- Reduced time to market for fixed and mobile networks -

Reading, England - Telcos implementing Intelligent Network (IN) and Voice
Over IP (VOIP) applications based around SS7, and 3G Services based around
ATM and SS7, now have a single source for network foundations. The
capability is the result of a new partnership between Adax and Hughes
Software Systems (HSS), announced today. The combination of higher layer
software from HSS and protocol controller boards and software from Adax
offers users complete solutions for both fixed and mobile applications.

As a result, developers can lower time to market for applications by
sourcing frameworks built around HSS’ 3G, SS7 and VOIP software stacks and
Adax protocol controller boards. The HSS SS7 layer 2 has been ported to
Adax T1/E1 boards and is offered as an on-board component with the Adax
products. The solution conforms to the US, European and Japanese versions
of SS7 layer 2 and provides APIs for the higher layers of SS7 to integrate
the layer 2 functions on the Adax protocol controllers.

The HSS 3G Software frameworks such as Core Network and Radio Network
Controllers drive the Adax ATM hardware. Similarly, HSS’ VOIP Softswitch
products, including its Media Gateway Controller, Gatekeeper and SIP
Servers, utilise the Adax protocol controller boards. This off-the-shelf
solution reduces OEMs time to market and enables the rapid deployment of
new services.

"This partnership provides a rounded 3G and SS7 solution for application
developers, which can crucially lower time to market for
revenue-generating applications," 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 3G, VOIP and IN applications around the

"Hughes Software Systems finds in Adax a complementary partner that
provides the protocol controllers and associated software to enable HSS to
offer complete solutions for the market place. The partnership will
enable new generation equipment vendors to reduce time to market through
the HSS-ADAX combined offerings." said Manoranjan Mohapatra, Executive
Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Hughes Software Systems.
