SINGAPORE -- T-Systems' carrier division, International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), announced today its interconnection with Hanoi Telecom via the Jules Platform, T-Systems' global VoIP network powered by VocalTec Communications Ltd. (Nasdaq: VOCL - News) equipment. This deal allows Hanoi Telecom, a newly licensed carrier for international voice business, Internet, mobile and fixed lines, to route its international voice traffic over T-Systems' global VoIP network.

"Connecting to T-Systems' global VoIP network using VocalTec's packet tandem switching solution improves time to market and provides immediate international reach," said Dr. Pham Ngoc Lang, Chairman, Hanoi Telecom. The Jules Platform, a carrier-grade global VoIP network, combines T-Systems' network capabilities and VocalTec's technological expertise and support capabilities to offer carriers outstanding network quality and reliability.

"Our joint solution with VocalTec enables carriers to benefit from several cost advantages such as minimal up-front investment, lower termination rates and an option for outsourcing operations and management to T-Systems," said Mr. Calvin Lee, Vice President, T-Systems ICSS, Asia Pacific & Middle East.

In the initial phase of this deployment, T-Systems set up Points of Presence (PoPs) for Hanoi Telecom in nine key cities in Vietnam, with VocalTec's carrier-grade packet tandem equipment installed at each PoP in the new network for international long distance traffic. In addition, the one-stop-shop solution includes training and support on a 'managed and transfer' basis. There are plans to extend the network into ten additional provinces in subsequent phases.

"As a new international long distance voice operator in Vietnam, Hanoi Telecom required a proven solution that would enable it to commence business operations in the shortest possible period of time," said Orlando Tan, Managing Director South Asia at VocalTec. "Our joint VoIP carrier solution with T-Systems enables Hanoi Telecom to generate immediate revenues, minimize operational costs and achieve worldwide network connectivity."
