One Voice Network Deploys MVTS Session Controller to Provide Voice Services to the Developing Countries

TORONTO - One Voice Network announced that it has deployed MERA Systems, Inc.'s MVTS Session Controller for delivery VoIP wholesale termination as well as prepaid voicemail and value-added services to consumers in the developing world.

One Voice Network (OVN) is a USA-based company providing wholesale VoIP termination services and innovative telephony solutions to low-income consumers in developing countries throughout Asia, Latin America/Caribbean, and Africa. MERA's session controller enables OVN to enable two-way communication for those who cannot afford a fixed-line or cellular phone. OVN's solution provides users with their own unique telephone number and voicemail account allowing them to receive messages 24 hours a day. Subscribers also have the ability to make calls through the same account they use to get their voicemail.  The MVTS allows OVN to deliver wholesale termination services to Tier 1 carriers in the United States, Europe and Asia.

The MVTS Session Controller from MERA is the enabler of the full set of next-generation voice services offered by One Voice Network. MERA's MVTS delivers the following benefits:


  • Direct peering of OVN's VoIP network with partner carriers. MERA's MVTS enables One Voice Network to offer value-added telephony services such as call notifications, call forwarding, one-button call return, prepaid billing and more, delivering IP communications to the underserved users.
  • PSTN-like quality of voice calls. By avoiding the unnecessary conversion of calls into TDM and back to IP, the MVTS session controller allows OVN to offer bandwidth management of the MERA session controller that helps optimize bandwidth use and eliminate deterioration of quality caused by route congestion and delays.
  • Intelligent call routing. MERA's advanced routing tools enable OVN to manage their voice traffic and perform policy-based routing.
  • OVN has deployed MERA's hot-swap redundancy module, which in the event of the system malfunction, the failover server immediately takes over and protects the network against service interruption.
