MERA Systems and TelcoBridges Enhance Carriers’ Networks with Compliance Tested Solutions
Canada-based developers join efforts to provide telcos with a robust solution for higher capacity requirements
Toronto, ON, February 15, 2009 – MERA Systems, a reputable developer of software solutions for telecommunication carriers, today announced its partnership with TelcoBridges Inc., а leading supplier of hardware and software for telecom system integrators, resellers, and solution developers to provide telecom carriers with comprehensive solutions.
The interoperability testing conducted by these two companies was aimed at validating the compatibility and testing the performance of The Tmedia™ family of media gateways from TelcoBridges with MERA Systems’ high-performance softswitch MVTS Pro. The results showed seamless SIP interoperability between the companies’ products as well as extremely high efficiency of solutions working together. With completed interop testings, MERA Systems and TelcoBridges see technological synergy in their products that closely complement each other to make complete solutions for telecom operators.
Being launched two years ago, MVTS Pro has already gained recognition among telecom carriers globally and has proven to become the company’s flagman product. Ultra-scalable and high-end, this IMS-compliant platform for carrier-grade VoIP traffic management comprises the features to cover all the needs that telcos can have today – almost unlimited scalability and unique combination of collection, switching and transcoding of VoIP traffic as well as efficient management of signaling and media. Able to simplify network management chores and ensure top-notch fault-tolerance, MVTS Pro perfectly fits carriers’ requirements for redundancy, scalability and multi-protocol support.
The TelcoBridges Tmedia™ TMG5800 is a carrier-grade media gateway that meets the needs of service providers looking to drive convergence between TDM and IP networks, consolidating multiple devices for signaling, connectivity and IVR into a single unified device and simplifying OAM&P requirements. A single TMG5800 media gateway unit provides capacity of 2,048 voice ports and the flexibility to mix and match TDM and IP services such as SS7, ISDN, SIGTRAN, SIP and H.248 across T1/E1/J1, DS-3 and STM-1 interfaces. The TMG5800 can also host additional 3rd party applications such as softswitches and session border controllers locally, further answering the need for device consolidation and convergence. With an average 66% less power consumption than competing products of similar capacity, the TMG5800 media gateway supports the drive by service providers to reduce the environmental impact of their network footprint and increase their profitability and green credentials.
“As telecom market rapidly evolves and carriers’ business demands grow, integration of field-proven solutions is the best way to ensure reliability and efficiency of any network’s performance,” comments Konstantin Nikashov, CEO of MERA Systems, “TelcoBridges’ strength in the development of high-density, carrier grade gateways as well as its expertise within the telecom market perfectly compliments MERA Systems business development strategy. We believe the proven interoperability between MERA’s high-performance softswitch and TelcoBridges’ full-featured gateways will strongly benefit both companies and meet the demands of telecom carriers looking to build up highly scalable networks.”
“This year is a turning point in TelcoBridges history, with a new strategy focused on the distribution of our Tmedia gateways through the development of long term relationships with telecom system integrators and resellers, like MERA Systems.” states Daniel Paradis, Director of Global Sales. “Partnerships like this create synergies within the telecom industry, enabling service providers and carriers to take advantage of the most advanced telecom hardware and software paired in one high capacity offering.”
