LOS ALTOS, Calif., March 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cloud native communications software leader Metaswitch today announced that Hutchison Drei Austria has selected Metaswitch’s MaX UC portfolio to deliver new converged Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C) solutions to its business users, while also modernizing its legacy Hosted PBX, Mobile VPN and Cloud UC offerings. Hutchison Drei Austria has 3.9 million customers across consumer, business, prepaid and both fixed and mobile wholesale markets. The company serves multiple business segments, covering telecommunications, retail, infrastructure, energy, finance and investments.

“Metaswitch’s award-winning portfolio of UC&C solutions is the perfect complement to our growing suite of services for our enterprise customers,” says Christoph Trappl, product owner at Hutchison Drei Austria. “It’s a technically superior platform that gives us an all-IP and mobile native business services solution that enables us to harmonize and evolve our network while disrupting the enterprise services market. Our customers will benefit from a rich suite of product offerings that features a highly-intuitive user experience with one-touch services across mobile phones, tablets and desktops.”
