Arbinet-thexchange Plans Expansion and Enhancement of IP Services

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ--(Marketwire - June 5, 2008) - Arbinet-thexchange, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARBX), a leading transaction platform for buying and selling voice and IP telecommunications capacity, announced today that the company plans to expand the presence of its Internet Exchange Delivery Points (iEDP). During the third quarter of 2008, Arbinet will launch a new iEDP in Hong Kong. The company recently added an iEDP at 25 Broadway in New York, and expects to add more global iEDPs over the next two years.

This fall, Arbinet will deploy the latest version of its patented OptimizedIP service. This updated service will feature enhanced intelligent IP routing based on the measured quality of suppliers' individual routes. OptimizedIP provides significantly improved network performance by routing traffic based on near real-time quality metrics of jitter, latency and packet loss, rather than traditional "best effort" Internet routing. Members can take advantage of this technology by connecting to one of Arbinet's global iEDPs.

"As in our voice exchange business, there is increasing market demand to provide customers with more choices and greater flexibility to grow their businesses," said Curt Koeppen, chief marketing officer of Arbinet. "Arbinet's plans to expand and enhance our IP services are an important part of our strategic plan to grow our business. These scalable services enable our Members to focus on their primary services and increase the value of their businesses."

Arbinet's enhanced IP services offer service providers a "one-stop shop" for simplified IP supply management, reduced network infrastructure costs and optimized routing performance. Our efficient and flexible managed platform allows sellers to maximize revenue and increase profit margin. The Hong Kong iEDP will increase business opportunities for Members in the Asian Region, further demonstrating Arbinet's commitment to the Pacific Rim.
