CMC Networks Reduced Costs by Consolidating Network Core and Delivering Number Portability Solution with Squire Technologies’ Integrated SBC Solution.
CMC Networks consolidates network core and reduces operating costs with Squire Technologies’ SBC solution. The SVI SBC provides a single platform to interconnect both SIP and H.323 endpoints and was enhanced with MNP / LNP capabilities to support the needs of corporate and wholesale customers.
Dorchester, UK, 5th June 2014. Squire Technologies, signalling specialists to the telecoms industry, today announced that CMC Networks, a leading independent telecoms operator in South Africa has deployed its SVI SBC solution in order to consolidate its network infrastructure and reduce costs.
The SVI SBC replaces six existing session border controller platforms, reducing the amount of rack space required in CMC’s datacentres and lowering operational costs. The new platform provides a single, centralised resource for the management of services and a robust solution that can scale for future growth. The solution delivers additional capacity at a lower cost, reducing the investments required to meet further capacity expansion.
“We selected the Squire Technologies’ solution because it enabled us to overhaul our core network and reduce costs, while meeting the high throughput we need for our valued customers,” said Jonathan Herbst, Senior VoIP Engineer of CMC Networks. “Our datacentres need to be efficient and fully optimised to meet customer requirements, so by reducing our own resource consumption, we can lower our own costs while freeing capacity for customer requirements.”
In addition to providing centralised session control capabilities, the SVI SBC also provided support for mobile and local number portability (MNP and LNP) services in South Africa, meeting regulatory requirements and ensuring that CMC’s customers can benefit from the range of porting options available.
The SVI SBC solution enables portability services to be implemented from a local database, reducing transit costs and delivering more efficient processing. The MNP / LNP capability was enabled through integration of an optional module from Squire Technologies’ range of intelligent service modules.
“The fact that our solution offers the flexibility to manage high volumes of traffic while integrating with local services such as MNP and LNP means that customers can benefit from the most efficient network architecture,” commented Zacchary Couldrick, Sales Manager for Squire Technologies. “We invest heavily in adapting our solutions to meet individual customer requirements, ensuring that they benefit from proven core technology but with the additional capabilities they need for their unique situation.”
CMC Networks has a broad footprint across Africa and beyond, with more than 100 managed point-of-presence sites globally. CMC’s commitment to network evolution and enhancement will see it replicate the SVI SBC solution in other territories to deliver further network efficiencies and cost reduction.
The Squire Technologies SVI SBC solution allows Service Providers, such as CMC Networks, to manage the interconnection of large numbers of different VoIP end points. It manages signalling and media policies and provides a unified interface to the core network. Supporting full protocol interworking, robust SIP trunking and comprehensive call routing control, it is a secure, reliable and highly scalable solution for VoIP networks. It can easily be extended with the addition of optional modules from the Squire Technologies’ range.
