Simfony select Squire Technologies signalling solutions for their IoT platform

Simfony offers a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) Solution that enables immediate IoT infrastructure to communication providers such as MNOs, MVNOs, satellite providers and application developers, allowing them to benefit from the exponential growth in the IoT market.

“At the Network Layer of our platform we need to manage the signalling transport that delivers IoT between our virtual mobile core, multiple operator interconnects and our clients. It is critical for us to choose a partner whose expertise can not only bridge 2G, 3G and 4G networks but whose products offer high availability, scalability and flexibility out-of-the-box.”
– Stefan Anghel, CTO, Simfony.

Simfony are deploying Squire Technologies’ Diameter Signalling Controller (SVI-DSC) and Signal Transfer Point (SVI-STP) to manage 2G, 3G and 4G signalling traffic. They will be deployed into Simfony’s cloud environment to ensure speed of deployment, scalability and elasticity for both service providers and carriers using the platform.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for us. Simfony are at the leading edge of cloud-based IoT infrastructure delivery and have an innovative product offering. We look forward to working with them to deploy our own innovative signalling products and being the signalling piece of their puzzle, and continued success!” 
– Sanjeev Verma, CEO, Squire Technologies.

Roaming In The South Pacific

Vodafone French Polynesia deploy Squire Technologies’ STP to solve roaming interconnect challenges.

Vodafone French Polynesia was launched in the beautiful South Pacific islands on the 17th June 2013. As part of the deployment, the Polynesian network was understandably looking to deliver international roaming, but hit an interconnect problem with one of their onward carriers. As with all network rollout problems there were a number of potential solutions. Naturally, Vodafone FP were looking to fix this problem as quickly as possible, but they also wanted a product solution with the functionality to be extended in the future, as and when their service evolved.

“It was refreshing to work with a team that were able to rapidly assimilate our requirements and advise on a deployment program that solved our immediate and longer term requirements.”
Paul Desvignes
Mobile Core Network Engineer, Vodafone French Polynesia

As speed was of the essence Squire Technologies were able to deliver a virtualised solution while Vodafone FP supplied the tin. Working remotely, Squire Technologies commissioning teams installed and configured the gateway product alongside Vodafone FP network engineers. In early 2014, as planned at the outset, Vodafone FP decided to purchase an upgrade license that transformed their gateway product into a fully-fledged Signal Transfer Point (STP). This provided Vodafone FP a future-proof solution that they still use today to deliver their international roaming service.

Of course time does not stand still and network technologies continue to evolve at a furious pace with the rollout of next generation LTE, VoLTE and VoIP in particular. Squire Technologies products have evolved alongside these changes whilst keeping the same commitment to problem solving and delivery.

“We are proud to be working alongside this innovative carrier discussing and proposing next generation Diameter, 4G Roaming and VoIP solutions. We wish Vodafone French Polynesia every success for the future.”
