TelcoBridges Tmedia Gateways successfully pass Spirou SS7 interconnection testing conducted by Orange with ease

Tmedia’s Spirou SS7 compliance opens the door for operators seeking to deploy with France’s Tier-1 Carriers such as Orange and SFR

Boucherville, Quebec:  February 18, 2014 – TelcoBridges announces today the results of Orange’s (previously known as France-Telecom) extensive testing of TelcoBridges Tmedia gateway. The goal of the testing was to verify Tmedia’s ability to connect to Orange via Spirou SS7. Orange conducted this testing at the state-of-the-art Euclyde facility. TelcoBridges not only passed all of the tests with ease, but also did so without any appended notes or constraints, resulting in the highest level of compliance. This means that we can drop TelcoBridges Tmedia gateways into any network connected to or needing to connect to Orange.

The Spirou SS7 testing process began when TelcoBridges reseller IT-Logiq sold Tmedia gateways to solutions provider Ainsi Soit TEL, who sought to connect their IP-based telecom services to Orange’s TDM network.  Orange requires anyone connecting to its network to undergo extensive Spirou SS7 testing.

“The Orange’s engineers rigorously evaluated our gateways, and we’re pleased to report that we passed all of their tests without caveats, constraints, or notes of any kind – and from what we understand, this has not been the case with competing gateways that have undergone similar testing,” said Luc Morissette, Director of Technical Support for TelcoBridges.  opens the door for TelcoBridges to work with other solutions providers in France that require Spirou connections to reach Tier-1 carrier networks like Orange, and SFR.”

“We are very pleased with TelcoBridges; their staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and their gateways are reliable and easy to work with,” said Gilles Sauvaire, CEO of Ainsi soi TEL.

In addition to working with Ainsi Soit TEL and Orange, TelcoBridges has also completed Spirou SS7 compliancy testing with solutions provider Adenis Telecom, who required the same Spirou SS7 compliancy testing to connect to France’s second Tier-1 carrier SFR’s TDM network.

TelcoBridges will present Tmedia’s capabilities (including ISUP Spirou SS7) at the TB Academy training session taking place just prior to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, on February 24th.  For information on attending this session, visit the events section of
