NET to Showcase Next Generation Product Families at Upcoming Interop Show in Las Vegas

NET's VoIP Switching Gateways, High-Speed Switches and Multi-Service Access Platforms Are Designed to Simplify Network Migration

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2008) - Network Equipment Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: NWK), a global provider of multi-service network and VoIP solutions for government and enterprise customers, announced today that it will showcase its line of NET VX Series and Quintum Tenor VoIP switching gateways, along with its NX Series high bandwidth multi-protocol switches, at the upcoming Interop show in Las Vegas. NET will be displaying its product lines in Booth #2813 at the Mandalay Bay hotel and Casino on April 29th, 30th and May 1st.

The NET VX Series advanced VoIP switching gateway offers "Any-to-Any" voice switching (SIP to SIP, TDM to TDM and SIP to TDM) to simplify VoIP network integration. The VX Series offers capabilities not typically found in traditional gateways, such as advanced call security, an integrated Session Border Controller, and remote office survivability, making the VX Series an ideal enterprise VoIP switch for high performance unified communications applications.

Quintum's Tenor VoIP MultiPath switch product line will also be on display. The Tenor offers a Unified Communications Proxy, which also supports "Any-to-Any" VoIP switching. Tenors are noted for their breadth of VoIP enterprise gateway options and configurations, supporting from 2 analog FXS/FXO ports up to 32 T1/E1/PRI spans. Both the NET VX Series and Quintum Tenor are certified by Microsoft to be interoperable with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and NET and Quintum have achieved Microsoft Gold Partner certification.

NET's NX Series high bandwidth switching solutions will also be shown. The NX Series has been enhanced to extend InfiniBand fabrics over thousands of kilometers to provide multi-Gigabit connectivity between geographically dispersed servers and storage. These easy-to-manage, small-footprint systems significantly outperform TCP/IP-based alternatives in terms of bandwidth scalability and low latency -- enabling the real-time data synchronization, backup, and disaster recovery required for building virtual clusters across large distances.

"NET is addressing some of the challenges faced in deploying some of today's most advanced networks," says Chuck Rutledge, VP of Corporate Marketing for NET. "The NET VX Series and Quintum Tenors are addressing the needs of companies that want to deploy new VoIP and unified communications applications while leveraging their existing voice network. The NET NX Series is supporting customers' needs to build larger, more complex high bandwidth virtual computing and storage clusters."
