Star2Star Communications Awarded "Best of Show" at IT EXPO East 2007

SARASOTA, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 6, 2007 -- Star2Star Communications, maker of the world's most reliable business grade Internet phone solution, announced today that it has been named as a winner of a "Best of Show" Award at the Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference and EXPO East 2007. TMC reports that the conference was attended by over 7,000 people at the Ft. Lauderdale/Broward Convention Center in Florida.

The Best of Show awards are presented to companies unveiling the most impressive new products or new releases at the show. Each winner also had to display and demonstrate their product on the INTERNET TELEPHONY Expo show floor. "The Star2Star Communications innovative product offering leverages them as the PBX manufacturer with its StarBox and as the VoIP service provider with its StarService," said TMC President and Conference Chairman, Rich Tehrani. "Their groundbreaking architecture and commitment to quality attracted many serious prospects to their booth. Attendees knew they'd find solutions in the Star2Star booth that would help them in their businesses today."

Star2Star Communications is the only provider of a completely integrated End-to-End Business Grade Internet Phone Solution. As both the PBX manufacturer and internet phone service provider (the dial tone), Star2Star uniquely offers a complete phone solution that includes hardware, phone service, 24x7x365 monitoring of the phone system, network and call quality with 7-way backup that involves triple redundant internet connections, redundant phone carriers, redundant data center equipment, analog line switchover, disaster recovery (automatic call-forwarding if your office power is lost), automatic internet modem reset and optional dual-homed ISP connectivity. This exclusive integrated approach makes Star2Star the only internet phone solution vendor that can guarantee 99.9% reliability.

Joe Rhem, CTO and President of Star2Star, states, "It is quite an honor to be recognized as one of the best business internet phone solutions by the leading source of news for the communications and technology industries. The response to StarSystem has been phenomenal. While end user businesses continue to rave about the StarSystem's powerful features, reliability and quality, businesses who finance their equipment purchase with Star2Star also consistently report being able to start using the system, even from the first month, with little-to-no out of pocket expense since the average business phone bill is cut in half. This has been an important selling point for dealers. Authorized dealers also report getting great feedback with the 30-day money back guarantee where end users can use the StarSystem for outgoing calls side-by-side their current system for incoming calls, confirming the StarSystem works for their specific office needs."

A full list of the winners appears on the TMC Web site,, and will be published in the March 2007 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY® magazine.
