Australia’s Over the Wire Partners With Squire Technologies on Major Connectivity Upgrade
A leading Australian IT and telecommunications provider has deployed Squire Technologies state-of-the-art media gateway technology as part of its strategy to become one of the nation’s top tier voice carriers.
ASX-listed Over the Wire is a leading B2B provider of connectivity solutions through its private network, SD-WAN, and business internet solutions. The company has recently completed its multi-year Carrier Interconnect project and can now offer full-service voice capabilities.
The investment in its network saw it join an exclusive group of true ‘Tier 1’ voice network operators in the country including Telstra and Optus.
The project involved using Squire Technologies’ Media Gateway Controller Function (MGCF) to build connectivity between Over the Wire’s platform and Telstra.
The completion of the Carrier Interconnect project means Over the Wire has also laid a platform to carry voice internationally into Australia and can deliver a high-quality telephony product that works seamlessly with the company’s suite of data, voice, cloud and security solutions.
The IMS compliant MGCF product is deployed in many Tier 1 and Tier 2 carriers where it provides extensive interworking support between multi-generation core networks. Squire Technologies solutions are focussed on meeting the increasing demands from global carriers and CSP’s managing and routing signalling traffic over multiple protocols and multi-vendor network entities.
Jay Binks, Over the Wire Chief Technology Officer – Collaboration
“Squire Technologies provided fantastic value for money while delivering a premium technology solution equal to others on the market.
Becoming a Tier 1 voice carrier has been an important step in the growth of Over the Wire that enables us to better support our customers and deliver sophisticated solutions for businesses,” Mr Binks said.
“We are now far less reliant on third-party providers, we are unencumbered by legacy technology and have increased control over number porting, call quality and fault resolution across our voice network. Over the Wire can now offer full-service voice capabilities like other Tier 1 carriers in Australia, while bringing our agile approach to better serve customer needs.
We can also now better access the wholesale voice market carrying voice into Australia, which is a really exciting opportunity for the business. Being able to access the international wholesale market provides a new avenue of growth and we’re inspired about the possibilities of being a global carrier.
We have been able to differentiate ourselves domestically against our peers by providing an exceptional self-service experience, and supporting our wholesale partners with powerful APIs to simplify the process for our customers. The Carrier Interconnect project and our launch into the international wholesale voice market is all part of our commitment to delivering an outstanding telecommunications and IT network that is reliable, affordable, fully integrated and secure.
I want to thank the team at Squire Technologies for the role they have played in helping us complete our year Carrier Interconnect project, particularly for their expertise in multi-generational core network interop.”
Ben Teversham, Sales Manager at Squire Technologies
“We’re delighted to support Over the Wire in delivering a cost-effective solution that supports their multi-generation requirements through our signalling platform Sigla. Here at Squire Technologies our solutions are in high demand as network operators strive to serve customers that reside on networks that reflect a wide range of technology generations.”
Sigla brings a homogenous layer to the management and operation of multi-generation networks, freeing operators from the burden of managing multiple core networks, and reducing network complexity and operating costs.
