Tele Danmark to Deploy IP Fax Services with Open Port's IP LaunchPad(TM) / Telecom Provider Blazes New Territory with Next Generation IP Services

Open Port Technology(R) Inc. announced today that Tele Danmark will be one of the first service providers in Europe to deploy Open Port's new Internet services creation platform, IP LaunchPad. IP LaunchPad was announced in late March, and has been enjoying great acceptance in the marketplace with a number of other service providers. In addition, IP LaunchPad has recently won CTI Editors' Choice and Fax Direction's Analysts' Choice awards. Tele Danmark will offer a range of Fax-over-IP services to its customers later this year. Both enterprise and residential markets will be able to enjoy the increased functionality of these value-added fax services throughout Northern Europe. Both Tele Danmark and its subsidiaries will offer Fax-over- IP services to their customers. "Tele Danmark expects continued growth in both domestic and international activities by providing enhanced services that will save our customers' time and money. IP fax is one of the first enhanced services that both our wholesale and corporate customers have demanded. We will continue to expand our portfolio to include voice and unified messaging services as our customers dictate", Hans Moller, senior vice president, Tele Danmark Internet. "We're pleased that Tele Danmark views us as the vendor of choice to deliver the next generation fax applications that will drive their long-term revenue stream," said Cheryl Mayberry, Open Port's senior vice president and general manager of sales and marketing. "Our understanding of both the business and technology challenges service providers face allows us to offer a complete solution to help them become successful." IP LaunchPad is Open Port's Internet services creation platform -- "an operating system for IP applications." The platform is designed for network service providers, ISPs, resellers and local exchange carriers to deploy new IP services by easily snapping in applications. With the new carrier-class messaging platform, Open Port is able to offer IP services solutions beyond fax -- helping service providers to easily broaden their revenue base by rolling out new services. The first application suite available for the platform is IP LaunchPad Fax Suite, which lets service providers offer productivity-enhancing applications, such as PC faxing, web-based faxing, email-to-fax, and fax broadcasting. Industry analysts estimate that consumers and corporations can save from 30 to 70 percent in long distance charges by deploying fax-over-IP. Since its inception of just a few years ago, fax- over-IP has gained momentum. Industry analysts predict that the market for fax over IP will grow from $80 million in 1999 to $4 billion in 2002. Fax-over-IP is the first PSTN application that has migrated to the Internet. Many others, such as voice-over-IP and universal messaging, are expected to grow even faster. In fact, voice-over-IP is expected to grow from $60 million in 1999 to nearly $5 billion in 2003.
