Nectar Tells Nortel Customers to "Leave Their Gear Alone"

Nectar Provides Attractive Alternative to Rip and Replace Mentality

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 23, 2009) - Nectar Services Corp., an IP communications services provider and wholly owned subsidiary of Juma Technology Corp. (OTCBB: JUMT), today announced a unique campaign for Nortel customers. The new program features a going-forward strategy to maximize existing Nortel equipment while delivering telecommunications cost savings today.

The initiative, dubbed as the "anti-buy back program," leverages the Nectar Enterprise Session Management (nectar/ESM) platform to breath life into existing Nortel systems, deliver immediate cost savings and institute a vendor agnostic transition strategy.

"There has been a tremendous amount of attention focused on the fate of Nortel and their customers," said Joseph T. Fuccillo, Chief Technology Officer for Nectar. "In response, manufacturers have launched incentives to buy back and replace a customer's Nortel equipment. But for many companies, that's just not a realistic approach," said Fuccillo.

According to Fuccillo, Nortel customers are more likely to embrace a strategy that incorporates their existing Nortel equipment.

"Simply put, we can reduce a company's telecommunications expenses without costly upgrades, and we can future proof their architecture by instituting a transition strategy that isn't manufacturer-based."

Fuccillo noted that in this economy, the "rip and replace" mentality is just not selling. "No company is going to scrap a system that's fairly new or replace older units that are working just fine. However, companies do need to look at their options going-forward, and that's where Nectar comes in as the perfect transition solution."

Anthony M. Servidio, Chief Executive Officer of parent company Juma Technology, underscored the "enormous cost savings" associated with the solution.

"The nectar/ESM platform is an incredible solution that provides clients with immediate savings. In this economic environment, companies of all sizes are being mandated to lower operating expenses and cut costs, which is exactly what nectar/ESM delivers," said Servidio.

The nectar/ESM platform

With nectar/ESM, companies benefit from carrier-class routing and session management functionality that is completely vendor agnostic. A signaling trunk is created to nectar/ESM which enables PBXs to peer automatically to gain the full benefits of an all IP architecture.
