FRISCO, Texas, Magna5 today announced it has selected Squire Technologies to integrate innovative signaling and interconnection technologies into Magna5’s managed cloud-based network to ensure robust delivery of services to customers.
Magna5 is a nationwide provider of managed IT, voice and connectivity solutions for mid-sized organizations that have multiple branch locations. Over the past year, Magna5 has engaged in a multi-phase digital modernization initiative to consolidate multiple infrastructure environments obtained from previous acquisitions into a unified, virtualized network that will provide faster delivery of its managed services and voice solutions. The initiative involves consolidating data centers, shifting circuits, phasing out legacy systems and creating a vibrant, streamlined digital network. Once completed, the refurbished network will enable Magna5 to deliver its managed services and voice solutions more efficiently to its customers with faster and more reliable traffic routing, multi-carrier failover capabilities and expanded cloud hosting and data backup/recovery functionalities.
As part of the modernization initiative, Magna5 will integrate Squire Technologies’ carrier-grade, virtual switched virtual interface-signal transfer point (SVI-STP) solution across its geographically diverse network. This will allow Magna5 to consolidate to a single vendor solution on a fully supported platform. The SVI-STP solution supports a wide range of interconnection points that simplify complex connectivity and routing between multiple networks, such as SS7, NGN, VoIP and next-generation IMS/LTE/4G signaling networks. Built-in redundancy and fraud detection ensure reliable connectivity and fraud prevention.
“With Magna5’s growing customer base, we are focused on network and operational efficiencies to ensure we can meet the demands of rapid product and service enablement. Squire Technologies’ SVI-STPs interconnected within our network enables us to eliminate overlapping technologies inherited through multiple acquisitions,” said Jason Cummins, SVP of Magna5 Voice Networks. “Once consolidation is complete, our engineers will have additional cycles to focus on delivering road-mapped projects.”
“The SVI-STP will allow Magna5 to achieve their goals of network consolidation and unification by providing a robust, flexible signaling core,” said Mike Peck, General Sales Manager at Squire Technologies Ltd. “The SVI-STP is part of our suite of signaling products which allows us to deploy an optimum solution today while offering a future-proof roadmap to next-generation Diameter networks via our Diameter Signaling Controller. We are delighted to be working with Jason and his team on this exciting project and being a part of Magna5’s success.”
