PointOne Launches Portal for Automated DID Provisioning

Wholesale and Reseller Customers to Avoid Delays and Cost of Phone Number Management

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 9, 2005 -- PointOne today announced it will provide a portal for automated selection and automation of direct inward dial (DID) phone numbers to wholesale customers and distributors of its VoIP services. The new service will eliminate the delays and the cost of manual provisioning of DIDs. It allows for rapid service integration and supports all PointOne products that require DID assignment.

Service providers will be able to utilize PointOne's portal to acquire and activate phone numbers coast-to-coast on an as-needed basis. Automated provisioning reduces manual processes that delay service activation and frustrate eager customers waiting for phone service. Utilizing PointOne's network and features, service providers will be able to eliminate the quandary of managing DID inventories, which often results in either inefficient stockpiling or lack of inventory to meet demand.

"Manual DID provisioning is about as efficient as the carrier pigeon in this era of enhanced network services," said Sam Shiffman, EVP of PointOne. "Service providers can expand their customer base more rapidly at reduced cost by taking advantage of our advanced network and automated provisioning."

The company also offers StarPoint IP residential and SOHO turnkey VoIP solutions through independent cable companies and ISPs to deliver superior and reliable high-quality voice and data services.
