Ulticom to Demonstrate Signalware on Motorola AdvancedTCA Communications Servers

Announces Availability of Signalware for Centellis 3000 Series AdvancedTCA Servers

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2007 -- At the CTIA Wireless 2007 Conference, Ulticom®, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ULCM), a leading provider of network signaling solutions for wireline and wireless communication services, announced it will demonstrate its leading Signalware® signaling solutions on Motorola's AdvancedTCA® (ATCA) communications servers. Ulticom has worked with Motorola's Embedded Communications Computing business to port Signalware onto Motorola's Centellis™ 3000 series communications servers.

Motorola's Centellis series communications servers are designed to allow Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) to take advantage of an open, standards-based common platform while helping to protect investment in existing high availability software and applications. The common platform concept integrates hardware and software elements to enable equipment manufacturers to focus on adding their application-specific value, thereby reducing the time, cost and risk involved in deploying new revenue-generating applications or migrating existing applications to standards-based technology.

"The telecommunications industry's adoption of open, standardized architectures such as Motorola's ATCA-based communications servers signals the beginning of a new age of advanced communications services," said Osman Duman, senior vice president and CMO at Ulticom. "Our joint customers will benefit through rapid deployment of high-demand services while enjoying reduced development and support costs."

Ulticom's Signalware solution is a complete signaling software and SS7 hardware portfolio that features a comprehensive, multi-protocol signaling application development and deployment environment. Signalware provides the critical signaling foundation for network communications and allows NEPs to differentiate themselves by developing value-added applications such as wireless prepaid calling, voice, text and video messaging, global roaming and Voice over IP to their service provider customers.

"This demonstration underlines one of the key benefits of moving to open-standards technology, which is that there is a large and robust ecosystem of third parties with the solutions and expertise to help network equipment providers drive down infrastructure costs, improve time-to-market and focus on their core, revenue generating applications and services," said Jorge Magalhaes, director of marketing, Embedded Communications Computing, Motorola. "Deploying a common platform based on Motorola's ATCA communications servers makes it easier for NEPs to leverage independent software vendors, such as Ulticom with their signaling solution."

For over a decade, network equipment and service providers have relied on Ulticom to deliver the industry's most comprehensive, carrier-grade signaling solution for the most demanding communication services. Signalware is the market leading SS7 solution as measured by Venture Data Corporation (VDC), an independent technology market research and strategy firm. The complete Signalware product suite includes Signalware SS7, SIGTRAN, SIP, and Diameter with support for popular open computing platforms such as Solaris, Linux, and ATCA. In addition, Ulticom offers nSignia™ Signaling Gateway, Ulticom's network-ready infrastructure solution providing high performance SS7 message transport capabilities over IP.

Ulticom will be showcasing its entire Signalware product line and Motorola equipment in Booth 5083 at the CTIA Wireless 2007 trade show, being held this week in Orlando, Florida.
