TANDBERG Integrates Video Solutions with Nortel and Other Leading IP-based Network Environments in VoiceCon 2006 Technology Demonstrations


With Key Alliance Partners, TANDBERG Brings Video to Any Network Environment for Stronger Enterprise Collaboration

NEW YORK and ORLANDO, Fla., March 6, 2006 -- TANDBERG® (OSLO: TAA.OL), a global leader in visual communication, will demonstrate its videoconferencing solutions integrated with network environments from new partner Nortel and other technology leaders at VoiceCon Spring 2006, March 6-9 in Orlando. The ability to seamlessly incorporate TANDBERG video into any network environment, regardless of protocol, is helping organizations to spur more dynamic “face-to-face” collaboration across their enterprise and throughout their supply chains.

The TANDBERG demonstrations at booth #523 will showcase seamlessly integrated video with a leading workplace environment from Nortel. Nortel today named TANDBERG a Developer Partner within its Enterprise Video Program for going “above and beyond” in providing advanced functionality and applications. In addition, TANDBERG will demonstrate video solutions within environments from established partners Cisco Systems, Microsoft and IBM.

“Converged IP-based enterprise networks are a marketplace reality today,” said Fredrik Halvorsen, TANDBERG Chief Executive Officer. “TANDBERG’s capacity to seamlessly incorporate video into these converged environments enables organizations to fully leverage their network investment, while enhancing productivity and bottom-line revenue. Our demos will give VoiceCon attendees the chance to experience how a fully-integrated IP network can help people share multimedia information and solve problems more quickly through face-to-face interaction.”

TANDBERG technology demonstrations include:

Nortel – TANDBERG integration with the Nortel MCS 5100 Multimedia Communication Server enables users to easily launch video calls at the click of a button. TANDBERG video endpoints are certified to support Nortel’s Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), the Internet standard for initiating interactive communication sessions that include video, voice, instant messaging, and web conferencing.
Cisco -- TANDBERG integration with Cisco® CallManager provides business-quality video systems for the desktop and office that make video calls as simple to initiate as a phone call. TANDBERG solutions integrate with Cisco CallManager 4.0 (and higher) and provide users the same softkey functionality as a Cisco IP telephone (i.e., call forward, call hold and call transfer).
Microsoft -- TANDBERG integration with Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 and Office Communicator provide users with a single portal for audio, e-mail, IM, web and video collaboration. With the TANDBERG-Microsoft solution, users can launch video calls from SIP/H.323/H.320 video appliances. In addition, TANDBERG integration includes multipoint support for Office Communicator and integration with Microsoft Live Meeting for web conferencing.
IBM – IBM® and TANDBERG leverage existing workplace tools Lotus Notes® and Lotus Sametime® to easily schedule and conduct video calls and launch impromptu video conversations with the click of a button. The integration reduces cost-of-ownership by providing real-time collaboration through a single solution.
At VoiceCon, on Monday, March 6, TANDBERG will conduct a product briefing session that demonstrates how TANDBERG integrates video into a company’s SIP, SCCP and H.323 environments, allowing the company to maximize its network investment. The briefing will be held at 5 p.m. in Room 2.
