SS7 STP | Reducing OPEX & Delivering AIN Services for CLECs & ICPs

Share Article

Consolidating your SS7 network not only reduces operating costs significantly but also brings secondary benefits that improve the delivery of AIN services. The challenge facing CLECs and ICPs, particularly within US markets, is how to optimize signaling traffic correctly and deliver leaner AIN services such as CNAM, LNP and 800.

Signal Transfer Point

"We work closely with our clients on their existing infrastructure to deliver the future of our industry today" Joe Williamson, Sales Manager Americas

CLECs (Competitive Local Exchange Carriers) and ICPs (Integrated Communication Providers) stand to benefit substantially by centralizing multiple carrier signaling termination via an STP solution. Such 'Signaling Aggregation' allows providers to manage signaling from one central point and saves them from establishing and managing multiple POP (Point Of Presence) connections, translating into cost savings and Reduced Operational Expenditure. Once centralized, this opens a new range of secondary opportunities to streamline AIN services.

Access to the SS7 Advanced Intelligent Network (AIN) delivers beneficial services such as Caller Name ID CNAM, LNP (Local Number Portability) & 800, and is essential to generating revenues. Yet providers are spending significant amounts of money through the rental charges and extra 'dipping fees' they pay the major carriers such as TNSi, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. With a centralized STP controlling the signaling, 'inline dipping' of AIN services enables previously unsupported switches to access CNAM and LNP dips directly from the providers network at significantly reduced rates.

Squire Technologies' SVI-STP Signaling Transfer Point, allows operators to deploy 'signaling aggregation', manage a single SS7 interconnect and enables the provision of 'inline dipping' with obvious cost savings as well accelerating future network development.
