  ROCHESTER, NY and VIENNA, AUSTRIA, Aug 15 (Marketwire)
PT (NASDAQ: PTIX), a leading global supplier of advanced network
communications, and Kapsch CarrierCom, a global provider of fixed,
mobile, transportation and access networks, today jointly announced that
PT's SEGway Universal Diameter Router (UDR) has been selected by Kapsch
CarrierCom as their LTE Signalling Router solution for Telecommunication
Operators. It will be offered to Kapsch's telecommunications customers as
part of their Evolved Packet Core solutions. 

    PT and Kapsch have an existing partnership agreement, whereby Kapsch
CarrierCom supplies the PT SEGway Signalling products (STPs and
Signalling Gateways) to Telecommunication Operators, as well as customers

emerging IMS and LTE networks for traffic management, authentication and
accounting. PT's SEGway UDR enables complex architectures comprised of
session controllers, gateways, policy servers and charging systems to be
intelligently and reliably interconnected, efficiently supporting the
tremendous volume of network information being exchanged. The Universal
Diameter Router, with its IP-native, built-for-purpose platform provides
scalable high performance through powerful multi-core processors. 

    "Kapsch CarrierCom considered PT's proven track record in relevant
technologies, as well as our experience with their high level of
excellence in support, to arrive at our decision to select PT as
strategic supplier for the Diameter Router," said Jochen Nowotny, Vice
President Product Line Management of Kapsch CarrierCom.
