CHELMSFORD, Mass. -- Sonus Networks (Nasdaq: SONS), a leading supplier ofservice provider voice over IP (VoIP) infrastructure solutions, todayannounced that RANGER Wireless Solutions is deploying a full suite ofSonus product offerings, including the GSX9000(TM) Open ServicesSwitch, the ASX(TM) Call Management Server, the PSX(TM) Call RoutingServer and the Sonus Insight(TM) Management System. RANGER Wirelessdelivers a patented 611 Roaming Service(TM), which routes roamingwireless customers to their home call centers.

Traditionally, wireless operators have delivered customer servicebeyond the boundaries of their licensed service areas throughpartnerships with other providers. When subscribers travel outside oftheir home network, dialing 611 routes the call to the servingcarrier's customer care center or roamers hear a recorded announcementinstructing them to call their service provider directly. Supported byits Sonus-based VoIP network, RANGER is updating its patented 611Roaming Service that enables cellular callers to connect to theircarriers' customer care center regardless of the subscriber's physicallocation, reducing expensive interconnection and service costs.Further, by implementing a Sonus architecture, RANGER can integratenew services and continue to rapidly and more efficiently expand itsnetwork than it would if relying on traditional telephonyarchitectures. Today, RANGER serves over 40 wireless carriers in theUS, including five of the top 10 cellular providers.
