For Squire Technologies & Cataleya one plus one is definitely greater than two.

UK-based Squire Technologies and Cataleya will combine their solutions to offer a comprehensive TDM and IP product portfolio to customers around the globe. As a result of this new partnership, one plus one is definitely greater than two.

London, 10 November 2017 – Cataleya, a leader in IP, networking and technology innovation, has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with Squire Technologies, a UK-based signalling specialist, to combine its products and solutions to offer a much broader ecosystem of real-time communications networking solutions to its existing and new clients.

Squire Technologies serves Tier 1 and Tier 2 providers in the fixed, mobile, alternative and virtual space with innovative solutions. The agreement enables it to expand its product portfolio with Cataleya’s simple and intuitive networking and analytics technologies. Cataleya and Squire Technologies can service its customers with a comprehensive range of solutions from TDM to IP interworking, SS7 and IMS signalling, SIP, WEBRTC, VoWiFi and VoLTE.

“Customers are looking for solution ecosystems that solve particular challenges and provide an entire service production platform, rather than purchasing individual components. As technology complexity and interworking challenges increase, flexible partners become a significant competitive advantage to operators as they enable them to launch new services faster and more cost-effectively than their contenders,” said Andreas Hipp, CEO and Chairman at Cataleya. “The partnership enables us to combine both our innovative solutions and offer our customers the services they need to efficiently grow their business and capture new revenue. We are bringing together our expertise and experience in delivering leading IP services to our customers.”

“In a rapidly evolving industry, it is crucial to understand how our customers do business. The strategic partnership enables us to strengthen our product proposition and drive the adoption of IP services and makes our mutual distribution and support network and coverage truly global,” said Sanjeev Verma, CEO at Squire Technologies. “Cataleya is the perfect partner for us with its forward-thinking approach and award-winning solutions. We are excited to form the partnership to benefit our customers and drive innovation within the industry with a truly integrated range of solutions.”

LTE Voice Alive and Well

Notes from the LTE Voice and Advanced Communication Services Conference in Amsterdam this week.

Winners and Losers

If you’re a mobile operator with comprehensive LTE coverage, VoLTE mostly implemented and 5G next on your list, then you’re sitting on a gold mine. The worst that can happen is that you end up selling data-only packages to millions of subscribers.

The decline in voice and SMS revenue is being felt more keenly at the edge of the network causing a slight whiff of panic amongst the attending wholesalers and aggregators, with whispers of “bit pipe” and “market consolidation“ being heard at the event, more than once.


The big players have started with NFV at the application layer, with the Telephony Application Server (TAS) and its peripheries. The technical and organisational lessons learnt here are being mulled over before any attempt is made to tackle the session control layer. Blunt statements aimed at vendors reminding them to sell solutions and not just technology for technology’s sake.

VoLTE Services

VoLTE is a platform, and as explained in the presentation from Hot Telecom those operators who have successfully rolled it out are now beginning to develop and trial new innovative services.

Multi-device is also gaining a lot of attention, and following SK Telecoms engaging presentation showing us the future, it left us to think about how we’ll all be communicating seamlessly from our mobile, laptop, TV, tablet, and Amazon Echo etc.

T-Mobile US showcased their ‘Digits’ service that allows subscribers to have one or more virtual numbers, creating multiple profiles from a single device. Imagine millennials with:

• Personal profile
• Business profile
• Running Club profile
• Dating profile
• Gamers profile

They have seen a direct increase in subscribers, and equally as important, a reduction in churn.

Test and Measurement

The integration of IMS with legacy & IPX makes signalling and more importantly voice quality something that actively needs to be measured. The (at times) tortuous media path traversing a 3G, 4G & VoIP network means you shouldn’t take voice quality for granted or your subscribers will become a churn stat. Interesting to see the breadth of experience at the show for this vertical.


It seems RCS is firmly in eco system. As VoLTE diallers with integrated messaging, video and media are increasingly being used to offer VoLTE capabilities on non VoLTE devices to dramatically increase subscriber take up – see Reliance Jio story.

Bots are increasingly being deployed to facilitate customer services, with encouraging figures illustrating a reduction in churn where they’re deployed. Ironically the pundits are predicting the bots will really take off when they’re voice enabled.

In conclusion the telecoms industry is in a fundamental state of flux, the disruptors (OTT’s) are wreaking havoc with traditional voice and messaging revenue. Sun-Tzu said “In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity” which felt refreshingly on the surface at this week’s conference.
