NMS Targets South Asia, Australia, New Zealand with Hagemeyer

8/5/2003 - NMS Communications (NASDAQ: NMSS), trusted supplier of communications products and services, has expanded its partnership with Hagemeyer Asia Pacific to capture new opportunities generated by the rapid adoption of innovative and personalized communications services in the South Asian, Australian and New Zealand telecom markets.

To meet the demand from carriers and enterprises deploying new communications applications and services, Hagemeyer Communications, a newly established unit of Dutch conglomerate Hagemeyer NV, will market and support sophisticated products and technologies from NMS. In addition to representing NMS' building blocks technologies, this new division, previously known as Mayer Krieg Embedded Computing, will also provide marketing, sales and technical support for NMS' system level products. Included in the expanded offerings are voice quality and echo cancellation systems, which are deployed in central offices and mobile switching centers (MSCs) to provide consistently clear voice quality to wireless and wireline subscribers worldwide. These technology-leading products connect to the widest variety of network interfaces, offer the highest density at the lowest cost, and deliver highest quality voice during mobile conversations even in the noisiest settings by using the patented Studio Sound software.

Additionally, in response to the growing demand for innovative personalized mobile communication services, under the expanded partnership, Hagemeyer will also market MyCaller, the new service that lets subscribers select original recordings of popular music, sounds, and celebrity voices for callers to hear in place of the conventional ringback tone.

"Hagemeyer Communications has been launched specifically to satisfy the growing demand in the region for NMS' high performance products and technologies," said Bob Crabbe, CEO of Hagemeyer Asia Pacific Electronics. "We see tremendous opportunity here and will work on behalf of NMS Communications to ensure that communication solution developers and carriers get their products and services to market faster and at lower cost."

We are proud to partner with Hagemeyer in this exciting endeavor," said Critz Chan, vice president and general manager, Asia, NMS Communications.
