Telco Fraud Prevention in Real-time

Telco Fraud PreventionTelco Fraud Prevention in Real-time

The global annual loss to the Telecoms industry from fraud is currently estimated by the CFCA (Communications Fraud Control Association) to be $29.2 billion. As the volume and sophistication of fraud increases we look at how operators are currently protecting themselves and how they can further reduce their losses by real-time network products.

IMS whitepaper

ims2018 thumbnailIMS is a success story... What's next?

Since its inception in 1999 the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) has been the underlying network architecture for 4G rollout worldwide. Successfully standardising the delivery of IP telco networks by splitting the control layer from the network and application layer we look at what the drivers will be for IMS networks in the next 5 years, and what impact SDN, network slicing and 5G will have.

Solving the 4G LTE Roaming Puzzle whitepaper

3g4g roaming whitepaperWe look at the challenges faced by 4G LTE operators looking at providing roaming services and interconnect with legacy networks.

As the growth of 4G LTE networks gathers pace many operators are hitting unforeseen challenges as they look to interconnect with legacy networks and ensure their subscribers aren’t left hanging when they step out of their home network.

Squeezing more from IMS, NGN and Legacy Networks whitepaper

TAS whitepaperRead our whitepaper to see how an agnostic application layer helped our clients achieve these goals.

The rise of the OTT’s and the increasing abundance of IP networks means operators are in a constant battle to retain and seek new revenue. Keeping existing subscribers happy whilst looking to take advantage of evolving technologies in the IMS, VoWiFi, 4G, 5G and IoT space is a fine balancing act.

Solving IoT Security whitepaper

TAS whitepaperSolving IoT security - a mixture of innovative technology and sound network design.

Ericsson predict that IoT devices will outnumber mobile devices this year in their IoT Forecast report. Furthermore they predict that the number of IoT devices will continue to grow at an annual compound rate of 21% to 2022 resulting in 18 billion IoT devices worldwide, 1.5 billion on mobile networks.

Why NFV projects are failing to deliver in Telco networks whitepaper

Why NFV is failing in telecomsWhy NFV projects are failing to deliver in Telco networks.

The orchestration of elastic on-demand processing power and bandwidth de-livered to providers in a pay-what-you-eat model is unstoppable. But does it follow that you can apply this technology to core telecom network infrastructure, and if so why are we increasingly reading reports by industry analysts regarding the lack of any live Telco network NFV rollouts?

SMS Revenue & Growth whitepaper

sms revenue growthSMS - Revenue and growth still to be had

As late as 2014 it was predicted that there would be a continued decline in SMS traffic worldwide with the exception of emerging markets. The ascendancy of OTT apps is in no doubt, and for P2P (Person 2 Person) communication its dominance will continue to grow for a wide range of reasons.

Cisco Migration Planning whitepaper

cisco migration managementMigration Management from Cisco SS7 Products

As Cisco PGW and ITP products reach end-of-life and support comes to an end, operators can confidently invest for the future with SquireTechnologies.Back in 2011 Cisco announced End-of-Life for their SS7 MGC and STP products; the PGW 2200, and Cisco ITP respectively. Fast forward and the time that remains for operators to benefit from support on these items is rapidly running out, with the final date for support renewals closing at the end of December 2016.

Case Studies

Delivering More Effective Networking

comsys ghana case studyComsys Ghana Migrates to NGN and Delivers Enhanced Business Services

Comsys Ghana is an established provider of a range of enterprise connectivity and communication solutions in West Africa. As a result of a growing subscriber base and network complexity, the company approached Squire Technologies to provide a solution that would deliver efficient routing and enhanced operational control over their network.

Diameter Interworking case study

diameter interworkingEnabling Connectivity with Diameter Interworking Function

As migration to LTE networks continues to gather momentum, many operators are confronted with the challenge of connecting new infrastructure to legacy systems and networks. The problem is that LTE infrastructure – and the IMS core, which is a requirement for the support of voice services in LTE networks – takes advantage of Diameter signalling for the management and delivery of key functions. In legacy networks, these functions were supported by SS7 signalling, specifically the Mobile Application Part, or MAP.


http://squire-technologies.co.uk/docs/IWF_Case_Study.pdf

Fixed Operator case study

fixed operator case studyNetworking Optimisation and Centralised Number Portability Management

Sometimes, network operators can achieve success that delivers more traffic and growth than they had forecast in their original network planning. At the same time, critical, deployed equipment can be subject to forces beyond their control, such as when a vendor declares a product line end of life (EoL). These two influences can have a powerful impact and force a network operator to evaluate its network evolution strategy both to meet unprecedented demand and also to resolve continuity of supply issues. It can be an opportunity to both secure critical network elements and to consider a more effectively optimised infrastructure for the future.


http://squire-technologies.co.uk/docs/fixed-operator-case-study.pdf

Mobile Network Operators (MNO) case study

mno case studyBuilding a More Efficient Roaming Infrastructure while Controlling Cost

Roaming is a key part of the range of services that a Mobile Network Operator (MNO) needs to support. It’s essential to enable visitors to a network to be able to enjoy the same services and capabilities that they do in their home network. This means that operators need to be able to support a complex array of interconnection points in order to ensure that roaming customers can maintain service consumption.


http://squire-technologies.co.uk/docs/mno-case-study.pdf

Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) case study

mvno case studyCore Mobile Network Consolidation and Enhancement with Integrated GMSC

While some MVNOs operate without any network infrastructure, others have deployed signalling and media solutions to support a range of call routing options and differentiated service possibilities. Such infrastructure can assist an MVNO diversify its service portfolio and enhance operating margins.

System Integration case study

system integrationDelivering a Flexible Solution SIP to TCAP Gateway to Extend Product Performance

Systems Integrators are confronted with a continuous stream of challenges. They must deliver solutions based on their core elements and components but ensure that they fit into a widely differing set of environments. This means that they need to find partners that can provide key enabling technology or solutions that provide additional functionality that extends their core offer.

Triple Play Provider case study

triple play providerCustomised solutions for a future proof network

A national cable operator with a rich triple-play offer enjoyed a hard-won reputation for investment in new services. It had achieved consistent differentiation by bringing new services to its customers and adding diversity to its portfolio to meet their needs.

Wholesale Carriers case study

wholesale carriersEnabling delivery to a range of destinations

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. Of course, there are a few operators with global reach through their own networks, but these are the exception rather than the rule. For the rest, they depend on leveraging carriers to deliver traffic to destinations they serve.
