MetroPCS deploys Acme Packet Solution

Nov 16, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Acme Packet (NASDAQ: APKT) said that wireless service provider MetroPCS has deployed Acme Packet's Net-Net Session director to support the world's first commercially available Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service launched in August 2012, as well as MetroPCS' recent launch of Rich Communication Services.


MetroPCS deployed the Acme Packet Net-Net Session director session border controller to support its VoLTE and RCS deployments. The Net-Net Session director provides extensive SIP normalization, mediation, and interworking functions that enable operators to efficiently integrate network elements supplied by multiple vendors.

Acme Packet's extensible Net-Net Session director solution supports multiple IMS services -- including VoLTE, RCS, and Voice over WiFi -- in a single platform, with unified administration.

The Acme Packet Net-Net Session director solution protects and controls SIP sessions between the MetroPCS service core and LTE endpoints, and provides the Proxy Call Session Control Function (P-CSCF) in the IMS network.

Acme Packet enables the trusted, first-class delivery of next-generation voice, video, data and unified communications services and applications across IP networks. For more information visit www.acmepacket.com.
