Edgewater Networks and Atreus Systems Partner to Automate Deployment of Hosted VoIP Services


Santa Clara, Calif. – October 17, 2005 – Atreus Systems™, the premier supplier of VoIP and advanced IP service provisioning software, and Edgewater Networks, Inc., the leader in Application-Aware Networking™, today announced a partnership that will enable service providers to shorten installation cycles, reduce operating costs and increase the scalability of hosted VoIP services.

The joint solution combines the powerful capabilities of Edgewater Networks’ award-winning EdgeView network management system, EdgeMarc converged network appliances, and EdgeConnect managed PoE switch with Atreus’ Multi-Service Provisioning Solution. This compelling combination gives providers best-in-class, interoperable components for critical portions of hosted VoIP service offerings including customer premises equipment, element management, provisioning, activation and customer self-management software.

“Atreus is excited to work with Edgewater Networks. Edgewater has a proven track record delivering products that simplify deployment and ongoing maintenance to reduce costs for hosted VoIP service providers. Our automated software complements the EdgeView, EdgeMarc and EdgeConnect products, offering an unparalleled solution,” said Len Castelli, Vice President of Product Management for Atreus Systems.

The strategic partnership enables providers to automate the provisioning of the customer premises by creating global, site and device specific IP phone configuration files along with the appropriate EdgeMarc converged network appliance and EdgeConnect switch configuration files. These files are then routed and installed on the appropriate devices. Notification of the installation will be provided for workflow management purposes creating a closed loop process for automated flow through activation.

“We are thrilled to be working with the recognized leader in multi-service provisioning solutions. It’s a classic example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Both companies are bringing domain expertise that combined offer service providers a solution that will shorten time-to-market, reduce operating costs and create a competitive advantage,” said Dave Martin, Vice President of Marketing for Edgewater Networks.
