Performance Technologies' SIP Signalling Bridge Solves SS7-to-VoIP Feature Disparity

2/17/09 - Performance Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: PTIX) announced the SIP Signalling Bridge, an enhancement of its field-proven SEGway product portfolio. The SIP Signalling Bridge enables wireless, wireline, and VoIP inter-exchange carriers to deliver ubiquitous services to subscribers across disparate network types, while preserving their investments in legacy switches and databases.

As today's networks migrate from traditional circuit-switched to VoIP and SigTran or SIP signalling, an unwieldy hybrid state is formed whereby portions of the network use legacy protocols, while other areas use VoIP signalling methodology. Delivering enhanced services in this environment is an expensive proposition because service delivery platforms, or databases, were developed solely for the legacy model. Until now, operators have adopted costly and cumbersome solutions to furnish equivalent features across evolving networks. The SIP Signalling Bridge offers the most economic and efficient solution for spanning the network gap, allowing seamless delivery of enhanced services.

"At Performance Technologies, we respect the significant investments carriers have made in service delivery platforms for Freephone (UIFN) (8xx), CNAM, IN, HLR, and other applications," said Tom Jenkins, senior product manager at Performance Technologies. "Our SIP Signalling Bridge is a single source solution that enables customers to transparently deliver enhanced services through existing databases, across SIP and SS7 boundaries." This unified service delivery approach results in network hardware cost savings as well as increased revenue generation and profits.

Because the carrier grade SIP Signalling Bridge operates at both the application and call setup layers, it not only enables converged services across the expansive TDM/IP network chasm, it allows service providers to protect their investments in databases, voice mail, and IVR systems. This fully integrated software and hardware solution provides carriers the tools for a cost effective, phased migration to Next Generation networks and services.

The SIP Signalling Bridge operates on any SEGway platform and can be integrated with the Core STP, IP-Edge, and Signalling Gateway applications, providing the most feature rich, lowest cost network solution available today. The carrier grade Linux operating system (NexusWare) and scalable, state of the art hardware, coupled with a programmable SIP-to-any protocol capability, allows service providers maximum feature delivery in today's hybrid networks. This is another example of Performance Technologies' "Simply Smarter Signalling."

Telecommunications system architects and carrier network engineers needing advanced, signalling solutions can meet with Performance Technologies representatives this week to learn more about the company's new SIP Signalling Bridge, SEGway x401 and other signalling products at the 2009 GSM Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain (stand 2.1D22).
