Oakville, Ontario, Canada June 12, 2008 - Phybridge Inc. announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) named the Phybridge UniPhyer as a 2008 TMC Labs Innovation Award winner presented by its publication, INTERNET TELEPHONY.

"We are incredibly excited about receiving this award from TMC" said Phybridge CEO, John Croce. "Our revolutionary approach is to view the move to Unified Communications differently. Our patent pending technology uses the existing telephone wiring to deliver Unified Communications while having convergence occur within the data center. As with any new idea, it often takes some time for the true value to be recognized. TMC asked questions and took the time to evaluate and understand the UniPhyer. TMC certainly is interested in new and innovative offerings for the communications industry."

"Phybridge has demonstrated to the staff of TMC Labs that the UniPhyer is indeed truly innovative in the IP Communications industry. The UniPhyer solution has made contributions which have resulted in significant advancement to the industry," said TMC President Rich Tehrani. "We're proud to reward Phybridge's hard work with a TMC Labs Innovation Award this year."

"The Innovation Awards exemplify the best and the most unique products and services that this industry has to offer. Phybridge has proven their commitment to quality and the further development of the IP communications industry through its UniPhyer solution," added Tom Keating, CTO and TMC Labs Editorial Director. "My congratulations to Phybridge for earning this great honor. I look forward to seeing more innovative solutions from them as they continue to contribute to the future of IP communications."

The TMC Labs Innovation Awards honor products that display innovation, unique features, and significant contributions toward improving communications technology. The TMC Labs Innovation Awards are not necessarily granted to the best -selling products, but instead to those demonstrating ground -breaking contributions to the industry.
The INTERNET TELEPHONY TMC Labs 2008 Innovation Award highlights will be published in the July and August 2008 issues of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
