(NASDAQ: ULCM), a leading provider of signaling software that enables mobility, location, payment, switching, and messaging services, announced that Marconi(London: MONI and NASDAQ: MRCIY) has deployed Ulticom's Signalware® SS7 and Signalware SIGTRAN products in their market-leading SCP and Parlay Gateway products. The Marconi Parlay Gateway, also known as the Applications Mediation Gateway (AMG), enables network operators to rapidly create and deploy new, next-generation revenue producing services. Marconi SCP and AMG products provide call handling, information and database capabilities for both fixed and mobile networks. The solution is currently deployed in Europe, Asia, and Africa.
