By Traci Patterson

MetaSwitch has unveiled the latest addition to its family of softswitch and applications solutions, the MetaView Network Management System.

MetaView – in combination with the MetaSwitch class 4/5 softswitch, and MetaSphere service delivery platform and application server – enhances carriers' ability to reduce operational costs as they introduce new services into the network.

MetaView features include fault management across any multiple network elements, advanced diagnostics, a SOAP/XML provisioning model, accounting and performance reporting tools, and out-of-the-box integrated provisioning.   

"With MetaSwitch, MetaSphere and MetaView, we are providing [operators] with all the tools necessary to effectively deploy large-scale VoIP networks and manage the latest services for their users," said Chris Mairs, CTO of MetaSwitch.
