Performance Technologies Introduces SEGway 4300 Signaling Gateway

6/1/2005 - Performance Technologies (Nasdaq NM: PTIX), a leading developer of integrated systems, platforms, components and software, introduced the SEGwayTM 4300 Signaling Gateway, the company’s most robust and highest capacity signaling gateway solution.

As global SS7 traffic continues to increase, carriers are seeking ways to increase network capacities. In order to facilitate a gradual migration from legacy SS7 circuits to next-generation VoIP, carriers require devices capable of supporting both traditional SS7 protocols and IP protocols. Gateway products such as the SEGway 4300 provide the signaling bridge to allow traditional TDM and next-generation, IP-based SS7 networks to work together seamlessly.

Performance Technologies’ signaling gateways use the latest Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) SIGTRAN standards to ensure reliability for these demanding VoIP applications. Scalable to 96 signaling links, the SEGway 4300 ensures OEMs and carriers a solution that can expand to meet the demands of high-growth, SS7 circuit-based or IP networks.

“The SEGway 4300 is our highest capacity signaling gateway offering to date. Our field-hardened signaling software combined with our robust hardware platform offers the flourishing VoIP market a flexible, cost-competitive solution for next-generation networks,” said Deb Brunner-Walker, signaling product manager for Performance Technologies. “As global IP convergence moves closer to the mainstream, our gateways are being deployed around the globe. This latest offering was created to meet the burgeoning demands of ever-growing IP networks and new application providers.”

Engineered for NEBS reliability, the Performance Technologies family of standalone and embedded signaling gateways offers the unparalleled performance and capabilities demanded by the VoIP networks of today and tomorrow. The SEGway 4300 is offered in a 7U CompactPCI® form factor. It offers 1024 virtual point codes and supports both circuit-switched and IP-based SS7 protocols.

Beta trials for the SEGway 4300 are scheduled for July with general availability scheduled for September 2005.
