LiteScape Adds New Capabilities to Facilitate Enterprise-Wide Communications Via IP Telephony

OnCast(TM) Directory Helps Companies Securely Take Advantage of Existing Directories Across Multiple Sites and Domains Via IP Phones; Solution Being Showcased at DEMOfall 2005 Event

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., DEMOfall 2005, Sept. 19 /-- LiteScape Technologies, Inc. (, today introduced OnCast(TM) Directory, a new solution that allows secure access to diverse network directories for interactive voice, text and image collaboration and broadcasts from IP telephones. OnCast Directory provides the extensibility, mobility, enhanced security, and personalization of services that large companies are coming to expect from next generation IP networks, and enables companies to take full advantage of recently-deployed IP telephony systems. OnCast Directory, available immediately, is being showcased and launched this week in conjunction with LiteScape's participation at the prestigious DEMOfall 2005 Conference.

Today's converged IP systems typically allow users to connect to internal databases, yet lack the ability to utilize existing personal or corporate directories from IP phones. Additionally, most businesses require reliable and consistent security features to deploy enterprise-wide IP telephony solutions. OnCast Directory, combined with LiteScape's new Secure Profile Management capabilities, answers both of these issues by providing secure, authenticated and personalized access to calling, conferencing and broadcasting across the enterprise.

OnCast Directory facilitates the secure creation and distribution of content-rich, enterprise-specific broadcasts, launches conferences calls, and utilizes IP phones to lookup profile information and other timely content from a variety of sources. In addition, by leveraging authentication methods such as passwords, RFID cards and biometrics, users can move from site to site and immediately access their personal data to quickly broadcast collaborative messages and engage in IP-based communications. By providing phones with real-time access to enterprise-wide indexes, OnCast Directory streamlines everyday business processes and enhances the overall productivity of large, mobile enterprises, while taking maximum advantage of investments in IP infrastructure.

"OnCast Directory brings to market for the first time an enhanced collaboration solution that provide easy access to enterprise directories through an IP phone, securely and in real-time," said Farzad Naimi, co-founder and CEO of LiteScape. "Additionally, the new security and authentication features allow our customers to confidently deploy these advanced IP software solutions across the entire company. OnCast Directory serves as a rich complement to our suite of IP telephony applications, building upon our mission of maximizing the value companies derive from their IP investments."

OnCast Directory is built on LiteScape's powerful and scalable Multi-modal Application Platform(TM) (MAP), which enables the real-time management of interactive sessions comprised of voice, data, and image streams that can be coordinated and simultaneously delivered to various IP phones and devices.

Key benefits of OnCast Directory include:
-- Enhanced security -- Securely access content and directories to place calls, launch conferences, send broadcasts and lookup user profiles across multiple sites and domains from any IP phone. It also allows for the controlled access to services and directories by defining hierarchical and user level service access policies;
-- Leverage pre-existing authentication mechanisms -- The use of card-readers (RFID/magnetic), passwords and biometrics increases the security of data transfers and simplifies access to directory services;
-- Simplify collaboration -- With the push of a single button, users can invite and join participants to on-demand conferences, automating and simplifying what is normally a cumbersome process. Users can create shortcuts for any conference or broadcast to speed up future communications using speed-dial features;
-- Significant cost savings -- Lowers the cost of conference calls by using existing yet under-utilized conferencing resources within the enterprise and saves time by re-using existing directories for dialing, conferencing and broadcasting.

LiteScape is a certified partner of both Cisco and Avaya, and is already relied on by dozens of companies and organizations in a broad array of industry segments to increase the value of enterprise-wide VoIP deployments.
