OneAccess Networks, a global supplier of managed converged services CPE solutions for small-medium businesses (SMB) to service providers announced that it has completed Metaswitch certification for the ONE700 product. The ONE700 is part of the ONE series that enables the delivery of converged services for legacy PRI termination applications while supporting a roadmap of cloud-based services. The ONE700 CPE is a multi-service router with industry-leading hardware scalability and software flexibility with EFM g.shdsl and fiber Ethernet WAN options, up to 2 PRIs for legacy PBX termination and a four-port managed Gigabit Ethernet switch.
Service providers are migrating from expensive, “barely broadband” T1 circuits to copper and fiber-based Ethernet solutions that are the underpinning for a new generation of cloud services. The ONE series of CPE enables service providers to deliver managed converged services with Carrier Ethernet technology today, with a software-centric architecture that reduces the number of appliances required in the SMB LAN to deliver cloud-based services to the SMB and enterprise customer.
“OneAccess has set an expectation for commitment to interoperability that our service provider customers rely on for reduced time to deployment and high quality service offerings,” said Dennis R. Gatens, vice president & general manager for OneAccess Networks, North America. “Our commitment to interoperability certification and solution partnerships is an integral part of the strategic relationship we build with our service provider customers.”
“We are very pleased to welcome OneAccess Networks into the Metaswitch Mosaic Program,” said Stefan Knight, vice president of strategic alliances at Metaswitch. “As carriers increasingly deploy our hosted business services solution they are also looking for compatible elements such as the ONE700 for their SMB customers.”
The Metaswitch Mosaic Program is a formal ecosystem of solution vendors who have successfully demonstrated interoperability with Metaswitch’s platforms in the company’s interoperability lab in San Francisco. Once solutions reach certification, they are promoted throughout the Metaswitch customer base and Mosaic partners are invited to exhibit at the annual Metaswitch Forum. More than 250 products from over 100 companies are currently Mosaic certified, including customer-premise equipment (CPEs), access platforms, applications, network operations and hosted services, delivering world-class options to Metaswitch customers at every point in their network.
With greater than 600,000 units deployed in more than 130 service provider networks around the world, the OneAccess OneOS is a field-proven, highly reliable operating system with a number of management tools that reduce the operational cost and complexity of managed converged services.
