ENEA Joins SCOPE Alliance

Enea (Nordic Exchange/Small Cap/ENEA), a world leading provider of network software and services, announced that it joined the SCOPE Alliance. The SCOPE Alliance, formed in January 2006 by Alcatel, Ericsson, Motorola, NEC, Nokia and Siemens, is an association of Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) working to accelerate the deployment of Carrier Grade Base Platforms (CGBP) for service provider applications. Its mission is to enable and promote the availability of open CGBP based on Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) hardware & software building blocks, and to promote interoperability to better serve service providers and consumers.

ENEA is working with the SCOPE Alliance team of leading NEPs and an exceptional group of COTS hardware and software providers to produce profiles for CGBPs intended to accelerate integration and deployment of next-generation networks. In addition, the SCOPE Alliance is producing gap analyses that address emerging interface specifications such as the Service Availability Forum’s Applications Interface Specifications (AIS) that are a critical in realizing a tightly-integrated set of CGBP building blocks.

“The output of the SCOPE Alliance will play a critical role in giving NEPs the confidence that their vision of leveraging COTS building blocks can be fully realized,” said Jim Lawrence, chief software standards officer at ENEA. “ENEA is looking forward to contributing to the work of the SCOPE Alliance.”

Enea is committed to delivering commercial, carrier-grade software platforms that help equipment providers deliver new services, quickly respond to evolving market demands and simultaneously reduce both capital and operating costs. It is currently applying the SCOPE profiles to the Enea Accelerator Platform(TM) which includes Enea’s Element(TM) high-availability middleware.

“The SCOPE Alliance is pleased to welcome Enea,” stated Magnus Karlson, chairman of the SCOPE Alliance. “The resources, experience, area expertise and perspective of Enea combined with our existing membership makes for a powerful combination that can generate timely results.”
