NEW YORK, March 13, 2000 - Teltran International (OTC BB: TLTG.ob) announced today they have chosen Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) carrier-grade solutions to increase quality, capacity and reliability of Teltran's VoIP network and products. Teltran will leverage Cisco's carrier class Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) gateways as the foundation for their company's VoIP network, and Cisco will be their preferred provider of networking hardware.

"Teltran's use of Cisco solutions to enhance their VoIP network will enable them to deliver superior voice quality as they continue to build out their network," said Alistair Woodman, Director of Marketing for Cisco's Packet Telephony Division. "We are truly happy to be working with Teltran as they develop and deploy their New World network for Voice over IP services."

Byron Lerner, President and CEO of Teltran International said, "The Cisco voice gateways will handle the origination and termination of long distance phone calls -- increasing overall quality, system capacity and reliability." Mr. Lerner adds, "Utilizing Cisco Systems VoIP gateways brings three key benefits to Teltran. Cisco brings us the experience of proven professionals and networking technology, a high level of service and value and a unique outlook into the future potential growth of networking."

"The value of strategic relationships with vendors such as Cisco enables Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSP) like Teltran to expand their breadth of communications to all corners of the world while enabling any business, large or small, to find a complimentary Cisco product that meets any budget without compromising quality," adds Melanie Gordon, Director of Marketing for Teltran International.

Since it began originating and terminating VoIP traffic in 1998, Teltran International has terminated millions of minutes worldwide for their customers, telecom partners and affiliates. Working with Cisco will be an integral part of Teltran's plans to continue to expand its international network throughout 2000 and beyond, with a particular emphasis on the development of emerging markets in Africa and Asia.
