BICS Installs TelcoBridges' Tmedia Gateway Solution

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

BICS, a company working toward delivering best-in-class international wholesale solutions to any communication service provider worldwide, has recently installed TelcoBridges’ Tmedia VoIP Gateway Solutions at its international points of presence.

TelcoBridges, in collaboration with VoIP Gateway Partner IT-LOGIQ, has taken this project further in upgrading BICS’s TDM switching platforms to the Tmedia family of VoIP Gateways in different locations.

BICS, a company that offers voice, messaging, roaming, connectivity and mobile financial services to hundreds of communication service providers around the world, has been experiencing highly available ‘five-nines,’ reliable and with full redundancy in its entire network following this upgrade.

BICS’ pan-European network is spread across nine European countries, including the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Luxemburg, the U.K. and Belgium. Its international network spans 160+ countries, through bilateral agreements with more than 300 operators.

“BICS’ endorsement further validates TelcoBridges’ ascension in the VoIP Gateway market,” stated Gaetan Campeau, CEO at TelcoBridges. “As demands on carrier networks continue to expand, our technology and support offerings are rapidly becoming the solution of choice for tier-1 carriers, who demand high performance and low risk. We expect that additional Tier 1 carriers will turn towards TelcoBridges in the year ahead.”

In addition to its VoIP Gateways, TelcoBridges is offering a full 1+1 solution, and 24/7 support as per the 10-year supply agreement with BICS.

 “Our goal has always been to provide mobile & fixed operators, MVNO’s, Service providers and wholesale carriers with the highest quality of service, security and reliability,” said Pierre-André Rulmont, chief technology officer at BICS. “When we recently upgraded our global network, we looked at a number of next-generation media gateway solutions, and we felt that TelcoBridges provided the best combination of performance, reliability and overall value.”

TelcoBridges celebrating its 10-year anniversary offers a variety of brands, including Tmedia (VoIP media gateways), Tdev (development platform) and Tmonitor (real-time network monitoring equipment).
