Leading Turkish Voice Provider Swaps out Cisco Legacy Equipment to Energize its IMS and TDM Network

Milpitas, Calif. – September 4, 2013Dialogic Inc. (OTCQB:DLGC), the Network Fuel™ company, today announced that Turkcell Superonline, a leading telecom operator in Turkey, completed the replacement of its softswitch technology with the Dialogic® ControlSwitch™ System to support its IP Multimedia System (IMS) and TDM-based business and residential voice services. Turkcell Superonline selected the ControlSwitch System for its advanced IP-to-IP switching, session management capabilities, seamless interconnection with not only its Ericsson IMS network but also its extensive embedded base of media gateways from Cisco.  Dialogic helped Turkcell Superonline reduce its capital expenditures and transition to a next-generation architecture without service interruption.

Turkcell Superonline provides comprehensive voice and data telecommunications solutions for wholesale, corporate and residential customers in Eastern Europe. When Cisco announced the end-of-life for its PGW 2200 softswitch product, Turkcell Superonline needed to find a long-term replacement for this core part of its infrastructure. Expertise in smooth TDM migrations to all-IP networks combined with Dialogic’s strong interworking offerings and IMS-ready media gateway control function (MGCF) solution made it a clear choice for Turkcell Superonline.

“We required a highly reliable, scalable, plug-and-play solution, which led us to the Dialogic ControlSwitch System for a cost-effective and operationally efficient way to energize our existing network resources,” said Barboros Özdemir, director of corporate business management of Turkcell Superonline. “Dialogic’s experience with successfully transitioning service providers like us from end-of-life legacy switching platforms made us confident our customers would be minimally impacted. Our VoIP business will continue to grow long-term with Dialogic’s solutions and support.”

The Dialogic ControlSwitch System is a carrier class IP switching solution that offers a smooth migration path from existing TDM networks to all-IP infrastructure. Dialogic offers a comprehensive array of integrated solutions for transforming IP services, including session border controllers (SBCs) and media gateways with bandwidth optimization features. Together, these products provide service and session management and end-to-end performance visibility across service providers’ networks. In addition to the ControlSwitch System, Turkcell Superonline deployed Dialogic® I-Gate® 4000 Edge Media Gateways to provide distributed signaling gateway (DSG) functionality to support its SS7 interconnection requirements.  

“Service providers can feel overwhelmed when transitioning from their legacy technology,” said Kevin Gould, senior vice president product development and operations at Dialogic. “Dialogic’s solution energizes existing infrastructure, while our professional services reduce the complexity of their transition and help them conserve CAPEX and OPEX.”
