Barcelona – February 27, 2017 -- Tech Mahindra, a specialist in digital transformation, consulting and business engineering today announced that cloud native communications leader Metaswitch has been selected to join its VNF-Exchange program. By joining the VNF-Exchange program, Metaswitch will provide key cloud native virtual network functions as part of Tech Mahindra’s validated end-to-end solutions for converged and mobile operators, including Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi).

“Tech Mahindra and Metaswitch share a vision for telco transformation through NFV and SDN, and are working closely to provide the next generation of solutions to accelerate provider success,” said Ian Maclean, CMO of Metaswitch. “This work builds on Metaswitch’s commitment to cloud native communications, moving our companies and our mutual customers more rapidly into an era of software-centric service deployment and the revenue growth that it enables.”
