Tmedia is fully SIP-I compliant, which opens the door for solutions providers that require SIP-I connections to reach Tier-1 carrier networks such as Orange and SFR.

TelcoBridges, the leading designer and manufacturer of carrier grade VoIP media gateways and session border controllers, today announced that it has successfully passed the French Federation of Telecommunications’ tests for IP interconnection using the SIP-I interface.

The goal of the extensive testing was to verify Tmedia's ability to connect to Orange via SIP-I, which is an extension to the standard Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) that enables a wider range of services on VoIP networks.

The certification allows Paris and Lyon-based solutions provider AVM Informatique to connect its VoIP-based telecom services to Orange France’s network. In the past, France’s largest carrier required SS7/ISUP SPIROU interconnections to its network. Nowadays, Orange France recommends that operators connect to its network using SIP or SIP-I. TelcoBridges partner IT-Logiq sold the Tmedia gateways to AVM Informatique.

As a result of achieving full compliance, TelcoBridges’ Tmedia gateways and Tsbc session border controllers can now be seamlessly dropped into any network that is connected to, or needs to connect to, the Orange network using the SIP-I protocol. In 2014, TelcoBridges had undertaken similar testing with Orange, and achieved full compliance for Spirou SS7 interconnections.

Jérome Barbier, Operator Service Manager at AVM Informatique participated in the certification process, commenting: “The TelcoBridges support team’s rapid response and agility were key to the success of the certification. The Tmedia gateways define what it means to be carrier grade, and they easily passed the rigorous testing process.”

“Tmedia is fully SIP-I compliant, which opens the door for TelcoBridges and our partners to work with other solutions providers that require SIP-I connections to reach Tier-1 carrier networks such as Orange and SFR,” said Richard Gendron, CEO of TelcoBridges. “Very few media gateways offer SIP-I interconnection that meets Orange SIP-I ‘SPIROU’ specifications to the extent that Tmedia does.”

TelcoBridges will provide training on SIP-I capabilities, and it will present its new Session Border Controller, the Tsbc, at the upcoming TB Academy training sessions, taking place this Fall. Additional details are available at
