Group Managing Editor, TMCnet
Moldavian ISP StarNet has reportedly selected Squire Technologies' Media Gateway (News - Alert) Controller SVI-MGC to provide a carrier grade VoIP service.
According to a press release the SVI-MGC supports and inter-works directly between SS7, SIP and H.323.
The solution can be used to control a number of third-party media gateways, including those manufactured by Cisco (News - Alert), Audiocodes, Nuera and Lucent Technologies.
Squire's SVI-MGC provides SS7 capabilities and supports all protocols on the media gateway including ISDN, R2 and CAS, thus allowing for comprehensive PSTN breakout to VoIP networks.
The company claims its SVI-MGC Media Gateway Controller is even suitable for incumbent networks, with added interoperability provided over MEGACO/H.248.
"Not only was it apparent that Squire Technologies shared our philosophy of exceeding customer expectations with robust services but their product reliability, user interface & technical expertise was exactly what we needed to be assured of long term success," said Suprunov Gherman, Marketing Director of StarNet (News - Alert), in the release. "We were particularly impressed with the remote deployment of this 'software only' solution. It allowed for very efficient integration, highly specialised testing and excellent Return On Investment (ROI)."
Simon Dinnage, Business Development Director at Squire Technologies, said the company is experiencing “much greater demand for SIP-I as industry moves towards Next Generation Networks (News - Alert) (NGN).”
“StarNet has a bold vision for the future and we are pleased to have provided another client with a product that matches not only their current requirements, but also support their growth into the future,” Dinnage said. “Our focus has always been to deliver flexible, future proof technology that provides outstanding ROI to our clients. StarNet has a bright future and we are looking forward to supporting them all the way there."Patrick Barnard is a senior Web editor for TMCnet, covering call and contact center technologies.
