PT Debuts Highest Capacity SEGway(TM) X401e Signalling Solution for Large Carriers Worldwide

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

ROCHESTER, New York, February 10, 2011 - PT (Nasdaq: PTIX), a leading global provider of advanced network
communications solutions, today announced the release of its highest capacity
STP and Signalling Gateway platform to date, the SEGway X401e. The latest
addition to PT's signalling portfolio addresses the challenges faced by large
carriers planning to grow or migrate their networks to next-generation

PT's newest offering features exceptional performance on a robust,
carrier grade platform, supporting a remarkable 4,536 SS7 links in a single
frame. For carriers that need to maintain connectivity in the traditional SS7
network while transitioning to the IP (SIGTRAN) signalling environment, this
high density, low price-to-performance ratio is critical. The unprecedented
transaction per second rate follows a long PT tradition of delivering
powerful 5-nines systems in a small footprint. In addition to the highest
linkset capacity in the industry, SEGway X401e's capacity includes 3000
SIGTRAN associations, Global Title Translation (GTT), and other powerful
features to seamlessly bridge traditional and IP signalling networks.

IP is the key to achieving the scalability and adaptability required for
today's leading edge signalling architecture. PT's product evolution has
consistently featured IP-based solutions that far surpass the telecom
industry's acceptable performance rates. Because SEGway's signalling
architecture is strategically designed around IP functionality, it has the
flexibility to scale, and to be equally efficient in a fully IP-based
environment, in NGN signalling networks, or while bridging to traditional
TDM-based networks.

"It's not enough to keep up with growth; we must stay far ahead of growth
in order to make our customers successful," said John Grana, Sr. VP, Products
and Technology of PT. "Building on an IP backbone allows PT to provide
scalable products and flexible value added features in their STPs such as
SIGTRAN connectivity, and IP-Edge solutions, along with Global Title
Translation and Point Code Emulation(TM)."
