Clarent Distributed VoIP Softswitch Enables Carrier Class and Standards- based Interoperability

3/18/2002 - Clarent Corporation (OTC: CLRN), a global provider of softswitch solutions for next generation networks, today announced the completion of an 18-month effort to transform its VoIP platform components to a distributed softswitch architecture designed to meet carrier class requirements, including UNIX-based operating systems and carrier-grade compliance. The Clarent Softswitch is based on a distributed three-tiered architecture where the intelligent network and call control layers (with both Class 4 and Class 5 functionality) interoperate with the transport layer through media gateways using standard protocols. The distributed architecture of the Clarent Softswitch provides the foundation for fundamental VoIP benefits of scalability, application flexibility and cost effectiveness to meet the needs of service provider toll by-pass deployments, local access for residential service and managed services for the enterprise. These markets are regarded as today's emerging and high-growth markets for VoIP.
