    CAMPBELL, Calif., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- In an era when "time-to-market,"
 "high-availability," and "fault tolerance" aren't just buzz words, but keys to
 the very existence of many telecommunications technologies (and their
 companies), HelloSoft is a source of reassurance to most any OEM application
 engineer.  Formed in 1999 and staffed by more than 100 highly-experienced and
 talented communications engineers -- a number of whom are PhDs -- HelloSoft
 infrastructure solutions and services have been integrated into products from
 such leading communications giants as Broadcom, CopperMountain, Ericsson,
 Intel, LSI Logic, Motorola, Tollbridge and others.
     HelloSoft provides infrastructure solutions for all major convergent
 communication networks, especially VoP, Wireless, and xDSL markets.  Its areas
 of expertise include DSP and network protocols, algorithm development, and
 applications such as vocoders, speech recognition, line echo cancellation, and
 Bluetooth technology.  The company can supply a complete system-level
 framework for Internet telephony systems from IP phones to CPE (Customer
 Premise Equipment) to carrier class gateways, and also offers an array of
 architectural evaluation and customization services.
     "Because HelloSoft is a company of proven professionals well-versed in a
 number of technologies, its solutions can lessen technological risk, minimize
 support requirements, and reduce development costs," said Krishna Yarlagadda,
 President and CEO of HelloSoft.  "Our products are optimized to ITU and ISO
 standards to meet or exceed the next generation of communication network
 technologies."
     Among HelloSoft's areas of expertise are:
 
     *  VoP/Fax over IP/Data over IP -- speech coders, signal classification,
        EC, DTMF, networking protocols, modem relay, and fax relay;
     *  2.5/3G Wireless -- speech coders, physical layer, networking protocols,
        OFDM and Bluetooth;
     *  xDSL -- G.lite, ADSL, VDSL.
 
     HelloSoft has extensive background and experience in implementing these
 applications on diverse DSP platforms such as the ZSP-16401, TI-'C54x,
 TI-'C55x, TI-'C6xx, Lucent-16xxx, ADSP-TS001 TigerSHARC, Infineon-Carmel,
 BOPS, MIPS, and several other new processors.
     Among HelloSoft's algorithm-based solutions are line echo cancellers that
 greatly exceed G.165, G.168, and G.168 2000 standards; Voice Activity
 Detection (VAD) and Comfort Noise Generation (CNG) technology; and DTMF
 generation and detection systems.  In the wireless technology arena, HelloSoft
 offers solutions and networking protocols for WCDMA, CDMA2000, and EDGE/GPRS;
 EFR and AMR vocoders for GSM; EVRC vocoder for CDMA; as well as AEC, speech
 recognition, equalizers (EDGE/GPRS), Turbo equalizer (3G), RS with
 interleaver, channel coding (EDGE/GPRS) and more.
     In March 2001, HelloSoft will be announcing its first branded product -- a
 Voice over Packet (VoP) communication solution called HelloVoice(SM).
 HelloVoice is a scalable, comprehensive, system-level solution that serves as
 a virtual operating system for Internet telephony.  Installable in platforms
 as small as an IP phone, as well as mid-range CPE and high-end gateways at
 Central Offices (COs), HelloVoice includes a system-level framework known as
 VoiceOS(SM), plus essential components such as ITU-T compatible vocoders, tone
 handlers, echo cancellors, and network protocols.
     HelloVoice is marketed to a broad range of telecommunications OEMs via a
 network of authorized resellers, distributors, and alliance partners.  For
