As announced on TelcoBridges blog, we have signed on to be a TelcoBridges Alliance Partner. I’ve previously shared how pleased I was by the announcement that Metaswitch and TelcoBridges have entered into an interoperability agreement, and it’s that agreement that has led to this partnership.
Metaswitch has always been primarily a software company, and in the long-term, I don’t expect them to launch any new media gateways after the current ATCA UMGs. These ATCA UMGs are great products, but over time, I expect many of our clients will find themselves looking to TelcoBridges Tmedia media gateways as an option for continue TDM connectivity.
Given that context, we are pleased to be able to partner with TelcoBridges so we can better help those clients who would like to include their products in their voice network. If you’re currently trying to figure out your long-term hardware strategy, please contact us and we can discuss further.
Here’s the full announcement.
The complexities of real-world telecommunication networks and the array of vendors makes them impossible to fully understand all the intricacies. Fortunately, TelcoBridges has an array of well-versed alliance partners that do have the specialization to solve complex network challenges.
TelcoBridges is pleased to announce that Award Consulting has signed on as a TelcoBridges Alliance Partner, bringing the expertise of Andrew Ward and his team of Metaswitch Networks experts to our partner portfolio.
“The added expertise that Award Consulting brings to TelcoBridges is very timely, adding first-hand experience with Metaswitch Networks”, said Alan Percy, CMO at TelcoBridges. “TelcoBridges’ recent interoperability agreement with Metaswitch makes this especially important.”
“We are delighted to be partnering with TelcoBridges”, said Andrew Ward, CEO at Award Consulting. “We think their recent interoperability agreement with Metaswitch Networks is great news for small ILECs, providing a long-term path forwards for those who need a TDM media gateway.”
As an Alliance Partner, Award Consulting will benefit from greater access to technical training, support access, early software releases, roadmap details, and other incentives. More on the TelcoBridges Alliance Program at: https://telcobridges.com/partners/alliance/
