Mediacom Chooses Perimeta Session Border Controllers to Evolve Voice Services

Metaswitch SBC Judged Superior Fit for Mediacom's Growth and Flexibility Needs

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2013) - SCTE Cable-Tec Expo - Mediacom, the nation's eighth-largest cable operator, has joined the growing list of service providers to choose the Perimeta Session Border Controller from Metaswitch Networks.

Perimeta will help ensure the security and quality of Mediacom's business voice network. For more information on Mediacom's business solutions, click here.

"We are continually increasing the functionality of our IP voice services, so we need flexible session border controllers that can scale to our needs," said Michael Sobotor, director, IP development at Mediacom. "We chose Perimeta because it secures our rapidly increasing signalling and media traffic independently, so we never have stranded SIP processing capacity. Plus the fully integrated MetaView Service Assurance Server provides operational control over every connection point across our voice network including the Perimeta Session Border Controller."

A software-centric SBC built to operate on standard commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware, Perimeta is the first session border controller architected for network functions virtualization (NFV). With flexible options for integrated or distributed signaling and media deployments, Perimeta can scale these distinct components independently, dramatically reducing deployment costs. Exclusive to Perimeta, each platform features always-on signaling packet capture with real-time proactive analytics and decoding through the Metaswitch Service Assurance Server.

"Metaswitch offers an attractive combination for larger network operators like Mediacom," said Bryan Weeks, vice president of sales at Metaswitch. "We are seeing strong demand from cable operators for the SBC flexibility, management and scale needed to support new IP services, and also to replace legacy investments that no longer perform."
