LiteScape to Feature Unified Communications Applications at INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO West 2006

Connecting Business Applications to IP Phones and Mobile Devices Solves Top and Bottom Line Problems for Organizations Around the World

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 9, 2006 -- LiteScape Technologies (www.litescape.com) today announced it will be showcasing the latest version of its unified communications applications on Cisco and Avaya IP phones at TMC™'s INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO West 2006, October 10-13, 2006 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California (www.itexpo.com). LiteScape's unified communication solutions bridge the connection between existing enterprise communication infrastructure, such as PBX or IP-PBX, and IP phones from vendors including Cisco, Avaya, Nortel, Asterisk, Siemens and Nokia, with hosted or deployed collaboration products, such as Microsoft Live Communication Server, WebEx, IBM SameTime, MS LiveMeeting and MS Exchange.

INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO is the premier global event for showcasing leading cost-saving and cutting-edge IP Communications products and services.

"I have followed LiteScape's development this past year and have seen how applications like theirs are driving the adoption of unified communications that will change the way companies do business," said Rich Tehrani, TMC President. "The evolution in this industry has been monumental and it still continues to grow. We are proud to have LiteScape and its applications as a key part of this year's INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO."

LiteScape applications enhance the value of IP-based networks enabling unified communications with security and personalization for collaboration and converged CRM solutions. The company's products include OnCast™ for collaboration, LiteScape ServicePoint™ for industry-specific converged CRM and Secure Profile Management™ (SPM), and the Secure Personal Authentication Reader or SPAR™ device for multiple access points for identity management.

"Very few enterprises are run strictly on a single platform," said Rod Hamlin, LiteScape's executive vice president of sales and marketing. "For example, an international retail management company needed an agnostic integration solution to tie together their IP PBX and traditional PBXs in three different continents and we were able to give them secure, cross cluster directory access. Dozens of companies across many vertical industries are relying on LiteScape solutions to take advantage of their investments in various IP hardware and technologies."

Integration with Microsoft LCS provides a PBX neutral gateway which functions as a remote call control agent for secure, unified communications. LiteScape applications include presence aware accept / place / monitor / conference and call-deflect features to non-IP devices such as mobile phones. By integrating MS-LCS with WebEx and Live-Meeting, OnCast synchronizes the identity of phone users with that of desktop users and provides merged identification for participants in multi-party collaboration sessions.
