    SHERBROOKE and MONTREAL, Quebec, April 12 /PRNewswire/ - Mediatrix
 Telecom, Inc., a leading provider of Internet Protocol (IP) based Telephony
 solutions for small and medium size enterprises and Next Generation Carriers,
 announced today that it has released its features-rich, interoperable, MGCP
 (Media Gateway Control Protocol) stack for General Availability.
     Mediatrix Telecom, Inc., will be demonstrating the interoperability of
 its MGCP-based VoIP solutions at the upcoming MGCP Interop Event hosted by the
 International Softswitch Consortium. This industry-wide technology test event
 will be held April 22 through 26 at the University of New Hampshire,
 Interoperability Lab in Durham, NH.
     "By adding the MGCP stack to our IP Telephony product line, Mediatrix
 remains at the forefront of the implementation of reliable and interoperable
 signaling protocols for IP communications," said Dr. Marco Genoni, Mediatrix's
 President and CEO. "Mediatrix is committed to continuing to support open
 standards which will serve as the underlying technology driver for the
 development of the new telecom landscape."
     The MGCP Stack joins Mediatrix's SIP Stack in the Company's portfolio of
 IP Telephony software offerings. Both stacks have been licensed to major OEMs
 and are included as options in Mediatrix's own line of IP Telephony Adapters.
 Mediatrix's IP products and solutions, which include IP Access Devices,
 Gateways, PC Clients and Telephony Servers, have gained industry-wide
 acceptance because of their higher performance, lower cost, wide
 interoperability and support of all IP signaling protocols. "Mediatrix's
 proven IP Telephony technology allows its customers to deploy VoIP in new
 generation networks today," added Dr. Genoni.
     The Mediatrix MGCP stack is an object oriented ANSI C++ module that
 implements the required MGCP functionalities of a Media Gateway. Among many
 key features, the stack supports the NCS profile, is operating system and
 platform independent and can support any MGCP package. In addition, the stack
 is modular, scalable and network layer independent.
