Kabel Deutschland Launches Digital Telephony Over Cable With
Cisco IP Next Generation Network Technology

MUNICH, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 31, 2005--Cisco Systems(R)
(Nasdaq:CSCO) today announced that Kabel Deutschland (KDG), Europe's
largest cable operator, has implemented Cisco Internet Protocol
Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) solution to deliver converged voice,
video and data, or "Triple Play," services over its cable broadband
network serving the city of Leipzig.

The new converged IP NGN infrastructure is supporting the launch of
KDG's "Kabel Phone" service, giving customers access to digital
telephony services in addition to television, radio and Internet
services over the same cable broadband connection. KDG customers
participating in the Leipzig pilot project have been able to make
digital telephone calls over a cable connection instead of the normal
telephone connection since April 1 this year. The KDG "Kabel Phone"
service is scheduled to be available in up to fifteen more cities,
including Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Dresden and Koblenz, by the fourth
quarter this year.
