LINDON, Utah -- June 25, 2013

Alianza, the leader in cloud voice platforms, announced today that ViaSat Inc.
has selected the company’s VoIP solution to power ViaSat’s newly launched
Exede® Voice service. ViaSat turned to Alianza’s turnkey wholesale solution to
successfully address market timing, product and cost requirements. Alianza’s
software-as-a-service (SaaS) model applied to wholesale voice helps enable
service providers to maximize voice profitability and minimize risk.

ViaSat chose Alianza’s cloud voice platform after an extensive evaluation of
voice delivery options. Alianza provided a superior time to market, voice
quality, operational control and business case for ViaSat’s new voice service.
ViaSat made extensive use of Alianza’s application programming interface (API)
to integrate the service administration, customer care and reporting functions
into its back-office systems, resulting in significantly less time and
resources required to manage and scale Exede Voice.

“At ViaSat, our engineers and technical team focused on optimizing every point
in the Exede network to deliver superior call quality,” said Lisa Scalpone,
vice president, Satellite Services. “Alianza will enable us to effectively
manage and scale our back-office functions. Together, these capabilities are
the foundation of an end-to-end customer experience that delivers quality,
value and convenience.”

Powered by the ViaSat-1 satellite, ViaSat’s high-speed Exede Internet serves
approximately 300,000 subscribers and covers about 80 percent of the U.S.
population. Launched June 17, Exede Voice is the first satellite VoIP
residential telephone service introduced in the U.S.

“With an offer including Exede Voice, Internet and satellite television,
ViaSat is delivering a triple-play communications and entertainment service
bundle for consumers,” said Brian Beutler, CEO and co-founder of Alianza. “Our
cloud voice platform provides ViaSat with the right capabilities at a cost
that makes clear business sense.”
