Squire Technologies, provider of carrier grade telecommunications products and services, has enabled U.S. carrier CoreTel to create new services over its Media Gateway (News - Alert) Controller, which enables clients to interface their VoIP networks to SS7 PSTN-based telephone networks, allowing the rapid launch of VoIP services, NAS Model Dial-UP and distributed networks. The latest solution utilizes the Media Gateway Controller alongside Squire’s SQL Software Development Kit (SQL SDK) to enable a new origination service.
CoreTel provides Carriers, ISPs and ASPs with tailored telecommunications services, leveraging voice and data convergence.
Upon the call originating, the Media Gateway Controller gathers information such as LNP, 800 and CNAM utilizing the SQL SDK in order to route the call based on CoreTel’s chosen routing logic.
“When we utilized 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,” said Bret Mingo, CEO, Coretel. “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.”
With low cost, reliable, high bandwidth IP networks available for distribution of signaling, Squire Technologies’ SS7 C7 Signaling Gateway provides the means to bridge the SS7 network from the traditional PSTN and mobile TDM interconnects to IP. The SVI-SG provides an SS7 signaling gateway environment backhauling TDM SS7 information using international IETF standards of SIGTRAN.
“When we initially investigated developing the SQL SDK we knew that it would have a number of different applications; CoreTel has been a great testament to its versatility,” said Simon Dinnage, business development director, Squire Technologies. “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 customization to our customers, such as CoreTel who require a solution to allow them to create their own service logic.”
Squire Technologies’ SQL Development Kit can be used across the entire SVI range of products, from the media gateway, signal transfer points and protocol converters to the session border controllers and class 4 softswitches, which form Squire’s VoIP-based offering. The core of the SVI_C4 Class 4 Softswitch is a powerful, robust signaling engine with a number of optional "add-ons", allowing clients to deliver carrier grade VoIP services.
