Ulticom Goes to the Far East with Beijing Futong Computerland

6/3/2003 - Ulticom, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULCM), a leading provider of telecommunications signaling software that enables mobility, location, payment, switching, and messaging services, has signed a distributors agreement with Beijing FuTong Computerland Co., Ltd. This allows Ulticom to market and distribute products and services in both the People's Republic of China and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The addition of Beijing FuTong as a distributor also increases Ulticom’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region and provides the company with an additional sales channel for its Signalware software into Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturers.

Founded in 1987 as an IT venture, Beijing FuTong has grown into the largest distributor and chief agent of IBM China. Accordingly, the company is well positioned to distribute Ulticom’s Signalware product family on IBM’s AIX and Linux platforms. In addition to having an extensive sales network with superior location coverage and a telecom sector focus, Beijing FuTong Computerland Co. provides technology and service support.

Signalware, which has been approved for development and deployment in China by the Chinese Ministry of Information Industry (MII), provides Chinese equipment manufacturers with a carrier-grade signaling solution that runs on open computing platforms, including AIX, Linux, and Solaris. With support for Chinese variants, Signalware’s comprehensive protocol suite has been successfully deployed in a variety of applications in the region, including roaming, pre-paid, and messaging.

"We are delighted with the opportunity to distribute Ulticom’s Signalware product family to China’s leading telecommunications companies," said Chen Jian, General Manager of Beijing FuTong Computerland Co. "The IBM server platform has strong leverage in the Chinese telecommunication market, and our understanding of IBM systems provides Ulticom with a gateway into those companies. Signalware is considered to be the world’s most trusted signaling software, and Chinese developers will be able to accelerate the development of new services to address the growing market in China.”
