STOCKHOLM -- Ingate Systems, producer of the world's first SIP-capable firewalls and SIParators™, today announced the addition of Ingate to Lucent’s Internet protocol (IP) Interoperability and Innovation Partner Program (I3P). The I3P partner program capitalizes on the flexibility and IP functionality of the Lucent EXS® Converged Services Platform (CSP). The EXS® CSP offers a wide range of innovative, next-generation telecommunications applications developed by companies who integrate software and hardware components to create complete turnkey solutions.IP technology is dominating the design of all future telecommunications networks. It is crucial to have a portfolio of integrated tested solutions that allow service providers the ability to extend the value of their current network, while allowing for the profitable evolution of their circuit switched/TDM network to IP. The I3P Program is a new extension to the Open Network Platforms Partner Program and has been initiated as an open and flexible way for vendors to conduct IP interoperability testing with the EXS® Converged Services Platform (CSP) using SIP and/or H.323 signaling protocols.Ingate, a Swedish technology company with a 25-year heritage of communications and security technology development, produces SIP-capable firewalls and SIParators™ (a device that plugs into an existing firewall to seamlessly enable SIP) for enterprises that want the time and money saving benefits of SIP-based realtime communications including presence, instant messaging, VoIP and conferencing.“It’s exciting to have Lucent’s endorsement of SIP interoperability through the creation of their I3P partner program,” said Ingate CEO Olle Westerberg. “Ingate is extremely pleased to make our SIP-capable firewalls and SIParators™ available to Lucent clients and to be recognized by Lucent as part of the future of IP communications.”Ingate SystemsLucent Technologies Inc.
