Performance Technologies Debuts NGN Xpress(TM) Product Line

ROCHESTER, N.Y., -- Performance Technologies (NASDAQ:PTIX) , a leading global provider of advanced network communications solutions, today unveiled their newest product line, Xpress(TM), a portfolio of SIP-based applications and enabling infrastructure targeted towards carriers deploying next-generation network (NGN) architectures.

The adoption of voice-over-packet architectures by wireless and wireline carriers, and the emergence of SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) as the predominant signaling protocol on these networks have presented new opportunities for service providers to market media-rich and web-friendly applications to their subscribers. Performance Technologies' Xpress(TM) is a new approach for delivering these capabilities in the most cost effective manner. Based on a pure IP implementation, new service offerings can be quickly developed and readily deployed, network-wide, on IMS enabled, converged TDM/IP and VoIP networks.

"Rather than relying on costly, circuit-switched, single application platforms, Performance Technologies delivers multiple SIP-based services starting with a single Xpress SIP Application Server, and can rapidly add or modify services without interruption," said Patt Rice, Senior Vice President for Performance Technologies. "Our strategy facilitates rapid delivery of monetizing features such as Prepaid Services, Voice Messaging, and WEB/Mobile 2.0 interactive media-rich services in any IMS network on a right-sized hardened platform."

Xpress offers service providers and application developers alike a complete service development method to rapidly and cost-effectively deliver profitable calling services and other NGN applications. Its open architecture and variety of next-generation network standards - including SIP, IMS, VoiceXML, MGCP, and XML, result in a remarkably flexible and scalable multi-service development environment. Xpress includes web services APIs for easy integration with service providers' existing provisioning applications, a software based media server for IVR and announcements, as well as robust billing features to optimize service revenue.

Featuring a wide range of configurations and based on Performance Technologies' NexusWare® Carrier Grade Linux® distribution, the Xpress SIP platforms are ideal for deploying reliable applications with built-in OA&M support. Built on the company's line of IPnexus® Carrier Grade Systems, users can expect five-nines (99.999%) reliability. Xpress also supports an N+1 configuration within a cluster, ensuring that the failure of any one server will not affect overall system capacity.

Performance Technologies' Xpress product line will be featured on their Stand #2G39 at the Mobile World Congress Show in Barcelona, February 15-18, 2010.
