VoSKY Signs on China's Largest IT/Telecom Distributor, Digital China

VoSKY PBX-to-Skype Application Gateways Extend Skype to China's Vast SMB Market

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - VoSKY today announced a major global expansion of its VoSKY Exchange VoIP application gateway business through an agreement with Digital China, the largest IT/Telecom products distributor and systems integrator in China. VoSKY Exchange is the first Skype solution for business to be sold through the Digital China network, reflecting growing market interest in the gateway's ability to add enhanced VoIP-based business applications and Skype trunks to any traditional or IP-based office phone system.

Effective immediately, Digital China's 6,000 VARs have access to the full VoSKY Exchange product line, including seven four-port and eight-port editions that seamlessly connect to any PBX with no modifications to existing PBX equipment, desk phones or user PCs. This will enable resellers to offer low-cost, easily deployable, value-added VoIP solutions to the 8.3 million small and medium businesses in China.

"Skype is well-known in China with over 65 million registered users. At the same time, nearly every business here has a need to reduce long-distance and international phone charges, particularly given the country's position in the global economy," said Wang Huamao, Vice President of Digital China. "We expect all of these factors to drive demand for VoSKY Exchange and give our resellers a strong new platform to help grow their revenues."

With VoSKY Exchange, VARs can equip business customers with free Skype calling between company offices in different cities and/or countries, free PC-based inbound calls to the PBX from remote or mobile users, free Web Click-to-Call connectivity from business websites, and low-cost long distance and international calls from the PBX to outside phones. Free interoffice communication is possible even with disparate PBXs, using Exchange application gateways to create a private voice network.

All VoSKY Exchange applications enable users to make or receive free or low-cost Internet-based Skype calls using standard desk phones without PCs or headsets. The VoSKY platform also centralizes Skype provisioning and management, eliminating the need to install Skype on each desktop.

"Digital China is extremely influential in the Chinese IT/Telecom world and has a vast network of resellers in every corner of the country," said David Tang, VoSKY Vice President of Global Marketing. "The fact that they are backing our VoSKY Exchange product line clearly demonstrates the strength of our technology, the market opportunity for VARs, and the growing market traction of our Exchange product line."

VoSKY Exchange is the only enterprise-grade PBX-to-Skype application gateway that has earned Skype certification, ensuring seamless interoperability with Skype features and services. It is also the only product in its class that has been co-branded by Skype.
