Italtel NetMatch-S: World’s First Cloud-Inside Session Border Controller Launched At MWC

NetMatch-S evolves to Cloud environment with the internal adoption of Cloud technology

Milan, February 3rd, 2014 - Italtel today announced the availability of NetMatch-S, the world's first Cloud-inside Session Border Controller (SBC), which uses Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies to help operators move towards the Telco in the Cloud model.

NetMatch-S manages and secures voice, video and multimedia IP sessions at the border of Enterprises and Service Providers' networks, enabling network interoperability thanks to its distinctive interworking features.

Virtualization and cloud infrastructure for communication services offer service providers advantages in operational cost reduction and time to market service distribution to the final customer.

"Our NetMatch-S is the first "cloud-inside" SBC because it was fully designed and developed in a cloud environment," said Stefano Pileri, CEO of Italtel. "Maximum flexibility, dynamic configuration and scalability to respond to customers' needs are the key features of this product which is designed for differentiating service solutions and strongly reducing OpEx."

With its "Lite Edition", NetMatch-S is the first virtualized SBC to be qualified by Microsoft for interoperability with Lync 2013 and is in production on virtualized environments. It has already been deployed for both User Network Interfaces (UNI) and Network Node Interfaces (NNI) by enterprises and service providers in EMEA.

NetMatch-S has evolved to become a fully cloud-ready implementation by internally adopting the cloud paradigm and exploiting dynamic mechanisms for resource allocation on demand, depending on the effective IP session management requirements.

It is designed to support different virtualization technologies, including VMware, Linux KVM and MS System Center, and can be managed by different/multiple Cloud Orchestrators.

NetMatch-S is available in three different product editions, based on different platforms, offering full coverage of market segments and for an effective cost-per-session:

Performance Edition based on 14-slots ATCA shelf
Compact Edition based on 2-slots ATCA shelf
Lite Edition: the pure software edition running on COTS hardware platforms
