  DALLAS, TX, May 18 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
TIA -- Metaswitch Networks extends its award winning portfolio of
carrier-hosted business services and applications with CommPortal
Communicator, a customizable unified communications client for PCs,
smartphones and tablet computers. 

    "With the advent of the always-on workplace, employees are increasingly
leveraging their mobile phones and walled-garden instant messenger
networks to communicate with colleagues and partners," said Steve Gleave,
vice president of marketing at Metaswitch. "With CommPortal Communicator,
service providers can complement hosted VoIP with IT-approved enterprise
telephony features delivering high definition voice and video plus
presence and IM, regardless of location."

    Available on Windows PC, Apple iOS and Android mobile devices, CommPortal
Communicator is the first UC client to leverage Metaswitch SIP Service
Provisioning and Assurance Server platforms. These unique network
elements dramatically simplify the wide-scale deployment of telephony
endpoints for the carrier, the enterprise customer and end user, while
significantly increasing quality of experience and reducing
mean-time-to-repair metrics.

    With wideband HD voice quality, CommPortal Communicator enables operators
to simultaneously present a complete suite of hosted PBX services to a
classic enterprise desk phone, a mobile handset and a PC. As a
fully-featured unified communications client, CommPortal Communicator
also enables high definition video calls and conferencing, along with a
standards-based instant messaging and presence that can integrate
business and social contacts, such as Outlook or LDAP/Active Directory
and Facebook, on a single interface.
