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.

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.
