Combination provides ultra-reliable interoperability between legacy telecom networks and next-generation VoIP/IMS services; modular, open architecture provides flexibility

MAYNARD, Mass., July 10 - Stratus Technologies, Inc. announced today the general availability of Version 2.5 of the ENTICE (Emerging Network Telecommunication Infrastructure Environment) product family on a full range of Stratus fault-tolerant ftServer® systems. Together, this fully integrated solution gives telecom carriers and service providers the most reliable, flexible, and complete infrastructure yet for linking traditional wireline, mobile and cellular networks to evolving VoIP (Voice over IP) and IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) services.

99.999% Uptime
Stratus' ftServer line is considered among the most reliable Xeon processor-based servers available today. Ideal for telecom use, ftServer systems combine Red Hat Linux computing with Stratus' exclusive Continuous Processing® technology. Their unique, hardened design delivers field-proven 99.999 percent uptime reliability without the complexity and high cost of server cluster configurations.

"Our VoIP solution from Stratus provided essentially everything we needed from a single source," said Don Nguyen, IT Manager for Yootel, a Toronto-based provider of advanced voice, IPTV and Internet services for residential and business customers. "ENTICE is a very comprehensive product suite, much more so than competitive offerings. Having the ftServer fault-tolerant platform to run it on, knowing that it is based on the same server technology used by many of the largest carriers in the world, translates into real service benefits for our customers."

Stratus ftServer systems available for ENTICE 2.5 products range from decentralized, mission-critical applications typical among Tier 2 or 3 providers where price is a consideration, to models suited for Central Office deployments requiring support for high call volume, multiple services, and intensive data storage.

The new ENTICE 2.5 family of products offers a complete control services and software foundation for high-quality VoIP and IN/AIN services. With this announcement, Service Providers and partners can now offer several complete end-to-end solutions including:

o Triple Play (VoIP, broadband, and TV)
o Wholesale VoIP
o Residential/Enterprise VoBB
o Hosted IP Centrex
o Wireless
o Long Distance Service Provider

ENTICE products are modular and built on open services architecture, making it easy to combine a number of modules in any combination to suit existing or green-field deployment needs. Included in the ENTICE 2.5 family are the following products: Session Border Controller; E-REV Residential/Enterprise VoIP; Softswitch; and Enhanced Services Tandem/International Gateway VoIP Gateway.

"ENTICE currently has over 100 customers with 150-plus installations throughout the world on Red Hat Linux platforms. As these customers grow their business, reliability and operational management will be incredibly important," said Bill Skinner, telco products manager for Stratus Technologies. "Stratus' ENTICE and ftServer products represent a combined hardware and software infrastructure that can adapt and grow with the provider. This increased capability will also allow customers to interconnect between legacy telecom networks and next generation VoIP/IMS Services using the Stratus Inter-network Services Signaling Gateway (ISSG). Customers will be able to offer IN-based solutions like Number Portability, VPN, HLR, and pre-paid solutions to their IP customers."
