Enhanced and Distributed Network Architecture

Implicity is an enhanced IP messaging platform that supports many network
architecture designs, including those used by wireless and broadband
subscribers. This SIP-based system provides carrier-class system reliability
on agnostic, non-proprietary technology, and it does not require any complex,
underlying specialized hardware - making it easy to customize.

Scalable and Flexible Platform

UTStarcom's Implicity platform maintains the bandwidth parameters to
handle millions of subscribers at entry-level cost performance, and it has the
capability of supporting a Centrex/wholesale model. This new IP platform also
supports an intuitive service creation environment that houses an emergency
notification application, location-based services and additional products.

With UTStarcom's Implicity, carriers can provide converged, rich revenue-
generating services, including video e-mail, instant messaging, standard e-
mail, voicemail and conferencing through an IMS-enabling architecture. The
interoperability capabilities of this platform also will enable residential,
mobile and business-centric users to communicate with and gain immediate
access to voice and data messages stored on any of their other handheld
devices - from equipped cell phones to PDAs, smartphones and SIP phones.

'UTStarcom's new Implicity platform truly offers the next generation of IP
messaging and data transfer,' said

marketing for UTStarcom, Inc. 'As the industry is evolving, UTStarcom will
