Global Voice Telecom deploys Cataleya’s Orchid One networking solution in Bangladesh

06 September 2016 |


Cataleya’s session border controller, Orchid One, has been installed and used on voice calls in Bangladesh.

Cataleya, a subsidiary of the Epsilon Global Communications group, has been selected by Global Voice Telecom (gvtele) to deploy its next-generation session border controller (SBC), Orchid One, to deliver high-performance intelligent networking.

Ggvtele will use Orchid One’s guaranteed quality of service (QoS) and experience (QoE) to differentiate its offering in Bangladesh and prove its performance levels. Orchid One’s capacity of up to 100,000 sessions per 2 rack units allows gvtele to reduce its equipment footprint considerably and benefit from significant power savings.

“Bangladesh has one of the largest diaspora populations of any country in the world. This makes for a vibrant and growing international voice market. Our next-gen SBC will support the growth of gvtele and enable it to serve growing demand, and provide high performance and intelligent networking,” said Jay Jayasimha, CEO at Cataleya. “Quality at scale is critical in the voice market and gvtele is benefiting from true end-to-end QoS and QoE that is ready to grow with its business.”

Gvtele is one of the few International Gateway Connectivity (IGW) licensees allowed to route incoming and outgoing calls to and from Bangladesh.

“Orchid One enables us to scale up our business while delivering even greater performance. It drives efficiency and will support our growth in the long-term,” said Samiul Huq, CTO at gvtele: “Throughout the deployment, the team at Cataleya has delivered excellent support and demonstrated that they are a team of experts that we can rely on. We not only believe in Cataleya’s technology we trust them to deliver.”

The march of virtualisation

Virtualization is still breaking down the old ways of deploying intelligent networks. Cataleya has already deployed its Orchid One SBC in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas but it is still finding new ways to support service providers as they adopt IP.

Over the last 12 months, Cataleya has been grappling with how to bring flexibility and elastic scalability of its intelligent networking ‘solutions’ in the cloud environment. This led to the development of its vOrchid One, a virtualized version of their Orchid One next-generation session border controller.

Cataleya  claims service providers that deploy vOrchid One benefit from: a reduced total cost of ownership, rapid deployment and the ability to deliver a higher quality of service and experience for clients.
