ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PT (Nasdaq: PTIX), a leading global provider of advanced network communications solutions, today announced the release of its highest capacity STP and Signalling Gateway platform to date, the SEGway X401e. The latest addition to PT's signalling portfolio addresses the challenges faced by large carriers planning to grow or migrate their networks to next-generation capability.
PT's newest offering features exceptional performance on a robust, carrier grade platform, supporting a remarkable 4,536 SS7 links in a single frame. For carriers that need to maintain connectivity in the traditional SS7 network while transitioning to the IP (SIGTRAN) signalling environment, this high density, low price-to-performance ratio is critical. The unprecedented transaction per second rate follows a long PT tradition of delivering powerful 5-nines systems in a small footprint. In addition to the highest linkset capacity in the industry, SEGway X401e's capacity includes 3000 SIGTRAN associations, Global Title Translation (GTT), and other powerful features to seamlessly bridge traditional and IP signalling networks.
IP is the key to achieving the scalability and adaptability required for today's leading edge signalling architecture. PT's product evolution has consistently featured IP-based solutions that far surpass the telecom industry's acceptable performance rates. Because SEGway's signalling architecture is strategically designed around IP functionality, it has the flexibility to scale, and to be equally efficient in a fully IP-based environment, in NGN signalling networks, or while bridging to traditional TDM-based networks.
"It's not enough to keep up with growth; we must stay far ahead of growth in order to make our customers successful," said John Grana, Sr. VP, Products and Technology of PT. "Building on an IP backbone allows PT to provide scalable products and flexible value added features in their STPs such as SIGTRAN connectivity, and IP-Edge solutions, along with Global Title Translation and Point Code Emulation™."Visit PT at the Mobile World Congress Show in Barcelona, February 14-17, Hall 1 Stand #1G15.
