Business Editors/Technology Writers

BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 8, 2001

ISIS(R)-700 OmniService(TM) Switch, Oresis' Flagship Product,

is a Carrier-Class Packet Tandem Softswitch and Media Gateway

Oresis Communications, Inc., a leading developer of next-generation, carrier-class switching products for global telecommunication carriers, today announced that TMC Labs and Communication Solutions Magazine awarded the ISIS(R)-700 OmniService(TM) Switch with the 2001 Innovation Award.

The ISIS-700 OmniService switch is recognized as the first multiservice switching system offering a carrier-grade integrated tandem softswitch, and media gateway for voice, data, and Internet services. The TMC Labs Innovation Award is bestowed on products that demonstrate raw innovation, unique features and significant contributions to the communications industry. TMC Labs engineers use their extensive knowledge of the communications, Internet telephony and call center industries to select product award winners that are "truly innovative."

As service providers migrate to next-generation networks, innovative Class 4 switches will capture the attention of carriers and service providers as a resource for legacy and next generation networks alike. The ISIS-700 OmniService switch delivers switched voice services over a packet network and data services over a packet network. More importantly, service providers can use existing technologies and infrastructure by migrating both circuit and packet-switched networks to ATM or IP backbones, according to the TMC Labs engineers who evaluated the ISIS-700.

"It is truly an honor to be recognized as a unique, state-of-the-art product innovator by TMC Labs and Communications Solutions," said Ali Sarabi, president and CEO of Oresis Communications. "As a two-time recipient of this award, the ISIS-700 continues to distinguish itself as a leader in carrier-grade solutions that offer QoS, flexibility, scalability and high performance for next generation packet-based networks."

Only twelve Innovation Award winners were selected out of over one hundred applications submitted to TMC Labs. The awards are sponsored by two leading telecommunications industry publications, Communications Solutions and Internet Telephony, and the Oresis Innovation Award write-up is featured in the October 2001 issue of Communications Solutions.
