COMMUNICATIONS, MOSCOW, RUSSIA, LICENSE NO. D390433

REFTEL: USDOC 00821


1. Unauthorized disclosure of the information provided
below is prohibited by Section 12C of the Export
Administration Act.

2. Reftel requested a pre-license check to determine
the legitimacy and reliability of the end-user,
Atlantis Communications, Moscow, Russia. The company
is listed on BIS license application D390433 as the
ultimate consignee of cm4 Linux unity software,
operating system for the media gateways. These items
are controlled for national security and anti-
terrorism reasons under ECCN 5D002. The licensee is
Avaya, Inc., 211 Mt. Airy Road, Basking Ridge, NJ
07920.

3. On March 24, 2008, Export Control Attache Peter
Liston and LES Natalya Shipitsina conducted the
requested pre-license check at the offices of Atlantis
Communications, 2-nd Zvenigorodskaya st., 13, bld.40,
Moscow, Russia. The Export Control Team met with
Sergey Melnik, Head of Telephone System Department,
Tatiana Kramarenko, Channel Account Manager (Avaya
Co.), Igor Krivoruchenko, Director, Govermnent Sector
Russia and CIS (Avaya Co.), Dmitry Koshelev, Deputy
Head of Technical Department, Central Administrative
Board of Ministry of Internal Affairs (GUVD, Moscow
Police Traffic Department) and Andrey Bushuev, Head of
Technical Department, Central Administrative Board of
Ministry of Internal Affairs (GUVD, Moscow Police
Traffic Department).

4. Atlantis Communications is a solely owned and
operated Russian company that was founded in 1998 and
employs approximately 300 people. Atlantis purchases
primarily U.S. origin telecommunications equipment
(AT&T and Lucent) for re-sale on the Russian market.
Atlantis does not sell to customers outside of the
Russian Federation.

5. The commodity in subject reftel has been purchased
by Atlantis through the license applicant Avaya, in
order to upgrade the telecommunications equipment
currently in place at the Moscow City Traffic Police
(GUVD). The equipment currently in place with the
GUVD is also U.S. origin and is approximately 10 years
old.

6. Atlantis Communications, and the ultimate end-user
GUVD, appear to have the technical and commercial
sophistication consistent with that for which the
commodity in question was designed. Atlantis
Communication and GUVD appear to have a legitimate
need for the commodity in subject reftel.

7. Recommendations: Post recommends Atlantis
Communications and Central Administrative Board of
Ministry of Internal Affairs (GUVD, Moscow Police
Traffic Department), Moscow, Russia, as reliable
recipients of sensitive U.S. origin commodities. It is
requested that Post be notified of final disposition
of the application, and of any shipments for this
organization in order to conduct appropriate FCS
follow-up and statistical reporting.
