NEC Solidifies Reputation as Innovator in the Convergence Marketplace with NEAX IPX; Newest Member of NEAX Family Allows Enterprises to Deploy Pure Peer-to-Peer Switching.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 3, 2002

NEC America, Inc. (NEC), a leading provider of innovative communications products, solutions and services, today announced the availability of the NEAX(R) Internet Protocol eXchange Distributed Model (IPX(DM)).

The newest member of NEC's complete end-to-end convergence solution, the NEAX IPX(DM) targets those enterprises that are predominately deploying IP pure peer-to-peer voice switching.

Peer-to-Peer switching allows the NEAX IPX(DM) to provide all of NEC's networking services and Dterm(R) Series E digital telephone features when deployed over an IP network. The voice signals travel through the IP network but do not "go through" the switch as they do in traditional telephony. The fact that the NEAX IPX(DM) can function in and support a "hybrid" network with traditional TDM switching and pure peer-to-peer IP switching means the users can continue to utilize their existing equipment while they implement IP telephony and lay the foundation for future networks.

"NEC's modular design, distributed processing, sensible migration, comprehensive network solutions and the ability to customize functionality to match specific business applications are just a few of the NEC benchmarks that the NEAX IPX(DM) builds upon," said Mike Rosen, general manager of NEC America's Corporate Networks Group.

By serving as the controller of an integrated information network, the NEAX IPX(DM) is able to integrate and enhance advanced information processing and management services. The NEAX IPX(DM) combines voice and data, store and forward, and packet switching, among many other advanced features.

"The NEAX IPX(DM) is another example of NEC's NEON product development philosophy," stated Jay Krauser, assistant general manager of product management in NEC America's Corporate Networks Group. "It allows the user to deploy this new technology when and how it makes good business sense. We also provide a migration path to future technology, helping protect the customer's investment."

The system also delivers advanced applications such as CCIS and IP Networking, IP Stations (both IP enabled and peer-to-peer), Remote Switching, Electronic Tandem Networking, Centralized Attendant Service, Direct Digital Interface, Integrated ACD and Voice Messaging Integration, along with many other feature-rich capabilities via the Open Applications Interface (OAI). This makes it possible for the NEAX 2400 to provide both voice and non-voice services.
