Cyprus based quad-play operator Cablenet selects Squire Technologies’ virtualised Session and Media controllers to consolidate their Fixed and Mobile voice network.
“Cablenet has always leveraged leading edge technology to support innovation, seamless service delivery and enable rapid network growth. By selecting Squire Technologies products we continue this trend. Not only will we be able to leverage the benefits of a virtual environment but also the benefits of an integrated solution from a single vendor.” – Panayiotis Kouloumbrides, Voice Network Manager, Cablenet.
Initially Cablenet was looking to replace its end-of-life Cisco PGW product but this soon widened to incorporate its incumbent Session Border Controllers. Squire Technologies innovative controller architecture allows media to be easily distributed both in legacy and IP networks. In a virtualised SIP network this can be further enhanced to provide automated load balancing, elasticty and failover.
“Cablenet runs a high-end, forward thinking telecoms network. We understood that in the first instance Cablenet needed to migrate its existing products to a fully supported product set with a committed roadmap. Once the core services have been migrated we can then work with Cablenet to take advantage of our technology to optimise and innovate. We very much look forward to our continued partnership with Cablenet.” – Mike Peck, Global Sales Manager, Squire Technologies.
Founded in 2003, Cablenet is the only independent alternative telecommunications provider in Cyprus and has grown rapidly to become a leading quad-play provider of broadband, television, fixed and mobile telephony services in the island. Cablenet continues to pioneer by virtue of its advanced technological infrastructure, its well-trained staff and the introduction of innovative applications of modern technology into the Cyprus market.
About Squire Technologies Ltd
Operating since 2001, Squire Technologies Ltd provides product solutions and expertise in LTE, VoLTE, VoIP and SS7 markets to Fixed and Mobile operators, MVNO’s, Equipment Vendors, Integrators and Solution Providers in 100+ countries.
Squire Technologies, signalling specialists to the telecoms industry, today announced that Sify Technologies Corporation, the leading provider of triple play residential and business broadband services in India, has chosen its SVI MGC solution to replace a legacy Cisco PGW softswitch and to provide interconnection and routing between NGN IP and PSTN networks.
Sify, which delivers broadband, voice and media services to more than 200 cities and metro areas across India, was faced with the challenge of replacing its legacy PGW 2200 Media Gateway Controller solution that had been declared “end of life” (EoL) by Cisco. In order to provide seamless service continuity to its customers, Sify needed to deploy a proven solution that offered future-proof capabilities to meet service expansion demands and replace the EoL solution.
“Voice remains a hugely important part of our innovative triple play bundles,” commented Birendra Singh, Head- Voice Technology Operations at Sify. “We see outstanding growth in both domestic and international traffic, so needed a solution that would both meet current and future needs. Squire Technologies was able to replace our existing Cisco solution and provide us with the interconnection we need to service our customers.”
The SVI MGC solution that has been deployed currently supports more than 10,000 concurrent calls in a fully redundant architecture, providing the quality of service and call continuity needed to support Sify’s growing customer base.
Importantly, the SVI MGC was able to seamlessly connect with the deployed base of third party media gateways, with the result that Sify protected its existing investments while positioning its network for future growth and expansion. In addition, the SVI MGC is compatible with other third party media gateways. This means that Sify can deploy additional transcoding capacity with gateways from Squire Technologies or other vendors.
“One of the key benefits of the SVI MGC is the ability to connect to and control a wide range of third party media gateway solutions,” said Zacchary Couldrick, Regional Sales Manager at Squire Technologies. “This delivers outstanding investment protection as existing assets can be maintained. This flexibility delivers outstanding cost benefits and ensures efficient capital management.”
The SVI MGC Media Gateway Controller enables clients to interface their VoIP networks to SS7 PSTN based telephone networks allowing the rapid launch of VoIP services. It provides a secure and proven option for the replacement of legacy solutions while extending the life of deployed Media Gateway products.
