VIVA calls on Squire Technologies’ Signalling Gateway solution for number portability service, delivering sustained, outstanding customer performance for more than six years

Summary: Squire Technologies’ SG solution provides secure ETSI / ANSI interworking, enabling VIVA to implement number portability services across multiple networks. In service for more than six years, the solution continues to provide a foundation for core network innovation and future NGN migration.

Dorchester, UK, 14th July 2014

Squire Technologies, the signalling specialists to the telecoms industry, today announced that VIVA, a leading mobile operator in the Dominican Republic and a subsidiary of Trilogy International Partners LLC, has deployed its Signalling Gateway solution, the SVI_SG to support number portability for SMS services with integrated signalling conversion.

As a leading mobile network operator, VIVA has to support interconnection with other networks and enable number portability for its subscribers across its range of services. The SVI_SG solution performs translation between the MAP and IS41 signalling used in GSM and CDMA based networks respectively. This functionality means that messages can be successfully routed from any destination to any required end-point and that number portability can be fully implemented.

“The Squire Technologies’ solution was first deployed in 2008. Since then, our network has grown and our traffic capacity has expanded. The solution has grown with us, delivering the complex functionality we need while providing outstanding performance,” commented Jose Hernandez, Core Operations Manager at VIVA. “It’s right at the heart of our network – and the performance levels enable us to provide the exceptional service that our customers expect.”

“Number portability is a critical function of any mobile network. It must be implemented with a completely robust solution in order to ensure both regulatory compliance and customer satisfaction. We’re proud that our platform has given flawless, sustained performance for six years and we are continuing to invest in its evolution,” said Zacchary Couldrick, Sales Manager at Squire Technologies. “Any mobile network operator looking to consolidate its network assets while securing a clear migration path to an NGN core should consider the benefits of working with our team.”

Confronting End-of-Life for Softswitches

How to protect your investments and maintain SS7 and VoIP interconnections

What do you do if a key vendor announces ‘End of Life’ (EoL) for a critical part of your network infrastructure? It’s a common problem and operators have to plan for such eventualities. Even so, it can be problematic, particularly if the original vendor doesn’t have a replacement or upgrade plan.

Many operators that have invested in third party hardware and software to power their VoIP and NGN networks are becoming increasingly challenged by such end of life (EoL) announcements from industry vendors, most notably Cisco.

For example, Cisco has announced EoL and End of Support programmes for its PGW and ITP products, raising concerns for future operations and investment protection in live networks and leaving operators wondering how they will maintain their valuable interconnection points with VoIP, SS7 PSTN, NGN IP and IMS networks. What should operators do to help them navigate such challenges and avoid service disruptions or unnecessary additional investments?

Squire Technologies, signalling specialists to the telecoms industry, provides a range of future-proof options to help operators overcome such issues. We have reaffirmed our commitment to continue investment and support of our successful range of SS7 Signalling products, which includes the SVI Media Gateway Controller (MGC), SVI Signalling Gateway (SG) and SVI STP solutions.

With deployments in more than 100 countries around the world, Squire Technologies provides the answer to EoL challenges, delivering robust VoIP and SS7 interconnection and enabling a ready-made solution for operators that need to replace legacy products. But it’s not just platforms that are reaching the end of their lives that are threatened – other network elements that are controlled by EoL products as the Cisco PGW are also threatened.

We’ve taken care of this too, as our SVI MGC, SG and STP products can be deployed with third party platforms, ensuring service continuity and that operators can invest confidently in their networks. This means there is no need to replace other solutions that are in place, ensuring that investment is directed where it’s needed and no unnecessary expenses are incurred.

Seen as the perfect replacement for the Cisco PGW and ITP, the SVI SS7 Signalling range enables clients to interface their VoIP networks to SS7 PSTN, NGN IP and IMS networks, allowing the rapid launch of VoIP services while extending the life of legacy Media Gateway solutions from a range of 3rd Party providers.

Our strategy is built on the gradual evolution of our core product line, alongside the introduction of new solutions. This means that new features can be requested by customers and rapidly implemented to suit changing circumstances. Legacy vendors can rarely match this unrivalled flexibility, while EoL notifications mean that future enhancements are uncertain. Squire Technologies removes the uncertainty surrounding investments and provides a stable partnership for future growth.

If you are concerned about EoL programmes for critical network elements such as softswitches, signalling gateways and media gateway controllers, why not get in touch to see how we can help protect your network and provide a solution that helps future growth?
