Apertio Discusses Data Consolidation for the Telecommunications Industry During CTIA

Global Customer Wins, Interoperability and Corporate News Featured

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2007 -- As communications service providers (CSPs) struggle to roll out new services quicker, breaking down the data storage silos is of prime concern. Apertio, the leading independent provider of subscriber-centric networks for mobile, fixed and converged telecommunications operators, will be sharing proven strategies on how to consolidate subscriber data, lay the foundation for next-generation network architecture and increase revenues through speeding new services delivery, during CTIA, March 27-29, in Orlando. The company will be at booth number 5283 in Hall C.

The company's Apertio One solution delivers a single, open subscriber-centric architecture that unifies and liberates the customer data currently locked away in siloed, proprietary infrastructure. Designed from the ground up to meet the unique needs of telecommunications providers and running on commercially available 'off the shelf' computer hardware, Apertio One dramatically reduces the total number of proprietary network elements and shrinks the infrastructure footprint from hundreds of square feet to just a few inches.

"North American CSPs are feeling the pressure from an increasingly savvy subscriber base to offer better services more quickly," said Andrew Wyatt, Chief Product Operations Officer, Apertio. "Where traditional networks were built to accommodate current customers, they lack the flexibility today's global market demands. Telecommunications operators must find ways to increase revenue generation while they streamline their networks, consolidating subscriber data is at the heart of the issue."

Apertio has recently helped operators from around the globe with these very issues. Indonesian provider PT Natrindo Telepon Seluler ("Natrindo") has chosen to build its core network infrastructure around Apertio One-HLR (Home Location Register) to accommodate rapid growth plans. All subscriber and network data from Natrindo customers will be centralized within Apertio's single, accessible repository, simplifying the network and providing a single view of the operator's subscribers, enabling Natrindo to better control its CAPEX and OPEX.

Leading Middle East wireless provider Qtel is using the Apertio One-HLR to manage record subscriber growth and increased traffic, which already is three-to-four times that of European providers. Qtel, with subscribers on pre- and post-paid, 2G, 3G and new generation, is using a single Apertio One-HLR for all its network and subscriber data.

Apertio has been working with leading technology providers such as BEA Systems, to ensure interoperability between key network components and enable CSPs to quickly build an open, flexible and scalable platform. Through the work with BEA, Apertio's One-HSS (Home Subscriber Server), and BEA WebLogic® SIP Server are guaranteed to rapidly integrate providing for the delivery of new generation IP-based communication services.

The company has recently appointed Brent Wyman as Vice President of Sales for the Americas, to oversee sales operations and growth across the region. Wyman has spent more then 25 years in the telecommunications industry, with companies such as Cellus USA, Inc. wireless amplifier innovator, Fujant, Inc., Lucent Technologies and AT&T.

Apertio will be at CTIA Wireless in Orlando, Florida, March 27-29, at booth number 5283, in Hall C. To secure a briefing, please contact apertio@marchpr.com.
