Brooktrout and Squire Deliver SS7 Capabilities to Generic Mobile

5/12/2004 - Brooktrout Technology, Inc., a leading supplier of media processing, network interface, call control and signal processing products, and Squire Technologies, Signaling Specialists to the Telecoms industry, and supplier of cost effective, carrier grade signaling products, announced that they have worked with Generic Mobile in Sweden to deploy Squire’s SS7 to ISDN Protocol Converter, using Brooktrout’s NS700TM SS7 platform. Utilizing Brooktrout’s Consultant Access NetworkTM, Generic Mobile deployed the system in less than four weeks.

The SS7 to ISDN Protocol Converter was delivered by Squire Technologies to Generic Mobile, a Swedish mobile telecom operator. Brooktrout’s NS700 had previously been deployed in Sweden, so Generic Mobile had confidence that Squire Technologies could help them pass the stringent SS7 interconnection testing that is required by Skanova, the local PSTN carrier. The SS7 converter connects to the PSTN to deliver automated pager and short message service (SMS) alerts to critical paging applications.

“We required speedy development, fast deployment and help in migrating our data from ISDN to SS7 signaling. Brooktrout’s Consultant Access Network program proved to be a valuable resource that gave us access to a solution provider who could meet our needs,” said Arne Lindberg of Generic Mobile. “We evaluated gateways from three different suppliers on price and performance. The product that fulfilled our requirements best was the SS7 converter from Squire Technologies. In spite of the tight time schedule - less than one month from order to operation - everything worked from day one.”
