HUAWEI AND SPIRIT DSP MARK FIVE YEARS OF FRUITFUL COOPERATION

SPIRIT DSP, the world's #1 voice and video over IP engines provider serving more than 1 billion users in 100+ countries, announced today five years of non-stop partnership with Huawei, the world's largest telecommunications equipment provider. Huawei's products and services are deployed in over 100 countries and serve 45 of the world's top 50 telecom operators, as well as one third of the world's population.

Since November 2007, several contracts were signed between the two companies, including SPIRIT’s voice engine and video engine licensed by Huawei for PCs and mobile platforms, including Windows, MacOS, iOS and Android. As a result, today SPIRIT’s voice and video engines are part of Huawei’s software and hardware products, which are used worldwide by dozens of national telcos, serving totally more than 100 million users.

In 2007, Huawei licensed SPIRIT's TeamSpirit® Voice Engine PC to offer the highest quality PC VoIP solution to its operator and service provider customers. At the Huawei IMS Summit, which took place in Beijing during the PT/EXPO 2007, Huawei listed SPIRIT among its key partners, along with IBM, HP, Broadsoft and about 10 other major players of the global telecom industry.

Later Huawei has extended its license with SPIRIT for HD voice and video several times. Huawei uses SPIRIT's TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine PC in Huawei's IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem), Unified Communications (UC) and Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) solutions for carriers. Huawei also extended its license with SPIRIT for wideband Mobile VoIP (voice over IP) and video calling.

Today, SPIRIT and Huawei continue to cooperate tightly on a day-to-day basis on voice and video over IP-based networks. Huawei continues to expand its customer base, including products designed for telcos' using TeamSpirit engines for mobile and PC.

"LTE-networks bring communications to new level, and require software that can cope with new challenges and complexity of offering cross-platform IP communications," said SPIRIT's Chairman Andrew Sviridenko. "We continue to develop innovative software products for voice and video over IP-networks expected by our valued telco customers, and this ongoing relationship with Huawei underscores the importance that telcos around the world are now placing on delivering HD voice and video in their VVoIP services."
