Comverse (NASDAQ: CMVT), the world's leading supplier of software and
systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communications
services, and Pacific Century CyberWorks (PCCW) announced today the launch
of PCCW's Net Surf Call Manager, Hong Kong's first IP-based call
management service.

PCCW's Net Surf Call Manager application enables 2.3 million Internet
users in Hong Kong to manage their incoming calls flexibly while browsing
the Internet. This gives residential voice messaging and unified
messaging (voice, fax, and email in a single mailbox) subscribers a
virtual phone line while they are online and is designed to ensure that
subscribers will not miss any calls nor be interrupted while surfing the
Web.

PCCW's Net Surf Call Manager application gives users several options: they
can accept the call using the Voice over IP technology, forward the call
to voicemail for later access, transfer the call to another number, or
select a pre-recorded message to be played to the caller.

According to Zeev Bregman, Chief Executive Officer of Comverse, "We are
delighted that PCCW has chosen Comverse's new IP-based call management
offering. IP-based call management anchors at the user's existing
fixed-line number. It's easy to use: users are not required to change
their existing telephone number and they can simply activate the service
without having to set up complicated procedures before connecting to the
Internet. Due to the growing use of the Internet, we at Comverse see the
need for IP-based call management services, to give users more
flexibility. This means Internet users in Hong Kong now have greater
control over their incoming calls. It also shows our commitment to
providing innovative solutions to telecom carriers and users."

IP-based call management service is a part of Comverse's communication
enriching family of services, expanding from messaging to personal
communications solutions. IP-based call management is an extension of the
TRILOGUE™ INfinity™ platform and demonstrates the smooth evolution path to
IP-based services.
