They provide carrier grade core network signalling products and solutions such as Gateway MSC (GMSC), Signalling Transfer Point (STP), Diameter Suite (DRA, DEA, IWF) & SMSC to Tier 1 and Tier 2 providers and MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) and MVNEs (Mobile Virtual Network Enablers). They are expanding their offering to their customers by including Summa Networks’ NextGen HSS (Home Subscriber Server) and HLR (Home Location Register) in their product portfolio.

Summa Networks’ carrier grade HLR/HSS technology for MVNOs and other broadband and telecommunications service providers combines LTE HSS, IMS HSS and HLR in a single piece of software and enables seamless interworking between 3G, 4G and 5G. NextGen HSS is particularly suitable for IoT deployments.

“Squire Technologies help carriers overcome signaling interworking challenges across all generations of networks, allowing them to future proof their core network while maintaining backward compatibility. Our biggest strength is sharing what we have learnt working for 400+ operators in 150+ countries in the last 20 years. We choose partners who have similar ability and experience to adapt to the interworking challenges, and we have pleased to have chosen Summa Networks.” says Mike Peck, General Manager – Sales, at Squire Technologies. According to Javier Martin, Chief Executive Officer at Summa Networks: “Our NextGen HSS starts to be recognized in the industry as a great choice for legacy replacement on the way to explore IoT and 5G as new lines of business for carriers of all sizes and geographies. The joint solution with Squire products goes beyond the HLR/HSS reach and represents an opportunity for carriers of any kind to own their subscribers’ data and therefore customize their services to optimize their revenues. We recommend it for a complete and scalable offer, adaptable to the needs of each Network Operator.”
