WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. and NETANYA, Israel, Feb. 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VocalTec Communications Ltd. (Nasdaq:CALL), the leading provider of free phone service with magicJack®, is now offering softswitches, application servers and session border controllers (SBC) at absolutely no charge.

Any approved telecommunications company that arranges a "Bill and Keep" agreement with VocalTec's subsidiary, YMax Communications Corp., will receive free softswitches, application servers and session border controllers. A Bill and Keep is a pricing arrangement for the interconnection of two telecommunications networks under which each network agrees to terminate calls from the other network at no charge. This free offering can save companies hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars in some cases.

Hundreds of rural and large telecommunications companies, along with CLECs, throughout the United States and internationally, will want to consider this tremendous offer. VocalTec has invested in these products for many years to ensure it has the most robust, reliable and efficient systems in the world. The company believes its products are much more powerful than BroadSoft and Acme Packet's per server. Potentially you can use ten times fewer servers for these combined services than these other suppliers, all easily contained in half a computer cabinet including redundant servers.

YMax Communications handles over one billion minutes a month on these same platforms, with the ability to go over ten billion monthly minutes without further investment, providing the best voice quality in the business. With this free offer, any voice provider may now easily interconnect with YMax. These products have been battle tested and can be provided with the most powerful, up-to-date, readily available Dell servers. These servers can be utilized for any provider's needs, not just YMax interconnectivity. In some instances, VocalTec may even offer free gateways if needed.

There are no viable reasons for a telecom provider to fail to interconnect with others via IP (VoIP)  to IP or even TDM to IP. Please email Daniel@vocaltec.com to learn all the details of the offer and how to get started. We look forward to all serious inquiries.
