The article reports on the expansion of the SEGway x401 signalling platform of innovative communications solutions provider Performance Technologies Inc. to 1500 links. The move increases the platform's throughput to 180,000 transactions per second and made it the largest capacity signalling solution available in a single carrier grade 12U chassis. The expansion was aimed at addressing the need to increase throughput amidst decreasing average revenue per user (ARPU). According to Patt Rice, vice president and general manager of Performance Technologies' Signalling Products, SEGway x401 is a high capacity, low cost network which can be used by large wireless carriers.
