Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Jetstream Communications, Inc.

    SAN JOSE, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Jetstream Communications, the
 leader in Voice over Broadband (VoBB) solutions*, announced today the
 availability of GetSmart, a cost-effective, comprehensive package that allows
 carriers to best evaluate business case for VoBB solutions in relation to
 their own business model.  In addition, GetSmart provides carriers with the
 marketing and tutorial materials needed to effectively market compelling,
 cost-effective bundled services, and maximize their revenue and profit
 potential.
     "As the voice over broadband industry continues to develop, it is
 essential for solution providers to understand the needs of service providers,
 and view them as both a customer and a partner," said Kevin Mitchell,
 Directing Analyst, Service Provider Networks, for Infonetics Research.  "Voice
 over broadband technology must be combined with a solid business plan in order
 for service providers to be successful.  Jetstream recognizes this need, and
 their GetSmart offering is an important building block for that plan."
     Priced at $499, Jetstream's GetSmart VoBB Starter Kit provides a very
 cost-effective means for carriers to evaluate the costs, deployment lifecycle,
 market profile and marketing needs associated with the deployment of VoBB.
 Included in the package are:
 
     -- VoBB Tutorial -- A multi-media presentation of the VoBB opportunity,
        including a breakdown of Jetstream's VoBB Total Solution
     -- VoBB Interactive Business Case Model -- a GUI-driven solution that
        helps evaluate the financial impact of VoBB on business.  By using this
        innovative modeling tool, carriers can examine the bandwidth, cost and
        revenue drivers and test "what if" scenarios on various service bundles
        to fully understand bottom-line results.  In short, this tool
        determines the business viability of VoBB for carriers.
 
        -- Accompanying Biz Case White paper
        -- VoBB Biz Case Tutorial
        -- Business Case User Guide -- The user guide makes it easy to use the
           Biz case Model to its fullest potential
 
     -- On-Target Market Profiling -- Designed to help marketing and sales
        teams accurately size and target the small businesses that are ideal
        prospects for VoBB services, JetStart's On-target reports will increase
        sales close rates, assist the service provider with collocations
        logistics, build accurate small business sales forecasts, and determine
        VoDSL vs. VoT1 breakouts based on small business demographics.
     -- Carrier Marketing Handbook (CMH) -- A sixty-page service template that
        covers the steps required to launch a successful VoBB service.
     -- Supporting Material
 
        -- "The VoBB Opportunity" Jetstream WhitePaper -- A discussion of the

     "Using VoBB to deploy bundled voice and data services is clearly a very
 powerful and lucrative business model, but carriers need solutions that map to
 their specific market strategies and interests," said Steven Shaw, Director of
 Market Development at Jetstream.  "GetSmart is an excellent fit with our
 strategy to be a whole solutions partner with our customers, delivering
