CHELMSFORD, Mass. -- Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS - News), a leading supplier of service provider Voice over IP (VoIP) infrastructure solutions, announced that in the Company's ongoing efforts to expand network operator access to IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)-ready applications and services, Soleo Communications is the first member to join Sonus' recently launched Interoperability Certification Program, part of Sonus' Open Services Partner Alliance (OSPA). As the industry's market leader in the IP-based voice market, carrying more than 3x the number of IP voice minutes than any other equipment provider according to iLocus Research, Sonus continues to drive interoperability initiatives across the industry in order to help network operators recognize the benefits of IMS-ready applications and services through a more robust communications experience.

"In order for IP-based voice services to reach critical mass, the different players in the industry must collaborate to ensure seamless interoperability of their products and services. Sonus has taken a leadership role on this front by augmenting its OSPA with the Interoperability Certification Program," said Steve Edwards, Chief Marketing Officer, Sonus Networks. "Soleo Communications offers a valuable service to network operators, and we're pleased they have chosen to become the first member to take advantage of the extensive testing capabilities the new program offers."

The Sonus Interoperability Certification Program leverages the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL) to conduct extensive testing and streamline the delivery of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based products and services into the rapidly evolving IP-based voice market. As the flagship partner in the Sonus Certification Program, Soleo's Service Request Platform, a robust, standards-based VoIP framework that delivers automated agent and subscriber services, will be integrated with Sonus' complete IMS-ready network architecture. The Soleo Service Request Platform enables network operators to easily introduce new services, and integrates traditional and next generation networks using the same gateway infrastructure. As a result, Soleo's open, scalable framework delivers immediate benefits while allowing customers to seamlessly migrate from legacy technologies to evolving IMS standards.
