Telkomsel, the largest wireless carrier in Indonesia, has selected the MaX UC portfolio from cloud native communications software supplier Metaswitch to enable it to offer unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) services to the broader business market.
These will be underpinned by Telkomsel’s Advance Communication Enterprise Suite, its new virtual PBX solution also based on Metaswitch, ensuring rapid deployment of its cloud-based telephony applications.
Telkomsel has more than 178 million subscribers, and is the first mobile operator in Indonesia to commercially launch 4G LTE services. Telkomsel, says Metaswitch, sees mobile-native UC&C business offerings as critical to future growth.
As part of its solution, Telkomsel is deploying a full-stack solution from Metaswitch, including Clearwater Core IMS (IP multimedia subsystem), Perimeta SBC (session border controller) and MTAS (mobile telephony application server), while also connecting to an existing Metaswitch Rhino TAS deployed at full scale in Telkomsel’s mobile network.
Metaswitch says its MaX UC portfolio allows providers to launch innovative mobile-first offerings tailored to consumers and business users with network-quality voice, multiple-identities and an intuitive native dialler user experience (UX) for business voice, messaging and collaboration.
