VocalTec: We expect to keep the workforce at its current level as we prepare for potential high growth.

VoIP pioneer and magicJack developer VocalTec Communications Inc/ (Nasdaq: CALL) has raised its revenue guidance to $117-125 million for 2010 from its previous guidance, issued on July 16, of $110-125 million.

VocalTec will hold a shareholders meeting on December 17, 2010.
