Acme Packet Announces Debut of Net-Net 4500 Session Border Controller

BURLINGTON, MA, SEPTEMBER 16, 2008 Acme Packet (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session border control solutions, today announced the introduction of its Net-Net 4500, a new addition to the Net-Net 4000 series that increases performance and capacity by 100% or more in session border controller (SBC), multiservice security gateway (MSG) and session routing proxy (SRP) product configurations. Positioned between the Net-Net 4250 and Net-Net 9200 in terms of price, performance and capacity, the Net-Net 4500 satisfies service provider, large enterprise and contact center requirements at both network access and interconnect border points.


As the number of subscribers utilizing IP-based interactive communications continues to grow on a worldwide basis, service providers are making investments in network expansion. Similarly, enterprises who have already embraced voice over IP (VoIP) are expanding session capacity in their networks in order to reap the business benefits offered by presence-enabled unified communications (UC). Emerging wireless services leveraging femtocell or Wi-Fi access points to enable fixed-mobile substitution (FMS) and fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) will require security gateway platforms with high-IPsec tunnel capacity. Industry experts have similar perspectives on these trends: in a recent survey conducted by Infonetics Research, session capacity and performance were identified by service providers as the top two SBC requirements. Infonetics cited unabated VoIP subscriber growth as the driving factor behind this survey’s results.


Acme Packet constantly strives to anticipate the ever-changing demands of new services and applications, so our customers can evolve their networks to meet those demands, said Patrick MeLampy, CTO of Acme Packet. The positive customer feedback we’ve received from beta and early customer deployments of the Net-Net 4500 assures us that our vision is aligned with that of our customers.


Net-Net 4500 raises the bar for performance and capacity

The Net-Net 4500 provides the extra measure of performance and capacity needed to help Acme Packet customers support an ever-increasing number of users and volume of sessions. Relative to the Net-Net 4250, the Net-Net 4500 platform offers enhanced levels of performance and capacity that benefit all Acme Packet product categories:


In SBC configurations, the Net-Net 4500 processes up to 160% more messages per second (MPS) for SIP, H.323, SIP-H.323 interworking and MGCP, optimizing the number of calls per second (CPS) that the network can accommodate. With a 100% increase in media capacity to 64,000 sessions, the Net-Net 4500 eases the transition to next-generation services and applications, such as interactive video, that generate more media flows per session.


As an SRP, the Net-Net 4500 supports 2 million local routing rules, 100% more than the Net-Net 4250. This expansion can reduce the number of routing elements required in many networks, reducing overall complexity and cost.


When operating as an MSG, the Net-Net 4500 supports 512,000 IPsec tunnels for backhauling SIP or GSM traffic over untrusted networks from femtocells or dual-mode endpoints. This is 300% more than the Net-Net 4250, greatly reducing the cost per tunnel.


The Net-Net 4500 also delivers enhanced security capabilities in SBC or MSG configurations with the ability to support up to 300% more dynamic access control list (ACL) entries. Dynamic access control protects both the Net-Net 4500 and core service infrastructure from attacks and overloads.


New hardware evolves industry’s leading carrier-class border control platform

The Net-Net 4500 inherits many of the platform characteristics that made the Net-Net 4250 the industry’s leading SBC platform. Like all other Acme Packet platforms, the Net-Net 4500 operates on Acme Packet’s Net-Net OS, which delivers the industry’s richest set of functions and features for controlling traffic across and between IP network borders, including carrier-class high availability for non-stop service delivery. The increased performance and larger capacities of the Net-Net 4500 are made possible by a series of system-level enhancements, including:


more powerful host processor


more memory


higher capacity content addressable memory (CAM)


higher speed secure services module (SSM) for IPsec and TLS


Network interface unit (NIU) modules offering a variety of copper and fiber interfaces at speeds up to 1000 Mbps, redundant load-sharing 300 watt power supplies, and the easy-to-read blue LCD display are all retained on the Net-Net 4500.


Additionally, the Net-Net 4500 utilizes a new power supply subsystem that consumes less power, offering lower operating expenditures (OpEx) and a more eco-friendly footprint, as well as other platform enhancements designed to simplify and enhance installation and maintenance.

InnoPath, Stratecast Quantify the Positive Billion-Dollar Impact of Mobile Device Management on Customer Care Expenses

Addresses $25 Billion Global Problem in Managing Advanced Mobile Devices


Stratecast, industry analysts and market experts, together with InnoPath, the leader in Mobile Device Management (MDM), have developed a comprehensive tool for assessing the financial impact of mobile device management on network operations. Based on expansive and in-depth research, experience and analysis Stratecast concludes that using MDM within mobile operators’ customer care organizations could have a major impact on global operational and support costs in the range of $3 billion in 2009 to over $23 billion by 2013.


