Squire Technologies, the signalling specialists to the telecoms industry, are pleased to announce that they have enabled US carrier CoreTel to create new services over their Media Gateway Controller.

These new services are the latest development in the two companies’ long running relationship, which began over 6 years ago when CoreTel acquired Signalling Transfer Points and Media Gateway Controllers for their traffic termination service which hosts 20,000 concurrent calls. The latest solution again utilises the Media Gateway Controller alongside Squire’s SQL Software Development Kit (SQL SDK) to enable a new origination service. Upon the call originating, the Media Gateway Controller gathers information such as LNP, 800 and CNAM utilising the SQL SDK, in order to route the call based on CoreTel’s chosen routing logic.

This isn’t the first time that CoreTel have benefitted from the SQL SDK, as it initially provided ease of management for their MGC configuration, as they could implement routing logic immediately across each MGC instance rather than changing each MGC individually. As their services evolved, so too did their requirements from their SQL functionality, as their CEO, Bret Mingo, explains; “When we utilised the SQL Software Development Kit in 2007 with the MGCs we were impressed with how it improved our management and administration of our system, so it was logical to look to the SDK again for our more recent traffic origination service. The SQL SDK allowed us to create a solution to perform LNP, 800 and CNAM look-ups in cooperation with the incumbent MGCs. In short, the SQL SDK has allowed us to develop the services we wanted to deliver, in the time frames we wanted to them in.”

Squire Technologies Business Development Director, Simon Dinnage, pointed to the flexibility of the SQL SDK as one of the key factors behind the ongoing relationship with CoreTel, “When we initially investigated developing the SQL SDK we knew that it would have a number of different applications; CoreTel have been a great testament to its versatility. We’ve seen the SDK deployed alongside a number of our products, which illustrates just how flexible the service is. We’re pleased to be able to deliver the possibility of customisation to our customers, such as CoreTel who require a solution to allow them to create their own service logic.”

Squire’s SQL Development Kit can be used across the entire SVI range of products, from the Media Gateway, Signal Transfer Points and Protocol Converters which reside the TDM marketplace, through to the Session Border Controllers and Class 4 Softswitches which form Squire’s VoIP based offering.
