MERA Introduces New Interworking and Security Features Along with FreeBSD

/>TORONTO - MERA Systems, Inc announced the new 2.1.9 release of its MVTS Session Controller. The new version provides routing and call admission control, and adds FreeBSD to the list of the supported operating systems. The added functionalities enhance the network security, operation, and interworking relations with carrier peers/partners.


Below are a few customer-requested features introduced in MVTS 2.1.9:


  • Enhanced routing to protect against unauthorized use of traffic minutes and optimize interworking with partners: The new MERA Session Controller release allows carriers to define a maximum amount of incoming/outgoing minutes and the expiry date of service for each partner gateway. After the time or traffic limits have been exceeded, the traffic exchange with the gateway is stopped automatically.
  • OS FreeBSD support: Along with the existing OS Linux, MVTS now runs on FreeBSD. This adds to the system flexibility, as many carriers use OS FreeBSD
  • Improved call admission control (CAC) for better network security: Call admission control (CAC) is aimed at managing call admission rates in the network, enabling carriers to maintain QoS levels. CAC is also used to protect networks against security threats such as DoS attacks or unauthorized access.
Altogether, MERA's engineers have implemented about 30 enhancements in the new release of the session controller.
