Xplornet Goes Live With Metaswitch & Cisco For New Canadian Mobile VoLTE Network

Cloud native communications software leader Metaswitch and networking giant Cisco today announced that leading Canadian service provider Xplornet Communications has chosen their technology for the build out of its extensive mobile service expansion in Manitoba. Deployed in a fully-virtualized private cloud environment, the highly-scalable integrated solution will enable Xplornet to offer one of the most technologically-advanced mobile networks in Canada.

“This is a cloud-native, scalable and redundant solution that will allow us to meet our customers’ expectations of a world-class mobile service,” said Tim Dinesen, executive vice president, Network at Xplornet. “This solution enables us to provide 4G services in addition to VoLTE, while allowing rapid expansion of our mobile service footprint. Bypassing the traditional hardware-centric approach significantly lowers both our capex and opex and is backed by Metaswitch’s and Cisco’s professional services.”
