Kabira Technologies to Provide Highly Available Real-Time Transaction Capability for Hitachi's MVNE Service Platform

Kabira Transaction Platform Core Technology for Hitachi's MVNE Service Platform for Mobile WiMAX

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - Kabira Technologies, Inc., a leading telecommunications software provider, announced today that both Kabira's Provisioning and Service Activation™ (KPSA) and the Kabira Transaction Platform™ (KTP) have been incorporated as essential components for Hitachi's WiMAX Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) service platform. These software technologies from Kabira deliver the performance and flexibility to meet stringent core requirements of the MVNE Service Platform for Mobile WiMAX offerings delivered by Hitachi -- exhibiting carrier grade redundancy, low latency and high speed transaction capability and scalability to handle exponential traffic growth.

"We are extremely pleased to see further adoption of our product offerings by Hitachi pursuant to our OEM Agreement signed earlier this year, in which our technologies are embedded as part of the MVNE Service Platform always-on configuration," said Chris Clabaugh, vice president of business development for Kabira. "Kabira's unique in-memory highly available transaction platform has enabled Hitachi to provide a robust infrastructure ensuring that no single transaction is ever lost," Mr. Clabaugh adds. "Furthermore, Kabira's technology contributes to a substantial reduction in the amount of software development time and effort needed to create and support MVNO offerings and a smaller, more cost-efficient hardware footprint as compared to competing technologies."

The use of Kabira's KTP and KPSA products provides an event integration layer or network service bus for this MVNE platform. The Hitachi MVNE platform integrates provisioning workflows, charging functions, billing systems, contact centers, and OSS functions. This enables Hitachi to provide MVNE offerings that are specifically designed to minimize the effort required for operators to launch new service offerings, and thereby accelerating entry into new markets.
