Squire Technologies Deploys Cisco Compatible Media Gateway Controller into 50th Country

Share Article

Squire Technologies' latest deployment of their Cisco compatible Media Gateway Controller has successfully taken place for Telemach, in Slovenia. This means that the product is now in use in 50 countries worldwide.


Squire Technologies, a leading provider of SS7 and VoIP solutions to the telecoms industry, have announced that they have successfully deployed their Media Gateway Controller (MGC) for Telemach Slovenia. Telemach is a part of the Mid Europa Partners, a fund which amongst others owns Serbian telecommunications company SBB. Squire has a longstanding relationship with SBB, having previously installed the MGC for SBB subsidiaries in Serbia in 2009 with a further installation due in Bosnia later in 2012. With this latest deployment, Squire’s MGC is now used in 50 countries across the world.

Telemach was looking to further expand their network, and needed to establish interconnects with their existing Cisco based infrastructure, whilst maintaining the network’s dual redundant capabilities. Marko Miletic, Group Director for Voice Services, explained how Squire Technologies were able to meet their requirements, “Being the leading alternative provider of telephone service in Slovenia meant that we needed to be sure of the reliability of the service, whilst we also wanted to continue using our existing Cisco equipment as we moved into the VoIP market. Naturally, we considered many different providers for the Media Gateway Controller, including Cisco themselves with their PGW range. We found that the SVI-MGC of Squire was the most cost effective and crucially, an easy to implement solution.”

Sanjeev Verma, Squire Technologies’ Sales Director, was particularly pleased with the longevity of the relationship between the two companies, “Obviously we are happy that Telemach was able to meet their needs with our Media Gateway Controller, particularly in terms of enabling SS7 over their existing Cisco Media Gateways. The most satisfying element for us has been our ongoing relationship with SBB and Telemach, as we’ve been privileged to play a key role in working with them to develop their telephony network over the past few years. Thanks to our customer service and technical support we have turned a one-off purchase into a mutually beneficial on-going relationship which I am confident will continue for years to come.”

Initially released in 2004, the SVI-MGC is unique in that it enables legacy third party media gateways such as those from Cisco , AudioCodes and Alcatel-Lucent, to be used in networks which feature VoIP. Squire Technologies also recently reported record sales levels of the SVI-MGC, which they attribute to this compatibility along with industry developments such as Cisco announcing the end of life of their PGW series. The SVI-MGC is a suitable replacement for the PGW, as this recent installation for Telemach Slovenia demonstrates.
