Kabira® Joins F5 Networks Technology Alliance Program

Kabira's Powerful Orchestration Suites Combine With F5's Application Delivery Networking Products to Improve Performance, Security and Reliability of Application Services

BARCELONA, SPAIN and SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - February 15, 2010) -  Kabira Technologies, Inc., a leading innovator of communications software applications and performance technology elements that accelerate Pace of Return, announced today that it has joined the F5 Networks Technology Alliance Program (TAP). As a member of the TAP, Kabira plans to complete certification of its Orchestration by Kabira™ software suites with F5 Application Delivery Networking products. During the initial phase of this partnership, Kabira and F5 will integrate Kabira's Policy Orchestration™ and Fulfillment Orchestration™ product suites with F5® BIG-IP®solutions. Working together, Kabira and F5 can provide their mutual customers greater insight into their network and applications. This will help enable customers to offer innovative services and more nimbly adapt to developing business and technology challenges.

"We are delighted to partner with F5," said Manish Gupta, VP of Marketing at Kabira. "The combination of Kabira and F5 capabilities will ensure more optimized transaction flow, which will help drive accelerated revenues and service profitability for our customers."

"We're excited to welcome Kabira into our Technology Alliance Program," said Calvin Rowland, VP of Application Partner Programs at F5. "The integrated Kabira/F5 solution will provide customers with enhanced control over how their applications and networks are accessed. In addition, Kabira's policy enforcement capabilities will enable customers to streamline application services to support their business objectives -- and drive revenue -- without sacrificing security."

Policy Orchestration by Kabira offers greater functionality than Communication Service Providers (CSPs) typically get from traditional policy servers. It provides a single control point that includes key policy server functionality, charging and control systems, real-time usage monitors, and profile cache platforms. The Policy Orchestration suite of products comprises Kabira's Policy Control Element™, Subscriber Profile Management Element™, Charging Control™, and Real-time Usage Monitoring Element™. Using Policy Orchestration by Kabira, CSPs can seamlessly combine the capabilities of many network elements to deliver innovative services for their customers.

Fulfillment Orchestration by Kabira provides an agile and flexible framework for CSPs to reliably automate the delivery of high-value complex and converged services to customers -- faster and at lower cost than other alternatives. Kabira Order Management Element™, Provisioning and Activation Element™, Resource Management and Planning Element™, and Mediation Element™ make up the Fulfillment Orchestration product suite. Fulfillment Orchestration extends connectivity and workflow capabilities for CSPs and, when combined with a powerful rules-based service catalog and integrated network inventory, seamlessly enables support for conventional and/or convergent networks and services.
