(Nasdaq:CMVT) and Pacific Century CyberWorks (Hong Kong:PCCW) announced today the launch of PCCW's Net Surf Call Manager, Hong Kong's first IP-based call management service.

PCCW's Net Surf Call Manager application enables Hong Kong's 2.3 million Internet users to talk on the phone while browsing the Internet.

PCCW's Net Surf Call Manager application gives users several options. They can accept the call using Voice over IP technology, forward the call to voicemail for later access, transfer the call to another number, or select a pre-recorded message to be played to the caller.

According to Zeev Bregman, Chief Executive Officer of Comverse, said the company's IP-based call management offering is easy to use. "Users are not required to change their existing telephone number. They can simply activate the service without having to set up complicated procedures before connecting to the Internet," he said.
