Salient Networks Selects Voice Mobility for Their Customer's Unified Communications Requirements

Voice Mobility the Best Solution for Supporting Customer's Large Scale Requirements

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 30, 2009) - Voice Mobility International, Inc. (TSX:VMY)(OTCBB:VMII)(FRANKFURT:VMY), a Vancouver-based developer and provider of carrier and enterprise unified communication solutions, today announced that its certified partner, Salient Networks of Carlsbad California, a major reseller of Avaya® and Cisco® solutions has selected Voice Mobility's Vmerge Unified Communication solution as a best in class platform for its nationwide base of messaging customers.

"Salient Networks was one of the first VMX / Octel business partners and systems integrators in the western United States," said Mac Clarke, President and CEO of Salient Networks. "We are a recognized specialist in the voice messaging industry. We have experienced our fair share of unified communication messaging solutions, but few, if any that rival the product line from Voice Mobility".

Voice Mobility offers solutions developed for Linux and Windows environments that scale readily to 1.5M users and over 6000 ports. Originally developed for the central office and hosted/managed care environments, the UCN 250 is a perfect replacement solution for legacy Avaya Octel® servers. The Vmerge Windows based solution represents the perfect solution for those companies that desire next generation functionality like presence, instant messaging, computer telephony interface, speech recognition and auto attendant without the need to upgrade to Microsoft® LCS IBM® Sametime environments.

"When we identified Voice Mobility's solutions could provide a comprehensive unified communication messaging solution in a fully redundant, centralized configuration, we knew that Voice Mobility was the best solution for supporting our customer's requirements for legacy voicemail replacement, site consolidation and unified communication applications" noted Murphy Clarke, Salient Networks VP of Sales.

Recently one of Salient's largest customers issued a request for proposal (RFP) to replace their Octel® 250/350 and Cisco Unity® voice messaging systems in over 70 locations. Their goal was to flatten and consolidate the existing systems and bring all their messaging traffic back to a centralized / redundant cluster. Based on their comprehensive review of all the unified communications technologies available, Salient Networks decided to bid Voice Mobility's Vmerge solution to support the customer's ultimate goal of integrating their multi-vendor PBX's back to a centralized, redundant unified communications solution installed in 2 of the customer's geographical redundant data centers.

"We were very pleased when we were notified that Salient Networks had won this major award for voicemail replacement and a unified communication solution", said Mike Seeley, VP of Sales for Voice Mobility. "We were even more pleased that the customer is PG&E, the nation's largest utility company based in California. Our solutions are built for customers just like PG&E. Multiple locations, multiple switch types and the need to consolidate and flatten their network ultimately won us the business. I'd like to thank the Salient and Voice Mobility teams for doing a wonderful job in representing the solution to the customer."

A brief list of the applications and functionality to be deployed include:

- Speech Auto Attendant

- Full Unified Messaging to Microsoft®

- Fax Services for Departmental Users

- Mobile Clients for Remote Workers

- Speech Verification

- Custom IVR Menus

- Emergency Event Notification

With the assistance of Salient Networks, PG&E plans to begin migrating their 17,000 users and existing call-processing applications by mid-summer 2009. The Vmerge system will integrate and provide a coordinated dial plan for their existing standard PBX switches from Aastra Intecom, Cisco, and Avaya, as well as legacy PBX switches from GTE Omni® and Rolm.
