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.”

Confronting End-of-Life for Softswitches

How to protect your investments and maintain SS7 and VoIP interconnections

What do you do if a key vendor announces ‘End of Life’ (EoL) for a critical part of your network infrastructure? It’s a common problem and operators have to plan for such eventualities. Even so, it can be problematic, particularly if the original vendor doesn’t have a replacement or upgrade plan.

Many operators that have invested in third party hardware and software to power their VoIP and NGN networks are becoming increasingly challenged by such end of life (EoL) announcements from industry vendors, most notably Cisco.

For example, Cisco has announced EoL and End of Support programmes for its PGW and ITP products, raising concerns for future operations and investment protection in live networks and leaving operators wondering how they will maintain their valuable interconnection points with VoIP, SS7 PSTN, NGN IP and IMS networks. What should operators do to help them navigate such challenges and avoid service disruptions or unnecessary additional investments?

Squire Technologies, signalling specialists to the telecoms industry, provides a range of future-proof options to help operators overcome such issues. We have reaffirmed our commitment to continue investment and support of our successful range of SS7 Signalling products, which includes the SVI Media Gateway Controller (MGC), SVI Signalling Gateway (SG) and SVI STP solutions.

With deployments in more than 100 countries around the world, Squire Technologies provides the answer to EoL challenges, delivering robust VoIP and SS7 interconnection and enabling a ready-made solution for operators that need to replace legacy products. But it’s not just platforms that are reaching the end of their lives that are threatened – other network elements that are controlled by EoL products as the Cisco PGW are also threatened.

We’ve taken care of this too, as our SVI MGC, SG and STP products can be deployed with third party platforms, ensuring service continuity and that operators can invest confidently in their networks. This means there is no need to replace other solutions that are in place, ensuring that investment is directed where it’s needed and no unnecessary expenses are incurred.

Seen as the perfect replacement for the Cisco PGW and ITP, the SVI SS7 Signalling range enables clients to interface their VoIP networks to SS7 PSTN, NGN IP and IMS networks, allowing the rapid launch of VoIP services while extending the life of legacy Media Gateway solutions from a range of 3rd Party providers.

Our strategy is built on the gradual evolution of our core product line, alongside the introduction of new solutions. This means that new features can be requested by customers and rapidly implemented to suit changing circumstances. Legacy vendors can rarely match this unrivalled flexibility, while EoL notifications mean that future enhancements are uncertain. Squire Technologies removes the uncertainty surrounding investments and provides a stable partnership for future growth.

If you are concerned about EoL programmes for critical network elements such as softswitches, signalling gateways and media gateway controllers, why not get in touch to see how we can help protect your network and provide a solution that helps future growth?
