Details

AudioCodes, a leading provider of solutions that enable enterprises and
service providers to transition to all-IP voice networks, today announced the
expansion of its One Voice offering with a new cloud-based enterprise mobility
solution suite for business customers. The solution includes mobile clients
tightly coupled with a delivery platform for secure connectivity, management
and monitoring and enables service providers to offer their business customers
"anywhere, anytime, any device" mobile communications services over data
networks while reducing the total cost of ownership.

The first applications in the Enterprise Mobility solution suite include
MobilityPlus Business Edition (BE) and VocaNOM. MobilityPlus BE is based on
home-grown technologies, which include a proven Voice Engine and connectivity
to social networks and the public cloud. The application leverages AudioCodes'
existing tier one service provider customers for over-the-top (OTT)
applications including Bezeq, Vonage, GVT, Telefonica Argentina, Liberty
Global and others who are using the MobilityPlus Consumer Edition (CE),
formerly known as VMAS. VocaNOM leverages the success of AudioCodes voice
recognition technology, which has been installed during the past 18 months in
tens of large Israeli enterprises.

The MobilityPlus BE enables employees of a customer to communicate with their
colleagues seamlessly from their smartphone devices by initiating VoIP calls
over Wi-Fi and cellular data networks. Connecting with the enterprise's PBX or
IP-PBX, the application allows enterprises to reduce their cellular
communications charges and streamline mobile collaboration between their
employees through features such as advanced dialing, smart contacts, enhanced
presence, instant messaging and one-number reach. MobilityPlus BE supports
high-definition voice quality, utilizes the most popular wideband coders such
as Opus and Silk and leverages AudioCodes SBC products and core voice engine
technologies to ensure end-to-end HD VoIP quality experience.Deployed as an
add-on to the existing IP-PBX or PBXs of a business customer, the solution
eliminates the need for costly replacement of equipment.

VocaNOM, a speech-enabled directory search and dial solution, allows mobile or
office callers to state the name of the person or department they wish to call
and be automatically transferred to the requested party, thus, relieving the
hassle of searching for phone numbers or waiting to speak to an operator.

"The communications industry is going through a transition driven by
innovative applications that redefine the use of mobile services for business
employees," said Diane Myers, Principal Analyst, VoIP and IMS at Infonetics.
"While service providers face revenue pressure and increased use of OTT
services, cloud-based communications solutions, like Enterprise Mobility of
AudioCodes, offer service providers a solution that embraces the adoption of
mobile VoIP OTT services under their own brand."

"One Voice for Enterprise Mobility allows enterprises to enhance their
existing telephony systems with a mobility solution that increases employee
accessibility and productivity, while benefitting from outstanding management
and provisioning tools," commented Shabtai Adlersberg, President and Chief
Executive Officer of AudioCodes. "Furthermore, the cloud service
implementation allows hosters to quickly roll out new services to the
market.As demand for these services increases, they can choose to either
expand the service in the cloud or migrate it to their own data center."

AudioCodes will be exhibiting the new solution suite at Mobile World Congress
between the 24^th and 27^th of February, and is scheduling meetings on site,
Booth #9, Section #5E81 in Hall 5.
