NSE's next generation carrier-grade switch, built using TelcoBridges' carrier-grade telecom platform, has been approved for SS7 interconnection to BT's network for unlimited route capacity.

TelcoBridges Inc. announces the next generation carrier-grade switch built by Net Solutions Europe (NSE) on TelcoBridges' proven carrier-grade telecom platform has passed, at the highest level possible, the rigorous testing required by British Telecom's NIF approval process. NSE's system has been approved for interconnection to BT's network for unlimited route capacity, enabling service providers to interconnect with BT's network using SS7 signaling.

"BT's approval of NSE's next generation carrier-grade switch at this level is recognition both of the quality of TelcoBridges' products and of NSE's platform," said Simon Talbot, Chief Engineer, NSE, "BT rarely grants such a high level approval for NIF testing."

"Starting immediately, NSE is offering its next generation carrier-grade switch, the DVMS-250, as a solution that service providers can use to connect directly with BT's network," continued Talbot, "or, for those who prefer an outsourced interconnect, NSE can offer a managed interconnect service. This will enable NSE to continue to build upon its' unique offerings for next generation carriers providing virtually unlimited capacities at hereto unseen price points in the UK market."

TelcoBridges' telecom platform integrates the features needed for carrier-grade operations, such as density, scalability, high-availability and fault tolerance, all of which contributed to the speedy and successful NIF approval.

"Using TelcoBridges' enabling technologies, NSE is able to offer interconnect services to BT's network for service providers using both TDM and VoIP," said Gaetan Campeau, President, Founder and EVP Sales of TelcoBridges. "This means VoIP service providers now have easy access to BT's network using NSE's solution. Plus it provides another avenue for service providers to access wholesale interconnect with the BT network."

TelcoBridges runs its SS7 signaling stack on the blade, which offloads the application server and improves call handling performance. For TDM service providers, NSE can use TelcoBridges' E1, T1, J1, DS3 or OC3/STM-1 interfaces with SS7, ISDN or CAS signaling. For VoIP service providers, NSE can use TelcoBridges' TB-VoIP Mezzanine™ and SIP signaling. All traffic is handed off to the BT network over TDM interfaces with SS7 signaling capabilities.

NSE's managed solution operates from geographically diverse locations in the UK with routes to the USA running to Boston and New York, via unconventional routes through Southport and Southern Ireland, in addition to traditional routes through London and southern UK fiber paths. NSE's managed solution currently benefits from an interconnection capacity to BT and other service providers in excess of 175 E1s.
