SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- BayPackets, Inc., a provider of enhanced voice and data solutions for wireless, wireline and VOIP operators, today announced that its carrier-proven Agility Network Services Platform (NSP) and applications are now available on Linux. With its Linux offering, BayPackets provides carriers with an open, cost-effective, high performance option for deploying enhanced services on off-the-shelf Linux-based hardware instead of on traditional proprietary operating systems. To learn more about BayPackets' solutions, visit booth #617 at Spring VON, taking place March 28-April 1 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

"Linux is the fastest growing operating system worldwide. Our decision to support Linux reflects the increasing demand from service providers for a more open, affordable infrastructure," said Ken Epps, president and chief executive officer of BayPackets. "The convergence of data and voice services, as well as carrier migration to distributed architectures, has brought the cost and flexibility advantages of Linux to the forefront. BayPackets' NSP, in conjunction with Intel(R) Architecture-based carrier-grade platforms, can deliver hardware cost-performance improvements of up to 40 percent to our carrier customers."

BayPackets'Agility NSP is a next-generation enhanced services platform that can be deployed as a service control point (SCP) or application server in a carrier's network. It offers network operators unprecedented openness and flexibility in the building, managing and provisioning of new voice and data services, allowing them to easily tailor their offering to the needs of their business and consumer customers. At the same time, operators are empowered to optimize their investment in traditional, circuit-switched networks, while providing a seamless migration path to packet-based networks.

"Increasingly, carrier-grade Linux and Intel Architecture-based server platforms are becoming a popular infrastructure option for service providers seeking to benefit from a more cost-effective means of deploying enhanced voice and data services," said Taufik Ma, general manager of the Enterprise Platforms and Services Division at Intel. "Companies such as BayPackets will drive adoption of these standards-based open-architecture platforms and operating systems to lower the cost and time required to deploy next- generation networks and services while supporting higher subscriber workloads."

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
