CHICAGO -- Today at SUPERCOMM 2005, Sonus Networks (Nasdaq: SONS), a leading supplier of service provider voice over IP (VoIP) infrastructure solutions, unveiled the GSX4000(TM) Open Services Switch, the industry's first innovative, compact VoIP switch that is designed to deliver carrier-class functionality, reliability and manageability. The GSX4000 was developed specifically for service providers enabling them to expand the reach of their core VoIP networks into new applications, new geographic regions or to deploy IP-based multimedia services. Based on the award-winning GSX9000(TM), the GSX4000 allows service providers to cost-effectively extend the reach of their network boundaries with the same carrier-class functionality that is the hallmark of Sonus' products.

"We have architected our solution from inception to deliver the highest levels of performance, scalability, reliability and interoperability. With the addition of the GSX4000 to Sonus' product family, Sonus now has a complete range of carrier-class VoIP switches enabling service providers to cost-effectively migrate to an all-IP network," said Mike Hluchyj, founder and CTO, Sonus Networks. "The GSX4000 is an ideal solution for service providers that are extending the reach of their packet voice network into new market segments, entering new regions of the world, or introducing new business and consumer services."

The GSX4000 allows service providers to realize the benefits of the GSX9000 on a platform that is right-sized for their immediate needs. By delivering the proven reliability of the GSX9000 in a smaller form factor, service providers are able to cost-effectively support a highly distributed subscriber base or create an initial presence in a large market. The GSX family features industry-leading scalability providing a seamless and straightforward expansion path from several hundred ports to several million ports to meet the demand of the worldwide market. The GSX4000 is being introduced with 24 T1/E1 interfaces. Further, by utilizing advanced DSP technology and the mature software deployed extensively in service provider networks for over six years, the GSX4000 is purpose-built for deployments within service providers' networks worldwide.
