Smith Micro signs agreement for Internet CommSuite with DSL Networks

The San Francisco Bay-area Internet provider will offer Smith Micro's new all-in-one Internet communications software to its DSL subscribers

ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMSI) today announced an agreement with DSLnetworks, a specialized Internet provider based in San Francisco, California. DSLnetworks will bundle Smith Micro's new Internet CommSuiteTM for customers located in the greater San Francisco Bay area, utilizing its exclusive Digital Subscriber Line ("DSL"), 24-hour customer support and national DS3 backbone.

Internet CommSuite is a new all-in-one Internet communications package that merges multiple Web communications into one user-friendly package. Internet CommSuite enables users to phone, fax, video phone, audio and video e-mail, and conduct other interactive activities over the Internet - with a single piece of communications software.

Internet CommSuite is optimized for new broadband technologies such as cable and xDSL, as well as for traditional analog modems. DSLnetworks will use the software as an incentive both for new and existing customers who seek the benefits of a fast, dedicated connection, without having to invest thousands of dollars in equipment, software and installation of a special line.

"Our marketing strategy is to attract businesses who require Internet connection speeds 30 to 50 times greater than 'legacy' dialup provider networks," stated Brad Conners, President of DSLnetworks. "Our customers connect from a regular telephone line, through the local telephone office, directly to the Internet backbone without congestion from slower ISP traffic, and at very low cost. We view Internet CommSuite as the perfect front-end enhancement to the high-speed and high-quality Internet connectivity demanded by our customers in the greater-Bay area."

"We are delighted to join with DSLnetworks in this software bundling relationship because Internet CommSuite's multi-featured software package is an ideal compliment to the fast, high-quality Internet service being provided by DSLnetworks," said William W. Smith, Jr., Smith Micro's President and CEO. "This agreement is also significant because it marks another commercial endorsement for our strategy of creating Internet software that has been optimized for new high-bandwidth technologies."

Internet CommSuite gives users all the software capabilities needed to talk for free over the Internet, make Internet video phone calls, send Internet faxes that bypass long-distance phone charges, create audio or audio/video e-mails, use an Internet answering machine, and more. All functions are activated from a single-click, easy-to-use software interface that resembles a TV remote control.
