Interconnects to major international telecommunication operators have been in increasing demand across the past 12 months, according to a provider to the industry. Squire Technologies, who offer a managed Interconnect service to operators such as BT, Telecom Italia and France telecom, have reported record sales for their services, as companies strive to offer the enhanced reliability and reputation such interconnects can provide.
The increased demand for this service has coincided with an increase in complexity in some of the testing required for IP Interconnects, which had previously been simpler than the traditional SS7 Interconnect process. Squire's Operations Manager, Brad Knight, discussed the progressing in the complexity of the tests, "BT are one example of how interconnect testing has become more stringent in recent years, in that their SIP Approval used to be simpler than their SS7 Interconnect testing. Recently, both types of testing have become increasingly detailed, but with our experience and success rate, more companies are turning to us to help them through. Our team assist in areas such as paperwork completion through to being on hand during the testing window, which helps make the process as smooth as possible."
One of the more recent customers to utilise Squire's Interconnect service are Invoco, who were seeking an Interconnect with BT. Invoco's Managing Director, Jeremy Strong, was impressed by the Squire support, "Squire's support throughout the certification process has been exemplary. They were able to handle our questions promptly which helped us to achieve the desired result."
Reflecting on the reasons why companies are choosing Squire for this service, Sales Director Sanjeev Verma pointed to the company's history, "With deployments in over 70 countries worldwide, Squire has done more SS7 & VoIP interconnects than most players in this marketplace. It was only natural to offer our expertise to existing customers as well as new customers to assist them in improving the go-to-market time for their services and to achieve increased ROI on their CAPEX whilst at the same time reducing their OPEX."
Squire's Interconnect service works across their service range, from the TDM based products such as the Signalling Transfer Point, gateway products such as the Media Gateway through to the VoIP Based Products such as the Session Border Controller .
