Voice Mobility Accelerates Messaging and Voice Applications for Enterprise and IP Service Providers

Voice Mobility's advanced voice and messaging software breaks new ground with leading enterprise, IP Telephony and mobility feature sets

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 29, 2006) - Voice Mobility International, Inc. (TSX:VMY)(OTCBB:VMII)(FWB:VMY), a Vancouver based developer and provider of carrier grade enhanced messaging solutions, has launched its largest software release in history.

Designed to bring the messaging industry to new ground, this feature rich release provides affordable and practical solutions to the issues faced by service providers, resellers and enterprise customers. Industry reports indicate the telephony market is at the early stages of what financial analysts are calling "a multi-year transition" from TDM-based technology to IP-based technology. Voice Mobility's UCN applications have incorporated what the market is demanding for current and future functionality in a solution that can reside in a telecommunications network or on premise at an enterprise location.

Any size business or service provider can take advantage of the UCN applications platform. Incorporated with this release is the ability to combine application nodes into single server configurations allowing for multiple hardware combinations. This translates into the ability to serve everything from small enterprises on premise, to service provider solutions serving over one million users per system.

Voice Mobility's focus for this release has been on 3 key areas: the hosted and premise-based enterprise market, the wireless market and the market for exciting new products that enhance the integration of messaging with the Internet.

The business and service provider markets are transforming to IP centric infrastructures. Voice and data traffic share the same network, thus driving costs down for both providers and businesses. Voice Mobility has added Voice over IP support for calls using SIP signaling, including SIP support for message waiting indication. A single platform can blend both IP and TDM connectivity, allowing for a phased approach to IP migration. We have added sophisticated caching support to remote telephony nodes, allowing branch offices and remote service provider data centers to deploy remote or branch office location of almost any size. The platform can be easily scaled up or down based on the needs of the deployment. As an option businesses can add message archiving, enabling data retention of voice and fax messages in accordance with Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA requirements.

"Avaya and Voice Mobility collaborated on this release to bring the latest user features and technology enhancements to our customers," said George Humphrey, Director, Avaya On Demand, Avaya Inc. "Voice Mobility was able to produce the largest release they have done in record time. Our customers have been looking for an 'all-in-one' solution and the UCN platform has achieved that."

User updates include enhancements to our system's partitioning policies allowing communities and community-groups across businesses, providers and the system as a whole. Web-based distribution list modification has been included, allowing for fast and efficient management of distribution lists. IMAP 4 message synchronization between email clients and the messaging platform has been added to ensure messages and notifications are dealt with once, improving efficiency for any organization. Dial by name support has been added for all IVR and user interfaces. To improve usability a Google™ module allows full integration of a subscriber's messages with the Google homepage. Other portal and application integrations may be added via our new Web-services interface. New attachment encodings have been added allowing the user to select MP3, WAV, PDF and TIF file formats, easing integration with newer devices like the Palm Treo™. In addition, legacy messaging interfaces from Lucent, Nortel, Avaya, Siemens, and others can be supported, lowering user impact during vital migrations from old technology.

"The new solution has the ability to span wireless, business, satellite and landline deployments," said Rob Collins, Director of Marketing, Voice Mobility. "Voice Mobility's new applications encompass the back-office functionality required by enterprise and service provider customers. Most notably partitioning and the VOIP enhancements allow the platform to be hosted in a number of very flexible and cost effective configurations."

Voice Mobility is also proud to launch Spoken Web Feeds. This service allows users to listen to Web feeds and Podcasts through their telephone interface. Web Feeds are established by the user and appear in their user interface as another message type, simplifying the process of extracting information from the web. We will be communicating to the market more information about this technology and its exciting and practical applications very soon. Cliff McCollum, Vice President of Technology and Development, Voice Mobility added, "Voice Mobility is excited to be first to market with a carrier-grade platform for accessing RSS or Podcast data through a telephone. We believe this feature opens enormous possibilities for carriers, enterprises and end-users alike. Watch our website for a public trial of this application planned to be available in the next few weeks."
