Protus Selected as Part of MCI Consortium
Protus joins MCI Team of Industry Partners to Bid on Networx Contract for Government Agencies.

Ottawa, August 16, 2005 - Protus IP Solutions today announced it has teamed with MCI, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCIP), HP, Verizon Wireless, and others to bid on the General Service Administration's (GSA) Networx contract. The MCI team plans to leverage experience, product capabilities, IP leadership and partner relationships to bid on both Networx Universal and Networx Enterprise contract options. Combined, this represents one of the largest federal contract bids to date for an estimated 10-year, $20 billion Networx telecommunications and IT contract.

"GSA has been forward thinking on the Networx contracts and is offering government agencies end-to-end solutions that require a vendor who has experience at pulling the many pieces and parts together to deliver those solutions," said Jerry Edgerton, senior vice president of MCI Government Markets. "MCI and our industry leading team are well positioned to meet this challenge and provide cost effective, advanced communications to agencies now and in the future."

"To be selected to work on this monumental project with so many industry leaders is a testament to Protus' market strength and history of successful partnerships," says Joseph Nour, CEO, Protus. "This further illustrates that Protus is a recognized leader in the internet fax market and is the preferred choice for corporate deployments and Fortune 500 enterprises."
