Technicolor recently announced that Cirpack has successfully deployed Technicolor's Session Border Controller (SBC) and softswitch to provide SIP interconnection between two network operators in Italy. Cirpack is a provider of local exchange and transit switches for telecom operators all over the world.

Technicolor is a specialist in the media and entertainment sector. In a statement, Juan Lopez, head of Cirpack, said that, "We are delighted to deliver our SIP Interconnection capabilities to the Italian market. This most recent success is the result of close collaboration with our operator customers over several months. We have supported similar efforts throughout Europe, including the French, German, and Italian markets, enabling our customers to offer new and innovative services to their end-users."

Cirpack was able to successfully deploy Technicolor’s SBC and softswitch for a regional operator's network, to enable SIP interconnection with an Italy-based telecommunications provider. With this latest accomplishment, Cirpack has further consolidated its position as the partner of choice for Italian operators that are keen on making use of network resources delivered by the provider in the region.

Cirpack’s interconnection solution has been specifically customized to suit Italian operator standards, which allows it to effectively optimize on the infrastructure without impacting operational costs. To ensure robust security and routing capabilities, the SBC solution was deployed at the edge of the network to serve as an interconnection element for SIP signalling and media.
