SHOUT2500 Helps Deliver Complete Business and Residential Voice Over
IP Over Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial Cable in Central Michigan

FREMONT, Calif. and PORTSMOUTH, N.H., April 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/
-- (NYSE: NWK), a global supplier of adaptive broadband
technology, and Pannaway Technologies, Inc., designers and developers
of converged broadband voice, video and data platforms, jointly
announced today that Lennon Telephone Company, established in 1918 and
under its current ownership since 1946, has selected's
SHOUT2500, a highly integrated IP telephony provisioning platform
delivering unprecedented cost-performance metrics, for delivery of
Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) services to business and
residential customers within their local exchange.

Lennon Telephone and its subsidiaries will use the SHOUT2500 as a VoIP
delivery platform to deliver low cost SIP (Session Initiation
Protocol) based telephone features and services to its business and
residential customers. SIP is the Internet signaling standard that
enables carriers to deliver a wide variety of services through the
Internet, such as telephone service, instant messaging, IP
conferencing, and presence management. Additionally, Lennon Telephone
will be able to use SHOUT to convert Internet-based calls to the
public telephone network (VoIP to PSTN) and vice versa, as well as
interconnect with legacy H.323 IP networks.

Pannaway's Service Convergence Network (SCN(TM)) is a highly
manageable end-to-end all IP solution that enables telcos to deliver
high quality voice, video and data services over a single broadband
connection. At the heart of the SCN, is Pannaway's Call Control
Manager (CCM(TM)) which is a SIP registration server, proxy server,
feature server and billing mediation platform that routes all calls,
provides advanced CLASS features and delivers billing information for
the SCN.

"The solution enables significant and immediate cost
savings through the use of IP technology, as well as rapid development
of new features and services. For example, with this solution in
place, we are in a position to deliver traditional voice services via
our hybrid fiber-coax system," said Tom Bowden, Vice President of
Lennon Telephone. "Additionally, the integration of SIP and legacy
signaling protocols like H.323 and SS7 in a single platform, along
with the SHOUT platform's enhanced GUI based network configuration and
management tools, will allow us to quickly deliver these services to
our customers."
