I recently had the opportunity to ask Steve Northridge of Ulticom about IP communications, his business and what the future possibly holds for the company.
Ulticom deploys service-enabling communications software for the telecommunications industry with signaling software that enables deployment of mobility, location, payment, switching and messaging services within wireless, IP, and wireline networks.

RT: Please outline your new corporate initiatives.
Ulticom has been the world leader in signaling products with our Signalware platform which supports SS7, Sigtran, SIP and Diameter allowing our customers to focus on the value they bring through the deployment of applications on the carrier grade Signalware platform. New corporate initiatives are centered on our nSignia product line which leverages our Signalware platform to provide gateway functions packaged on a computer platform ready for deployment with no customer development required. The nSignia product line is in response to changing the signaling transport environment combined with the desire from our customers to isolate the signaling component allowing the customer application to be agnostic to the signaling requirements for different deployments.
RT: How is IP communications changing your company’s strategy?
IP communications has become pervasive. Traditionally, SS7 is transported over lower level protocols specifically designed to support SS7.
