Current demand for VoIP communications will continue to impact on conventional telephony, but more ISPs and VoIP providers are now realizing they can benefit by terminating using the widely deployed country variants of SS7 ISUP. Furthermore major carriers actively promote the positive aspects of SS7 to ISPs and GSM operators where it provides high ACD and ASR, roaming, SMS signaling and access to the global hub.

"The economics of Squire Technologies' SS7 interconnect becomes quickly apparent to service providers once the return on investment is shown. Combined with the scaled pricing, where the purchase is linked to the volume of simultaneous calls (regardless of E1s) and the software only deployment the economics build a convincing case," said Andrew Cooper, Managing Director, Squire Technologies.

"With previous PSTN interconnect experience with MTN Uganda, the globally deployed SVI_MGC Media Gateway Controller was cost effective and a perfect fit for this requirement. Squire's SS7 interconnect now adds a level of service for Roke Telkom that users are demanding," said James Byaruhanga - CTO Roke Telkom, Uganda.

Additionally Squire Technologies have recently introduced a 'Pay As You Go' plan available to new ISPs and telecoms service providers on their Softswitch and Media Gateway Controller. This opens up a software only route to market for adding VoIP and SS7 services to their existing networks, with the ease that software deployment brings, ensuring maximum service uptime with remote installation and configuration and the added bonus of easy monthly payments.
