Ulticom Targets IP Signaling Networks with Signalware Enhancements

6/3/2003 - Ulticom, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULCM), a leading provider of telecommunications signaling software that enables mobility, location, payment, switching, and messaging services, announced delivery of new features for its Signalware software. Enhancements to SIGTRAN protocols, Gateway functionality, and SS7 simplify the development of value-added voice and data services across converged, wireless, and wireline networks.

The new release of Signalware includes the following updates that advance Signalware's reputation as the leading software for carrier-grade, fault-resilient signaling:

Signalware SIGTRAN
M3UA and SCTP RFC Compliance – Signalware’s implementation of SCTP and M3UA conform to the latest RFC requirements as designated by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). This implementation offers improved interoperability, and stability.

SIGTRAN M3UA Global Interoperability – The latest versions of Signalware SIGTRAN M3UA protocol and Signalware Gateway comply with North American, European, Japanese, and Chinese signaling standards. By allowing seamless access to these world standards, Signalware lowers Network Equipment Provider’s (NEP) barriers to entry into new markets. Standards-Based Management – Signalware’s current SIGTRAN M2PA, M3UA, and SCTP protocols can now be centrally managed through Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Standardized management makes SIGTRAN more cost effective for service providers to deploy and maintain.

Signalware Gateway
Local Application Hosting – Signaling gateway is a critical component of circuit and packet network convergence. The ability to collocate applications at this demarcation point will enhance overall service delivery, improve responsiveness, and relieve the burden of replicating applications in the IP network.

Signalware SS7
TCAP Global Interoperability – Globalization of CDMA and GSM has increased the importance of applications to be easily adapted to run on both ANSI and ITU-based networks worldwide. Signalware TCAP protocol has been updated to ANSI 2000, which will minimize the development effort needed for global deployment of applications.

"Ulticom is known throughout the industry as a premier provider of signaling software," said Osman Duman, Vice President of Marketing for Ulticom. "That reputation is based on Ulticom’s continued superior development efforts that make Signalware fault resilient and scalable for seamless global deployment. The new release of Signalware further enhances these traits with significant updates to SIGTRAN protocols, Gateway functionality, and SS7, providing NEPs with the means to gracefully migrate from their traditional networks to IP networks without sacrificing the fault resilience and quality of service."

"Our recent research with service providers worldwide indicates a growing interest by both wireline and wireless providers in implementing SIGTRAN in the next 12 to 24 months," said Christin Flynn, Director of Communication Network Infrastructure at the Yankee group. "Ulticom's partnerships with packet voice vendors in every region puts them in a unique position to be the trusted provider to migrate their products to packet-based signaling."

Ulticom will be showcasing Signalware at Supercomm 2003 in Atlanta, GA from June 3rd to June 5th. Interested individuals can visit Ulticom at booth number 23255 in Hall B for full presentations on Signalware products. For more information, visit http://www.ulticom.com.
