FORT LEE, N.J. -- VocalTec Communications Ltd. (Nasdaq: VOCL - News), a leading VoIP telecom equipment provider, today announced the immediate availability of its newly expanded Essentra(TM) Product Suite, a modular set of open and highly focused VoIP products for next generation network (NGN) operators and service providers.

VocalTec's Essentra Product Suite provides global and local service providers and carriers a cost-effective means to incrementally support tailored VoIP-based service offerings with near-term revenue potential. The flexible set of products support a wide variety of applications -- including broadband VoIP access, long distance trunking, wholesale international long distance, pre-paid and post-paid calling card, transport of GSM roaming and SMS traffic, and hosted enterprise VoIP services - providing carriers immediate revenue opportunities in a broad range of markets. Products can be deployed individually, "mixed and matched," or as part of a best-of-breed network solution, giving both flexible entry points and high scalability options for service deployments. To ensure that previous investments in VoIP equipment are not compromised, VocalTec has designed the suite of products to seamlessly integrate with existing VocalTec solutions or with equipment from other vendors.

VocalTec's Essentra Product Suite leverages VocalTec's experience and expertise in deploying scores of carrier-grade VoIP networks and most notably includes the Essentra(TM) BAX broadband VoIP access platform, Essentra(TM) CX core control softswitch, Essentra(TM) EX network peering manager, and Essentra(TM) VSX SS7-enabled SIP/H.323 signaling and traffic gateway.

Moti Suess, Chief Operating Officer at VocalTec, said, "VocalTec's extensive experience in IP telephony applications, along with our carrier-class Essentra products, provide a compelling package for carriers looking to capitalize on VoIP applications for new service revenues and lower costs in broadband voice and Class 4 replacement. The Essentra product suite broadens VocalTec's offerings to our existing customer base and expands their market opportunities, while allowing them to leverage their current equipment investments. Essentra BAX, for example, allows service providers to address residential and SOHO/SME customers in developed markets, such as North America and parts of Europe and Asia, which already have a high rate of broadband penetration. At the same time, we will continue to leverage our strong market position in international, emerging and deregulating markets, where VoIP provides a cost-effective and quick-to-deploy solution for operators."
