- Adax previews convergence technology for telco backbones at 3GSM World Congress, Cannes, 20-23 Feb 2001

Cannes, France - 20th February 2001 - The fundamental incompatibility of IP and existing fixed and mobile telco networks was swept away today with the launch of new convergence technology from industry innovator, Adax. Introduction of the technology will allow telcos to provide high performance gateways to telephony services at the backbone level, accelerating adoption of Voice over IP (VoIP) and other applications that demand high quality and reliable IP service. The announcement was made by the company at the 3GSM World Congress, opened today in Cannes, France.

Adax, the world's leading supplier of signalling controllers and software that provide the foundation for telecoms networks, has developed the technology to provide high performance gateways between voice and data traffic, within telcos' backbones. The combination of the Adax HDC and ATM cards, with Adax protocol software including SCTP, SS7 and SSCOP, provides a powerful and flexible foundation for network convergence. The new technology will be available for narrowband and broadband, wireline and wireless networks alike. The Adax technology is compatible with existing infrastructures, shortening the adoption timeframes and costs.

"We are very excited about this new technology," said Robin Kent, Director, European Operations, Adax. "For the first time, telcos will be able to deliver the quality and reliability of IP services via the PSTN. Voice and data will be able to travel alongside each other right through the networks - from point to point without bottlenecks."

Based on open systems standards, modular design and a common API, the combination of Adax products and the resulting solutions are ideal for today’s convergence gateways and telephony infrastructure.

"We have used the ADAX signaling boards for our IN solutions, Media Gateway Controllers and GPRS/UMTS software solutions" said Manoranjan Mohapatra, Chief Operating Officer, Hughes Software Systems (HSS). " The HSS ADAX integrated solutions bring time to profit advantages to our customers."
