Oman’s fastest growing and leading mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Renna Mobile have completed the first phase implementation of UK signalling experts Squire Technologies Diameter Interworking Function (IWF) as an instrumental part of their network transformation.
The solution provides a seamless and highly cost effective means for Renna Mobile to bridge the border between legacy SS7 and their Diameter based OCS/billing platform.
While meeting with Renna Mobile’s specific requirements as opposed to providing a costly vanilla solution; the virtualised interworking function’s modular design now allows Renna Mobile to deliver further integration functionality in their network.
Group CTO Milan Jovancic commented “We required a flexible solution in delivering the specific functionality, meeting our needs and technical specifications while being on budget. Squire Technologies SVI-IWF delivered this. We will now use the SVI-IWF to leverage further integration in our network and our hosting operator."
Having experience of Squire Technologies through their voice services and traditional gateway products the team at Renna Mobile approached them looking for a cost efficient end-of-life replacement plan having had vendors push overly complex solutions at prohibitive costs.
