WESTFORD, Mass. and STAINES, U.K. -- Sonus Networks, (Nasdaq: SONS - News), a market leader in IP communications infrastructure, and Interoute, the owner of an advanced next generation voice and data network in Europe, today announced that they are working together to increase the capacity of Interoute's Virtual Voice Network (VVN) in Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the United States.

Interoute has implemented Sonus' IMS compliant technology in over eight European countries and has recently deployed the technology in New York, with further expansion plans underway for 2009. Operators, ISPs and service providers are able to expand their operations and take advantage of a range of SIP services in new markets without making an upfront investment in their own infrastructure. In addition, Interoute is working to extend the capacity of its VVN platform beyond Europe to the Middle East and other regions, allowing operators, ISPs and service providers to lease network capacity and take advantage of a range of SIP services, permitting them to operate globally without an upfront financial commitment by accessing a ready-made secure, scalable and robust voice network.

This move represents strategic growth in geographic markets for Interoute and demonstrates how Sonus is empowering customers such as Interoute to deliver innovative services at the forefront of emerging markets.

"We are continually investing in state of the art technology and infrastructure in order to develop innovative new services and support the growth of our customers into new markets," commented Gareth Williams, Interoute's CEO. "The Sonus platform continues to perform at a carrier class level and enables us to deliver our core voice business growth plans. We have already seen how the VVN enables operators to enter new markets outside Western Europe; voice traffic across the network grew by over 100 per cent between November 2007 and July 2008 owing to a large increase in demand to and from India, Africa and Asia."
