Dialogic(R) 2000 Media Gateway Series Validated for Interoperbility with IBM Sametime Unified Telephony

    Combined Solution Allows Enterprise Users to Easily Enable UC
Applications in Legacy PBX Environments

    ORLANDO, Fla., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- VoiceCon -- Dialogic Corporation
("Dialogic"), a global provider of world-class products and technologies for
media and signal processing, today announced that the company, working with
IBM, has completed the necessary testing to validate the Dialogic(R) 2000
Media Gateway Series (DMG2000) as interoperable with IBM Sametime Unified
Telephony. The DMG2000 gateway will allow enterprises utilizing legacy PBX
systems to access leading-edge capabilities of Sametime Unified Telephony to
enable innovative, cost-effective unified communications and collaboration

    Sametime Unified Telephony software simplifies the process of deploying
unified communications in environments containing multiple, mixed telephone
systems. Sametime Unified Telephony includes rich, aggregated presence to show
whether a contact is able to take a phone call, to provide alerts of incoming
phone calls, to allow users to route calls to various devices and to establish
rules on how to handle calls based on their status. The software also provides
the ability to make phone calls with an integrated softphone.

    The DMG2000 is a turnkey appliance that seamlessly merges traditional
telephony with IP networks to help businesses migrate to IP telephony and
unified communications.  It is one of the first gateway currently to be
validated as interoperable with Sametime Unified Telephony, and is
interoperable with a wide range of PBX systems, resulting in greater ease of
deployment. Among the key features enabled by the DMG2000 is call delivery to
the user on multiple networks to allow for flexible call routing to suit the
end user's requirements.

    "In today's market, there is a substantial opportunity to support
enterprises in making a cost-effective migration to VoIP," said Jim Machi,
senior vice president of marketing at Dialogic.  "The combined DMG2000 and
Sametime Unified Telephony solution will allow enterprise IT managers to
easily adopt IP-based unified communications while using their existing
infrastructure at an incremental cost, rather than taking on a huge CAPEX

    "Dialogic has a wealth of experience in enabling the creation and
deployment of new and unique IP applications in legacy PBX environments," said
Akiba Saeedi, director of unified communications and collaboration at IBM. "As
a result of our collaboration with Dialogic, enterprises will now be able to
realize the benefits of IBM's Sametime Unified Telephony while using their
existing PBX equipment and reducing the potentially disruptive and expensive
upgrades to new PBX equipment."

    Sametime Unified Telephony is expected to be available from IBM in July
