T-systems Venture Fund invests in Litescape Technologies

Bonn, August 7, 2007 - T-Systems Venture Fund today announced an investment in LiteScape Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of Unified Communications applications. The funding round was led by Vedanta Capital. LiteScape’s existing investors - Softbank Capital, TeleSoft Partners, and Blumberg Capital - also participated in the round. LiteScape secured approximately $14 million in Series B funding. In addition, former AT&T executive and co-founder of Vedanta Capital, Alessandro Piol, has joined LiteScape’s Board of Directors.

“We carefully examined the players in the emerging Unified Communications industry, and LiteScape was a clear front runner,” says Alessandro Piol of Vedanta Capital. “Their solutions have been deployed by numerous large companies already and their technology is ahead of industry giants who are just beginning to turn their attention to this rapidly growing market space.”

LiteScape’s flagship product, OnCast, makes the future of unified communications a reality today, allowing organizations to harness the power of complete communications - voice, conferencing, broadcasting, collaboration - across the applications and communications devices they use on a daily basis. OnCast bridges the gap between corporate data, collaboration tools, desktop PCs, and IP phones to create a seamless communications experience. Tearing down communications barriers, OnCast effectively eliminates the divide between IP phones, PCs and mobile devices.

“After thorough due diligence of the Unified Communications market, we identified LiteScape as a leader in this space,” said Sebastian Blum of T-Venture, the venture capital arm of Deutsche Telekom. “We have confidence in the solutions, the management team, and the overall ability of the company to help transform the way organizations communicate and use unified communications applications to optimize business processes.”

OnCast has been deployed globally by multi-national organizations to drive productivity, reduce costs, optimize traditional business processes, and increase corporate security. OnCast presently integrates IP telephony systems with business applications from leading vendors including Cisco, WebEx, Asterisk, Avaya, IBM/Lotus, Microsoft, Polycom and

“With more organizations deploying IP telephony and demanding Unified Communications applications everyday, LiteScape is well positioned to capitalize on the growth of this market by providing a powerful software solution that dramatically helps companies increase productivity,” said Farzad Naimi, Chairman and CEO of LiteScape Technologies. “We are pleased by the new support of Vedanta Capital and T-Systems Venture Fund and the continued confidence of our existing investors. LiteScape’s solutions are already helping many organizations around the world optimize their business processes and streamline communications. With this new funding, we will extend our reach to even more customers, continue to grow our solution portfolio, and build the necessary corporate infrastructure to support a global business.”
