AudioCodes and Gigaset Bring IP DECT Mobility to Microsoft Lync

Market Leaders Align to Deliver the Productivity Benefits of Lync to Campus
Employees on the Move

LOD, Israel, Sept. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AudioCodes (Nasdaq:AUDC), a
leading provider of converged voice solutions that enable enterprises and
service providers to transition to all-IP voice networks, today announced a
cooperation with Gigaset Communications GmbH, a European market leader. The
AudioCodes SIP Phone Support (SPS) software, which enhances AudioCodes
Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBC) and Gateways, connects the
GigaSet pro N720 IP DECT Multicell System to Lync servers, extending unified
communications as users move about the campus and office.

AudioCodes and Gigaset performed comprehensive testing to validate the
connectivity of Gigaset pro products through AudioCodes E-SBC into Microsoft
Lync Servers. The resulting enhanced productivity networking solution delivers
essential business communication features such as basic calls, call hold, call
forward and transfer, directory lookup, base station roaming and handover.
Resellers and System Integration business partners can now further enjoy a
simplified, pre-qualified enhancement to the AudioCodes One Voice for Lync
comprehensive portfolio of products and services.

"Microsoft Lync offers a compelling solution for Unified Communications and
Collaboration (UCC). By combining the AudioCodes One Voice for Lync offering
and the Gigaset N720 IP DECT Multicell Solution, UCC and Enterprise cordless
voice come together as an integrated solution," said Hans Juergen Huber, SVP,
Business Customers at Gigaset. "Our Gigaset Partner Network benefits from
these possibilities. AudioCodes is one of the largest Lync enablers in the
world. As many of our resellers already sell AudioCodes systems, the link
between them and Gigaset pro was easily made. We are now able to make Lync
cordless and available at anytime and anywhere in and around any company."

"Our cooperation with Gigaset naturally enhances our One Voice for Lync
offering by allowing enterprise users to go cordless," commented Nimrod
Borovsky, VP Unified Communications, at AudioCodes. "Our business partners are
constantly looking to increase the innovations they offer to their customers
as Microsoft Lync adoption continues to rise. We are pleased to collaborate
with Gigaset on this exciting initiative."