The advanced services customers demand from their cell phones are creating an unprecedented burden on the mobile operator. says Nancee Ruzicka of Stratecast’s OSS/BSS Global Competitive Strategies group. Increasingly complex requirements for device configurations, software updates and convoluted trouble-shooting procedures are driving up support costs. These are costs which cannot be contained without streamlining traditional methods of customer support for mobile devices.


Using MDM, customer care representatives both on the phone and in the store can view a customer’s handset configuration and quickly understand what is missing, incorrect, or out-of-date. Following identification of the problem, a solution can be immediately applied Over the Air (OTA) without any intervention from the customer. This streamlines the customer support process, creating efficiencies that reduce the number and length of support contacts and in turn results in tremendous cost savings. Stratecast and InnoPath predict that these cost savings, when applied to an average North American operator (with 70 million subscribers), would result in a total savings of $2 billion dollars over five years.


Proving the ROI for MDM-delivered customer care is critical as the device management market evolves from point products to end-to-end solutions that address the true extent of operator requirements. Customer care is strategic to wireless operators and as these expenses grow operators will look to vendors with proven operational expertise, technical leadership, and financial stability to help contain escalating costs. InnoPath’s unique solution permits the operator to adapt the basic MDM client on the subscriber’s handset to their specific customer care requirements, without restriction based on network technology (GSM, CDMA, WiMAX).


The jointly developed ROI model includes more than twenty-five independent variables and leverages both Stratecast’s empirical data and InnoPath’s practical experience. The results clearly prove the impact of mobile device management on customer care operations in mobile operators. Copies of the business case analysis, as well as registration for the joint InnoPath/Stratecast webcast on the model to be held on Oct. 7, are available at http://innopath.com/care.

Juniper Networks Introduces Dynamic Services Architecture to Accelerate New Service Deployments for Enterprises and Service Providers

New Dynamic Services Architecture Changes the Game in Networking; Fuels Innovation and Helps Drive a Sustainable Competitive Advantage


SUNNYVALE, Calif. September 15, 2008 Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, is changing the game in networking with the introduction of the industry’s first Juniper Networks Dynamic Services Architecture designed to help high-performance businesses tightly align rapidly changing business requirements with network technology investments to accelerate new service deployments. The Dynamic Services Architecture is the foundation on which the newly announced Juniper Networks SRX dynamic services gateways (see today’s related announcement) are built, offering an extensible no compromise solution to scaling integrated services and network capabilities on a single architecture. This enables enterprises, service providers and public sector agencies to quickly and cost-effectively take advantage of new service opportunities, address changing business requirements, and deliver superior user experiences.


High-performance businesses view the network as critical for taking advantage of dynamic service and business models which fuel innovation. As these businesses continue to massively scale their networks to support advanced applications and services, they can no longer afford the service integration and performance tradeoffs associated with administering and managing legacy network infrastructure. Innovative businesses require a dynamic network infrastructure that is fast, reliable and secure, and that paves the path toward seizing new opportunities. These challenges include keeping pace with an escalating and evolving security threat landscape, which remains a leading source of network downtime and slow service; contending with an inability to quickly scale networks to deliver applications and support thousands to millions of users; and the continuing operational inefficiencies that plague legacy network infrastructure, including the rising cost, complexity and inability to adapt to changing requirements.


Racks of service specific appliances and blades along with a multitude of operating systems and management interfaces create a level of network complexity that introduces latency and inhibits new service deployments, said Abner Germanow, director, Enterprise Networks, IDC. A service architecture that enables businesses to scale in all dimensions dynamically with virtually ‘any’ service will quickly meet the business requirements and streamline investment decisions.


Maximizing the value of services and applications while simultaneously minimizing costs is critical for service providers to drive revenues, said Ray Mota, chief research officer, Synergy Research Group. There is a fundamental requirement for a high-performance scalable network architecture that delivers performance, reliability and security at scale to accelerate new service deployment.

