APTOS, Calif., October 2, 2000 - Engage Communication, Inc. delivers
the IPTube-E1 to an international carrier. The IPTube-E1
encapsulates full and fractional E1 circuits, along with their framing
and signaling bits, into IP packets. The IPTubes E1
Over IP connection provides for the transparent interconnection
of PBXs, Telecom Switches and E1 based communication systems via

switches. The IPTube-E1 provides enterprises with the ability to
interconnect their existing phone systems over flexible bandwidth
lines that are used to carry data, voice, and video. Toll charges
assessed by long distance and local carriers are eliminated by transporting
voice and fax traffic across the enterprise intranet, LAN, metropolitan-area
network (MAN),WAN or Wireless Ethernet.

a customers phone systems over their Internet connection.
The back hauled DS0s are connected to the CLECs phone switch for
connection to the Public Switched Telephone Networks. Competitive
Local Exchange Carriers are able to provide customers with a very
economical alternative to the local Phone Company since the Local
Loop charges are consolidated.
The IPTube-E1 has a E1 interface that connects directly to the E1/DS1
interface of Phone Systems or E1 Data Communication Equipment. An
Ethernet interface connects to the LAN.
The IPTube-E1C detects idle/redundant data
within each DS0 resulting in a 40 to 1 bandwidth savings. VoIP WAN
bandwidth is not consumed by silent voice circuits.
