BOSTON -- Datameg Corporation (OTC BB: DTMG), an emerging company in voice delivery assurance for VoIP, PSTN, and converged VoIP/PSTN networks, today announced the appointment of Kanti Purohit as the company's chief executive officer. The addition of Purohit is a key component of Datameg's strategic growth plan that includes enhancing the company's leadership with technology industry veterans. His appointment also coincides with Datameg's market roll-out of its active end-to-end voice quality and service delivery assurance system, through its wholly-owned subsidiary North Electric Company, Inc. (NECI), that enable voice network operators and service providers to continually determine if their network is meeting its quality and service level expectations. Purohit's immediate objectives will be to build the company's executive management, sales, and marketing teams. With Purohit's addition, Andrew Benson assumes the role of Datameg's chairman.

"Kanti is a milestone addition to Datameg's leadership team, and the timing is just right," said Benson. "Datameg's voice delivery assurance products are the right solution at the right time as voice network operators and service providers worldwide struggle to assure the quality of voice and the reliability of service delivery over combined legacy TDM/SS7 networks and emerging VoIP networks. Datameg is the answer to the challenges of today's converging network - an active monitoring and predictive diagnostic solution that cuts across two disparate voice networks."

Benson added, "Kanti's executive skills are a rare combination of 30 years of business and technology experience that is augmented by his marketing and sales savvy. He brings to Datameg an exceptional record of building emerging hi-tech companies. I am thrilled to have Kanti lead Datameg's transition from a development stage company to a fully operational enterprise spanning sales, marketing, and customer service."

"VoIP vendors dream of a PSTN-free telecom world. And PSTN incumbents wish VoIP didn't take-off and erode their cash cow. However, the reality is that the PSTN isn't going away anytime soon and VoIP is here to stay," said Purohit. "Making both networks work together is a daunting undertaking because it adds an unprecedented level of complexity in assuring dependable delivery of voice services that meet customers' voice quality expectations."
