Collaborations Foster Development of Innovative, Third-Party Voice Over IP
Applications

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., January 3, 2000 * Clarent® Corporation (Nasdaq:
CLRN),
a leading provider of Internet Protocol (IP) communications solutions,
today
continued its active program of fostering the development of IP-based
communications applications by announcing new relationships with
application
software developers Java City Technologies, and ThinWEB Technologies.

Built on top of Clarent's software-driven Voice over IP (VoIP)
communications platform, the resulting applications are expected to enable
Clarent's service provider customers to offer new, revenue-generating
communications features that will differentiate them from their
competitors.


"As the market for IP telephony continues to grow, so does the need for
IP-based communications applications," said Tom Valovic, research manager,
IDC. "With the demand for these types of applications increasing, it's
imperative for companies such as Clarent to cultivate relationships with
third-party software developers in order to provide a breadth of
innovative
offerings to carrier and next-generation network customers."

Java City Technologies' application suite is expected to offer carriers
pre-configured hardware and software for building VoIP services on
Clarent's
communications platform, providing additional database refinement and
system
design features. For example, the Java City applications built on the
Clarent platform will enable service providers to easily configure their
databases, add network elements such as local access Clarent-based VoIP
customer premise equipment, and allow service providers to give end users
the ability to provision phone features for themselves through a simple
web
browser.

"We recognise the growth of the VoIP market and the increasing needs of
service providers," said Bill Nicely, president and CEO, Java City
Technologies. "We're pleased to be working with Clarent on developing and
delivering an innovative application suite that enables customers to
easily
manage, provision, monitor, and decipher service and subscriber usage
reports in a simple format."

Clarent is also collaborating with ThinWEB to provide its customers with a
rich graphical user interface (GUI) for remotely accessing their VoIP
network databases via any secure Web browser, making network management
and
configuration easier and more efficient.

"By working with Clarent to embed ThinWEB's ThinAccess(tm) in Clarent's
Application Server, customers can achieve secure, robust, fast access to
Clarent's VoIP network database from any browser," explains Bryan MacLean,
ThinWEB's Vice President of Technology. "This is an excellent example of
how collaborative development can help deliver and deploy innovative
applications to customers worldwide."

"Helping our customers grow their businesses by cultivating important
relationships with third-party application developers is a top priority
for
Clarent," said Peter Bohacek, senior vice president, product marketing,
Clarent Corporation. "Our collaborations with Java City and ThinWEB
reinforce our commitment to sharing ideas and visions for advanced,
IP-based
communications services that benefit service providers, application
developers and consumers around the world."

The Clarent Application Developer and Service Creation Partner Program
currently includes more than 40 application development companies
worldwide.
The program aims to provide application developers with the opportunity to
share ideas and visions for advanced, IP-based communications
applications,
solutions and services.
