SANTA CLARA, CA - July 3, 2001 - Dialpad Communications, Inc., the market leader in IP telephony, today announced that Cisco Systems, Inc, the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet, has selected the company for their new IP Telephony Services designation within the Cisco Powered Network Program. The new program was created for service provider customers that build and deliver telephony-oriented services based on Cisco Internet Protocol (IP) networking products and solutions. Dialpad uses the termination services of Cisco VoIP service provider customers to provide carrier-grade VoIP service to its customers, and additionally, met the criteria for selection by maintaining high levels of network quality and customer satisfaction.

"We are proud to be one of the first companies selected by Cisco Systems to join the IP Telephony Services portion of the program," said Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Dialpad. "We look forward to continuing our relationship with Cisco to both raise the visibility of VoIP as well as work together to refine our offerings for both consumers and businesses."

"Dialpad has earned the benefits of this new IP Telephony Services designation by significantly increasing the number of VoIP minutes that travel through our service provider customer networks," said Kevin Outcalt, senior director of marketing at Cisco. "By offering reliable and secure VoIP services to their end user customers, Dialpad has promoted the value of packet telephony, further increasing demand and generating profits for service providers."

Since its launch in October of 1999, Dialpad has taken a leadership position in the Internet telephony industry with domestic and international VoIP services. These include the recently announced Dialpad Access, the company's IP phone platform that allows customers to use existing broadband connections to turn any standard phone into an IP phone, Dialpad Prepaid Phone Cards and the company's PC-to-Phone service Dialpad World.
