We were looking for a carrier grade Session Border Controller solution. The Squire SVI-SBC ticked all the right boxes in terms of VoIP interoperability, price, installation and post sales support
london (PRWEB UK) 4 July 2012
Squire Technologies, are pleased to announce that they have deployed a Session Border Controller for VoipQ, one of Europe’s leading providers of VoIP services to the SME sector.
The SBC deployment utilised Squire’s SQL Development Kit (SDK) which allowed VoipQ to create their own service logic, thereby enabling them to make decisions on service factors such as routing and billing.
VoipQ, who are based in the Netherlands, were seeking carrier grade Session Border Controllers to further expand their Wholesale VoIP business. In order to maintain their high-availability services, VoipQ needed a dual redundant system with the ability to dictate their own service parameters.
Ryan Kalkhoven, VoipQ’s Managing Director, explained that using the SDK was a decision made after the SBC’s deployment, “We were looking for a carrier grade Session Border Controller solution. The Squire SVI-SBC ticked all the right boxes in terms of VoIP interoperability, price, installation and post sales support. Once we began to deploy the solution we soon realised that the volume and complexity of the routing would be handled far better through an external SQL database. We spoke with Squire and they said this would not be an issue and that they would develop this functionality using their SQL Development Kit – the SVI-SDK. We now manage the database ourselves updating end points and routing through our back end office systems.”
Simon Dinnage, Squire’s Business Development Director, noted that the SDK is an increasingly popular service with Squire’s customers, “Traditionally, providers would deliver products such as the SBC with service logic already implemented via their own SQL databases. As the industry has evolved, we’ve understood the need to deliver a greater array of functionality to our customers, and the SDK is a natural progression for us. The SDK has seen the fastest growing demand of any of our services, which is understandable as telecommunication providers will always seek to implement their own best-practice logic, which is exactly what the SDK allows.”
Squire’s SDK allows the customer to define their own routing logic via industry standard SQL Stored Procedures. These are stored on the Database Management System to be triggered over an SQL-API whenever a routing decision is required. What this means for the customer is a far greater degree of choice and flexibility as the customer decides on the routing criteria and logic. The SDK also allows the customer to access their current subscribers/routing databases allowing them an improved speed of deployment.
