WAYNESBORO, Va.--(Business Wire)--
Lumos Networks (NASDAQ: LMOS), a leading provider of fiber-based products across
the Mid-Atlantic region, today introduced Business Communicator , an exciting
addition to the IP Centrex family of hosted voice services.
The Business Communicator client app once installed on a user`s desktop and/or
smart phone, allows the user to see a colleague`s status while away from their

desk phone number identity. Basic features include the following:

will have to order the mobile application before using the mobile phone
application and can have wireless service from any provider.

make every enterprise more productive and efficient, without spending capital on
expensive equipment that is hard to maintain and manage," said Lumos Networks
Vice President of Product Management and Engineering Craig Drinkhall. "We`re
improving the way our customers communicate with their customers no matter where
they may be, with even greater flexibility and convenience," he added.
