- Off-the-shelf network infrastructure speeds network delivery

Reading, England – June 12th 2001 – OEMs implementing 3G and Voice over Packet (VoP) networks will be able to cut their time to market, following the launch of an integrated solution today by two of the leading players in the infrastructure market. Hughes Software Systems (HSS), specialists in convergent network software, and Adax Limited, designer of infrastructure hardware and software, have collaborated to develop a single product source for 3G and VoP infrastructure.

The companies are demonstrating pre-integrated IP and ATM solutions at VON Europe 2001, with HSS Signalling Stacks (M3UA and MTP3B) integrated with Adax protocol controller boards for Voice over Packet and UMTS networks.

This combination of higher layer protocol stacks and solutions from HSS, and signalling boards and software from Adax provides OEMs the first complete solution for rapid deployment of VoP and mobile data applications on traditional and new networks.

HSS’ M3UA stack has been integrated with the HDC board from Adax, to offer an important building block for VoP Signaling solutions. HSS’ MTP 3B stack is also now available for Adax’ ATM boards - a critical component of UMTS.

“This partnership provides a rounded Next Generation Network infrastructure solution for developers, which can crucially lower time to market for revenue-generating products,” explained Robin Kent, Director of European operations at Adax . “It has come about as a result of an established business and technology relationship which is already providing a solid foundation for VoP and GPRS applications around the world.”

“In partnership with Adax, our continuous emphasis has been to bring pre-integrated solutions to our joint customers and to reduce their time to development and ensure interoperability,” said Manoranjan Mohapatra, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Hughes Software Systems.


For nearly 20 years Adax has been laying the foundations for wide area communications applications and services. The company provides signaling solutions for the world's leading companies, including Lucent, Nortel, Ericsson, Alcatel, Hughes and Siemens.

Adax has built a product set based on open systems standards, modular design and a common API. This combination has made Adax the industry leader in high performance wide area communications and signaling infrastructure to premier datacom and telecom companies.

The Adax range of hardware and software tools for convergence in signaling networks enable OEMs and Integrators to quickly and efficiently build communications solutions for the Wide Area. Typical application areas for Adax products include Signaling, VoIP, WAP and Media Gateways; GGSN and SGSN nodes for GPRS and 3G; Intelligent Networks; Base Station Control; Billing Mediation.
