SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Veraz Networks, Inc., a leading global provider of VoIP softswitch solutions, announced today that Telecom New Zealand International (TNZI) selected Veraz's VoIP softswitch to be the preferred solution for TNZI's telecom switches.

Initially, TNZI will deploy Veraz's ControlSwitch(TM) softswitch, service delivery platform and I-Gate 4000 family of media gateways in key US and UK cities. This initial deployment will be a phased rollout that will be completed in early 2006 and will include installations in Los Angeles, New York, Miami and London.

Before selecting Veraz, TNZI engaged in a thorough assessment of six vendor proposals, the products themselves, and each company's ability to deliver upon TNZI's business requirements. Following this detailed and competitive vendor selection process spanning several months, TNZI selected Veraz as its chosen vendor.

"The strength of Veraz's offering is its open and flexible architecture, and in particular the flexibility of their system's voice traffic routing that can adapt to TNZI's business agreements now and in the future," said Anthony Briscoe, General Manager of Telecom New Zealand International. "Veraz's open architecture paves the way for TNZI to build new business models using best of breed application servers where appropriate, and fits with TNZI's strategy of building its business on voice application wholesale rather than transactional minutes based revenue."

"TNZI wanted a new switching and operational model in order to scale its business and meet future demands," said Doug Sabella, CEO of Veraz Networks. "This is a great win for Veraz in a major market and demonstrates the strength and flexibility of our solutions as well as our ability to deliver what is required in the market of today and tomorrow."
