  1. 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."
