Ulticom Delivers Support for Sun Solaris 10 and Compliance to New Industry Standards

Ulticom Bolsters Latest Signalware 9 Release With Extended Computing Platform Support and Enhancements to Address a Broader Range of Communication Network Architectures

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 17, 2005 -- Ulticom®, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULCM), the premier provider of network signaling software solutions, today announced a comprehensive set of enhancements to its industry-leading Signalware® product. Signalware 9 Service Pack 3 now provides support for Sun® Solaris™ 10 in addition to greater standards compliance, increased network scalability, enhanced security and improved usability. The latest release of Signalware offers Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) and System Integrators (SIs) the freedom to choose the right platform to develop their application and the peace of mind that it can be deployed across a variety of communication network scenarios.

The new release's high-performance implementation takes advantage of Solaris 10's native SCTP support to provide a reliable platform to host the most demanding IP-based telecommunications applications requiring SIGTRAN components such as M2UA, M2PA, M3UA and SUA.

"Signalware on Solaris 10 provides our telecom customers with one of the leading signaling solutions on Sun platforms with our most advanced carrier-grade operating environment to date," said Stephen Borcich, vice president, Partner Marketing, Sun. "The combination of Solaris and Signalware provides the rock-solid platform needed to support revenue-generating, rich communication services afforded by next-generation network architectures, such as IMS."

"The expanded operating system support allows our NEP and SI customers to tailor their deployments to meet a particular service provider's operating environment," said Osman Duman, vice president of marketing at Ulticom. "Adapting the operating environment to service providers' requirements increases customer satisfaction and expands the addressable market for our clients."

SIGTRAN protocol updates provided in Signalware 9 Service Pack 3 include support for SUA Class 2, which provides connection-oriented services required by network elements such as Radio Network Controllers. The new version also provides the flexibility to select between ETSI and IETF protocol implementations of M3UA, which allows greater flexibility for NEPs and SIs to adapt their application implementation to their clients' existing networks, providing a much broader deployment footprint.

Services are often required to operate across several networks simultaneously. Signalware 9 Service Pack 3 introduces the capability of establishing eight separate network appearances in the same or multiple networks, with each appearance having dedicated connection facilities. In addition, it enables services to operate as gateways or to seamlessly provide identical services from the same service logic and data across disparate networks.
