ALAMEDA, Calif. -- UTStarcom, Inc. , a global leader in IP-based, end-to-end networking solutions and services, today announced a key milestone in its Next Generation Network (NGN) business: from the second quarter of 2005 through the fourth quarter of 2007, the company's mSwitch(TM) NGN solution carried more than 500 billion minutes of usage (MoU). Per quarterly market reports entitled "New Voice Networks" by leading market researcher iLocus, this represents 16 percent of global Voice over IP (VoIP) traffic.

Additionally, for the 11th consecutive quarter, iLocus ranked UTStarcom as the number one vendor for Global Class 5 VoIP MoU.

"UTStarcom is one of the leading vendors for next generation voice networks as evidenced by its continued leadership for Class 5 and Local traffic on IP networks," noted Jahangir Raina, Director of Research, iLocus. "In the past 11 consecutive quarters where UTStarcom has dominated the Class 5 and Local VoIP market, UTStarcom has established its leadership with a cumulative 45 percent share of global Class 5 IP voice traffic. Recent deployment contracts for UTStarcom including PLDT in Asia and Jersey Telecom in Europe continue to demonstrate UTStarcom's commitment to Class 5 replacement."

NGN is a core business focus area for UTStarcom, as the company continues to capitalize on the trends of explosive Internet traffic and the end-of-life of traditional switches. UTStarcom NGN solutions are designed to converge existing services and new multimedia-rich applications onto a single NGN solution. The company incorporates a comprehensive feature set, including support for local and long distance voice services that previously required implementation of large and very complex telephone switches. UTStarcom also supports value-added applications such as unified messaging and communications, fixed mobile convergence (FMC) and many more.

For service providers, UTStarcom's NGN solutions can reduce recurring operating expense (OPEX) while enabling new applications and providing an integrated back end system (BES) for solutions including NGN, Broadband and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV). UTStarcom's NGN solution architecture provides a converged "Triple Play" service delivery of voice, data and video.
