Versatel Networks Selected by H.M. Net Technologies to Deliver TDM and VoIP Telephony Applications.

Business Editors

HULL, Canada--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 16, 2004

Long Distance Service Provider to Deploy and Resell Applications

Developed for Deployment on the Open and Scalable Versatel

EdgeIQ Intelligent Media Gateway Platform

Versatel Networks today announced that H.M. Net Technologies Inc., custom telephony and network systems specialists and its affiliate company Unlimitel Inc., a provider of a broad range of telephony services to residents across Ontario, Canada, are using the Versatel EdgeIQ(TM) intelligent media gateway.

To efficiently deploy services at the network edge, the Versatel EdgeIQ platform combines media gateway and media server functions into a single scalable solution. Applications hosted at the network edge using the EdgeIQ support PSTN and IP customers equally and minimize the expense of backhauling traffic from one network to the other. H.M. Net Technologies designs switching applications for deployment on the EdgeIQ platform in its carrier business unit, Unlimitel, as well as for resale to third-party carrier businesses.

"We are a long distance service provider, so we understand what other carriers need to run services," said Stephan Monette, president of H.M. Net Technologies. "As our own business grew, we knew we need a higher density system. We purchased equipment from Versatel because it met our scalability needs, and the open platform allows us to develop new services and creates an additional revenue stream for our business, as we resell to other service providers."

H.M. Net is using the EdgeIQ platform for the development and deployment of telephony switching applications such as prepaid calling and dual stage dialling. The company also has developed a remote monitoring application that uses a GUI interface to check the status of remote equipment, saving the time and money associated with deploying an engineer to the field for routine maintenance.

"Partnerships with application developers are a key component to our strategy in delivering new voice services to the carrier market," said Robert Mimeault, president and CEO of Versatel Networks. "As a customer and a partner, H.M.Net understands the value of our open architecture for developing new services that can be deployed in both TDM and VoIP networks. Scalability is achieved by simply adding a card without ever disrupting any applications. Innovative carriers such as H.M. Net are succeeding because they understand the value of developing new revenue-generating services that benefit their customers."
