Alteva to Exhibit at 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Chicago

Polycom to Sponsor Alteva's Unified Communications Channel Partner Sales Certification Training to Be Held in Conjunction With the Show

PHILADELPHIA, PA and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2011) - Alteva, a WVT Communications company (NASDAQ: WWVY), and Unified Communications (UC) solution provider headquartered in Philadelphia, today announced it will exhibit at the 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo, August 24-26th, in Chicago, IL (booth #1234). As the only networking and education event in the communications industry dedicated to the indirect sales channel, the Channel Partners Conference & Expo has tripled in size to more than 3,000 participants, providing exhibitors with a more diverse audience, more traffic and more exposure for their brands over the past decade.

Preceding the show, Alteva will hold its Level 1 UC Sales Certification training course, sponsored by Polycom, on August 22nd and 23rd, 9:00am - 4:30pm at The Chicago Firehouse restaurant, located at 1401 South Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60605. A major highlight of Alteva's recently relaunched Channel Partner Program, the three-tiered UC Sales Certification training includes a technical overview of UC, education programming on how to sell and position UC, and impact/reinforcement training led by the Sandler Institute, a world leader in innovative sales and sales management training.

"The Channel Partners Conference & Expo is an industry event for agents, VARs, systems integrators, interconnects and consultants, that focuses on how they can transform their business to become the next generation solution providers. Since the show's messaging is consistent with Alteva's, it was a no brainer to hold our UC training in conjunction with the show, especially since many of our partners will be in attendance," said Louis Hayner, chief sales officer of WVT and its wholly owned subsidiaries Alteva and USA Datanet. "We are excited to have Polycom on board as our sponsor and look forward to connecting with our partners and other channel partners at the show."

Alteva's UC Sales Certification training enhances the value of Alteva's master agents, agents and referral partners by helping them learn how to position Alteva's cloud-based UC solution -- which consists of hosted VoIP integrated with Microsoft Communication Services -- expand their offerings, boost revenues and increase market share.
