Upgrading Softswitch to Enable SS7 Interconnect Proves Hugely Efficient for UK based Core Telecom
Core Telecom was able to enhance their existing Squire Technologies Class 4 Soft Switch (SVI-C4) with SS7-IP interconnect via a remote software upgrade into ‘any to any’ NGN Media Gateway Controller.
The flexibility and rapid enhancement of the SVI-C4 supported the continued growth of Core Telecom while allowing them to maintaining the highest levels of service quality.
Core Telecom is an independent Telecommunications Network, which specialises in supplying bespoke, industry leading inbound call solutions, specifically designed to improve the way companies handle their telephony infrastructure. Focused on providing premium Wholesale termination at competitive, stable, mobile and UK landline termination rates; as well as thousands of memorable Non-Geographic numbers, Core Telecom is able to provide Control, quality and differentiation to its clients.
In 2010 Core Telecom installed a single plane Class 4 soft switch, from Squire Technologies, for ‘All IP’ routing and protocol conversion, enabling IP Exchange interconnect with BT.
Core Telecom took advantage of the flexibility provided by the SVI-C4 by continuing to work with Squire Technologies with a remote upgrade. This delivered not only interoperability with SS7 but also a carrier grade system architecture that will expand quickly and efficiently into the future.
“Strategically planning our system development with a reliable partner, who has a product portfolio that is designed to expand and support our growing needs, has proven to deliver outstanding results. With unparalleled ease of integration with SS7, the system enhancing upgrade ensured our customers continue to receive the highest quality of service available. From a management perspective, using a single online management system (SVI-MS) to control multiple boxes and features has made integration into our organisation seamless”, commented Sam Richardson, Senior Engineer, Core Telecom.
Simon Dinnage, Business Development Director of Squire Technologies added “As network dynamics evolve it is important for companies throughout the world to implement flexible solutions that will evolve and adapt to meet their ever changing needs. By providing cost effective, easy to migrate solutions, Squire Technologies is in a unique position to help us support our customers as they grow.”
As the ‘All IP’ world grows in dominance, providers need to build now with their future success in mind. By developing your system with a business partner that offers products designed to efficiently adapt and enhance telecommunications and NGN services it is the end user that benefits.
