“The addition of GotVoice gives PortaSwitch users a highly flexible and
strategic service option,” said Roman Khalenkov, sales and marketing director

customers. In whichever form, this service is a unique differentiator-one
with proven and lasting appeal for both business and non-business users in
today’s competitive VoIP marketplace.”

The integrated GotVoice offering with the PortaSwitch platform requires no

their voice, data and fax traffic within a single network. The comprehensive,
Class 5 product consists of a softswitch and application servers, delivering
SIP call control, unified messaging, IP Centrex and IP PBX, voice VPN,

need,” said Colin Lamont, vice president of marketing for GotVoice.
