Press Release Body = Ebermannstadt / Johannesburg, July 31, 2006. Centracell, one of
South Africa's leading service providers for least-cost routing (LCR) solutions and
German-based Vierling Communications have established a distribution partnership in
South Africa that will offer highly advanced digital gateway technology, based on
the Vierling suite of products. Vierling will supply its entire portfolio of digital
gateway technologies which include the VTM lite, VTM pro, VTM flex and the SIM card
servers. Vierling gateways can inte-grate with any PBX via ISDN BRI, ISDN PRI and
Ethernet IP for transmis-sions between GSM, VoIP and Fixed Line network platforms,
as well as access to the SIM card servers which enable the centralized remote
man-agement of network SIM cards. Vierling's digital gateway technologies offer an
alternative to the widely-used analog solutions.

Reliable, high-performance digital gateways
"Vierling was an ideal partner for us as they can provide Centracell and its
customers with reliable, high-performance digital gateways which deliver a single
integrated device that will provide a customer access to GSM, Fixed Line, Wireless
and VoIP network platforms for the termination of cellular, national, international
and inter-branch calls," said Julian Morelis, managing director of Centracell. "Our
customers include medium-sized to large com-panies and multi-national corporations
looking for ways to substantially re-duce their communication costs through highly
advanced LCR and SIM card solutions, whilst at the same time provide the highest
level of quality of service and delivery. Vierling can implement a number of
customized fea-tures for us quickly and reliably and at present the managed voice
and mul-timedia services solutions are a priority," said Morelis.

Test results speak for themselves
"Our customers require highly functional, reliable, flexible and feature rich
technology that at the same time offers them seamless integration with their
existing infrastructure and maximum savings," said Alan Lipchin, Cen-tracell's
product manager. "We have tested Vierling's digital gateways and have used them in
preliminary projects. The systems are highly stable dur-ing operation and remote
management of the LCR features ensure huge cost savings. The results speak for
themselves," said Lipchin.

An established and experienced partner
"In Centracell we have gained an excellent sales partner with a wide range of
business connections to companies in South Africa," said Wolfgang Pe-ter, managing
director of Vierling Communications. "Centracell has many years experience in the
distribution of digital gateways as well as in the managed voice and multimedia
services area. The company is well estab-lished in the market and has extensive
technical expertise in this field. We are convinced Centracell has the potential to
develop into one of our strongest partners in the future," concluded Peter.
