Ubiquity Launches Integrated Service Creation & Delivery Solution for Service Providers with IBM; Joint Solution Enables Rapid Creation and Deployment of Converged SIP Services

CHICAGO--(CCNMatthews - Jun 7, 2005) -

Ubiquity Software today announced an agreement with IBM to provide an integrated next generation service creation and delivery solution for service providers. The joint solution enables service providers in both enhanced VoIP and 3G IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) networks to design and streamline the creation and deployment of new services in fixed, mobile and broadband networks.

The integration of Ubiquity's SIP Application Server into IBM WebSphere software provides service providers faster, easier runtime deployment and management while orchestrating the high availability strengths of J2EE and SIP Servers. Integrated with IBM Rational software, the Ubiquity SIP Toolkit offers service providers a unified development environment, managing the lifecycle of service creation. Ubiquity solutions are enabled with Linux, IBM DB2 Universal Database, IBM eServer BladeCenter and IBM eServer xSeries. The IBM BladeCenter integrates servers, storage, networking and software to create an environment that is reliable, secure and easy to deploy and manage.

"Formally integrating the Ubiquity SIP Application Server with the unified service creation, deployment and management capabilities in IBM's middleware portfolio provides carriers with accelerated time to market for new SIP services, while reducing the complexity." said Tim Greisinger, director, Worldwide Communications Sector, IBM Software Group.

As service providers continue their network transformation to next generation networks, the IBM and Ubiquity integrated software solutions enable the enhancement and blending of services that become available with IMS adoption.

"We are excited to integrate our IMS-compliant SIP Application Server with IBM's market-leading WebSphere and Rational software and telecom solutions," said Ian McLaren, CEO of Ubiquity Software. "Together we offer service providers the ability to rapidly create and deploy a raft of enhanced converged services across next generation networks."

The Ubiquity SIP Application Server is a powerful, open service creation environment and carrier-grade runtime server. Its technology is based on the industry-standard Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), a fundamental software layer that links callers via Internet Protocol (IP) technology.

Note To Editors

IMS, a comprehensive services architecture standardized by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), gives operators a common service environment and incorporates IP, SIP, application servers, home subscriber servers and multimedia resource functions. IMS also allows operators to move up the value chain by allowing intelligent content delivery enabled by service and subscriber awareness. Service providers can implement IMS for numerous applications, taking advantage of the subscriber's presence and availability profile to monetize applications such as multimedia messaging, mobile conferencing, push-to-talk, customized infotainment and more.
