Activated Dialing Solutions for Telecommunications Providers in China

New Speech Applications Allow Telcos to Deliver Compelling, Value-Added Services for Customers

BURLINGTON, Mass., April 24, 2006 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: NUAN), a leading provider of speech and imaging solutions, and Huawei, China's leading provider of telecommunications-grade voice solutions, today announced the successful deployment of Huawei’s Voice Activated Dialing (VAD) Solutions in China. Using Nuance’s automated speech recognition technologies, Huawei allows callers to “dial” any contact using a single voice command.

The Huawei system enables landline or mobile phone users to store their contact information in a secure, network-based server and initiate phone calls by simply saying the name of the person they wish to call. For enterprise or corporate customers, the VAD Solution can also act as an auto-attendant service, allowing callers simply to say the name of the person or department they want to reach rather than needing to remember extension numbers, use touchtone, or wait for an operator.

Customers that have deployed Huawei’s VAD Solutions include China Mobile, China NetCom and China Telecom. For mobile operators, VAD is the key component of the Huawei enterprise communications solution, while VAD forms part of the Network Intelligence Solution for fixed line operators.

“In the highly competitive telecom industry, organizations are looking for new solutions to differentiate themselves from their competition and generate additional revenue streams,” said Zhao Yong, director, Application and Software Product Marketing Department, Huawei. “With the advent of mature speech technologies, Voice Activated Dialing applications meet these requirements by creating an extremely profitable value-added service. We chose to work with Nuance due to its global commitment to delivering quality speech technologies. The initial deployments of our Voice Activated Dialing Solutions have been successful, and we expect telecom providers will continue to adopt speech-enabled applications as we expand our offerings in this area.” “Huawei is unleashing some of the industry’s most innovative solutions for the China market and beyond,” said Michael Thompson, vice president and general manager, Telco Search and Communications Division, Nuance. “With more than 400 million users, China represents the world’s largest mobile phone market. Nuance Mobile offers the ideal solution for partners such as Huawei to develop speech-enabled solutions that will create compelling, value-added services for this growing market.”

Huawei’s VAD Solutions can scale to mange address books of varied sizes, from personal contacts to thousands of names for enterprise customers. The system is currently available in Chinese Mandarin and Chinese Cantonese blended with English. Additional language support is under development. About Huawei
