SAN JOSE, Calif. -- BEA Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: BEAS - News), a world leader in enterprise and communications infrastructure software, today announced that Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel), Asia's leading communications operator and largest multi-market mobile operator, has deployed BEA WebLogic® Network Gatekeeper at the core of its next-generation service delivery platform (SDP). Standardizing on BEA WebLogic Network Gatekeeper has enabled SingTel to create a powerful services layer which can help SingTel realize new revenue opportunities with their existing network assets by leveraging content and services from a wide ecosystem of third-party partners.

"We are committed to providing our customers with convenient, valuable and innovative services via wireless and Internet platforms and recognize that these services must be developed quickly and must function reliably in order to meet the needs of today's consumer," said Mr. Ho Siaw Hong, vice president of Consumer Mobile Engineering, SingTel. "By extending our service delivery platform, BEA WebLogic Network Gatekeeper enables our partners to build on SingTel's service capabilities in order to create these new services for our customers and enhance revenue opportunities for the company."

A key aspect of next-generation SDPs is that they allow third-party partners to access an operator's telecom network capabilities such as messaging, call control, charging, presence and location. To ease the integration of an operator's capabilities with third-party partners, including IT developers, BEA WebLogic Network Gatekeeper uses open, industry standards such as Java and Web services, as well as custom telco interfaces. With BEA WebLogic Network Gatekeeper deployed in its SDP to enforce service level agreements, SingTel can manage and control the increased partner access and can source new revenue-generating services from a larger pool of third-party content and service provider partners.

"Rapid technological change, combined with increasing consumer demand for innovative and personalized services, has created significant opportunity for the telecommunications industry. In this dynamic market, innovation, responsiveness and reliability are critical," said Mike McHugh, vice president and general manager of BEA WebLogic Communications Platform, BEA Systems. "We are delighted that SingTel has deployed BEA WebLogic Network Gatekeeper as the agile and scalable foundation of its next-generation service delivery platform."
