Alliance Digital Takes NexTone Real-Time Session Management to China

10/27/2005 - Alliance Digital, Inc., a leading China business development, sales, and support services firm, announced the signing of a representation agreement to expand NexTone's position in the rapidly developing China market. NexTone Communications(R) is the leader in scalable session management of real-time IP services such as voice over IP (VoIP). Under the terms of the agreement, Alliance Digital, will provide business development, sales, technical support, and representation services for NexTone's industry leading VoIP session management solutions to China service providers, network equipment vendors, and enterprises.

"Alliance Digital's end-to-end China market development and technical support services allow NexTone to rapidly and effectively address the growing China market. Alliance Digital has significant experience and demonstrable success in assisting emerging communications technology vendors enter the China market and partner with leading service providers, OEMs, and resellers. With the major deployments of VoIP, the issuing of 3G licenses, and the likely reorganization of operators in China, we foresee significant opportunities and growth in the China market" said Diarmid Massey, Asia Pacific Managing Director of NexTone.

"We are excited to represent NexTone, the leader in session management solutions, in the China market. NexTone's products provide a broad range of solutions leveraging momentum in IMS and ATCA and we are seeing significant demand for NexTone's solutions from the major China service providers and resellers" said David Sullivan, Managing Director of Alliance Digital.

NexTone's real time session management products, the platform used to build award-winning networks, is an enabling technology that makes the broad implementation of IP networks and specifically the usage of SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) for the provision of new services like VoIP available today.

The NexTone Multiprotocol Session Controller (MSC) enables VoIP carriers to use IP to interconnect with one another directly and rapidly instead of implementing a multitude of interfaces provided by back-to-back media gateways. The simplified approach offered by NexTone reduces turn-up time and costs.

The NexTone Multiprotocol Signaling Switch (MSW) is the centralized control of all routing in the VoIP network including aggregation of charging information from all parts of the network. The NexTone iView Management System (iVMS) offers carriers a powerful view of the network for the deployment and reporting of real-time results of the quality and costs associated with the VoIP services provided.

NexTone leads the market in providing innovative solutions for network security, signaling interworking and multivendor interoperability, and enables carriers and other service providers to directly interconnect their networks with other SIP and H.323 based networks via IP.
