The deal will enable Tejas to deploy unified, fully integrated routing and signaling across a wide range of Tejas products, the company adds.

Metaswitch's control plane software includes support for OTN and MPLS-TP, which Tejas will use to help enable service providers to transition from TDM to all-packet networks with minimal network disruption. The Metaswitch products are optimized to support both transport technologies (SONET/SDH, packet optical, OTN, MPLS-TP) and services (IP, Carrier Ethernet, VPNs) in that the control plane capabilities are delivered via a common set of portable GMPLS, MPLS, and IP routing products.

"Tejas has pioneered in providing innovative end-to-end optical transport solutions with a strong management plane. Now, we are looking to further enhance our offerings with a strong control plane which minimizes our customers' capex and opex, and Metaswitch certainly helps us in that goal," said Sarath Kumar, vice president of engineering at Tejas Networks. "With Metaswitch, we have a partner that provides a control plane for the latest technologies such as OTN and MPLS-TP, but also a framework that reduces development cost and effort."
