Seamlessly into Carrier Networks



Jun 05, 2001, 01:00 ET from LynuxWorks, Inc.

    ATLANTA, June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- LynuxWorks(TM) Inc., a provider of open
 source and true real-time embedded solutions for the post-PC era, today
 announced, at SUPERCOMM, that it is facilitating carrier-grade scalability and
 reliability for Pulsar Communications. Pulsar selected LynxOS(R), the
 commercially available, real-time operating system from LynuxWorks, because it
 meets the reliability and scalability requirements for Pulsar's WavPort suite
 of products.
     LynxOS provides the foundation for Pulsar's carrier-grade offering. The
 first product in the suite, WavTalk, is entering market trials late this
 summer and will be ready for general availability in Q30l. The companies plan
 to demonstrate the product at SUPERCOMM tradeshow in booth number 8286.
     Pulsar Communications develops applications and integrated solutions for
 both Tier 1 carriers and smaller emerging carriers. Pulsar's applications are
 integrated into a common-call control layer of a software platform, called
 WavPort, that enables a seamless delivery of products to subscribers of legacy
 switching networks, new generation networks that employ media gateways and
 servers and support Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) or H.248, and
 packet-based networks that support H.323 and Session Initiation Protocol
 (SIP). The company's Voice Activated feature server, and its complementary Web
 Portal, permit voice and Web activation of both Class 4 and Class 5 call
 control features and applications from wireline phones, wireless handsets,
 Personal Digital Assistant (PDAs) and computer terminals.
     WavPort, is the first and only voice-activated and Web-provisioned
 carrier-grade user interface that provides more intuitive access to local and
 long distance telephone services. Pulsar's WavTalk voice-enabled application
 services provide integrated, network-based, voice-activated dialing
 capabilities for carriers. Pulsar will continue to roll out new WavPort
 feature server platforms to correspond to product development with network
 convergence, market acceptance and new industry developments.
     "We evaluated a number of competitive products over a series of three
 months, we selected LynxOS because of its response time, performance,
 scalability and the fact that it is POSIX compliant," stated Chris Kingsley,
 vice president of product development for WavPort and its chief architect. "We
 are ahead of schedule due to using LynxOS as our development platform -- the
 OS is so robust that we haven't needed support," he observed.
     "We are pleased to supply a product that addresses the needs of a
 visionary telecom provider like Pulsar," stated Bob Morris, vice president of
 marketing at LynuxWorks. "Our commitment to our customers is to provide a
 stable, scalable and available foundation for embedded network applications.
 Pulsar's experience indicates that we are successfully delivering on that
 promise."
