IVR Technologies, a leading software company for IP enhanced services and real-time billing, and NexTone, a leader in session border controllers and scalable session management solutions for VoIP, multi-media, and IMS network interconnects, are working together to provide Infocom Technologies (Infocom) with an advanced next-generation enhanced services solution. The combination of IVR Technologies' Talking SIP application, a fully-integrated application, media and real-time billing server and NexTone's advanced session border controller functionality enables Infocom to offer its subscriber base a wide array of enhanced services ranging from prepaid calling cards to primary and second line business and residential services, rich end-user web controls and e-commerce facilities for anytime and anywhere subscription and payment services.

Infocom is a pioneer in the Philippine ISP industry. For more than a decade, it has made its mark as a leader in the industry through its expertise, network reliability, and its innovation. Through the years Infocom has constantly pursued a desire to adapt to better serve its valued clients, and expand into new markets. It is this desire that serves as the impetus for Infocom to re-focus its business from the Internet to value added business process outsourcing services.

IVR Technologies' Talking SIP is an advanced software platform that combines three traditionally separate network elements into a single, tightly integrated solution for SIP based voice over IP networks. Talking SIP's revolutionary architecture combines the features of an application server, media server, and real-time billing server into a single, cohesive, all-in-one solution. Talking SIP is designed to drive revenue to the network by providing intelligent and in-demand applications that attract users and reduce turnover through innovative features, creative billing options, customizability and end-user empowerment.

NexTone provides a comprehensive SIP trunking solution for service providers and medium and large enterprises. The company's SIP trunking solution leverages NexTone's IntelliConnect™ System to provide intelligence at the network edge. The NexTone MSX, combined with the NexTone SBC, provides secure, high-quality VoIP calls that interoperate with Infocom's other VoIP equipment so it can bridge its customers' networks to the provider's SIP-based prepaid platform. The NexTone RSM provides centralized QoS/SLA management and traffic engineering for VoIP networks and gives excellent visibility into service and network quality, which is critical for Infocom's outsourced pre-paid, postpaid, and wholesale VoIP services.

"We are pleased to be part of the Infocom network as they leverage their expertise and network to move into the lucrative and growing hosted market while they augment their business with higher margin retail services. It has been our continued pleasure to work together with NexTone worldwide providing next-generation VoIP service providers with in-demand subscriber services. By working closely with a best-in-class company like NexTone, our combined solution is able to meet Infocom's immediate requirements as well as continue to grow with their vision for innovative and targeted services as they continue to lead the Philippine market," said Barry S. Sher, VP Business Development, IVR Technologies.

"By working with an innovative company like IVR Technologies, we are helping to extend Infocom's capabilities to offer enhanced SIP-based services to customers," said John Longo, vice president of marketing for NexTone. "NexTone views this relationship with IVR Technologies as a long-term effort to allow a leading technology provider in Asia to quickly grow its customer base and revenues with multiple new VoIP services."

"Talking SIP, working in tandem with our NexTone SBC, has allowed Infocom to provide differentiated prepaid and postpaid products to our local wholesale customers. Since our service offering is IP-based, we are able to extend our clients' reach beyond geographical borders. It also fits in well with Infocom's strategy of being a technology enabler and solutions provider," said Reynaldo Sulit, IPX Business Manager.
