Ulticom Enables Seamless Migration to IP Networks with Signalware

1/15/2004 - Ulticom, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULCM), a leading provider of signaling software enabling mobility, location, payment, switching, and messaging services, announced the delivery of new features for its market-leading Signalware software. These features include Signalware SIP enhancements, SCCP User Adaptation (SUA) availability for Signalware SIGTRAN, and numerous additional features that further solidify Ulticom's premier position in signaling. The new release is available on the Sun Solaris 9TM Operating System and Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3.

These new Signalware features provide network equipment providers (NEPs) with an integrated carrier-grade signaling solution to develop converged network applications demanded by service providers migrating to IP networks.

Key service and application benefits from enhancements to Signalware are:

The new version of Signalware SIP is integrated with Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP), providing applications with improved reliability over IP-based networks. This solution also features Virtual IP support, reducing deployment costs by eliminating the need for third-party clustering software.

SUA, a vital component in gateways and in transaction-based signaling applications, is now generally available as part of the comprehensive Signalware SIGTRAN product. Ulticom's SUA offering is tightly integrated with SS7, M2PA, and M3UA. The SUA implementation is compliant with the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) SUA Draft 15. This release also updates compliance of M2PA in Signalware SIGTRAN to IETF Draft 9.

"With Ulticom's unique focus and expertise in signaling, we are able to provide an integrated multi-protocol signaling solution to meet our customers' comprehensive signaling needs. This latest round of enhancements to Signalware demonstrate Ulticom's commitment to lead the signaling market," said Osman Duman, Vice President of Marketing for Ulticom. "As service providers evolve their signaling network architecture to IP, we believe the adoption of protocols such as SIGTRAN and SIP, as well as gateways for seamless protocol interworking will become increasingly important."

"Wireless operators are aggressively planning to roll out SIP-based, next-generation Push To Connect (P2C) services and applications that take advantage of a subscriber's presence and location utilizing SIP," said XJ Wang, Senior Analyst, Wireless/Mobile Technologies at the Yankee Group. "A carrier-grade platform is essential to meet future growth. As a major carrier-grade SS7 software provider, Ulticom has reached another milestone by providing the industry with a carrier-grade SIP platform."

"The new release of Signalware on the Solaris 9 OS has reinforced the joint commitment from Ulticom and Sun to provide network equipment and service providers with a valuable platform that drives new service revenue in wireless and VoIP networks," said Arlen Vanderwel, Vice President, Netra Systems, Sun Microsystems. "Sun and Ulticom continue to work together to ensure we meet our customers' evolving needs for next generation service infrastructure."

"Signaling is an essential component of most telecom network equipment. We welcome Ulticom's vision to offer their market leading carrier-grade signaling solution, Signalware, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux," said Michael Tiemann, CTO of Red Hat. "This will pave the way for Linux to be a viable platform for mission critical telecom applications."
