Joins Sun Microsystems SunTone Program;
IntraSwitch iPBX to be Certified for Quality of Service
Business Editors & High-Tech Writers
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 11, 2000--8x8, Inc., a leading manufacturer of digital telecommunication products, has announced that it has become a member of Sun Microsystems'
(Nasdaq:SUNW) SunTone(SM) Certification and Branding Program. As an applications member, 8x8 has committed to achieve SunTone Application Certification for its IntraSwitch(TM) iPBX Server Software.
A primary goal of the SunTone Program is to establish service-level guarantees for network-based services such as e-mail, e-commerce, enterprise applications and IP telephony. The SunTone
Program defines standards for guaranteed levels of performance, security, availability and uptime.
To help service providers choose software that meets SunTone requirements, Sun has expanded the SunTone program to include application software. The SunTone Architectural Council is defining a
specification that details application integration and transaction capabilities, scalability, security features, and the availability level required for applications to be branded with a logo that indicates that it complies with the SunTone specifications. "IP telephony services are an important part of Sun's vision for the future of the Internet," said Tim Dwyer, vice president of marketing and sales development for Sun's Network Service Provider Division. "I am happy to see that 8x8 has the same ambitions for QoS as we do - high-availability, high quality, easy scalability, customer control and excellent security. The SunTone Program will help them more easily achieve these goals."
"The standards that Sun is advocating for service reliability and scalability are exactly what we believe are required to guarantee customer acceptance of Internet services," said Dominique Pitteloud, 8x8's vice president of marketing. "Once customers understand the quality of service guarantee implicit in the SunTone logo, we believe that they will begin to prefer SunTone branded services and sites over
other alternatives. We hope to have our IntraSwitch iPBX SunTone certified because it will be an advantage to the service providers that use our products to offer iPBX hosting services."

Implements Session Initiation Protocol for Internet Telephony;
IntraSwitch iPBX Becomes First Software PBX to Support SIP
Business Editors/Technology Writers
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 23, 1999--8x8 (Nasdaq:EGHT), a leading manufacturer of digital telecommunication products, has endorsed the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for making telephone calls over Internet protocol (IP) networks.
SIP will allow 8x8's IntraSwitch(TM) iPBX (Internet private branch exchange) software to interoperate with gateways, terminals and softswitches from other vendors.
The announcement comes after 8x8 successfully tested the IntraSwitch iPBX with SIP-compatible gateways and phones from Cisco Systems, Mediatrix Peripherals, Nortel Networks, Nuera Communications, Pingtel Corporation and 3Com Corporation recently at an industry-wide
SIP interoperability test event hosted by Ericsson in Dallas, Texas. SIP became an official standard of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in March 1999 and has gained significant support among telecom equipment vendors, carriers, CLECs, cable operators and web-based voice chat providers.
8x8's IntraSwitch iPBX software provides the switching intelligence for a hosted iPBX system: it sets up and routes calls, interfaces with voice mail systems and interactive voice response (IVR) systems, and provides a link to enterprise computing systems to allow computer/telephony integration (CTI). The IntraSwitch iPBX is the first software PBX to implement Sun Microsystems' Java Telephony
Applications Programming Interface (JTAPI), a CTI interface that allows computers to efficiently control telephone switches.
iPBX hosting is a new concept pioneered by 8x8 wherein telephone service providers such as competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) and Internet service providers (ISPs) can provide small- and medium-sized businesses with PBX functionality over IP networks. This arrangement eliminates the need for businesses to manage a complex private telephone system while providing the flexibility and customization capability that businesses need to be competitive. "iPBX-hosting" is similar in concept to application hosting services that allow businesses to outsource email operations, Web site hosting and e-commerce implementations as services.
Incorporating SIP support into the IntraSwitch iPBX allows it to interoperate with gateways to the public switched telephone network (PSTN), telephones and other softswitches that support the SIP
standard. Interoperability between equipment from multiple vendors is necessary to allow IP telephone networks to be rapidly and cost effectively deployed. "With its easy-to-implement character and robustness, we believe that SIP is the protocol of choice for PSTN gateways and network
application servers for conferencing, voice mail and the like," said Frederic Artru, general manager of 8x8's network software division. "We look forward to continued development and support of this
important new standard in our multi-protocol hosted iPBX."
