Patent No. 7,024,470 which covers methods for setting up user self-activating network-based services; and Patent No. 7,134,013 which covers methods for setting up network-based services.
The patent strengthens Atreus’ intellectual property portfolio and provides the company with ownership of key innovations that address powerful new capabilities designed to meet the stringent performance and scalability requirements of the world’s largest carriers. The issued U.S. patent titled, "Systems and Method for Setting Up User Self-Activating Network-based Services" and “Policy Distribution Point for Setting Up Network-based Services”, builds on Atreus’ unique provisioning and activation solution, which empowers service providers to streamline the complex processes required to provision any subscriber-based IP service—from Hosted PBX and Unified Messaging to fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) and collaborative business applications.
“Service providers are dealing with the twin challenges of mounting competition and increased operational complexity as they strive to offer high-value services to their customers,” said Doug Bellinger, chief technology officer at Atreus Systems. “Atreus’ ongoing commitment to innovation helps carriers respond quickly to market pressures and gives them the sophisticated operational and business capabilities they need to deliver converged service bundles.”
