company’s open voip peering service recognized for outstanding innovation

SAN JOSE, CALIF. (May 28, 2009) - Virtual PBX announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has honored Virtual PBX’s Open VoIP Peering with a 2008 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.

Virtual PBX is the first hosted PBX company to offer an Open VoIP Peering option, which is ideal for users who already have VoIP phones or want to reap the cost benefits of moving to VoIP without being limited to proprietary, single-vendor solutions. The service opens up greater opportunities for businesses that need the flexibility to mix-and-match a VoIP network with any SIP-compliant phone. This truly “blended” service gives businesses unprecedented flexibility as they can choose to use a VoIP network for cost savings or standard phone lines for better call quality. Open VoIP Peering provides the “make or break” difference needed in today’s challenging economic times.

“Our customers have come to rely on Virtual PBX for both value and innovation, and we are always looking for ways to help them be more successful,” said Paul Hammond, president and CEO of Virtual PBX. “We are pleased that TMC has recognized our commitment to high-quality offerings, and Virtual PBX Open VoIP Peering is a great example of how we work with our users to provide the flexible solutions needed for today’s work environment.”

“Virtual PBX has been recognized with a 2008 Product of the Year Award for their excellence in the advancement of voice communications,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC president and group editor-in-chief, “Virtual PBX has proven they are committed to quality and excellence in solutions that benefit the customer experience as well as ROI for the companies that use them. I am pleased to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”

The Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the vision, leadership and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of the prestigious award. The most innovative products and services brought to market in 2008 were selected as recipients of this year’s Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for their groundbreaking achievement.

The 2008 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award winners can be found on the INTERNET TELEPHONY and Customer Interaction Solutions Web site.
