5 Ways Network Architects Have Overcome Signalling Interconnect Challenges.

Written by Squire Technologies on . Posted in Blog

Todays network architect has an unenviable set of targets. Manage the constantly evolving rollout of new technology, support existing infrastructure and customers while driving down complexity and costs and of course not forgetting the seamless rollout of new services.

To help solve todays demanding interconnect challenges and achieve these goals the network manager needs flexible tools at their disposal. Squire Technologies Service Creation Toolkit, delivered alongside their carrier grade STP product, is just one such tool.

Take a look at 5 case studies illustrating how our clients have solved a variety of challenges whilst achieving real cost savings, network simplification and rollout of new services.

Case Studies:

Case Study 1: MNP Mobile Number PortabilitySCT_casestudy_whitepaper_blog
“having found themselves in the position whereby their IN platform used for MNP was reaching end-of-life…”

Case Study 2: Firewall / Fraud Protection
“using our service creation toolkit the customer is monitoring incoming subscriber registration requests on a GSM network, probing the subscriber via MAP signalling to identify location and depending on the response…”

Case Study 3: Lawful Intercept
“are able to use the toolkit to test and probe the network to see if they can enable intercept… Once a successful method has been found…”

Case Study 4: DIPS & Lookups
“for an 0800 call a lookup is first done on the internal SQL database, if there is no record then the external IN based lookup is performed and the result is stored…”

Case Study 5: Message Modification
“the solution is to check the messages to see if the presentation indicator is disabled and if it is modify the message…”

 

Smile Partners with Squire Technologies to deploy a VoLTE Network in Africa

Written by Squire Technologies on . Posted in Blog

 

Following on from the success of Smile’s pan African 4G LTE network enabling mobile broadband data was the rollout of voice and messaging using Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology.
“From day one we needed a technology partner that could not only offer us a diverse range of core network signalling products but also a set of telecoms signalling experts that could rapidly develop and evolve their products to solve the networking issues we knew we would face in such a leading edge rollout. I am happy to say Squire Technologies provided both and have been a key part of our success with the VoLTE rollout “said Tom Allen Smile COO.

At the heart of the VoLTE solution was the Squire Technologies SVI-SBC Session Border Controller. Building on half a decade of NGN deployments the SVI-SBC was rapidly deployed to support LTE Pre-Conditions enabling optimal bandwidth allocation and rollout of VoLTE handsets. With high volume transcoding and support for multi-device, single number services allowed Smile to offer offnet voice and messaging. At the back end Squire Technologies deployed their mature set of media and messaging gateways to insure a seamless interconnect between the VoLTE network and legacy 2G/3G/PSTN.

“This has been an exciting project to be involved in from the start with a unique set of challenges. It has combined solving todays leading edge VoLTE signalling challenges with flexible products and signalling expertise whilst also insuring seamless interconnect with legacy 2G/3G/PSTN. We look forward to being a continued part of Smile’s success in this project” said Simon Dinnage, Squire Technologies Business Development Director.
