RADCOM and DATAKOM Join Forces to Provide a Solution for Lawful Data Network
Interception in Germany

Initial contracts were signed to supply up to 350 systems - each with a
specially adapted PrismLite

news) announced today that its multitechnology protocol analyzer, specially
adapted for use by DATAKOM, has been approved as a major component of
Germany's exclusive Lawful Interception (LI) solution. This is an innovative
vendor independent solution for lawful data network interception in Germany.
Initial contracts were signed to supply up to 350 PrismLite analyzers over
the next three years.

Data networks, including voice and video over data, are being used
increasingly as a communications medium. Therefore, lawful monitoring of
data networks is becoming as important as telephone network monitoring. As a
result, Germany has recently updated its G-10 law, originally passed in
1997, and similar to the CALEA law passed in the United States in 1994.
Service providers are now required to give law enforcement the means to
monitor their data as well as voice lines. DATAKOM and RADCOM's jointly
developed system enables German service providers to adhere to this law.

In this special LI system, the extracted information is not displayed or
recorded to hard disk or in memory rather, the data stream is securely
transported to governmental agencies responsible for LI tasks.

The versatile LI system is also capable of handling many different transit
networks, providing documentation and time stamping with official radio/GPS
time.The RADCOM/ DATAKOM LI system has been approved and certified by the
German Regulation Office and Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi).
DATAKOM has applied for a patent for the LI system.

``DATAKOM and RADCOM developed this LI technology in cooperation with major
German carriers and German Governmental Departments,'' said Paul Hoffmann,
Managing Director of DATAKOM GmbH. ``We use the powerful capabilities and
flexibility of the PrismLite analyzer for critical processes inside the G-10
LI system.'' Our solution is the only LI system on the market which operates
over multi-vendor equipment networks and meets the economic requirements of
this important project.``

``Now that we have received contracts from major carriers for the LI system,
we expect a substantial increase in orders from the remaining 300 PTTs and
service providers in Germany, all of whom have to comply with the
regulations for lawful interception,'' concluded Mr. Arnon Toussia-Cohen,
CEO and President of RADCOM. ``We also expect similar requirements to arise
from other European Service Providers as well as from the United States as a
solution to requirements of its CALEA Legislation.''
