Toronto, ON – MERA Systems announces today that one of the largest retail providers in South Africa selects MERA VoIP Softswitch II to use it at the core of its VoIP network, and becomes MERA Systems reseller.

As an international calling provider in South Africa, Telestream offers both retail and wholesale VoIP services. It has searched for a carrier grade solution for business that was reliable, scalable, easy to operate and cost effective. MERA Systems reputation in the softswitch and sbc market, that is paramount to any business, made MVTS II an easy choice for Telestream, since it catered for all these needs and exceeded all expectations.
