MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Apr 17, 2013) - IP Possibilities -- TDS Telecommunications Corp (TDS®) is the latest service provider to upgrade their session control infrastructure with the Perimeta portfolio of Session Border Controllers, enabling them to deploy a broad new range of unified communications services effectively and efficiently. Recognizing the Perimeta SBC as a product that has rapidly gained accolades as the most powerful and versatile of its kind, TDS chose to extend their existing partnership with Metaswitch to include this critical network function.

"TDS is defining a new suite of unified communications services and we needed a session border controller function that could keep up to our pace," said Ken Paker, vice president of Network Services at TDS. "After an extensive evaluation process, it was clear that Perimeta was the only SBC that could deliver the performance we required under heavy SIP message loads, even when handling fragmented packets and applying complex rule sets."

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.

"We genuinely appreciate the long-term relationship we enjoy with TDS, helping them deliver robust and feature-rich voice applications," said Graeme MacArthur, executive vice president at Metaswitch. "The certification of our Perimeta SBC platform represents a new step forward in this partnership and we are glad to have been selected for this critical network function."
