APTOS, Calif., June 27, 2000 - Engage Communication, Inc. delivers
the IPTube-T1 to an international carrier. The IPTube-T1
encapsulates full and fractional T1 circuits, along with their framing
and signaling bits, into IP packets. The IPTubes T1
Over IP connection provides for the transparent interconnection
of PBXs, Telecom Switches and T1 based communication systems via
LANs, WANs, MANs, and IP based satellite links.
Businesses incur significant recurring monthly costs for rigid-bandwidth
leased lines used purely for the interconnection of PBXs and telecom
switches. The IPTube-T1 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), or WAN.
The IPTube-T1 provides CLECs with a way to back haul a T1 DS0s from
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

The IPTube-T1 has a T1 interface that connects directly to the T1/DS1
interface of Phone Systems or T1 Data Communication Equipment. An
Ethernet interface connects to the LAN. An optional Synchronous
Serial WAN interface connects to Data Communication equipment such
as ADSL, SDSL, and T1/FT1.
The IPTube-T1 detects idle/redundant data within each DS0 resulting
in a 56 to 1 bandwidth savings. VoIP WAN bandwidth is not consumed
by silent voice circuits.
