Metaswitch Networks, a provider of communications software and solutions, has announced that CityPlay has selected its MetaSphere Multimedia Telephony Applications Server (MTAS) and Perimeta Session Border Controller (SBC).

CityPlay is one of a group of operators in France that offer voice, digital television and Internet services over a 100Mbps fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network, driving customer subscriptions ahead of trend in the French government’s pursuit to equip 70 percent of households with FTTH by 2020. It serves the city of Amiens and the surrounding area in northern France, providing a service to residential and business users.

CityPlay will utilise Perimeta session management for increased flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness enabled by its distributed signalling and media architecture, says Metaswitch. The MetaSphere MTAS will underpin the provision of differentiated and profitable hosted business services throughout the French market.
