Cantata Technology's Excel MSP 1010 Enhanced to Offer Advanced Signaling for Next Generation Networks.

Enables Rapid and Cost-Effective Introduction of Innovative, Revenue-Generating Applications

NEEDHAM, Mass. -- Cantata Technology[TM], one of the world's leading independent providers of enabling communications technology, today introduced an enhanced version of its Excel Multi-Services Platform (MSP) 1010[TM], establishing a new industry standard for global service providers to rapidly and cost-effectively deploy innovative, revenue-generating applications as they transition to next generation networks.

Key features and functionality incorporated into the new enhanced version of the MSP 1010 include:

* Enhanced Sigtran and SIP Signaling Support: Inclusion of the Sigtran M3UA protocol in the MSP 1010 enables carriers to seamlessly deploy services and solutions in converged networks, where the connectivity is IP, yet internetworking is established through legacy SS7 protocols. In addition, M3UA provides for increased bandwidth and reduced cost. The enhanced MSP 1010 also incorporates extensive SIP capabilities which support the industry movement toward SIP as a standard, enabling the development of SIP-based applications that allow operator deployment of new, revenue-generating IP and IMS services. With integrated support for call control protocols (ISUP, ISDN, IN), mobile protocols, robust media processing, and SIP capabilities, the MSP 1010 supports a wide range of applications deployable in any generation network.

* Network Monitoring and Recording for Lawful Intercept: The MSP 1010's new passive recording functionality, combined with the ability to monitor SS7 signaling, allows for the development of lawful intercept solutions, whereby law enforcement authorities can non-intrusively record phone conversations. This functionality enables carriers to comply with the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA).

* Bearer Independent ISUP: Enables the development of infrastructure elements and nodes in the next-generation architecture (NGN), and the conversion of ISUP signaling to SIP signaling in the transition to NGN networks, regardless of the bearer traffic route.

An extension of Cantata's popular, award-winning Excel CSP[TM] family of products, the MSP 1010 is a highly flexible media resource platform, supporting TDM and IP interfaces as well as fixed and mobile, signaling and bearer traffic. A high-density solution with an unmatched price-performance ratio, the MSP 1010 has a single-shelf (1u) form factor and comprehensive GUI for easy installation and maintenance. The MSP 1010 serves as a single development environment for media processing and signaling traffic. This versatility enables users to quickly and cost-effectively develop revenue-generating services for both legacy and next-generation networks. Users can develop many types of applications including prepaid voice and data services; voice applications such as IVR, voicemail, conferencing; PBX; a wide range of services based on SS7 monitoring, including welcome roamer and missed call alert; as well as signaling services such as SMS-C, SMS Router, IN applications and signaling converters.

"The MSP 1010 is reflective of Cantata's corporate philosophy of developing technology that enables the creation of next generation services from now generation networks," said Marc Zionts, chief executive officer, Cantata Technology. "The MSP 1010, like other Cantata products, enables service providers to rapidly bring new revenue-generating VoIP applications to market, while eliminating the need to invest in multiple layers of complicated, costly infrastructure. The highly scalable design of the MSP 1010 also enables service providers to easily increase capacity."

"Volt Delta has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Cantata, maximizing the full power and potential of its Excel CSP 2090 to rapidly introduce new services to its customers," said Rich Oldach, executive vice president, strategic marketing at Volt Delta, a leading provider of platform and database services to the worldwide telecommunications market. "Given Cantata's impressive track record of developing superior products supplemented with world-class service and support, Volt Delta enthusiastically embraces this new release of the Excel MSP 1010 for deployment in its global network. The MSP 1010's advanced signaling features will provide Volt Delta with a significant competitive advantage as it develops and deploys new revenue-generating VoIP applications and services."

"Palm Associates selected the MSP 1010 due to its advanced signaling and SIP functionality, all incorporated within one programmable and scalable platform," said Paul Petronelli, chief executive officer, Palm Associates, a valued Cantata partner. "We are particularly impressed with the Sigtran M3UA and signaling conversion functionality. These features enable Palm Associates to provide significant productivity and financial benefits to customers as we provide next generation services through seamless internetworking with existing and evolving network infrastructures."
