InnoMedia, a supplier of Internet and broadband access IP telephony solutions, together with SIIX Singapore, a business support provider, announced they have entered into a partnership with TATANET, a division of a TATA company called NELCO Ltd. This exclusive partnership is focused on delivering next generation IP telephony solutions to customers in India.

TATANET manages and operates a private CUG (close user group) VSAT network in India, providing Wide Area Networking solutions for the TATA group. Leveraging on its extensive experience in network management and system integration, TATANET will manage and integrate InnoMedia's IP communication solutions for the India market. SIIX will provide logistical support and business coordination.

InnoMedia offers IP telephony solutions and services for enterprises, home offices, and consumers. These include: the InnoMedia IP VideoPhone; InfoGate 3000 series of VoIP gateways; InfoTalk standalone VoIP appliances; InfoAccel family of VoIP PC devices; and BuddyTalk, a 4-in-1 VoIP PC client that includes multi-party conferencing. All InnoMedia VoIP clients can also call any phone in the world at low destination-based rates using InnoSphere, InnoMedia's global IP termination network.

In the area of broadband access IP telephony, InnoMedia offers the MTA 3300, a next generation Multimedia Terminal Adapter designed for broadband service providers looking to deploy telephony services with calling features and voice quality equivalent to PSTN. InnoMedia also delivers solutions for OEM partners, including the Creative VoIP Blaster, an OEM version of InfoAccel USB.

The accelerated pace of the telecommunication liberalization has been evident in the recent moves by the government of India. In August 2000, the Indian government announced its decision to liberalize the private long distance market. This was followed by its move to legalize Internet Telephony beginning April 1, 2002, two years ahead of the commitment made by India to the World Trade Organization.
