OpenClovis, Inc., provider of the premier open source, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) application service platform for the telecommunications industry, announced that the company ended calendar year 2006 on a triumphant note with more than 200 percent revenue growth over the previous year.
“Our 2006 performance, as measured by revenues, customer design wins and partnerships, exceeded every one of our targets,” said V.K. Budhraja, CEO, OpenClovis. “The introduction of the open source business model has been a tremendous success as experienced by our customers and partners, with more than 3,500 downloads of OpenClovis Application Service Platform and more than 700 registrants in the open source community. The phenomenal success of the open source model has been realized by customers, partners and the industry at large.”
During 2006, the company launched with a new name, OpenClovis, and an open source business model with the OpenClovis Software Project, which made available more than 500,000 lines of its robust high availability and manageability code to the open source community. As an extension of its open source initiative, the company launched ClovisForge, an open source project that provides the high availability and carrier grade capabilities required by the telecommunications industry to popular open source enterprise and telecommunications applications.
OpenClovis also introduced new versions of its commercial products, OpenClovis Application Service Platform and OpenClovis Integrated Development Environment, which are sold and supported under the dual GPL open source and commercial license model. The company captured several customer design wins and projects, including Mercury Computer (digital signal and image processing systems), Airvana (3G mobile broadband architecture) and QUAD (broadband quadruple play service delivery), and expanded partnerships with several leading telecommunications solution vendors such as RadiSys and Wind River.
