ANDOVER, Mass. --(Business Wire)-- Feb. 21, 2005 --
Network visionary will discuss strategies for selecting, implementing and securing large-scale VoIP solutions
Enterasys Networks(R) (NYSE: ETS), the Secure Networks Company(TM), today announced that John Roese, the company's chief technology officer, will be a featured speaker at this week's INTERNET TELEPHONY(R) Conference & EXPO at the Miami Hyatt Regency Hotel. An internationally renowned authority on networking and security, Roese holds multiple patents, is an author of key industry standards, and is an expert on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), wireless technology and machine-to-machine communications.
In his presentation--IP Telephony for the Large Scale Enterprise--Roese will discuss the business benefits of VoIP and related convergence technologies and how these applications require powerful network security. Scheduled for Tuesday, February 22 at noon, the session will emphasize how security embedded in the network infrastructure helps enterprises avoid the business-crippling effects of internal and external threats that quickly can bring down data and voice communications on a converged network.
Members of the media interested in meeting with Roese at the conference or scheduling an interview to discuss his remarks should contact Christine Atkinson at CHEN PR (firstname.lastname@example.org 781-466-8282, ext. 39).
"As VoIP deployments increase exponentially, so too do a wide range of current and emerging threats. Identifying and mitigating these security risks is a critical concern that many organizations continue to face," said Roese. "Enterasys Secure Networks solutions enable enterprises to deal effectively with these risks so they can maintain business continuity and productivity. In addition to delivering the highest levels of infrastructure performance and security, Enterasys is a charter member of VOIPSA--a cross-industry group dedicated to helping organizations understand and avoid VoIP security threats."
INTERNET TELEPHONY(R) Conference & EXPO is a targeted and innovative four-day conference and tradeshow offering a comprehensive education for selecting and deploying VoIP solutions. IP telephony voice and data products offer businesses and telecommunications service providers a lower-cost, more feature-rich alternative to traditional telecom services.
"We are very pleased that John will be participating in this year's show. Enterasys Networks is widely recognized and respected as an industry leader, and I am confident that our attendees will appreciate and value the opportunity to hear his perspective on effectively deploying and securing Voice over IP," said TMC president and conference co-chair, Rich Tehrani. "During the past year, widespread adoption of IP Telephony by global service providers, businesses and governments has reinforced that VoIP is a viable, cost-effective communications solution. As a result, we are seeing a significant number of senior-level executives attending INTERNET TELEPHONY(R) Conference & EXPO as a means of learning about the technology so they too can take advantage of its benefits."

We expressly disclaim any obligation to update such statements publicly to reflect changes in the expectations, assumptions, events or circumstances on which such statements may be based or that may affect the likelihood that actual results will differ materially.
Some risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: worldwide and regional economic uncertainty and recent political and social turmoil may continue to negatively affect our business and revenue; we have a history of losses in recent years and may not operate profitably in the future; our quarterly operating results may fluctuate, which could cause us to fail to meet quarterly operating targets and result in a decline in our stock price; we earn a substantial portion of our revenue for each quarter in the last month of each quarter, which reduces our ability to accurately forecast our quarterly results and increases the risk that we will be unable to achieve previously forecasted results; we continue to introduce new products, and if our customers delay product purchases or choose alternative solutions, or if sales of new products are not sufficient to offset declines in sales of older products, our revenue could decline, we may incur excess and obsolete inventory charges, and our financial condition could be harmed; we may be unable to upgrade our indirect distribution channels or otherwise enhance our selling capabilities, which may hinder our ability to grow our customer base and increase our revenue; we have experienced significant changes in senior management and our current management team has been together for only a limited time, which could limit our ability to achieve our objectives and effectively operate our business; there is intense competition in the market for enterprise network equipment, which could prevent us from increasing our revenue and achieving profitability; a portion of the enterprises we sell to rely in whole or in part on public funding and often face significant budgetary pressure, and if these customers must delay, reduce or forego purchasing from us, our revenues could be harmed; we depend upon a limited number of contract manufacturers for substantially all of our manufacturing requirements, and the loss of any of our primary contract manufacturers would impair our ability to meet the demands of our customers; and those additional risks and uncertainties discussed in our most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 3, 2004.
