Dialogic introduces new signaling products for SS7 over IP networks and AdvancedTCA platforms
CHICAGO and SINGAPORE — June 18, 2007 — Dialogic Corporation (“Dialogic”), a global leader in providing world-class products and technologies for media processing, today announced the worldwide availability of new Dialogic SS7, Dialogic SIGTRAN and Dialogic AdvancedTCA products for the Value Added Services (VAS) market at both NXTcomm, taking place in Chicago and CommunicAsia, taking place in Singapore. These products are designed to increase the market reach for VAS developers with improved protocol interoperability, additional hardware support, and new signaling features.
In the continuing evolution of SS7 networks, VAS developers are constantly challenged to deliver solutions in a variety of network configurations using both traditional and emerging technologies. “Even though an application may not exploit the features of a new SS7 or SIGTRAN protocol or the performance of a new form factor, developers must still be able to interoperate with significant variations in network topology,” commented Jim Machi, Vice President of Marketing for Dialogic. “The focus of the new products and upgrades announced this month is to provide our customers the means to broaden their options for pursuing service provider business with their existing applications.”
Dialogic’s implementation of SIGTRAN M3UA has been enhanced to enable peer-to-peer connectivity as well as gateway operations. Dialogic’s release of BICC support will expand an application’s interoperability with TDM, IP and ATM networks. According to Wind Mobile, the addition of M3UA peer-to-peer capability has already paid significant dividends. “With M3UA peer-to-peer support, we have been able to fully comply with the requirements of two new customers. Today SIGTRAN is a must-have, and peer-to-peer support is very welcome. The cutting edge technology from Dialogic helps us in winning new projects,” said Simon Slupik, Chief Executive Officer of Wind Mobile.
The enhanced protocols are available for use on the application host as well as the Dialogic SS7G21 and Dialogic SS7G22 Signaling Servers. The SS7G22 Signaling Server takes on a new dimension because the enhanced protocols allow its configuration as an IP Signaling Server supporting BICC, M3UA and M2PA. The resulting 2U RMS system provides a shared, high-availability, high-performance connection over IP for multiple applications running on multiple servers. If a deployed solution needs TDM as well as IP, the IP Signaling Server can be expanded with protocol-accelerating SS7 TDM cards removing the need for additional, separate signaling gateways.
VAS developers, who use SS7 call monitoring technology, can activate an application on all-IP networks by using the Dialogic SIGTRAN Monitor, a software-only version of the monitoring features of Dialogic’s SS7 hardware.
Rounding out the market-expanding products announced this month by Dialogic is a new interface card for AdvancedTCA configurations. The Dialogic SS7AM1 mezzanine card extends Dialogic’s signaling solutions to AdvancedTCA blades and chassis in addition to existing low- and high-density PCI, CompactPCI, and RMS systems. The SS7AM1 card supports 124 low-speed or 4 high-speed SS7 links to deliver scalable Value Added Services such as messaging, prepaid calling, roaming, video portal and CRBT. It also runs in high-impedance mode to enable SS7 or HDLC monitoring applications.
Dialogic signaling products use Dialogic’s Signaling Distributed Architecture (SigDiA) to support automatic failover, load sharing and signaling offload. With the new SIGTRAN and AdvancedMC products, SigDiA better positions Dialogic customers to take advantage of today’s ever-changing service provider opportunities.
