OTTAWA, Sept. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - Zarlink Semiconductor Inc. (NYSE/TSX:ZL)

Communications product group, will be discussing methods for ensuring quality
in VoIP deployments at TMC's INTERNET TELEPHONY(R) Conference & EXPO West 2007
(Sept. 10-12, Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, California).
"Reducing operating costs and improving customer satisfaction are two

"With the proper diagnostic tools, telecom service providers can implement
line testing throughout the network and address both of these issues."

Experience", will discuss causes for QoE failures, and software and hardware
solutions that can more easily diagnose and resolve these problems. The
session is scheduled for September 11th from 4:30-5:15 p.m.
Mr. Bye joined Zarlink as part of its recent acquisition of Legerity.
Zarlink's Wired Communications product group has been formed through the
merger of the products and expertise of Zarlink's Network Communications group
and Legerity. The new product group delivers a range of voice enhancement and
timing and synchronization products for the access, residential and enterprise
"We are very pleased that Rick will be participating in this year's
show," said Rich Tehrani, TMC president and conference chairman. "Legerity
products and solutions continue to be widely recognized and respected within
the industry, and I am confident that our attendees will appreciate hearing
Mr. Bye's perspective on VoIP quality of experience."
