Squire Technologies Deploy Media Gateway Controller as a Cisco PGW Replacement for Telemach

Squire Technologies have reported the successful deployment of their Media Gateway Controller (SVI-MGC) for European integrator, Telemach. The deployment will act as a direct replacement for the Cisco PGW, which recently saw its last sale date pass.

Online PR News – 18-October-2012 – Dorchester, Dorset – Squire Technologies, the leading providers of SS7 Solutions to the telecommunications industry, are pleased to announce the successful deployment of a Media Gateway Controller for Telemach in Bosnia, their fourth installation for the company. Telemach are part of the Mid Europa Group, who also own Serbian telecommunications company SBB. Squire and SBB have a longstanding relationship, with previous deployments in Slovenia and Serbia, both of which also involved Squire’s Media Gateway Controller.

Telemach were seeking to rapidly expand their network whilst also continuing the usage of their existing Cisco Media Gateways. The End of Life announcement from Cisco regarding their PGW range of Softswitches and Software meant that Telemach were seeking a solution that offered full interoperability with their Media Gateways, and could be delivered in a software version; both of which they knew Squire could provide. Telemach’s Director of Voice Service, Marko Miletic explains, “Having used Squire on three previous occasions, we were confident of their ability to provide us with a solution to be used in conjunction with our Cisco Media Gateways, whilst the fact we could receive it as software meant we could also utilise existing servers. Once again, Squire have helped us to expand our network through providing greater functionality to our existing equipment, saving us money in the process.”

Squire’s Global Sales Director, Sanjeev Verma, noted the longevity of relationship between the two companies, “Whilst we’re always pleased to see customers return to us for further business, it’s particularly pleasing when it’s for the same product as it speaks to the reliability and efficiency of the product. In this instance, we were able to provide a software only solution that enabled Telemach to install rapidly and continue the expansion of their network.”
Squire’s Media Gateway Controller, which was deployed for Telemach in a dual redundant formation, has been one of Squire’s most popular products this year, as the company also announced that it is now deployed in more than 50 countries worldwide.
