OpenClovis Solutions, Inc., provider of the premier open-standards-based, commercial off the shelf (COTS) middleware software, is proud to announce the availability of SAFPlus Platform, the company’s flagship middleware software product. SAFPlus middleware is compliant with Service Availability Forum (SAF) specifications, but also offers functionality not specified in SAF. The SAFPlus product is already in use by Mobile Equipment Manufacturers, Internet Equipment Manufacturers, Defense/Aerospace Equipment Manufacturers and Cloud Equipment Manufacturers. There are already thousands of SAFPlus deployments worldwide in various types of devices.

SAFPlus products offer a significant advantage over developing the same functionality in-house. OpenClovis customers can achieve their deployment goals much faster using SAFPlus products with minimum upfront investment. OpenClovis offers various business models to minimize development and integration cost. In general, the SAFPlus products can be integrated with underlying Operating Systems (OS) and hardware within few weeks – a task that used to take years assuming full development of the middleware itself.

“Small cells, such as our award winning nano3G® access points, are much smaller and more cost effective than traditional base stations, but have the same system and network requirements for High Availability and System Management,” said Nick Johnson, CTO of ip.access. “The OpenClovis best in class software added proven High Availability to our Gateway products, helping us achieve carrier grade availability compliant to the SAF standard, and achieve our goal of world's largest small cell deployment."
