Octasic Announces First Customer Delivery of Vocallo Chips

Sangoma to Design Accelerator Card Targeted at PC-Based Telephony

MONTREAL--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - Octasic Inc., a leading innovator of media processing solutions, today announced that it has begun sampling its Vocallo multi-core gateway DSP platform, which provides unparalleled value for voice and video over IP applications.

Vocallo, based on Octasic's unique asynchronous Opus DSP core architecture, offers the highest performance-to-power ratio in the industry. Coupled with Octasic's pristine voice and video quality, developers can significantly reduce their system cost while enhancing total solution quality. (See related release on new Vocallo video software.) Vocallo's flexible architecture allows media gateway designers to not only match an offering to their specific requirements, but to enhance that offering and create a host of new products from a single product development.

"We worked closely with our customers to design a platform on which they can develop the new generation of media gateway and enterprise IP communication servers," said Frédéric Bourget, Octasic's director of product management. "We are now seeing intense interest from developers who require a complete, cost-effective solution that meets their product design challenges."

Sangoma Technologies (TSX-V: STC) has chosen Vocallo to develop an accelerator card targeted at PC based telephony.

"We are excited to use Vocallo in our next generation products," said David Mandelstam of Sangoma Technologies Corporation. "Octasic has always delivered superior quality products, with unmatched performance and power. Vocallo will allow us to expand our business into new markets."
