Network Transformation, the process of converting a legacy TDM network to SIP, was a hot topic at the 2021 NTCA – The Rural Broadband Association conference in Nashville. In this podcast we speak with Jim Dalton from TransNexus about STIR/SHAKEN and robocall mitigation, Dave George from NetSapiens about transitioning from older platforms to a next generation platform, Camille Issa at Alianza about why it’s important to know your Present Total Cost of Ownership before starting a network transformation and a few words from our own Alan Percy on providing disruption-free connectivity during the transition and consistent integration using SIGTRAN. Listen to the podcast here.
Rural operators are the lifeblood of communications services for communities outside the large metros, serving a diverse subscriber base including farmers, bedroom communities, native American reservations, and more. Recipients of significant investment in recent stimulus bills, the rural operators are seeing new spending for infrastructure and modernization to bring broadband internet and voice services across America.
TelcoBridges will be participating in this year’s NTCA 2021 Fall Conference and Expo, showing a number of new solutions that are well suited for rural operations, including:
- STIR/SHAKEN solutions for both SIP and TDM – helping operators meet FCC mandates for implementation
- TDM to SIP Network Transformation – helping operators move from TDM to SIP-based infrastructure, while maintaining connectivity with interconnect operators and subscribers.
- SS7 to SIGTRAN Migration – eliminating costs by moving SS7 signaling from TDM SS7 to IP-based SIGTRAN
- Robocall Mitigation – protecting subscribers and meeting FCC mandates
If you are planning to attend the event, be sure to stop at the TelcoBridges booth #19 in the Expo, or book an appointment for a meeting.
