RHUB Launches Channel Program for Web Conferencing Solutions in Asia

Signs Strategic Alliance With Technology Link Corporation

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 15, 2007) - RHUB Communications, Inc. (RHUB), a premier provider of Web conferencing solutions focusing on ease-of-use, affordability, security, and reliability, announced the launch of its channel program in Asia through a strategic alliance with Technology Link Corporation (TLC) of Japan. Under the terms and conditions of the agreement, TLC will offer RHUB's on-premise TurboMeeting appliances, pre-configured with the Company's proprietary TurboMeeting software, for a standalone solution that combines key Web conferencing applications in one package. The alliance includes the development of a Japanese language version of TurboMeeting, which is scheduled for availability in January 2008.

"Our partnership with Technology Link is an important strategic move towards penetrating the Asian market," said Larry Dorie, CEO of RHUB Communications. "The Asia-Pacific region represents an enormous untapped market for Web conferencing products and services. According to analyst research, 25% of that market is for on-premise solutions, which are RHUB's specialty."

TurboMeeting elevates Web conferencing by its unique ability to support both fully interactive and view only attendees in the same meeting, between PC and Mac. With TurboMeeting, users can share information from one computer or among many. Users can also remotely control and support other computers and access one computer from another. TurboMeeting applications include:

--  Web Conferencing: Web-based interactive meetings
--  Remote Support: with remote reboot capability
--  Remote Access: remote access to computers at home or office from
    anywhere, anytime
--  Web Seminars: non-download results in quick (in seconds), easy (URL
    only) and the most reliable way for large groups of attendees to join
    meetings
    

"Web conferencing is increasingly viewed by more enterprises as an integral part of their communications infrastructure, but every business has its own unique requirements for real-time collaboration," said David Coleman, Founder and Managing Director of Collaborative Strategies. "RHUB's TurboMeeting extends real-time collaboration beyond conventional Web conferencing solutions by combining multiple collaborative functions to help satisfy Web conferencing requirements for a wide range of users, from small businesses to global enterprises."

"We are excited about the opportunity to introduce a full-featured Web conferencing appliance to the Asian market," said Joji Tone, President of Technology Link Corporation. "We evaluated many different solutions, and selected RHUB's TurboMeeting because it offers many advantageous features such as remote support, remote seminars, and remote PC access."

RHUB's on-premise TurboMeeting Web conferencing appliances are available in capacities that serve SMBs to global enterprises, and come with a one-year warranty for hardware and software. After the first year, an extended warranty at 20% of the retail price per year is available. Product updates are performed automatically, and add-on licenses are distributed via the Web.
