracing.

"A network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) is the perfect environment in which to construct, test, deploy and scale innovative network functions. We're pleased that Tiscali chose Metaswitch's NFV expertise to help it grow Indoona while providing telco-grade reliability," says Dave Reekie, general manager of Metaswitch's open source and security/interconnect business units. "We're confident that as the Indoona service continues to scale and evolve and become more popular with consumers, Metaswitch will be right there helping Tiscali promote the rapid innovation of new services."

"Our customer demand is growing rapidly and Metaswitch is helping us meet the needs of our customers quickly and easily," says Tiscali CTO Andrea Podda. "Metaswitch's Clearwater and Perimeta products are helping Tiscali achieve its goal of operating a modern, intelligent future-proof network in Italy, in turn delivering high-quality services to our customers."

Digital transformation has increased the pace of business creating a productivity divide between the technology haves and have nots.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
