Aylus Networks Inc. was founded in 2005, just as smartphones started revolutionizing the way we communicate and mobile communications began moving toward complex multimedia solutions that include video as well as voice, text, pictures and other rich media. To meet the needs of this rapidly changing landscape, Aylus created the Aylus Platform, an innovative media switch and processing infrastructure that enables communication providers to make live video and other rich media an integral part of the communication session.

Aylus' unique, innovative technology platform enables mobile operators and communication service providers to gain a competitive edge in a market being challenged by new disruptive participants. In the wireless market today, phenomena such as social networking, video sharing and blogging, and multimedia telephony are driving a huge appetite for rich communication services in both the business and consumer environments. Aylus is transforming the way mobile operators and other communication service providers are able to offer these services to their customers. With new media-oriented services that reach beyond simple voice and data, service providers can create new revenue streams and addressable markets, delivering high-quality live video and multimedia communication experiences to consumers and enterprises wherever they are. Aylus is a private, venture-backed company headquartered in Westford, MA, with additional R&D and sales centers worldwide. Aylus' founder, Shamim Naqvi, has been a pioneer in computing and communications systems; his early work on VoIP, Softswitch technology and Cellular Push-to-Talk solutions helped create the mobile communications market we have today.

Aylus' executive team brings extensive communication industry expertise from Bell Labs, Cingular, Comverse, Lucent, Mformation, Microsoft, Oracle, Psion, Symbian, Tellabs, Winphoria and others.
