Westford, Mass Ribbon Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: RBBN), a global software leader in secure and intelligent cloud communications solutions, today announced that Peerless Network, a leading-edge provider of telecommunications services and a global disruptor in the telecom industry delivering high- quality voice solutions for enterprise customers worldwide, is leveraging Ribbon’s Cloud2Edge service for its new Cloud PBX offering. Cloud PBX is Peerless’ Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) offering that enables enterprises to easily manage telephone extensions, Direct Inward Dialing (DIDs), services, routing, configuration and inventory over a cloud-based IP network via one system with zero-touch provisioning and easy customization.

Cloud2Edge is a comprehensive

EdgeMarc Intelligent Edge ™ devices, unlimited EdgeMarc call licenses, and
premium technical support. It enables leading service providers, such as
Peerless Network, to manage service quality from the network core to IP
endpoints, collect service quality data for reporting and analytics and
troubleshoot and quickly resolve service quality issues. Peerless is leveraging
Ribbon’s Cloud2Edge for its ability to offer Quality of Service (QoS)
management capabilities via an end-to-end view, from Peerless’ network to the
customer premises to IP endpoints. In addition, Peerless is leveraging Ribbon’s
Cloud2Edge as a Primary Rate Interface (PRI) Gateway for improved voice and
data transmission.

“Our new Cloud PBX offering allows us to expand our innovative,
market-disrupting technology to the enterprise and international markets with a
consumption-based, simple-to-deploy UCaaS model,” said Jim Brewer, Senior Vice
President, Emerging Businesses for Peerless Network. “Ribbon has been a trusted
Peerless partner for over a decade and has always provided us with
state-of-the-art technology designed to help us deliver the high-quality voice
and security solutions that our customers have come to expect.”

backed by an organization whose quality of service is among the highest in the
industry,” said Kevin Riley, Interim Co-President and CEO for Ribbon. “Our
