Brooktrout's SS7 Platform Powers CBOSS' Short Messaging Service

8/31/2004 - Brooktrout Technology, Inc., a leading supplier of media processing, network interface, call control and signal processing products, announced that CBOSS Association, an international provider of IT services for the telecommunications industry, has selected its NS700TM SS7 platform as an integral part of its CBOSS Short Message Service (SMS) Centre platform. The messaging platform is being installed as part of MTS’s regional network in Krasnodar Territory. MTS is the largest mobile operator in Russia and the Ukraine with more than 22 million subscribers and 37% market share. Brooktrout’s SS7 platform will enable MTS to upgrade their existing SMSC to support a significantly higher message volume.

The CBOSS SMS Centre is a high performance short messaging solution that supports basic messaging services as well as a number of value-added services, such as pull/push messaging, email forwarding and SMS paging.

CBOSS deployed the SMS Service Centre to allow the network operator to send and sustain a high volume of message throughput. The SMS Centre is highly scalable and can cope with peak loads amounting to 250 messages per second. Network operators deploying the system can be assured that the system will maintain high reliability, performance and quality of service, even during peak subscriber activity. Brooktrout’s NS700 provides a higher signaling density and improved capacity for high-volume applications in a more cost effective package than CBOSS’ previous SS7 solution.

“The outstanding performance in the MTS regional networks was achieved with Brooktrout’s NS700 SS7 module in the SMS server system. The high performance characteristics of the NS700 and its suitability for a wide range of applications allowed us to install the solution quickly and easily,” said Mikhail Hametov, head of CBOSS Implementation Department.

The NS700 provides developers with global SS7 connectivity, leveraging technology that has been deployed in 70+ countries and has an installed base of over one million ports. Brooktrout's extensive range of SS7 modules allows developers to leverage the capabilities of the SS7 network and develop carrier-grade applications for SS7 circuit-switched call control, SS7/IP convergence, GSM MAP SMS, CDMA IS-41, and INAP Intelligent Network devices. The NS700 is at the heart of SS7 signaling gateways, enhanced service nodes, follow-me services, wireless applications, intelligent peripherals, and many more.
