CommuniGate Systems and Cylogistics Join Forces to Deliver Turnkey VoIP/Data Applications and Billing Platform

Partnership Enables Carriers and Service Providers to Quickly and Cost-Effectively Enter VoIP Market and Roll Out High-Value Services

MILL VALLEY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 15, 2007 -- CommuniGate Systems, the leader in scalable carrier-class Rich Media Internet Communications solutions, today announced a partnership with the award-winning billing software provider, Cylogistics. Designed to address one of the key hurdles in deploying VoIP services today, the partnership gives carriers and service providers a turnkey solution that unifies VoIP, e-mail, messaging, and other rich Internet Communications applications, along with integrated billing support for these high-value services. Deployed together, the Cylogistics TrueBill and CommuniGate Pro platforms give carriers a complete, ready-to-deploy solution that accelerates time to market and reduces integration and deployment costs.

"As legacy billing systems do not support the latest VoIP and Rich Media Internet Communications applications, billing has been a significant challenge for many looking to deploy VoIP services," said Jon R. Doyle, Vice President of Business Development for CommuniGate Systems. "By partnering with Cylogistics, we can give our carrier customers a complete turnkey solution that can be deployed today. And Cylogistics' TrueBill represents the best of breed in billing platforms, providing the features and flexibility required to meet our customers' diverse business models, both today and tomorrow."

CommuniGate Pro Internet Communications Suite offers a carrier-class platform designed to open new revenue streams and improve subscriber loyalty with rich media services. CommuniGate Pro is the first real-time Internet Communications platform that gives carriers a single source for e-mail, collaboration, voice/video, and mobile Internet Communications. The platform's all-active Dynamic Clustering with SIP Farm allows carriers to support millions of subscriber accounts, while providing 99.999% uptime. By simply adding nodes to the Dynamic Cluster, carriers are able to effectively achieve unlimited scalability with industry-leading performance and QoS (Quality of Service).

Leveraging Cylogistics' award-winning TrueBill software, CommuniGate Pro customers benefit from an off-the-shelf, fully integrated billing solution that supports differentiated, higher margin services. The TrueBill billing platform supports a wide array of business models, including pre-paid, post-paid, real-time, multi-level, wholesale and credit card, while its unique tax module gives carriers a simple, cost-effective way to ensure tax compliancy with support for more than 17,000 tax municipalities -- federal, state and county. Flexible branding and customizable reporting options support the unique billing needs in today's VoIP market.

"We were impressed with CommuniGate's vision to combine telephony and rich media internet applications into a single unified platform," said Don Witt, President of Cylogistics. "While carriers have traditionally struggled with complex, multi-vendor application architectures, CommuniGate Pro gives carriers an unprecedented single solution for rolling out differentiated, high margin services.
