The burgeoning African SMS market is a hotbed of innovation, engineering ever more text messaging applications and services for end-users, and iBurst having already deployed Squire Technologies’ SVI-MG Media Gateway for wholesale voice were able to easily implement the SMSG Gateway software upgrade, adding competitive wholesale SMS services to their portfolio.


Utilising the existing platform, it allows iBurst to send and receive SMSs via SS7 while supporting SS7 interconnect over traditional TDM networks and Next Generation IP networks via SIGTRAN.

“Finding a long-term strategic solution with Squire Technologies has been very advantageous. Our initial investment of the Media Gateway (SVI-MG) deployment was scalable enough to upgrade and utilise the SS7 links to terminate SMS.

Integrating the SMS Gateway to our existing platform enables further revenue generation and is crucial to our plan to deliver products with the highest levels of customer service, whilst building stakeholder value,” said Nazeer Adam, Project Manager at iBurst.
