Dialogic Corporation Acquires Cantata Through Purchase of EAS Group, Inc.

    Brooktrout, Excel Switching and SnowShore now also owned by Dialogic

    MONTREAL, October 5 /CNW/ - Dialogic Corporation ("Dialogic") announced
today that it has acquired all of the outstanding shares of EAS Group Inc.
("EAS"). Subsidiaries of EAS include Cantata Technology, Inc., Excel Switching
Corporation, Brooktrout Technology, Inc. and SnowShore Networks Inc. The
acquisition was a share-based transaction and the former shareholders of EAS
are now minority shareholders in Dialogic.

    Through the acquisition of EAS and its subsidiaries, Dialogic will expand
its product portfolio and customer base in the communications technology
enabling market segment with the rich portfolio of Cantata(R) communication
boards and software. The addition of the SnowShore(R) IP Media Server(TM), the
Excel Converged System Platform ("CSP"), the Excel Multi-Services Platform
("MSP") and Cantata Technology(TM) IMG 1010(TM) product families to Dialogic's
product portfolio will enable Dialogic to expand its customer base in the
service provider market segment. The addition of the Brooktrout(R) TR1000(TM),
Brooktrout TR1034(TM), Brooktrout(R) TruFax(R) and Brooktrout(R) SR140(TM)
product families will also strengthen Dialogic's leading position in the
enterprise market segment.

    "We are very excited about this acquisition," said Nick Jensen,
Dialogic's President and CEO. "It allows us to consolidate our position as the
market segment leader and broaden our leading edge product and services
portfolio. We are confident that we will seamlessly integrate this business
into Dialogic as successfully as we did last year when we acquired Intel
Corporation's media and signaling business. Our customers can be assured that,
despite our significant growth, we will remain a company that is easy to do
business with. As well, all of our stakeholders can be assured that we will
continue to build Dialogic through vision, focus and excellent execution of
our strategy."

    The new product lines will be added to Dialogic's already expansive
selection of products that include technology leading Dialogic(R) Host Media
Processing software, Dialogic(R) signaling software and the industry's
broadest selection of media processing boards, SS7 signaling components, and
robust PBX-to-IP media gateways.

    "Once we started talking with Dialogic, we knew there would be great
synergy in the product roadmaps. Dialogic already had products like the IMG
1010 and MSP integrated signaling and media gateways and platforms on its
roadmap. With this acquisition, Dialogic is able to offer these products now.
For example, the IMG1010 with its NEBS 3 design improves Dialogic's position
in the carrier-grade market segment. Additionally, the SnowShore IP Media
Server combined with the current Dialogic(R) Multi Media Platform (MMP) offers
our customers market leading IMS-ready products," said Tim Murray, Chief
Operating Officer at Dialogic, formerly CEO of Cantata Technology.
