IP5280 Communications First to Bring High Definition Phone Service to Colorado Businesses

Survey Reveals Nine Out of 10 Business Users Choose HD Voice for Clarity and Quality Over Traditional Phone Service

ENGLEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - March 3, 2008) - IP5280 Communications, Colorado's business VoIP specialists, announced today the launch of HD Voice, a high definition phone service that offers business users twice the voice clarity, greater noise reduction and more vibrant, life-like conversations than traditional phone service. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) hosted phone services are widely recognized for their feature capabilities and cost savings over the traditional phone company, and now the introduction of HD Voice offers superior call quality as compared to standard telephony.

"IP5280's VoIP service has improved the number of phone features for business users and reduced the costs compared to the old phone company, and now IP5280 is the first to bring high definition phone service to Colorado small and medium-sized businesses," said Jeffrey Pearl, managing partner and co-founder of IP5280. "The increased intelligibility of IP5280 HD Voice enables more natural conversations, which boosts recognition and can help enhance productivity."

The IP5280 HD Voice service uses phones developed by IP-phone maker Polycom. These phones contain a technology unique to Polycom called Polycom HD Voice™ that when combined with IP5280's high definition phone service, enables a new level of call clarity, particularly when calling from an HD phone to another HD phone. HD phones reproduce the subtle inflections and nuances of speech that people use everyday to communicate meaning and emotion in their conversations.

In a survey ( conducted by IP5280 in January and February 2008, more than 95 percent of 200 Colorado business users from Denver, Ft. Collins and Summit County expressed overwhelming enthusiasm for the clarity and voice quality of IP5280's HD Voice when comparing the new HD technology in a side-by-side call quality test to traditional phone service.

"The sound quality of IP5280's HD Voice is incredible. We can hear better, my clients respond faster, and our conversations with customers are shorter, all which makes us more productive," said IP5280 customer Karl Johnson, president and CEO of Escendo Corp., a Littleton-based company that provides analytical business solutions to Fortune 1000 companies. "I work with businesses overseas on a daily basis and the clarity of the HD phone really helps in situations where English is not a first language."

Advanced features include sending voicemail to an email inbox, simultaneous ring on multiple phones, automatic logging of calls, auto attendant call greetings and routing, and traditional features such as three-way and conference calling.
