GNP Integrates Sun and NMS Pre-configured CompactPCI Solutions

11/6/2003 - Leading systems and solutions provider GNP is now offering the communications development community pre-configured and custom developed CompactPCI solutions based on hardware from Sun Microsystems (Nasdaq: SUNW) and communications platforms from NMS Communications (Nasdaq: NMSS), trusted supplier of communications products and services.

Through the agreement with NMS, GNP is providing pre-configured, integrated and tested solutions such as signaling and media gateways that use Sun processors with NMS' communications platforms. These solutions help original equipment manufacturers, solution developers, and network equipment providers focus on their unique added value and get to market quickly with new communications products and services.

Recent analyses by IDC and other industry analysts suggest that both carriers and the enterprise are shifting spending programs from traditional to transformational investments. As a result, to convey the value of their offerings, the telecom OEMs and ISVs serving these markets need to move beyond the typical two-party negotiation to embrace a wider range of integration options and supplier choices. Through relationships with companies like GNP, NMS is enabling its customers to have access to both critical technology and a comprehensive set of business, integration and outsourcing services from a single strategic supplier.

"We welcome this expansion of our business relationship with NMS Communications," said Roger Baar, CEO and president at GNP. "We have been working with NMS Communications for some time providing contract design and engineering services. With the extension of our Rapid Product Realization service offerings, including system assembly, integration and test---full NEBS and or agency certification, if required---customers will be able to get NMS-based solutions to their carrier or enterprise markets faster and more cost effectively than ever before."
