Continuous Computing Joins Network Intelligence Alliance to Drive Innovation and Leadership for Next-Generation Network Solutions

New industry organization enables collaboration among technology providers to yield faster time to market for intelligent telecom network solutions.

4G WORLD (CHICAGO) and SAN DIEGO – October 20, 2010 – Continuous Computing, the global provider of integrated platform solutions that address the mobile broadband capacity challenge, today announced it has become a member of the Network Intelligence Alliance (NI Alliance), a new industry organization created to encourage collaboration among the Network Economy’s technology providers. Participation in the NI Alliance is expected to help Continuous Computing build and market innovative solutions for network equipment providers seeking to bring packet processing-based infrastructure to market quickly.

In today’s Network Economy—a world that depends and runs on networks—accurate visibility and precise tracking of data crossing networks have become crucial to the availability, performance and security of applications and services. The growing complexity of Internet Protocol (IP) transactions, the explosion of mobile applications and the mainstream adoption of cloud computing surpass the capabilities of conventional tools to improve how networks operate, expand services and police illicit activity. Network Intelligence is an emerging category of technology to reveal the critical details of the data locked inside network traffic and transactions.

The NI Alliance serves as a forum for collaboration among technology providers whose solutions secure data in transit, ensure efficient data delivery, monetize data transactions or track real-time information. The NI Alliance also seeks to educate the market and the public on the role and value of Network Intelligence in protecting sensitive information; delivering value-added services, applications and information; and ensuring better performance of network-dependent solutions.

“The NI Alliance creates an industry forum of reputable vendors with which we can collaborate to provide our customers the integrated solutions they need to handle ongoing mobile broadband capacity issues,” said Mike Coward, chief technology officer and co-founder of Continuous Computing. “Collaboration with NI Alliance members helps us deliver sophisticated, tailored offerings needed to address pressing mobile broadband capacity issues.”

Continuous Computing includes Network Intelligence within its AdvancedTCA (ATCA) packet processing platforms and multicore-optimized Trillium protocol software library, the combination of which forms the most complete standards-based hardware and software portfolio for accelerating network equipment providers’ time to market. The company offers best-in-class products and professional services for Long Term Evolution (LTE), Evolved High Speed Packet Access (HSPA+) and 3G Wireless and packet processing applications.

“Continuous Computing is a valuable addition to the NI Alliance and we welcome their participation,” said Erik Larsson, Chairman of the NI Alliance. “The NI Alliance is about collaborative innovation with companies like Continuous Computing playing a leadership role in packet processing and integrated platforms necessary for intelligent traffic management, internet offload, network security and related mobile broadband applications.”

Establishment of the NI Alliance was initiated by Qosmos, whose Network Intelligence technology components provide the crucial first step in understanding what traffic is passing through networks. Through the NI Alliance, Qosmos expands its collaborative approach to help vendors design and deliver advanced solutions with embedded NI technology in less time and at lower cost.
