By using Telesphere's private, nationwide MPLS network for Lync, businesses
with single or multi-site offices around a city, region or the country no
longer have the expense and complexity of PSTN gateways and the need to work
with multiple service providers. With the recent addition of points of
presence (POPs) in Atlanta and Chicago to its already extensive coast-to-coast
national network, Telesphere's network provides businesses nationwide with a
fast, cost-effective and low-complexity solution as they migrate to Microsoft
Lync and enjoy cloud and other unified communication features.

"Microsoft qualification gives CIOs and IT managers peace of mind that
Telesphere's private SIP trunking services are tested with Lync," said Sanjay
Srinivasan, Telesphere CTO. "This is the latest example of Telesphere's
commitment to providing businesses with advanced solutions."

"Lync gives enterprises a competitive advantage by enabling real-time,
intuitive communication and collaboration," said Laura Howard, Senior Director
of Lync Partner Engineering at Microsoft. "Telesphere's private SIP trunking
services gives enterprises a convenient, low-complexity option for extending
their Lync implementations across multiple facilities around the country."

With Telesphere serving as their single, nationwide provider of SIP
interconnection, enterprises that use Lync may eliminate the architectural and
operational complexity of multiple PSTN interconnects. In the process,
businesses can use Telesphere's private SIP trunking to access a wide range of
cloud-based communications services and advanced features to increase employee
productivity. This strategy lets enterprises maximize the value of their Lync
installation by overlaying features that provide additional levels of services
for business continuity (disaster recovery) and mobile integration.
