MOSCOW, October 28 /PRNewswire/ -- RAD Data Communications is introducing the company's end-to-end SIP VoIP System at the Israeli High-Tech Companies Telco Road Show in Russia, organized by IBM's Global Technology Unit (GTU).

The event will be held in Moscow October 28 and 29. The first day will be an internal business session with IBM Russia, while the second day will be a business session with Russian customers. Seven companies have been selected to participate.

At the event, the General Manager of RAD Russia, Vasily Grudev, and the company's Senior Sales Manager, Shimon Mezi, will introduce participants to RVS, RAD's end-to-end SIP VoIP System. Designed for service providers, RVS enables a rapid rollout of VoIP services to business and residential customers with a low initial investment for generating fast return on investment (ROI). Subscribers benefit from cost-cutting IP telephony without having to replace existing telephony equipment. A highly scalable solution, RVS enables providers of all sizes to start with a small subscriber base and pay-as-you-grow.

Ensures Low Total Cost of Ownership

Engineered for superior voice quality and call integrity, RVS is comprised of RAD's Class 5 SIP softswitch, with built-in provisioning and management, and customer premises VoIP gateways. A unique intelligent central management and provisioning system keeps operating expenses (Opex) to a minimum, ensuring a low total cost of ownership (TCO).

Interoperable with IBM Equipment

RAD's RVS is completely compatible with IBM equipment, states Mezi. RAD has an established track record of interoperability with IBM, he adds. RADview-EMS, for example, RAD's carrier-class, modular, client-server, scalable element management system, has been validated as Ready for IBM Tivoli Software, Mezi notes. This validation is an indication that RADview-EMS is integrated with IBM's Tivoli Netcool(R)/OMNIbus(TM) software, which delivers real-time, centralized monitoring of complex networks and IT domains.

IBM established GTU in Israel at the end of 2001 as a corporate initiative to promote worldwide business for IBM with Israeli-based technology companies. Since that time GTU has established itself as the crossroads between IBM and the Israeli high-tech industry, enabling Israel-based high-tech companies interested in conducting business and cooperating with IBM worldwide to receive local support together with international sales assistance.

At the same time, GTU has become recognized within IBM as the driver behind new worldwide opportunities for IBM with the Israeli high-tech sector. GTU's mission is to evaluate and develop a new generation of partners for IBM whose innovative solutions incorporate IBM products and services, thus ensuring a strong value proposition for both IBM and the partner in joint sales initiatives.
