Data Management and Delivery Streamlined by Seamless Integration of Core Network Components

PALATINE, IL and RICHARDSON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2007 -- As telecommunications operators push to streamline their networks, component interoperability has become critical. Apertio, the leading independent provider of subscriber-centric networks for mobile, fixed and converged operators, and Mavenir Systems, an emerging network technology company, today announce compatibility between the Apertio One-HSS (Home Subscriber Server), and Mavenir's mOne™, a core broadband VoIP and mobile-network connection solution, having just completed a rigorous suite of interoperability tests utilizing standard IMS interfaces.

The combination of the Apertio One-HSS and Mavenir's mOne creates a powerful data consolidation and subscriber services foundation for today's communications service providers to build an open and scalable platform.
