SOLACE LAUNCHES SOLOS 2.1 FOR LARGE-SCALE MESSAGE ROUTING.

Solace Systems, Ottawa, a leader in carrier-scale message routing, has launched SolOS 2.1, the latest release of its platform for large-scale message routing. With the following key enhancements, SolOS 2.1 aims to accelerate the rollout of application-oriented network services, to streamline operations and management functions, and to extend best-in- class XML message support to legacy formats.

- Full active-active failover support to satisfy the availability requirements of mission-critical applications.

- Enhanced accounting of messages and network usage to simplify operations and provide flexibility for service billing.

- Advanced planning and diagnostics facility to assist in capacity planning and accelerate service deployment.

- Expanded capacity for simultaneous, virtual networks to improve infrastructure ROI in shared network deployments.

- Enhanced programmatic interface and SDK to accommodate non-XML message formats and simplify integration of legacy applications.

"As the market for message routers moves to the next phase of adoption, carrier customers are asking for a versatile application services platform that is scalable, robust, and manageable," said Peter Ashton, VP Marketing and Product Management, Solace Systems. "SolOS 2.1 addresses these requirements directly and furthers the leadership position of the 3200 Series Multiservice Message Router in the marketplace."

Deployed within the existing IP network, Solace Systems message routers provide the foundation for carriers to offer utility-based, application- oriented network services. "The cost and complexity of many inter-enterprise applications and the growing interest in new network applications such as RFID and Web services, is causing many CIOs to consider managed services instead of traditional infrastructure buildouts," continued Ashton. "By exploiting the application intelligence resident in the carrier's network, enterprises can connect with their trading partners seamlessly across the WAN, pay-as-they- grow, and avoid complex integration initiatives."

About Message Routing

Message routers are network-centric solutions to the problem of efficient, real-time information sharing between applications across the WAN. With hardware support for processing message content and advanced protocols for network-wide sharing of application knowledge, message routers are rapidly emerging as an alternative to traditional server-centric approaches that suffer from scale or performance limitations, require complex integration, and are prone to outages.

Message routers look deep into the messages that are communicated between applications and make use of the derived knowledge to add value to the exchange. By interpreting and recognizing tags and keywords within the structured messages, intelligent decisions can be made dynamically during the message forwarding process.

With service providers and enterprises recognizing the benefits of greater application intelligence in the network, vendors such as Solace Systems and Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) are responding with targeted message routing solutions that lower the integration burden, streamline the infrastructure, and reduce the overall cost of initiatives such as market data distribution, RFID data dissemination, and web services deployment.

About Solace Systems

Solace Systems enables service providers to gain competitive advantage through next-generation IP network services. Solace Systems message routing solutions embed application intelligence directly into the carrier's core network and provide intelligent handling of high-value traffic for enterprises and consumers.
