Huawei today announced that it has been selected by Comfone to replace Comfone's existing Signalling Transfer Point (STP) with Huawei's 'enhanced' solution. The STP solution will provide the Swiss roaming service provider with signalling, transmitting and charging services within its signalling network.
Comfone, provider of roaming services to over 300 mobile operators in over 130 countries worldwide, is an international mobile roaming specialist. Having provided its customers with reliable and quality signalling services for years, Comfone requires a high-capacity and high-performance STP solution to maintain its high level of service provision and to optimise service quality for its customers. Huawei's technical solution excels in signaling processing ability and guarantees safety and stability for Comfone's SS7 network.
Matthias Rüfenacht, Chief Operating Officer of Comfone, said: "We are convinced that we have chosen the right partner with Huawei. Their expertise and innovative technology solutions fulfill our requirements regarding signaling and accounting functionalities extremely well. With more switching and signaling capabilities, the Huawei solution will enable us to offer our customers enhanced signaling services and solutions, while continuing to guarantee our high standards of quality."
Huawei's SG7000 equipment is based on an OSTA platform and provides high-capacity SS7 & Sigtran protocol processing ability with 'large capacity interfaces and high performance'. It can support IP/TDM bearer as well as STP, SG, IP-STP applications in mobile networks. These features enable operators to simplify their signaling network which allows them to significantly reduce the total cost of network ownership and, at the same time, increase profitability, says Huawei.
"We are excited about supporting Comfone in providing their customers with high-quality, reliable signaling services. Mobile operators rely on Comfone's network and we are very pleased that Comfone is relying on us and our STP solution to support their fast-paced development," stated Tony Cheng, Deputy Managing Director of Huawei Switzerland.
