VoSKY™ Exchange Enters NZ and Australia Market

VoSKY™ Exchange - the World’s First Skype Solution for Business enters the Australian and New Zealand Markets

Melbourne (23 August 2006) — IW Distribution announced today the signing of an exclusive representation agreement with Infoaction covering the Australia and New Zealand markets. Under the agreement, IW Distribution will represent and promote the full range of Skype certified products from VoSKY in Australia and New Zealand.

In addition to already launched Skype products (Chatterbox and USB Phone) IW Distribution will now launch additional Skype certified solutions including VoSKY Exchange, the world’s first Skype certified solution for business, and VoSKY Call Centre, a fully Skype certified ATA.

Businesses can now take advantage of Skype's very low cost call rates with the VoSKY Exchange which allows Skype's Internet telephony service to be used in an office environment. VoSKY Exchange connects to a PBX and to the broadband connection and enables every phone extension in the office to make and receive Skype calls without any changes to existing PBX equipment, phones or user PCs, yielding major savings on calls.

Designed for businesses of 10 to 300 employees, VoSKY Exchange plugs into the PBX on one end and a Windows XP computer on the other. It adds up to four Skype lines to the PBX, with rollover capabilities in the event that one Skype line is busy. Until now, Skype has offered major cost savings and convenience for consumers, but businesses have not been able to leverage Skype's capabilities.

"Now businesses can benefit from Skype – for example they can set up Skype-in numbers for inbound calls to their PABX and reduce existing 1-300 type calls, and they can make low cost calls overseas or between interstate offices. Vosky Exchange can provide significant savings by making it possible to integrate the Skype service into your existing PBX system whilst also removing the need to have Skype loaded onto all PC’s in an office." said Daryl Chambers, Director of IW Distribution

The VoSKY Call Centre is a fully Skype certified ATA which allows the user to make or receive Skype calls from any handset in the house or office. Further a user can route calls from the Call Centre to their mobile phone and vice versa, enabling Skype subscribers to use their cell phones to talk to their Skype buddies, or to non-Skype users anywhere in the world for the cost of a local mobile call.

About Infoaction: InfoAction Technology, Inc. is a subsidiary of Actiontec Electronics Inc one of the top 4 American broadband devices manufacturers established in Silicon Valley in 1993. InfoAction has launched the world-first Skype-certified VoSKY Chatterbox, Skype gateway and Skype-related VoSKY series products, successfully introduced VoSKY products into the international market by officially aligning with Tom-Skype in China and promoting a full line of VoSKY products into the Skype markets in Japan, Europe, New Zealand, Australia, South Asia, Middle East and Middle and South America.
