• Sonus and Tekno Telecom joint solution provides carriers with increased network visibility and troubleshooting capabilities.
• Sonus’ signaling portfolio covers the complete carrier journey, from 2G (SS7) through 3G (SIP) to 4G (Diameter) and beyond (NFV).
Sonus Networks, Inc., a global leader in secure and intelligent Cloud communications, and Tekno Telecom (teknotelecom.com), a leader in the Network Monitoring and Reporting arena, today announced the integration of the Sonus DSC 8000 and DSC SWe with Tekno’s NetQuest signaling monitoring solution, to form the Integrated Monitoring Solution. This joint initiative provides carriers with a solution that delivers increased network monitoring, surveillance and maintenance capabilities.
The integration of Sonus’ and Tekno’s signaling products dramatically lowers the cost to monitor SS7 and Diameter, and simplifies the connectivity to the signaling links by removing media tapping hardware. With this partnership, service and revenue assurance, billing, fraud prevention, network surveillance, quality of service and troubleshooting become less expensive, real-time and most importantly, increasingly accurate.
Sonus’ signaling solutions portfolio provides secure communications and seamless interoperability across the complete ecosystem of carrier networks including 2G (SS7), 3G (SIP) and 4G/LTE (Diameter). The Sonus DSC 8000 is a robust, carrier-grade solution that solves the diameter routing dilemma by providing a cost effective solution for the legacy SS7 network and an evolutionary path to the next generation Diameter network. The DSC SWe provides the same advanced feature functionality of the DSC 8000 in a virtual form, delivering carriers with an easy-to-manage, highly scalable solution to the anticipated LTE signaling storm of the future.
“Sonus’ advanced Diameter Signaling Controller and Signaling Transfer Points combined with Tekno’s monitoring capabilities provide carriers with enhanced quality of service, increased revenue opportunities, reduced network inefficiencies and minimized vulnerabilities,” said Bill Welch, Sonus, senior product manager, Signaling. “This partnership benefits customers due to the carrier’s ability to detect and prevent potential issues before they impact the end-user.”
“By utilizing this unique monitoring approach, carriers will be able to cost effectively harvest the rich content of the signaling networks, correlate them into xDRs and effectuate revenue and customer enhancing business intelligence,” stated Sam Galler, Tekno Telecom, vice president, Marketing. “This versatile integrated solution allows multiple departments to inexpensively achieve their network information needs.”
