The Visual Voicemail Client On Siemens SX1 Handsets Will Be Demonstrated At Siemens’ (Hall 26, Stand C32) And Comverse’s (Hall 27, Stand A42) Booths at CeBIT

Comverse, a unit of Comverse Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CMVT), and the world’s leading supplier of software and systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communication services, today announced a joint project implementing the Comverse Visual Voicemail (VVM) handset client on Siemens’ new Symbian OS-based SX1 mobile handsets. These handsets are being supplied to operators with complete VVM functionality preloaded.

Comverse VVM includes an intuitive visual interface that makes message retrieval and management more efficient, and enables users to forward and respond to a voice message by pressing a single button using the subscribers’ personal address book.

Comverse VVM also offers a new non-intrusive communication mode - “Record and Send.” Using Record and Send, subscribers can record and send new voice messages directly to individuals or groups without causing the phone to ring. A demo implementation of VVM on the Siemens SX1 handset can be seen at CeBIT at the Comverse booth (Hall 27, Stand A42) and at the Siemens booth (Hall 26, Stand C32).

“Siemens is a leading vendor of handsets in Europe and around the world,” said Benny Einhorn, Chief Marketing Officer of Comverse. “Embedding our messaging and communication clients on Siemens SX1 phones demonstrates market interest and awareness of Visual Voicemail and Record and Send.”
