Continuous Picks GoAhead

SAN FRANCISCO and SAN DIEGO and BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Continuous Computing®, global provider of integrated systems and services that enable telecom equipment manufacturers to rapidly deploy Next Generation Networks (NGN), today announced the selection of GoAhead® Software's SAFfire(tm) middleware to ensure an open standards-based approach to availability and management within the FlexTCA(tm) System. This fully-integrated, application-ready platform allows customers to focus on delivering application-specific value supported by the system. The end result is that telecom equipment manufacturers can get to market faster and more affordably with reduced project risk and complexity. GoAhead SAFfire was selected as the most comprehensive implementation of the Service Availability(tm) Forum (SA Forum) Application Interface Specification (AIS) and GoAhead's experience in the market, with more than 30,000 instances of off-the-shelf middleware deployed worldwide.

"As the pressure grows to reduce costs and be first-to-market with differentiating services, more and more of our customers are turning to open standards-based solutions to gain an edge in this competitive environment," states Mike Dagenais, president and chief executive officer of Continuous Computing. "By extending GoAhead SAFfire, the leading AIS solution on the market, our FlexTCA System offers not only a best-in-class, application-ready ATCA hardware platform, but also an open standards-based implementation of Trillium® System Software, including the Unified Management Interface and Trillium fault-tolerant protocol software. This is a significant stepping stone for telecom equipment manufacturers who aim to realise the time and cost savings that standards offer without needing to spend valuable internal resources on platform integration," says Dagenais.
