MCI Lands Boeing With Audioconferencing Deal


Boeing to Utilize MCI’s Audioconferencing Services to Speed Collaboration Among Employees Worldwide

ASHBURN, Va., November 15, 2005-MCI, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCIP) today announced that it has been selected by The Boeing Company to connect its employees worldwide via MCI’s audioconferencing services. Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, Boeing will use MCI’s suite of scheduled and reservationless audio teleconferencing tools to conduct meetings any time, anywhere.

MCI’s audioconferencing service will enhance collaboration among Boeing’s worldwide employees and provide an essential line of communication critical to conducting business. MCI will provide an IP and traditional PSTN solution that enables Boeing to lower its total cost of ownership, while taking advantage of best-of-breed technology. The IP enablement positions Boeing to expand capabilities as future growth and demand warrant.

“MCI’s portfolio of audioconferencing services streamline communications in today’s demanding global business environment,” said Blair Crump, MCI senior vice president of Global Accounts. “MCI’s conferencing tools help companies like Boeing span the boundaries of time and space to get business done.”

MCI’s advanced audioconferencing features, such as tape playback and transcription, call management services and technical assistance, enable companies to conduct business more cost-effectively and disseminate information rapidly across a large geographic area. With tailored meeting options, MCI’s audioconferencing services create an efficient virtual collaboration environment.

Boeing will benefit from MCI’s ability to deliver local access numbers whether employees are located in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific or the United States. For example, a call hosted in Germany has the same local access options available on a single conference bridge as a call from other international bridging locations.

MCI is the world’s largest provider of conferencing services, according to TeleSpan Publishing. Its products include audio, video and Web conferencing and related streaming services, which help organizations worldwide to meet more productively without the time and costs associated with business travel.
