- High performance, carrier-grade signaling solution for M3UA and SCTP

Reading, England - Adax and Hughes Software Systems (HSS), two of the leading telecoms infrastructure companies, have collaborated to deliver an integrated SIGTRAN solution. This latest joint offering, HSS' latest SIGTRAN M3UA software stack integrated with Adax' SCTP/T signaling protocol, and HDC and ATM protocol controller cards, was demonstrated at the ETSI M3UA interop/ plug tests in Sophie Antipolis, France, 25th February – 1st March 2002.

The companies will offer the integrated solution to manufacturers of signaling gateways, Voice over Packet technology and UMTS network infrastructure. As demonstrated in France, the solution meets and exceeds the functional, performance, carrier-grade and interoperability requirements necessary for next generation networks. The system complies with the latest M3UA version 10 definition, from RFC 2026, supporting socket APIs for rapid deployment of Adax' SCTP/T.

Additional features of the solution include, compliance with the latest MIB draft for easy manageability, support for various network configurations for Signaling Gateway (SG), Application Server Platform (ASP) and IP Security Platform (IPSP) appearances, and implementation of all Redundancy Options defined by the protocol, including SG, ASP Active/Standby, Load Share and Broadcast schemes. Further, the HSS M3UA product provides stack level redundancy in both transparent and stable state update mode, enabling vendors to build Carrier Grade High Availability network solutions.

"Hughes is one of the leading vendors of software for the IETF SIGTRAN stacks," said Robin Kent, Director of European operations at Adax. "Integration with Adax' proven hardware and signaling protocols provides a carrier grade implementation. This is another valuable, high performance building block for vendors looking to develop 3G solutions easily and rapidly."

"In our endeavour to give our customers a quick start on their programs, we are the first to offer an integrated offering along with ADAX," said Manoranjan Mohapatra, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Hughes Software Systems. "Our customers will benefit in terms of saving time and money in developing their products while leveraging the interoperability attained by HSS with other vendors."
