ITEXPO EAST 2010, MIAMI, FLORIDA--Jan. 21, 2010 - As part of its ongoing commitment to the FreeSWITCH open source project, Sangoma® Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading supplier of hardware and software enabling server-based voice and data communication applications, today announced at ITEXPO East 2010 the company is extending its support by becoming a major sponsor of both a leading open source conference and weekly FreeSWITCH community calls. Through its financial and technical support, Sangoma hopes to facilitate the growth of the FreeSWITCH community by increasing the number and types of IP Telephony applications developed.

Sangoma will be a Diamond sponsor, the highest level of sponsorship, of the 10th annual ClueCon Conference taking place this August 3-5, in Chicago, IL. ClueCon is an annual three-day open source telephony user and developer conference that brings together the entire spectrum of telephony. The conference features presentations by industry leaders on a variety of open source telephony platforms including FreeSWITCH, Asterisk, Callweaver, OpenSIPKamailio, Bayonne and Yate.

Additionally, Sangoma will sponsor the FreeSWITCH community calls, weekly calls where leading developers present topics of interest to the open source telephony community. They also lead discussions on projects, best practices and other topics relevant to open source developers. Sangoma will provide technical support on calls whenever topics related to their expertise are on the agenda.

"Sangoma's contribution has been invaluable since the inception of the movement, both from a financial perspective as well as from a technology partnership level," said Anthony Minessale, lead developer of the FreeSWITCH project. "We are excited about Sangoma's continued involvement and active support for the project."
