That “the world is shifting to all digital” is today rather stating the obvious. Gone are the days when I could wander to the video/dvd shop and rent myself the latest big movie and buy a big bag of popcorn. While I watched with a certain sadness as the local Video/DVD rental guys closed their doors I had no choice, if I wanted to continue watching films, I had to subscribe to the online providers. Now of course, it’s second nature and I expect to choose from a number of providers on my Smart TV, depending on who bought the rights to the new series of Game of Thrones first. I expect to be able watch a trailer, I expect to be able to rent SD or HD , I might want to purchase it, I might want to rent for 3 x days , hell, I may not want to pay a monthly subscription at all – I only want to pay for what I have watched – see BlinkBox etal.
Enough of the analogies. We know that the march of new technology is virtually unstoppable. In the Telecoms space we have all read a gazillion articles on what the Next Generation Networks (NGN), for example, VoIP/4G will bring; flexibility, costs savings and ease of application development. The point is the march of all IP networks in the Telco world is now a reality.

- What are the key technologies they need to support this transition?
- What are the defecto services carriers need to offer?

How can wholesale carriers resolve interconnection, peering and routing challenges for SS7, VoIP and IPX networks?
Wholesale carriers have a vital role to play in the telecoms value chain. They are a key link that enables operators and service providers to profitably deliver traffic to any destination. Most operators depend on leveraging wholesale carriers to deliver traffic to destinations they serve.
Carriers have to manage a complex array of interconnections. They also live in a dynamic environment in which costs change, weekly, daily or even hourly. To successfully deliver traffic and to ensure they derive profit from their activities, carriers need agile partners that can help them run their networks while ensuring a return on their investment.
This creates challenges. Even carriers with established infrastructure may need to extend their range of interconnection options – and have to manage traffic delivery across legacy, NGN IP and IMS networks simultaneously.
There may also be difficulties in managing a diverse array of elements. Consolidating network resources is another common challenge.
Squire Technologies solves these problem with a range of flexible and scalable VoIP and SS7 switching solutions, including its flexbile and scalable Media Gateway Controller (MGC).
Find out how one wholesale carrier secured the flexibility, adaptability and control it needed to both optimise its existing network and to obtain more efficient interconnection with partners in the future.
