An in-network, end-to-end solution, MyCaller delivers world-class content, provides reliable management and is built on state-of-the-art technology.

"In order to offer our customers best-in-class solutions, we partner with the industry's top application and technology providers," said Brian Demers, vice president, Mobile Products Strategy at NMS Communications. "Performance Technologies is a true industry innovator, and the company's packet-based IPnexus products provide us with the scalability and flexibility we need to future-proof our solutions and get them to market in record time."

Performance Technologies' IPnexus embedded Ethernet switches offer a powerful switching solution for high availability, carrier-grade IP telephony products. When used in platforms such as MyCaller, they offer increased reliability and performance gains of up to 40 times that of conventional open-systems architectures.

"The ability to offer enhanced, revenue-generating mobile communications services is increasingly driving demand for solutions like MyCaller," said Jean Pierre Filion, vice president of worldwide sales for Performance Technologies.
