Squire Technologies’ flexible installation and support service played a pivotal role in rapidly streamlining our TDM network at a significantly reduced cost

WaveCrest are one of Europe’s largest providers of hosted telephony services, with increasing yearly revenues of £100M from its global wholesale and retail markets. To enhance their services to leading organisations in VoIP and calling card arenas WaveCrest undertook a major network migration project to implement a next generation network.

Rhys Williams, Chief Technical Officer WaveCrest “In addition to the proven SVI functional superiority, Squire Technologies’ flexible and timely installation and support services played a pivotally important role in rapidly streamlining and bridging our TDM network at a significantly reduced cost.”

In order to fully benefit from this migration a cost effective TDM solution supporting interworking between ETSI ISUP & UK IUP was required. After consulting many leading companies, WaveCrest chose 'SS7 Specialists' Squire Technologies, whose SVI-9220 SS7 Protocol Converter solution enabled WaveCrest to utilise their existing infrastructure and media gateways with a signalling only solution, resulting in a substantial reduction of the capital expenditure.

The Squire Technologies' SS7 Protocol Converter was integrated into the network specifically for seamless protocol conversion of UK IUP, providing a powerful, fully scalable SS7 Signalling solution with support for up to 128 SS7 Signalling links, dual redundancy and a fully featured management interface.

Simon Dinnage, Business Development Director, Squire Technologies. "Squire Technologies again shows that its SS7 expertise and specialist products were able to provide an elegant cost saving solution to a major service provider. We look forward to our continued relationship in providing WaveCrest with more solutions in the future."