As the leader in high-performance networking, Juniper uniquely understands today’s challenges for enterprises and service providers and continues to innovate, to design, develop and deliver solutions that offer greater choice and control in quickly meeting changing requirements. The Dynamic Services Architecture includes Juniper’s dedicated dual management engine and purpose-built, carrier-class terabit speed fabric that allows for massive scale of Ethernet ports and services processing independently. The new architecture delivers the ability to readily turn-on a wide range of services, including stateful firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Distributed Denial of Service (DDos/DoS) protection, Network Address Translation (NAT), dynamic routing, and Quality of Service (QoS). This ability greatly accelerates application and service deployments. The Dynamic Services Architecture serves as the framework for the evolution of networking, which will not only change the way businesses operate, but also improve how networks are architected.


Juniper continues to invest in the innovation necessary to deliver the high-performance network infrastructure that matters most to high-performance businesses, said Mark Bauhaus, executive vice president and general manager, Services Layer Technologies, Juniper Networks. Escalating security and performance demands magnify the need for a dynamic approach that allocates and maximizes the utilization of necessary security and network resources, without compromising network performance. Juniper is the first to deliver on a technology that builds upon a Dynamic Services Architecture, changing the game in the provisioning of high-performance security and networking services to accelerate the deployment of advanced business and consumer services and applications, all while reducing cost, complexity and risk.

Content from these companies will now work with FusionOne’s MightyBackup Content service, ensuring the seamless migration of subscribers’ licensed content when switching from one mobile device to another.


We love this service as it gives our carrier partners and end-consumers the best possible continuity across handset migrations as better phones come out, all while keeping the entertainment that customers have searched and paid for intact, said David Danon, CEO of Sonic Boom.


MightyBackup Content, previously known as MightyBackup Premium, is the first commercial solution that addresses the complex challenges associated with migrating licensed content from one mobile phone to another. Content providers can now preserve and extend existing relationships with their subscriber customers independent of a subscriber’s mobile device. Furthermore, subscribers will no longer be inconvenienced by having to remember, repurchase and re-download applications from their previous phone. FusionOne is the only company in the mobile content backup space that offers this solution.


“Our partnership with FusionOne is in line with our mission to help subscribers make the most out of their mobile experience” said Alex Poon, CEO of Bonfire Media. “We are pleased to be a part of this important service to our customers, who can now be assured that their Bonfire content will be ready and waiting for them on their new mobile device.”


“We are very pleased to be partnering with FusionOne,” said Thomas Ellsworth, CEO of GoTV Networks. “GoTV’s customers will benefit from the ease of changing mobile devices without losing the applications. FusionOne creates the perfect bridge between the customer and the technological evolution of devices with our original programming.”


Today FusionOne also announced the FusionOne Content Developers Network, which certifies that licensed content from member companies, consisting of third-party content developers and providers, is compatible with FusionOne’s MightyBackup Content solution.


We are pleased to welcome these five companies into our newly formalized partner program, said Mohan Sadashiva, senior vice president of marketing for FusionOne. Interest in partnering with FusionOne has grown immensely over the past year, as more and more companies realize the inherent business benefits involved with the ability for their users to transfer their licensed content to new handsets. Together we are blazing a trail for what we are confident will become a new industry standard.


Both announcements were made at the CTIA Wireless I.T. and Entertainment conference, being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from September 10-12, 2008. FusionOne is exhibiting in booth 852.

SAN JOSE, Calif. September 10, 2008 FusionOne, the leading provider of mobile phone backup services, today announced the formation of the FusionOne Content Developers Network. This initiative certifies that licensed content from member companies, consisting of third-party content developers and providers, is compatible with FusionOne’s MightyBackup Content service.


Companies that join the FusionOne Content Developers Network can integrate their content with FusionOne’s MightyBackup Content solution. As a result, content from member companies can be seamlessly migrated from one mobile device to another, enhancing customer loyalty and eliminating the need for subscribers to remember, re-discover, and re-download their applications onto a new mobile device.


The development of the FusionOne Content Developers Network is in response to the growing demand for mobile content transfer capabilities that enable content providers to preserve and extend existing relationships with their customers, said Mohan Sadashiva, senior vice president of marketing for FusionOne. It gives members an edge over their competitors by certifying that their applications can be transferred to a new mobile device. It’s also attractive to carriers, who can offer licensed content transfer services for additional applications, thereby increasing their revenue potential.

Available on its own or as part of FusionOne’s Mobile Content Transfer solution, MightyBackup Content is the first commercial solution that addresses the complex licensing challenges associated with migrating licensed content from one mobile phone to another. FusionOne is the only company in the mobile content backup space that offers this solution.


This program is very exciting for our customers and our developer partners.

To date, FusionOne has signed partnership agreements with 45 content developers and providers. These companies will automatically become members of the FusionOne Content Developers Network.
