Sonus Networks Announces Enhancements to ASX VoIP Feature Server

Sonus Networks, Inc., a market leader in next
generation IP-based network solutions, today announced enhancements to
its ASX VoIP platform to triple its effective capacity, increase
geographic resiliency and extend support for next generation voice over
broadband, cable, 4G/WiMAX networks, as well as legacy last mile CLASS 5

Sonus ASX is a market-leading solution for IP-based subscriber
features, supporting both consumer and business segments, with
deployments of millions of subscriber lines worldwide.

"Our continued investment in the ASX platform extends our
leadership in the subscriber services market," said Guru Pai, chief
operating officer at Sonus Networks. "As voice over broadband solutions
move to high volume deployments, scale and resiliency are of the
highest importance. Our enhanced ASX platform is designed to better
meet our customers’ needs and create significant operational
efficiencies for our customers as they upgrade their legacy networks or
deploy green-field networks. Service providers can rapidly scale our
standards-based distributed architecture, offer new services, and
shorten time to market to gain a competitive advantage."

The enhancements to the Sonus ASX platform include:

Increased Scale and Density: Already one of the most
scaleable platforms in the market, the ASX architecture now supports up
to three times greater densities. As a result, service providers can
dramatically reduce the number of hardware elements required to scale
the solution, reducing deployment cost and simplifying the points of

Enhanced Geographic Resiliency: Service providers can
now deploy SIP-based voice over broadband services with multiple layers
of redundancy. The enhanced architecture sets the new standard for
geographic resiliency by leveraging geographically dispersed servers
that are treated as one virtual resource.

Reduced Roll-out Time: Architectural improvements
further reduce the time and complexity required to roll out end-to-end
solutions. The Sonus ASX seamlessly integrates with other Sonus
elements including the Sonus Network Border Switch (NBS-9000) for
session security, Sonus PSX centralized policy and routing engine and
Sonus GSX-9000 media gateways.

The Sonus ASX VoIP platform is deployed worldwide by leading
incumbent service providers, cable providers, and alternative service
providers to deliver an industry leading array of consumer and business
call features. With the ASX, service providers invest in a single,
feature-rich platform to connect multiple types of end- points over an
extensive set of last mile technologies, enhancing subscriber experience
while reducing operational expense.
