Under a new partnership, Squire Technologies and Nextrac Telecommunications PTE Ltd have announced they will be working together to offer next-generation access to VoIP networks to and from Bangladesh.
A Media gateway is device that converts digital media streams in different telecommunications networks and allows multimedia communication across various networks like 2G, 3G, 4G, SS7 and PSTN.
The company was looking for a solution in order to allow traffic to and from Bangladesh, which needed to interconnect with the government based BTCL over SS7 using an STM1 interface.
Squire’s Sales Director, Sanjeev Verma (News - Alert), highlighted that the Nextrac solution displayed many of Squire’s strengths, “While we’re delighted to be part of the growth in the Asia-Pacific region, we’re particularly pleased about the Nextrac deployment as it reflects Squire’s ability to provide high quality carrier grade solutions in a cost effective manner.
Squire Technologies is a provider of NGN, TDM and IP telecommunications products and solutions with world class installation and support services. The company enables telecommunications companies who have previously been restricted to legacy SS7 and ISDN platforms to access VoIP networks by providing them signaling transfer points and protocol converters.
Nextrac required a telecommunication solution which would maintain their overall business ethos of high availability carrier grade services. The company recognised that they would need a dual redundant system which would provide transcoding capabilities and in built Media Gateway (News - Alert) Controller and Softswitch functionality
Managing Director, Ashraful Alam, has noticed the importance of scalability in selecting the Squire Technology Media Gateway. He added, “When searching for our interconnect solution, we recognised the Squire brand and sought to discover more about what their product could achieve. Being able to start with a single STM1 interface and upgrade to 10 STM1s or more was the critical factor in our selection process.”
