Syniverse Technologies (Booth 1100), a leading provider of mission-critical technology services to wireless telecommunications companies worldwide, has launched Operator ENUM Database Service to route voice and data services efficiently over an IP network.
Syniverses Operator ENUM Database Service provides the network intelligence required to determine, in real time, the owner of a given phone number, the advanced services associated with that number, and the most efficient route to reach that number. Additionally, the service validates interconnect agreements that operators utilize to establish interworking for services such as VoIP and multimedia messaging (MMS).
Leveraging Syniverses experience with network database services, number portability solutions and operator interconnectivity, Operator ENUM Service enables a straightforward migration path to next-generation IP services while enabling operators and carriers to reduce operational costs and improve interoperator network efficiency. Syniverses service reduces operators capital investment by enabling the operator to utilize a high-performance ENUM query engine without the expense of buying and operating private ENUM servers.
Syniverses Operator ENUM Database Service works by enabling carriers switches to query the most recent routing information for a given subscribers telephone number, including ported number information, to complete a call or message to that subscriber. Operators using IP-based services such as MMS interworking can submit routing queries in-band over the IP network, versus utilizing external SS7 transport networks, reducing costs and gaining efficiencies. As operators and carriers migrate to VoIP and other IMS-based services, they can utilize the same ENUM database to provide routing resolution for those services.
As the telecommunications industry migrates to IP-based services, operators can look to Syniverse to reduce the complexities by leveraging our SS7 transport, database queries and number portability capabilities, said Linda Hermansen, vice president of business development for Syniverse.
This service adds another component to the Syniverse portfolio of services that enable an efficient migration from the circuit switch to next-generation packet-switched networks. It enables wireless, wireline, cable and VoIP service providers to fully leverage their infrastructure investments and interconnect agreements for todays services and provides an economical path to advanced services.
