Cicero Networks named to the 2004 “pulver100”

An innovative Voice over Wireless IP solution which combines IP telephony with the persistent demand for mobility secures a pulver 100 for Cicero

Cicero Networks  today announced that it has been named to the 2004 “pulver 100” – which is the VoIP industry’s premiere listing of privately held growth companies that represent the future of the communications ecosystem.  Cicero Networks has been named to this prestigious list by leveraging the power IP telephony to deliver voice services over unlicensed wireless networks including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, at significantly lower costs than traditional cellular networks.

Using Cicero, subscribers can make and receive calls using standard wireless devices such as mobile smartphones, PDAs and laptops at home, in the office or at any public hotspot location. Cicero works by routing calls onto lower cost networks, such as the fixed-line PSTN or the Internet (VoIP), through broadband IP connections.

Cicero Networks offers significant benefits to operators who currently do not have a wireless voice offering, providing them with an easy entrée to this highly lucrative market. Using Cicero operators can increase voice revenues, reduce churn and significantly reduce their call termination costs. Cicero also delivers a highly compelling proposition to subscribers who can benefit from lower call charges and the ability to use a single device for calls over both wireless and fixed-line networks.

“2004 is the year VoIP arrived and it is truly set to revolutionize the communications landscape” commented Jeff Pulver, CEO of Pulver.com. “Innovative products such as the voice over wireless IP solution offered by Cicero Networks play a crucial role in the spread of IP communications and we’re very proud to include Cicero Networks in this year’s pulver 100”, he said.

“Voice over Wireless IP is a very exciting area which can deliver huge benefits to operators and subscribers alike. We have focused on delivering a real-world solution that works today, says Ross Brennan, CEO of Cicero Networks.  “We are delighted to be named to the Pulver 100, recognizing our contribution to extending the benefits of VoIP to the wireless world”.

Originally introduced in 2002, the pulver 100 features private companies in the communications sector that have substantial real-world deployments and enjoy significant growth rates.  The value chain characterized by pulver 100 differs from the vertically integrated telecom model of the last century, focusing more on a networking-industry model that espouses open interfaces, connectivity decoupled from services, and software decoupled from hardware.  For additional details on the 2004 pulver 100, please visit: http://www.pulver.com/pulver100/
