Squire Technologies presented the best solution to interconnect with our partner networks which was both well tested and easy to deploy.

Forum Networks, Ghana’s leading provider of Tele-conferencing solutions has recently implemented the largest conference bridge in West Africa, providing value added services to many of the continent’s largest mobile and VoIP operators, including MTN Ghana.

As part of their network roll-out Forum Networks needed an SS7 interconnect. To keep their upfront CAPEX low they wanted to utilise existing Cisco Media Gateways in their network rather than replace them with an SS7 enabled Media Gateway.

To achieve this they turned to SS7 specialists Squire Technologies who remotely deployed and installed the SVI-MGC SS7 Media Gateway Controller. This significantly reduced their upfront CAPEX and gave them the security of working with global SS7 specialists for the installation and support of their interconnect.

“Squire Technologies presented the best solution to interconnect with our partner networks which was both well tested and easy to deploy. We have had a lot of technical input from Squire right from the design phase to the project’s completion and we were impressed with their delivery”– Kow A. Sam, CEO, Forum Networks

Forum Networks is projecting rapid growth in traffic leaping from 3,000 to 10,000 concurrent calls within a year. This rapid growth trend is expected to accelerate as Forum expands into Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Liberia with the long-term goal to provide their service to all locations in Africa.

To scale at these levels a reliable SS7 to VoIP interconnect was required to continue to provide high quality and profitable service for Forum’s fixed and mobile customers.
