Sonus Networks and ip.access Make One Number, One Voicemail, One Call A Reality At CTIA 2008

Westford, MA., and Las Vegas, NV., April 1, 2008– Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), the market leader in IP voice infrastructure, and ip.access, the market leader in femtocell and picocell infrastructure solutions are answering the demands of mobile subscribers for an integrated approach to voice communication, opening up new revenue opportunities for both mobile and wireline operators through fixed mobile convergence.

At CTIA 2008, Sonus Networks and ip.accesswill be demonstrating a complete broadband mobile convergence solution that combines the Sonus mobilEdge™ Wireless Access Node with ip.access’ Oyster 3G™ femtocells and nanoGSM® 2G picocells. The solution integrates cellphones into enterprise communications systems for business customers, and supports innovative “connected home” features for home users.  The complete network will be shown live at this year’s CTIA conference in Las Vegas, USA, Booth #3439.  Visitors to Sonus Networks’ booth will experience first-hand wireless calls through ip.access picocells and femtocells via the mobilEdge SIP/IP core network, including Find-Me-Follow-Me and Extension Dialing services for enterprise picocell applications.

“We now offer a complete solution that allows users to experience a new level of communication services. By leveraging existing broadband, carriers can supply high capacity bandwidth services, realizing the promise of triple play services onto the wireless handset,” said Vikram Saksena, chief technology officer, Sonus Networks. “Together with ip.access, we are helping network operators streamline the delivery of advanced multimedia services, providing an improved communication experience for enterprise customers.”

“A robust wireless network requires the seamless interoperability of carrier-class, high performance solutions,” said Stephen Mallinson, CEO of ip.access.  “By integrating Sonus’ mobilEdge Wireless Access Node with our Oyster 3G and nanoGSM indoor radio solutions, we can provide network operators with a fully distributed network architecture that delivers valuable new services to existing handsets.”

Sonus Networks and ip.access have partnered in order to ensure that their technology is integrated and interoperable. By deploying the complete, standards-based network solution, mobile operators can now offer residential and business customers the full power of indoor mobile coverage over existing handset and broadband connections, seamless handover to the macro-mobile network, and a complete suite of residential or business value added services.

“This solution blends fixed and mobile services into a seamless experience for the end user. Wireless carriers can now offer fully integrated services to business users as well as unlimited long distance wireless services to residential users. We are taking the guesswork involved with interoperability out of the equation,” concluded Saksena.

The solution is available to customers today.  More information is available at www,sonusnet.com and www.ipaccess.com.
