MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- TimesTen, Inc., a provider of real-time infrastructure software, and Kodiak Networks, a leading provider of instant wireless voice systems, today announced that TimesTenR has been incorporated into the Kodiak Real-Time ExchangeT (RTX) System, one of the industry's most advanced voice systems for delivering instant, feature-rich voice connections between individuals and groups. TimesTen was selected by Kodiak Networks for its adherence to open standards, real-time performance and continuous availability - elements required to deliver the fastest, most consistent, highest-quality user experience for advanced push-to-talk (PTT) services.

The Kodiak RTX is an industry-leading instant wireless voice system that boosts the productivity of business professionals and consumers while providing significant and immediate financial benefits to carriers. Working over today's highly optimized voice channels, the Kodiak RTX System enables carriers to offer all the benefits associated with current voice networks, such as speed and performance, while adding desirable premium calling features. Within the Kodiak RTX System, TimesTen manages all network configuration and subscriber/group information, allowing rich profiles, innovative, permission-based buddy lists management, and presence updates to be processed and managed in real time, providing subscribers with greater flexibility and control. TimesTen also facilitates very fast call set-up times, which results in increased overall user productivity.

"The wireless industry has become fiercely competitive. Shrinking margins and rising customer churn are forcing carriers to look for innovative ways to capture and retain subscribers," said Bruce Lawler, vice president, business development at Kodiak Networks. "Market-energizing services like advanced push-to-talk are essential to carriers. TimesTen is helping to meet this market demand by providing the infrastructure software needed for a highly responsive PTT experience," added Lawler.

"Every major U.S. carrier has indicated that PTT is a service that they plan to offer, while interest globally is growing rapidly as well," said Jim Groff, CEO, TimesTen, Inc. "PTT is fast becoming a cornerstone offering, since it offers a differentiated and compelling way for subscribers to communicate efficiently and become more productive. Kodiak Networks is delivering this in a fast, feature-rich and cost-effective architecture by leveraging best-of-breed components such as TimesTen," added Groff.
