RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- Harris Stratex Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSTX), the leading independent supplier of turnkey wireless network solutions, today announced that its NetBossR Business Unit is contributing key products, technical expertise and leadership to project Harmony, part of the Catalyst showcase at the TeleManagement World Conference. Sponsored by the TeleManagement Forum (TMF), the show is held in Nice, France May 20-24, 2007. Harmony is designed to showcase the assembly and operation of a service fulfillment operations support system (OSS) in a Provider Backbone Transport (PBT) based Next Generation Network (NGN) environment, while demonstrating the flexibility and adaptability of the new NetBoss XTT product line.

Harmony is part of the conference's Catalyst showcase, featuring demos of collaborative solutions to real-world problems. It demonstrates how standards- based technology can radically change an operator's approach to operating their network via an OSS. NetBoss's contributions to Harmony include a combined version of the NetBoss XET Element Manager and NetBoss XDT Domain Manager that provides Harmony with element and resource management, respectively.

The Harmony project shows that through the use of TMF artefacts and inter- Standards Development Organisation cooperation, an OSS with next-generation network management capabilities can be assembled and operated in real-world scenarios. It also manages n-play services over a PBT-based networks illustrating that such a system can evolve with the newest of networking technologies and service products.

"Complete and fast integration of new next-generation network technologies into the operations environment and creation of cost-efficient Operations Support Systems that can easily adapt to the dynamic NGN environment are two of the most pressing issues facing service providers today," said Alex Zhdankin, Harris Stratex Networks' NetBoss chief software architect and co-leader of the Harmony Catalyst team. "The NetBoss XTT product line, because it is built using the latest advances in standards and technologies, makes rapid and low-cost integration of emerging NGN technologies into Service Providers' operations environment a reality.
