BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Acme Packet[R] (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session border control solutions, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with NEC Networks & Systems Integration Corp. (NESIC, TSE: 1973), a total network solutions provider covering network integration, support services and telecommunications engineering.

NESIC provides complete network integration services that include network planning, consulting, design, construction, maintenance, network operation, monitoring and outsourcing services worldwide.

Acme Packet's Net-Net SBCs will enable NESIC to better serve to its diverse customer base of IP communications service providers and enterprises. Acme Packet's Net-Net SBCs secure the subscriber access and interconnect/peering borders in next-generation, fixed and mobile, service provider networks. Acme Packet SBCs also enable the interoperability of heterogeneous endpoints, service infrastructure elements and networks to maximize service reach. In enterprise networks and contact centers, Acme Packet's Net-Net SBCs secure the infrastructure delivering VoIP and unified communications. Acme Packet SBCs also secure the borders to the service provider IP network, the private VPN connecting major enterprise or contact center sites and the Internet. In addition, SBCs enable the interoperability of both legacy IP-PBX equipment and next-generation unified communications platforms.

"At NESIC, we are constantly updating our product and services portfolio to increase our customers' value using the most technologically-advanced products available," said Koshiro Konno, Senior Vice President and Member of the Board for NESIC.

"Consequently, NESIC is a very important systems integration partner for Acme Packet in Japan and elsewhere around the world."
