Iperia Named to the 2007 "Pulver 100"

Record-Breaking 2006 Performance in Exploding Voice-Over-IP Market Helps Secure Pulver 100 Ranking

BEVERLY, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2007 -- In the dynamic Voice-Over-IP industry, the players change as fast as the technology does. But one company, touting the tagline "Always here," has become the closest thing to a constant this industry sees on an annual basis.

Iperia announced it's been named to the 2007 "Pulver 100" -- the IP Communications industry's premier listing of privately held growth companies representing the future of the IP-voice and video communications ecosystem. Iperia credits this honor to its award-winning ActivEdge™ and IperiaVX™ communications products; enhanced relationships with channel partners; and an unwavering focus on exceptional customer service, technical expertise, and inventive problem-solving capabilities.

"The Pulver 100 celebrates the leading edge in IP communications," said Jeff Pulver, Founder and Chairman of Pulvermedia. "Because of Iperia's significant growth in 2006, and their support of companies with rapidly evolving communication needs, we're proud to include Iperia in this year's Pulver 100. Iperia continues to enhance IP communications with service creation platform solutions for service providers and the enterprise market."

Setting a new standard for voice-enabled applications

With the IperiaVX platform, Iperia creates a new standard for collaborative business services. "It's about connecting people with the information they want, at the exact moment they need it, wherever they are," said David Jodoin, CEO of Iperia. "Any industry with a highly distributed workforce -- finance, trucking, real estate, insurance -- will boost its profits through the efficiencies provided by IperiaVX."

"And service providers who offer IperiaVX to their customers will add an entirely new revenue source to their bottom line, while reducing churn at the same time. It's been in development for nearly two years, and we're thrilled to introduce it to the passionate VoIP user community," added Jodoin.

Jodoin and his Iperia teammates will soon join Pulver and other top IP industry thinkers and performers at Spring 2007 VON. The global IP communications event, attended by service providers, equipment manufacturers, and enterprise decision makers, opens in San Jose, CA on March 19th, 2007.

At booth #127, Iperia will celebrate the official release of its hotly anticipated VX platform. With its focus on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), IperiaVX easily integrates new and existing communications applications into a single, voice-enabled framework. The intuitive portal environment, designed for use with IBM's WebSphere and BEA's WebLogic, offers efficient, flexible, and scaleable Web Services for service providers and enterprise-level businesses.
