SIP Switch Singled Out for Its Technological Excellence and Vision

NASHUA, N.H., Jan. 05, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Intertex announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC(r))'s INTERNET TELEPHONY(r) magazine, named the Intertex SIP Switch as a Product of the Year winner for 2003. INTERNET TELEPHONY(r) is the premier publication in the burgeoning IP telephony industry.

"Intertex is pleased to be honored with a Product of the Year award from Technology Marketing Corporation for the second consecutive year. The Intertex SIP Switch for the first time combines the best of two worlds: URL dialing, presence, instant messaging and video from the IP world used simultaneously with number dialing and traditional PBX functions required to make SIP phones convenient to use. The SIP Switch integrates the usage of soft SIP PC clients, SIP hardware phones and ordinary telephones, with full access to and from the PSTN, plus global connectivity over the Internet to all other open SIP systems in the world. Being a software addition to the IX66 SIP capable broadband firewall, the SIP Switch helps small companies both to lower their telephone costs and to benefit from the new functions and features of live IP-based person-to-person communication, at an attractive price," said Martin Feuk, Executive Vice President of Intertex.

"Intertex SIP Switch is clearly deserving of leadership status in the IP PBX and SIP enabled firewall sector of the IP telephony industry. We're proud to reward their hard work and innovation with a Product of the Year Award for 2003," said Rich Tehrani, president of TMC and group editor-in-chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY(r).

According to Editorial Director Greg Galitzine, "The Product of the Year awards exemplify the best that this industry has to offer. Intertex has demonstrated a commitment to quality, and a commitment to the further development of the IP telephony industry through its SIP Switch. Intertex deserves this great honor, and I look forward to seeing other innovative solutions from them as they continue to contribute to the future of IP telephony."

A full list of Product of the Year winners will appear in the January, 2004 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY(r) magazine.
