* Addition of PSTN and ISDN pricing stimulates more competition with Telcos *

Software technology innovator, netFUSION has announced that its Windows and JAVA-based software package, netVESPA, now
supports pricing data for PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Services) and ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network). Aimed
at organisations needing swift access to telecommunications pricing, both national and international, NetVESPA can be
used to reduce the price for installing and running Wide Area Networks (WAN).

netVESPA (netFUSION's Very Easy Services Pricing Application) is used to determine the cost of WAN circuits and services
across more than 50 countries. Utilising the tariff database, users can quickly identify the least cost providers of
voice and data services -including digital and analogue leased circuits, frame relay, packet data and now ISDN/PSTN

NetVESPA has been traditionally targeted towards Telecommunications carriers and network services providers to enable
fast and accurate pricing of services by their sales forces. Now, however, netFUSION believes it is steering the use of
its products into previously uncharted waters through their ease of use and administration; thus making it increasingly
simple to price competitive services, especially when planning a network.

Consequently, netFUSION is targeting the system at facility management and outsourcing companies, Value Added Resellers,
equipment vendors, consultants and Internet Service Providers. The added support for PSTN pricing information allows
such companies to make immediate decisions and recommendations regarding the likely cost savings to be had from migrating
between different carriers and service types.

"Being JAVA-based, netVESPA addresses considerable problems associated with traditional sources of this type of
information. To begin with, data is easily managed as a single entity on one server, whereas before, a separate database
had to be managed for each user. Similarly, the application itself, being JAVA-based does away with the need to maintain
the application at the desk top and makes it very easy to use," explained John Earley, marketing director at netFUSION.

Exploiting the features of JAVA enabled the company to re-examine the product's ease of use, with the result that
netVESPA now has a single screen graphical user interface through which all information can be accessed. netFUSION also
points to the product's ease of use as being key to opening up new markets.

"In a market which is becoming more and more price sensitive and where it is increasingly hard to justify networking
equipment on the basis of a financial pay-back, tools like netVESPA are crucial for supporting the decision making
process," concluded Earley.
