SAN RAMON, Calif. and SEOUL, South Korea -- Kodiak Networks, the leading provider of advanced wireless voice systems and LG Electronics (LGE), a leading provider of mobile phones for network operators, today announced a global agreement to develop and market Push-to-Talk (PTT) handsets using Kodiak's client software. This agreement is first of its kind, in that it allows the two companies to offer a full complement of advanced PTT CDMA, GSM and UMTS handsets.

Under the agreement, the mobile phone manufacturer will continue to provide Kodiak-enabled, CDMA and GSM handsets to customers that have deployed the Kodiak Real-time Exchange(TM) (RTX) System. Kodiak and LGE also will work together to market handsets to additional wireless network operators, including those deploying third-generation (UMTS) and PTT over Cellular (PoC) technologies. The agreement with LGE ensures that wireless operators around the world will have a broad choice of handsets to offer their customers.

"We are very pleased to be working with Kodiak to deliver handsets that showcase advanced voice service functionality across CDMA, GSM and UMTS networks," said Dr. Woo Young Kwak, vice president and Research Fellow, LG Mobile Handset Lab.

"Our agreement with LGE improves the handset offerings available to wireless carriers worldwide who want to deliver Kodiak's Advanced Voice Service functionality," said Bruce Lawler, vice president business development, Kodiak Networks. "Our joint development with LGE will continue to meet rapidly growing subscriber demand for premium voice services with high-quality phones designed for consumers, business professionals and the service industry."
