3 UK and Kabira Grow Their Joint Policy Orchestration Programs

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - February 17, 2010) - Kabira Technologies, Inc., a leading innovator of communications software applications and performance technology elements, today announced advancement to the next stage of its deployment at 3 UK with its Policy Orchestration product suite. Having successfully completed technology acceptance testing with Kabira, 3 UK is now engaged in user acceptance testing, with full roll-out to follow soon.

"Kabira's service aware Policy Orchestration software is an integral component of our overall service control strategy at 3 UK," said Graham Baxter, chief technology officer at 3 UK. "The reliability of the underlying platform, flexibility and integration capability makes it an important component in the 3 UK network strategy. Without Kabira's ability to readily modify and scale integration of service control requirements, deploying and maintaining service control and charging solutions would rapidly become a time-consuming and costly burden."

"3 UK continues to deliver consistent business growth in a very competitive environment by implementing creative business models and deploying innovative infrastructure solutions," said Manish Gupta, vice president of global marketing at Kabira. "Kabira is fortunate to have its products be selected to be one of the key building blocks that enable continued business growth for 3 UK."

Kabira has demonstrated that it is committed to delivering 3 UK's vital business, functional and performance needs, as these requirements are vital for the mutual success of the companies. Since market factors continue to make reduction in time-to-revenue a principal objective, this close coordination between Kabira and 3 UK has been extremely valuable.

Kabira's Policy Orchestration software and the Kabira Fluency transaction platform technology are designed to integrate multiple IT and network systems quickly, easily and at a fraction of the overall project times of other service control alternatives. With support from the domain experts on the Kabira Professional Services Team, 3 UK's deployment continues moving forward to new levels of efficiency and innovation.
