BURLINGTON, MA, February 11, 2010 — Acme Packet® (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session border control solutions, today announced three significant new solutions that transform how service providers can both simplify and scale IMS, Rich Communications Suite (RCS) and next-generation network (NGN) service delivery networks: the Net-Net® SIP Multimedia-xpress; the Net-Net 4500 Session-aware Load Balancer and Net-Net SBC Cluster; and the Net-Net Route Manager Central. Together these solutions reduce the entry cost for service delivery infrastructure and provide linear scaling of subscriber capacity with predictable performance and low incremental costs.
Acme Packet’s Net-Net SIP Multimedia-xpress (SMX) creates a simplified, single system RCS IMS-equivalent or NGN delivery platform at a cost of approximately $2–$3 per subscriber for as few as 100,000 subscribers. The Net-Net 4500 Session-aware Load Balancer (SLB) and Net-Net SBC Cluster enable scaling the Net-Net SMX solution, and any other Acme Packet access SBC deployment, to 2 million subscribers from a single IP address for SIP signaling. Lastly, Acme Packet’s Net-Net Route Manager Central (RMC) consolidates and automates the management and distribution of up to 2 million routes per Acme Packet SBC and session routing proxies (SRPs) within Acme Packet’s Open Session Routing (OSR) architecture.
