Leading European Service Provider SMiLOUS, Selects TelcoBridges for Performance, Reliability & Scalability

SMiLOUS Relies on TelcoBridges Carrier Grade Tmedia Solution


(Montreal, Canada) July 1st, 2009:  TelcoBridges™ Inc., the preferred hardware and software supplier for telecom system integrators, solution developers and service providers, today announced that leading European service provider SMiLOUS has selected TelcoBridges’ award winning family of hardware solutions to support its managed switching and global Meet-me-Room solutions.

With more than 10 years of experience, SMiLOUS is an expert in providing professionally managed switching services.  Based in Frankfurt Germany, SMiLOUS provides its customers with global accessibility and local connectivity, through its presence in more than 40 locations worldwide.

SMiLOUS’ Telco Village is a global Meet-me-Room and managed switching solution which enables companies to communicate and collaborate, regardless of distance.  The Telco Village solution is provided on a rented capacity basis.  Unlike many telecom offerings, no capital equipment expenditures are required.   Customers are guaranteed bandwidth, and network capacity is rented on an as-needed basis, without a long-term contract.

The Telco Village solution features three core switching centers in London, Frankfurt and Hong Kong. The network also features 40+ POPs at locations worldwide, and supports all industry standards and protocols.  As a result, customers avoid negotiating contracts with collocation providers, or dealing with a network, and SMiLOUS handles all of the points of presence, network, switching, routing and billing.

SMiLOUS has integrated TelcoBridges’ award-winning Tmedia and Media Gateway Application software, to transport thousands of concurrent calls via high-capacity optical circuits.  The TelcoBridges products are connected via STM-1 interfaces to SMiLOUS’ network and provide fully redundant architecture. TelcoBridges was specifically chosen because it is one of the only media gateway products currently available on the market that supports a carrier-grade solution all the while being completely scalable and field upgradeable to add capacity as needed.

“We’ve chosen TelcoBridges’ hardware because of its high-density, high-availability, and because we believe that TelcoBridges offers the best overall value in the industry,” said Christos Omiridis, Managing Director for SMiLOUS.

“Today, more and more businesses are using  SMiLOUS’s global Meet-me-Room services to boost productivity, reduce travel costs, and leverage the skills of remote workers, and innovations like the Telco Village are solutions launched at the right place, at the right time, to address this market opportunity,” said Danny Paul Blouin, VP of Marketing for TelcoBridges.
