Elephant Talk Expands Global Network With PT's SEGway™ Signalling Solution
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PT (Nasdaq: PTIX), the recently rebranded Performance Technologies, a leading global provider of advanced network communications solutions, today announced an agreement with Elephant Talk Communications, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ETAK), an international provider of business software and services to the telecommunications and financial services industry, in which PT will supply SEGway™ Signalling Transfer Points (STPs) for the company's expanding global presence. Elephant Talk operates networks in over a dozen markets in Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East.
Elephant Talk, a Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE), develops mobile telecom and content distribution solutions, and has positioned itself as the premier outsourcing partner for both Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) as well as Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs). The carrier has designed its facility-based network upon a hierarchical network topology using PT's SEGway Signalling Solution at the core, with additional STPs in each country where it operates. SEGway enables any operator to quickly, efficiently, and seamlessly introduce MVNO services.
As Elephant Talk expands its global footprint, SEGway's highly reliable and cost-efficient solution reduces signalling complexity and provides the ability to scale along with the rate of network growth. PT's robust platform becomes the point of interconnect with the mobile operators in Elephant Talk's network, and it provides the most cost-effective method of transport between cities. SEGway is the interface that provides access to Elephant Talk's customized services, enabling its MNO partners to provide a broad range of sophisticated services to their own existing base of MVNOs.
"We have reached an agreement with PT to supply STPs for our network expansion," said Martin Zuurbier, director and CTO of Elephant Talk. "We are already using PT's SEGway STPs in our network, and I am extremely pleased to extend our relationship as we increase our global presence.""PT's versatile IP-based signalling platform is ideal for the MVNE market due to its scalability and high reliability," said Patt Rice, senior vice president, Sales, Marketing, and Service for PT. "Elephant Talk's trust in our technology is evidenced by their decision to continue in a long-term partnership with PT at the core of their network."
