The convergence of IT and communications infrastructure is placing complex high availability, system clustering, and manageability requirements on system development. These requirements create tremendous problems with respect to scalability, development cost, time-to-market, and resources allocated to core competencies.

Middleware is positioned to decrease ongoing maintenance cost associated with infrastructure software. The consumer and corporate demand for more sophisticated telecom services, the viability of standards technologies and the emergence of new competitors are leading industry players to view COTS software as an imperative.

The technical requirements for deploying real-time services over global networks continue to grow. Applications must work in real-time, with low latency, and scale to millions of users. Yet traditional enterprise software solutions have reached their performance limits. Complex legacy applications are difficult, if not impossible, to grow or change.

The growing shift of the telecommunications market to a modular communications platform architecture will enable carriers to more rapidly deploy new services, reduce operating costs, READ MORE >
