Halo Helps Sangoma Tap into Growing European Markets for its Telephony Products

WARSAW, POLAND--(Marketwire - April 14, 2009) - Sangoma(R) Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), today announced it has extended its distribution capabilities through the new Russian and German subsidiaries of partner HaloKwadrat. With these local operations, HaloKwadrat delivers best-of-breed telephony solutions to these markets at a fraction of the present cost.

Both subsidiaries are selling hardware and software products, and will shortly add training to the portfolio of services. The new subsidiaries facilitate expanded distribution of Sangoma's cards and Netborder Express VoIP Gateway products throughout Russia and Germany.

"Both Russia and Germany are large markets demanding the cost effective product architecture delivered by Sangoma telephony solutions," said Aleksander Wiercinski. "These solutions provide a rock solid alternative to legacy telephony platforms and software, which are prohibitively expensive."
