Open Source Requires Back-Office Support, Says Transverse

By PRESS RELEASE — September 07, 2008

Transverse Debuts with Telecom's First Open Source OSS Platform
Will Unveil New Platform for the Back Office at CTIA Wireless I.T. & Entertainment Show in San Francisco and OSIM Conference in Berlin
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)-- Transverse, a pioneer of open source business solutions, is the first company to extend the true promise of open source computing to telecom operational support systems (OSS) -- better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to vendor lock-in.

Legacy systems and proprietary vendor relationships are currently preventing service providers from integrating new revenue streams into existing billing systems, which would allow service providers to increase profitability and deepen customer relationships.

Transverse is taking advantage of new technology innovations and the most advanced open source projects to make complex back office support systems more flexible and adaptable to changing business needs.

Conceived by an experienced group of industry-leading telecom and technology industry professionals, Transverse has developed and deployed a new model for delivering complex back office support systems. Transverse's business model centers around the design, deployment and support services required to install its platform.

"It's not a question of whether or not open source software will dominate the telecom back office, it is a question of when. Open source is about the freedom to select and use software without proprietary barriers," said Jim Messer, president and chief executive officer at Transverse. "The benefits of open source software don't end at the handset with platforms like Android and LiMo. We have a world-class group of experienced OSS professionals who are committed to breaking down proprietary barriers for communications service providers, offering complete application agility, lower costs, choice and innovation. This is open source and this is Transverse."
