SBE and NComm Showcase Integrated Linux WAN Solutions at SUPERCOMM

6/23/2004 - NComm, Inc., a technology leader in turnkey WAN software and source code, and SBE, Inc. (NASDAQ: SBEI), a leading supplier of high performance OEM communications solutions, will demonstrate their integrated hardware and software WAN interface solution at SBE’s SUPERCOMM booth (#28012) in Chicago this week from June 22-24.

The demonstration will highlight the joint solution created by combining NComm’s sophisticated Trunk Management Software (TMS) with SBE’s rich mix of T1/E1 and T3/E3 WAN adapters. Designed to operate in Real Time Operating System (RTOS) environments, including Linux, this powerful combination of products enables one of the industry’s most complete board-level WAN interface solutions for network equipment providers. It presents a substantial ROI advantage to OEM customers by accelerating time to market by up to a year.

Typically, WAN interface cards are packaged with basic drivers, leaving the complex and time-consuming tasks of completing a standard compliant interface, i.e. driver modifications and additional software development, to the customer. This common development exercise is risk-prone and can be eliminated with the application-ready SBE/NComm solution. The joint solution incorporates pre-tested alarming, signaling and monitoring capabilities into the SBE offering.

"When OEMs are freed from the additional development and testing cycle, they can focus on their core products and deliver reliable, fully functional product to market more rapidly and cost-effectively,” remarked Dan Grey, senior vice president of sales and marketing of SBE. “The customer inquiries and design win activity for the SBE/NComm solution that we have experienced since its introduction just a few short months ago is a testament to the viability and need for such a product in the networking community. We’re pleased to report that the bundled SBE and NComm solution is currently integrated in a voice conferencing system designed for worldwide deployment. We expect more OEM success stories to follow, especially now that a ‘pre-ported’ Linux version is available to further boost time savings to our many Linux customers," concluded Grey.

"Today’s competitive market demands that vendors provide their OEM customers with complete, ready-for-primetime WAN solutions that run out-of-the-box,” noted Bill Matern, founder and CEO of NComm. “The SBE/NComm offering is the only one in the market that truly delivers the complete solution. It is the combining of two best-in-class products that delivers a robust, Linux communication platform aimed at meeting these market demands."
