BOSTON, MA. --- September 24, 2003 --- Hughes Software Systems (HSS),
a leading provider of global software outsourcing services, today
announced a co-development relationship with San Diego, CA based
communication company Wave Three Software, Inc.. Wave Three has
selected HSS' SIP Server Framework to power its platform for
multipoint SIP video conferencing, the SessionÔ Conference Server.

The HSS SIP Server Framework is fully compliant with the Internet
Engineering Task Force's RFC 3261 and a host of other drafts dictating
the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) standard. HSS launched the
product in 2002 and it subsequently won Internet Telephony's product
of the year award. The SIP Server Framework comes with built-in
standard SIP functionalities such as Call State Control Function
(CSCF), Proxy, Registrar, Redirect, Presence, B2B UA, and Location
Services. Its architectural flexibility ensures that it can be
configured to suit diverse customer requirements, while maintaining
carrier grade reliability and scalability. The server offers a rich
set of reusable components, which can be combined in a plug-and-play
fashion to implement new services. It is an ideal fit for core
routers, 3G-based and CSCF function-based Call Servers as well as
other SIP-based network elements.

"With rapidly evolving IETF standards, we sought a flexible and
scalable solution that would allow us to introduce innovative audio
and video services without any concerns about protocol and conference
call control changes," said Jim Schwartz, Senior Vice President of
Product Development, Wave Three Software. " HSS' SIP Server Framework
allows us to offer a robust, standards-compliant solution capable of
supporting the rapid development of new features to meet our customer

Manoranjan Mohapatra, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating
Officer, HSS commented: "Our SIP infrastructure is continuously
aligned with industry standards to deliver future-proof solutions. Our
customized services ensure product evolution in line with standard
protocols. We believe in setting market trends, and with the Wave
Three deployment, we have hit another landmark in our quest to stay at
the forefront of communication technology."

Wave Three's Session Conference Server Software is the industry's
first fully SIP-based solution offering multipoint Voice over IP,
Video over IP and data sharing capabilities. The Conference Server
includes three modules: Conference Management, which handles call
reservation and general network administration; Call Control, for
setting up and tearing down calls; and Multimedia, which pushes shared
images and files to users. The suite can run on a single Windows 2000
server or be spread over multiple locations, depending on network
configuration and the number of users being supported.

Wave Three currently sells the Session Conference Server to research,
higher education and medical customers as a low cost, high quality
alternative to existing hardware-based multipoint video conferencing
solutions. "Session is an appealing SIP-based application for video
and audio," states Christine Perey, President, Perey Research and
Consulting. "It is priced to be attractive to companies piloting new
rich media communications technologies."
