Rodopi Software Joins FastLign Alliance

Rodopi Supports Innovative New Model for Introduction of VoIP Services

SAN DIEGO, CA, September 20, 2005 - Rodopi Software, an industry leader in new generation operations systems and software (OSS) and back office automation software, today announced its participation in FastLign, an industry alliance working to accelerate the adoption of IP telephony services. In addition to Rodopi, core members of the FastLign Alliance include Level3, NexTone, Lignup, tekVizion, CentricVoice and VoIPLogic. Through the FastLign Alliance, the companies will enable service providers to rapidly and cost effectively deliver hosted telephony services, which previously have been prohibitively time consuming and expensive to build, deploy, and manage.

Rodopi’ s fully web-based provisioning, billing, and customer care applications will be pre-integrated in the reference architecture of FastLign, giving service providers a turn-key go-to-market platform for advanced voice over IP (VoIP) applications. The presence of a managed services operator, and access to Level3’s advanced network services, will further eliminate barriers between service conception and market introduction.

“The selection and integration of an operations support system (OSS) is a significant hurdle for a service provider launching a new service,” said Kevin Nethercott, president of Lignup Corporation. “Pre-integrating and pre-configuring Rodopi into FastLign will provide customers with a state-of-the-art automation platform without the cost and risk associated with traditional OSS approaches.”

“FastLign presents a unique model for VoIP service providers, which takes them beyond reselling into an asset based infrastructure that can be evolved,” said Todd Benjamin, president and CEO of Rodopi. “Rodopi’s business template approach will further accelerate the introduction of services by providing a default set of services, packages, and business rules which the service provider can use as-is or customize to its particular business model.”
