Adomo Connects Asterisk Open Source and Microsoft Exchange

New Combination Gives Mobile Services Professionals Cutting Edge Unified Voice Messaging

CUPERTINO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 17, 2007 -- Adomo Inc., the leader in next generation voice messaging and mobile unified communications solutions, announced the successful implementation of its solution with Asterisk IP PBX from Digium. Now integrating an open source IP PBX with Microsoft Exchange, Adomo is uniquely able to consolidate a company's voice and e-mail into a single messaging network. This combination provides ongoing reductions in overall total cost of ownership (TCO) to companies when they consolidate voice requirements into a single IP network.

"Adomo's new integration with Asterisk both illustrates and promotes an emerging model effecting widespread demand for and adoption of open source with its adaptability and economics," said Stephen Manetta, VP of Sales and Marketing of DigiNex, a service provider of Asterisk from Digium. "Our Asterisk IP-PBX customers now have Adomo to seamlessly consolidate their company's voice messaging and management with Microsoft Outlook."

In action, "Open Source Asterisk with Adomo has moved our company from a 90's style voice messaging system to a 21st century unified communications platform. The Adomo platform has changed the way we do business and communicate with both internal and external constituents," said Bill Ciminelli, Vice President, Network Development & Services of American Fiber Systems, Inc. "Adomo especially impacts our mobile users who previously had to separately manage messages on laptops, office computers, office phones and cell phones. With the addition of Adomo, the four messaging points have been collapsed into one, with the e-mail inbox serving as the single repository for all messages."

Advances in IP telephony and Unified Communications (UC) are driving significant change across the communications landscape. IT departments are now faced with managing voice as well as data, and Open Source telephony, particularly Asterisk, is driving a new level in communications pricing models. Small to mid-size businesses are attracted to the economy of an open source solution, while enterprises that demand broad choice, ease of customization, and flexibility find open source compelling. Adomo bridges the gap that exists for most IT departments between an established Microsoft based data network and integration with open source Asterisk telephony. Because of non-disruptive integration with Microsoft Exchange and Asterisk, Adomo dramatically reduces the IT management and support overhead required of other unified messaging solutions. For company employees, Adomo enables users to interact with their voice messages in the same inbox they use for e-mail in the office or while mobile.

Adomo's solution for open source Asterisk is available now. Interested parties may contact Adomo (www.adomo.com) for more information.
