Iwatsu Voice Networks Awarded "Best of Show" at INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO West 2006 in San Diego

Enterprise-VS Version 3.0 Singled Out for Innovation and Quality at Record-Setting VoIP Event

IRVING, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2006 -- Iwatsu Voice Networks (IVN) announced today that its Enterprise-CS V3.0 has been named a winner of a "Best of Show Award" at Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC®)'s INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference and EXPO West 2006. TMC reports that the conference was attended by over 6,400 people last month at the San Diego, California Convention Center.

When deployed with Esnatech's Enterprise TOL 7.0, Iwatsu's 3.0 platform allows the Enterprise-CS system to integrate with voicemail via SIP (Session Initiated Protocol). By using this burgeoning protocol to connect the system with its voicemail server, the need for analog and Dialogic cards has been eliminated. This advancement alone will save end users a significant investment in hardware.

"We're thrilled to release the new upgrade," said Kevin Kelleher, Executive Vice President of Iwatsu Voice Networks. "The Enterprise-CS version 3.0 enables some high-end presence mobility features normally out of the reach of most SMB. By utilizing SIP integration we're able to leverage technology to work for us to lower the cost of the solution."

"Iwatsu Voice Networks and their innovative Enterprise-CS V3.0 platform are a standout indication of why so many service providers, enterprise buyers, developers, and resellers descend upon INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & Expo twice a year," said TMC President and Conference Chairman Rich Tehrani. "The presence of outstanding companies like Iwatsu Voice Networks further demonstrates INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO's status as the leading forum for the VoIP and IP communications industry. Attendees know they'll find solutions in the Iwatsu booth that can help them in their businesses today."

The INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO Best of Show Award recognizes innovative products and solutions that were featured in the Exhibit Hall during the event. This designation serves to highlight the technological achievement and creative product features that set these winners apart from the rest of the crowd. INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine editorial staff met with vendors to inspect and review the displayed products over the course of the three-day event.

A full list of the winners is posted on TMC's Web site at www.tmcnet.com.

The next INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO will take place January 23-26, 2007 at the Ft. Lauderdale -- Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. For information, visit www.itexpo.com or call (203) 852-6800 ext. 146.
