                     SIPware Calling Card Application

 Gold Line Preserves Full TDM Feature Compatibility and Adds Innovation
                with RapidFLEX Service Delivery Platform

Marlborough, Mass., June 7, 2006 - Pactolus Communications Software Corporation,
developers of the most comprehensive IP voice service suite and service delivery
environment for telecom service providers, today announced its selection and
deployment by Gold Line Telemanagement, Canada’s leading provider of calling card
services with more than half of the country’s $350-million pre-paid long-distance
business.


Gold Line selected Pactolus as its exclusive provider of calling card applications, and is
expanding its dominant prepaid, affinity and promotional calling card market penetration
with innovative services based on Pactolus’ award-winning SIPware Calling Card
application and RapidFLEX Service Delivery Platform. Gold Line carefully evaluated
alternative service application approaches before replacing its TDM-based services
platform, selecting the Pactolus solution both for its scale and feature extensibility and
adaptability using the RapidFLEX Service Creation Environment.


“We first achieved market leadership by providing reliable, high-quality services that
allow subscribers to affordably keep in touch with friends and relatives. Migration to IP
and IMS readiness are the logical next step in sustaining our growth and leadership.
Preserving legacy service functionality is, of course, a key goal,” notes Mr. Vivian Clark,
Chief Technology Officer, Gold Line. “Pactolus is the clear VoIP services vendor of
choice, and a strategic partner. Its advanced service extensibility and customizability
uniquely met our requirements, and provides a future-proof foundation for new and
successive generations of service products and multi-national expansion.”


In the ten years since its founding, Gold Line has become the established leader in
Canadian calling card services. Today, over 100 million minutes of long distance calls
are placed monthly, and its loyal customer continues to grow at record rates.
CEO Paul Blondin notes: “Our direct and strategic relationship with Gold Line is an
honor, and reflects our mutual commitment to meeting the evolving customer
requirements of the global prepaid market”. Blondin further noted, “Our selection and
ongoing deployment by Gold Line establishes Pactolus as the engine driving over 80%
of the Canadian market’s prepaid traffic, and a front runner in global IP telecom services
expansion.”
