PAETEC Places Acme Packet in iPATH Service

Multiservice Acme Packet Net-Net Session Border Controllers Provide Security and Maximize Service Reach for Hosted VoIP, IP PBX

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/14/06 -- Acme Packet®, the leader in session border control solutions, today announced at Spring VON that PAETEC Communications, Inc. selected Acme Packet's Net-Net® session border controllers (SBCs) for its iPATH suite of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) business services. The Net-Net SBCs are deployed as part of Lucent's IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution and enable maximum service reach and network security at both access and interconnect borders in PAETEC's network.

Launched in January 2006, iPATH is a multi-faceted solution for medium to large businesses that is comprised of converged voice and data services with dynamic bandwidth allocation, hosted IP voice services and collaboration services. Acme Packet Net-Net SBCs, in high-availability configurations, are deployed in seven PAETEC PoPs and support three different services: hosted VoIP, enterprise IP PBX trunking and provider-to-provider interconnection.

PAETEC's iPATH network uses the Net-Net SBCs to minimize change at its customers' premises and speed time to market with Acme Packet's unique adaptive hosted NAT traversal feature. H.323 to SIP interworking and MPLS VPN bridging enable PAETEC to maximize its service reach for its PBX trunking service. Acme Packet features, including topology hiding, SBC denial-of-service (DoS) attack protection and prevention of DoS attacks and overloads for PAETEC's core VoIP infrastructure, provide a secure border for iPATH customers and service provider partners.

"Being able to sell our services to any business and securing our borders were of utmost importance in architecting iPATH. The security and reliability of voice traffic we deliver over our Private IP Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network -- not the public Internet -- is critical for enterprise customers," said Jack Baron, chief marketing and training officer at PAETEC. "The depth of the Net-Net SBC features for maximizing our service reach and securing our services along with the proven interoperability with the other service infrastructure elements in our network made Acme Packet an easy choice to fulfill the requirements for our VoIP services."

"As businesses continue to migrate toward IP communications, a secure and flexible next-generation voice service is a key differentiator for service providers and one of the factors for success," stated Andy Ory, president and CEO of Acme Packet. "PAETEC is bringing its feature-rich iPATH offerings to market with this in mind and Acme Packet will play a key role in enabling that security and flexibility."
