SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Covad Communications Group Inc. (OTCBB:COVD), a leading national provider of integrated voice and data communications, today announced that it is offering business-class Voice over IP (VoIP) services based on Cisco equipment to business customers nationwide. In addition, Covad's Voice over IP business-class service has earned the Cisco Powered Network designation.

Covad's VoIP services are managed end-to-end, offering small and medium businesses an unparalleled suite of services and quality of service. Both of Covad's business-class VoIP services, vPBX and PBXi, include the industry-leading Cisco 3662/5350 Gateway, Cisco 7600 Series Routers and Cisco Catalyst 3550 Switches.

"We chose Covad's VoIP service because their nationwide network can accommodate our growing communication needs," said Curt Scott, vice president of information technology at American West. "We have seen an increase in productivity and improved communication between employees and customers due to the features we now have at our fingertips. The return on our investment is the best proof point of all."

"Managed network services are the foundation for delivering business solutions that will provide our customers with the end-to-end performance and reliability that they require over an IP network," said Bill Jarvis, senior vice president of voice for Covad. "By deploying Cisco's market-leading technology, we will be able to roll out our new VoIP services to over 100 markets by the end of year."

"Covad's participation in the Cisco Powered Network program demonstrates to individuals and businesses its commitment to providing industry-leading services that are based on Cisco solutions," said Kirt Jorgenson, director of service provider marketing for Cisco.
