The continuing rise of VoIP and the shift towards cloud-based technologies has been well documented over recent months, but companies also appear to be continuing to evolve their TDM based infrastructure, particularly in the African and Middle-Eastern markets. Squire Technologies, the global signalling specialists to the telecoms industry, are reporting increased sales for their TDM based products such as the SS7 STP and those offering interconnection with NGN VoIP such as their TDM to SIGTRAN Signalling Gateway for IP backhaul and SS7 to VoIP Media Gateways.
Asked to comment upon the continued demand in the TDM arena, Squire Technologies Sales Director Sanjeev Verma noted the ongoing trend of telecom operators maximising their existing CAPEX. He explains, Weve seen companies such as Vodafone and Orange in developed markets like the UK agree to share their networks; and one of the prime motives must be to get as much value as possible out of their existing CAPEX. TDM still has a major role to play in developed markets as were seeing companies across the board moving slowly to VoIP whilst continuing to enhance their TDM infrastructure as their networks needs dictate.
Sanjeev continues, It is true that people are migrating towards VoIP-based networks, but the speed of this migration has been somewhat over-exaggerated, particularly in markets such as Africa. Weve experienced a particular increase in demand from Ghana as a result of the Ghanaian Governments decentralisation of the Telecoms market, whilst demand in countries such Nigeria and South Africa has remained strong for both TDM and convergent infrastructure. With companies such as Cisco withdrawing from the TDM space, weve seen many companies who arent yet prepared to move to Cloud and VoIP technologies talk to us about how they can continue to use their existing infrastructure. Products like our Media Gateway Controller and Signalling Gateway which enable operators to use their existing TDM infrastructure have seen success as a direct result.
Business Development Director Simon Dinnage agreed that economic factors undoubtedly play a role. Our clients are looking to squeeze as much out of their incumbent TDM networks as possible whilst slowly transitioning to all-IP networks. TDM networks offer 99.999 percent reliability and turn significant revenue; in the race to all-IP networks, only the largest of operators can afford to replace them wholesale and even they need to ensure that their major revenue generating TDM services are still supported in the interim. In the majority of cases its a question of running a blend of both TDM and NGN networks to exact the greatest return.
