Leading Indian triple play provider Sify Technologies Corporation chooses Squire Technologies’ SVI MGC to replace Cisco PGW and enhance voice services to customers in more than 200 metro areas.

Squire Technologies, signalling specialists to the telecoms industry, today announced that Sify Technologies Corporation, the leading provider of triple play residential and business broadband services in India, has chosen its SVI MGC solution to replace a legacy Cisco PGW softswitch and to provide interconnection and routing between NGN IP and PSTN networks.

Sify, which delivers broadband, voice and media services to more than 200 cities and metro areas across India, was faced with the challenge of replacing its legacy PGW 2200 Media Gateway Controller solution that had been declared “end of life” (EoL) by Cisco. In order to provide seamless service continuity to its customers, Sify needed to deploy a proven solution that offered future-proof capabilities to meet service expansion demands and replace the EoL solution.

“Voice remains a hugely important part of our innovative triple play bundles,” commented Birendra Singh, Head- Voice Technology Operations at Sify. “We see outstanding growth in both domestic and international traffic, so needed a solution that would both meet current and future needs. Squire Technologies was able to replace our existing Cisco solution and provide us with the interconnection we need to service our customers.”

The SVI MGC solution that has been deployed currently supports more than 10,000 concurrent calls in a fully redundant architecture, providing the quality of service and call continuity needed to support Sify’s growing customer base.

Importantly, the SVI MGC was able to seamlessly connect with the deployed base of third party media gateways, with the result that Sify protected its existing investments while positioning its network for future growth and expansion. In addition, the SVI MGC is compatible with other third party media gateways. This means that Sify can deploy additional transcoding capacity with gateways from Squire Technologies or other vendors.

“One of the key benefits of the SVI MGC is the ability to connect to and control a wide range of third party media gateway solutions,” said Zacchary Couldrick, Regional Sales Manager at Squire Technologies. “This delivers outstanding investment protection as existing assets can be maintained. This flexibility delivers outstanding cost benefits and ensures efficient capital management.”

The SVI MGC Media Gateway Controller enables clients to interface their VoIP networks to SS7 PSTN based telephone networks allowing the rapid launch of VoIP services. It provides a secure and proven option for the replacement of legacy solutions while extending the life of deployed Media Gateway products.
