Digital Telecommunications, Inc. Selects Lucent Technologies and Dynavar Corporation to roll out VoIP Services


DTI to deploy Lucent Compact Switch as part of end-to-end network solution to enable VoIP services

MAY 04, 2006, MURRAY HILL, N.J. – Lucent Technologies (NYSE:LU) and Dynavar Corporation, an accredited Lucent Sales Business Partner, today announced a contract with Digital Telecommunications, Inc. (DTI), a telecommunications service provider based in Winona, Minn., for equipment from Lucent’s Accelerate™ Next Generation Communications Solutions that will enable DTI to deliver advanced integrated services to its business and residential customers.

DTI is a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) that provides local and long distance telephone service, Internet access and data solutions to business and residential customers throughout Minnesota, Iowa and parts of Wisconsin. Lucent’s solution will enable DTI to grow its network and cost-effectively offer advanced next-generation services such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) while maintaining its ability to provide traditional telephone service.

Under the agreement, DTI will deploy a complete network solution including the Lucent Compact Switch and the PacketStar® PSAX Multiservice Media Gateway, in addition to select equipment from Lucent’s Stinger® family of products. Lucent’s VoIP solution will enable DTI to migrate toward a facilities-based platform, reducing operating costs and creating additional revenue opportunities.

Dynavar will provide the network engineering, integration and deployment services for the installation. Lucent Worldwide Services will provide maintenance.

“To satisfy customer demand and maintain our competitive edge, we needed a solution that would allow us to offer our customers advanced new services in a timely manner, with no risk of sacrificing quality,” said Dan Terek, president, Digital Telecommunications, Inc. “Lucent’s solution, with support from Dynavar, allows us to roll out exciting new features to both new and existing subscribers, and comes from a partnership we trust in.”

“DTI’s deployment of the Lucent-Dynavar solution will allow them to deliver a more cost-effective and better managed service to their customers,” said Sean MacNeill, president and chief operating officer of Dynavar Corporation. “By combining the Lucent Compact Switch, PSAX and Stinger® products, DTI has a smooth migration path to a facilities-based platform.”

“By partnering with Dynavar, we were able to offer DTI a compelling end-to-end solution that resolved their needs in a cost-effective manner, as well as met the needs of their customers,” said Gerry Cafaro, vice president of sales for Lucent Technologies. “The Lucent Compact Switch was a key part of the solution for DTI, as it offers them the flexibility they need to succeed in today’s competitive market, and also allows for the addition of new advanced services as they become available in the future.”

The Lucent switch also can serve as a building block for carriers that choose to migrate to an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network to offer blended lifestyle services.

The Lucent Compact Switch can support from as few as 1,000 subscribers to more than 100,000 subscribers on a single integrated platform. Service providers can deploy the switch for end-office (Class 5) and tandem (Class 4) applications to replace an existing switch or as an addition to the network. In addition to providing VoIP, Internet off-load and gateway mobile switching center features, the compact switch also offers CALEA and E911 capabilities.
