NEW YORK -- November 06, 2012

ETHERNET EXPO, BOOTH #227 – Amartus, a developer of next-generation service
delivery solutions for telecommunications, today announced that Transition
Networks, a wholly owned subsidiary of Communications Systems, Inc.
(NASDAQ-GM: JCS), has chosen the Amartus Chameleon OS™ platform for its new
Converge™ Element and Service Management System.

Chameleon OS™ is a revolutionary management platform that enables service
providers to rapidly deploy and operate equipment vendor network solutions. It
delivers all of the common service and resource management functions needed
for the smooth delivery of end to end network services.

The Transition Networks Converge™ EMS is a standards-based, fully integrated
service and resource manager for MEF CE 2.0 services. It supports the
full-service life cycle including design, deployment and operation of
end-to-end CE 2.0 services and devices, and delivers a comprehensive top-down,
service-centric experience well beyond that offered by traditional vendor
management systems.

“CE 2.0 is representative of a broad change in the market toward more flexible
and on-demand network services, and Chameleon OS enables companies like
Transition Networks to fast track their management system roadmap to support
delivery of these services,” said Michael Kearns, Chief Executive Officer at
Amartus. “We’re excited to be a part of the Converge™ EMS and look forward to
a long partnership with Transition Networks.”

“The launch of Converge™ EMS gives Transition Networks a unique competitive
advantage in delivering a complete CE 2.0 solution to service providers,” said
Kevin Faulds, Director of Product Management at Transition Networks. “The
feature set and time-to-market advantage that the Chameleon OS brought to the
development of Converge™ EMS has been critical to its successful launch.”

Chameleon OS Technical Highlights

Chameleon OS is a next-generation, carrier-grade run-time programmable
management platform that communications service providers and equipment
vendors can leverage to quickly build next-generation OSS and other management
solutions, including service managers, network managers, element managers,
test managers, B-OSS gateways, customer self-service portals and more.

It is the first platform of its kind that eliminates the ‘hardwiring’ inherent
in traditional management solutions. This is achieved by enabling advanced
management applications to be built using dynamic run-time programmable
configuration that is independent of the core management platform. It combines
a rapid run-time programmable and model driven development process, a dynamic
carrier-grade platform, a comprehensive set of pre-integrated management
modules and dynamically rendered open APIs for use by external applications.
The result is significantly reduced lead-time for new feature rollout and
therefore faster time to market with new services and technologies.

Most importantly for equipment vendors, Chameleon OS frees platform teams to
focus on delivering unique, differentiated management solutions in highly
compressed timeframes (weeks or months instead of years).
