Squire Technologies Announces Launch of IMS Compatible Media Gateway Controller Function
Squire Technologies, a global provider of NGN, TDM and IP telecommunications products and solutions with world class installation and support services, recently introduced The Media Gateway (News - Alert) Controller Function.
Many large carriers today are making a shift to the IMS space by investing in 4G networks and providing LTE and VoLTE services. IMS, in order to continue meeting the needs of their clients’ networks successfully developed the SVI-MGCF.
The newly launched SVI-MGCF offers a comprehensive IMS enabled Media Gateway Controller Function, which helps 4G networks to seamlessly interconnect to traditional PSTN and GSM networks over SS7.
Simon Dinnage, Squire Technologies’ Business Development Director, said, “This is not so much a product launch for us as product evolution. We have been delivering Media Gateway Controllers for over 10 years and it has been a natural step for us to add the required 3GPP upgrades to make it an IMS compliant product. Our customers will be able to benefit from tried and tested carrier grade features whilst ensuring IMS compliance.”
Officials said that the SVI-MGCF provides a scalable way to integrate TDM interconnects into 4th generation IMS networks with flexible licensing that allows upgrade to 100,000 simultaneous calls, 256 x SS7 Signalling Links and control of up to 100 Media Gateways.
The MGCF, with the flexible deployment options is allowed to be deployed as a standalone MGCF integrating over industry standard MEGACO and SIGTRAN to incumbent Media and Signalling Gateways.
Squire helps telecommunications companies, who have previously been restricted to legacy SS7 and ISDN platforms, to access VoIP and IMS networks.
In May this year, TMC (News - Alert) reported that IVR Technologies, a software developer of IP-based enhanced services and real-time billing solutions, announced partnership with Squire Technologies to offer real-time billing, enhanced services and switching solutions to VoIP carriers worldwide.
