NET Quintum's® Tenor DXi VoIP Gateway Card Integrated With an Intel-Based Converged Application Platform Offers ISVs a Powerful VoIP Appliance

The Tenor DXi Provides VoIP Without Impacting the Appliance Processor Utilization

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - November 11, 2008) - Network Equipment Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: NWK), a leading innovator in VoIP technologies, announced today that they are showcasing their Quintum Tenor DXi card with a Converged Application Platform based on the Intel® Celeron® M Processor 370 operating at 1.5 GHz. The solution is being featured in San Francisco at the VoiceCon show.

The Converged Application Platform allows application developers and Independent Software Vendors (ISV) to quickly offer a variety of applications, such as Unified Communications, and IP PBXs on a single appliance platform, and can run either Linux or Windows-based applications with an integrated VoIP capability. The Tenor DXi operates independently of the application processor, thus allowing all of the processor resources to be dedicated to the application, thus improving both efficiency and reliability.

The Tenor DXi Integrated VoIP Gateway supports up to 2 T1/E1/PRI spans and up to 60 simultaneous VoIP calls. It is built as a full length PCI Express x1 Adapter Card and integrates all of the features and functions of the rest of the digital Tenor product line of VoIP switches and gateways.

"As more companies are focused on developing communications-based software applications, they are looking for powerful, yet cost-effective platforms to deliver their solutions," said Chuck Rutledge, Vice President of Marketing for NET. "The combination of the Converged Application Platform and the Tenor DXi VoIP card provides a powerful convergence appliance."

"Intel's Celeron-based platform enables third-party application development, integration and delivery," said Bill Tiso, director and principal engineer for Market Development, Embedded and Communications Group, Intel Corporation. "When combined with the Intel Celeron M processor, gateway solutions -- such as Quintum's Tenor DXi VoIP Gateway Card -- address SMB and distributed enterprise requirements for a number of simultaneous VoIP calls."

The Tenor DXi VoIP card will be exhibited in Intel's booth (#429) in the Moscone Center. People interested in seeing the demo can contact Quintum at: info@quintum.com.
