Kabira Convergent Charging™ Provides Business Advantage and Innovation
Specifically Designed for the Convergent Telecom Economy

Tucson, AZ and San Mateo, CA – September 25, 2007 – Kabira Technologies Inc. (Kabira) , a leading provider of high performance transaction processing software for global enterprises, will announce the formal launch and expansion of its Kabira Convergent Charging (KCC) product architecture today at the “Next Gen OSS/BSS Summit” in Tucson, Arizona. Kabira Convergent Charging is an innovative charging application that enables telecom providers to charge for new services and offerings in a real-time world.

With over a decade of telecom domain expertise, Kabira’s convergent charging product architecture was designed to specifically address current time to market, flexibility, and scalability concerns facing telecom providers. Paul Sutton, CEO of Kabira Technologies will deliver a session at the Summit highlighting the critical role real-time charging plays in delivering profitability to telecom providers. “It’s all about competitive advantage--our customers have told us of the urgency that drives the need to integrate diverse voice, packet, and content services with their OSS/BSS applications,” explains Sutton. “Kabira Convergent Charging will enable telecom providers to tap into the rich database of subscriber information they already have to offer unique, customizable offerings that more profitably serve their customer’s needs.”

The telecom landscape has evolved into an extremely complex and “converged” world. Competitive pressure, escalating customer expectations, and business realities compel carriers to deliver new services that can be combined interactively, flexibly bundled and priced, and brought rapidly to market. Ubiquitous access, higher bandwidth services like broadband, IPTV, and triple/quad play as well as a broad set of multimedia devices, have created new opportunities for providers to offer diverse and attractive services to their customers. As top-line growth in telecom slows and with each new service contributing incrementally less revenue to the product mix, rapid delivery and accurate charging for new offerings is essential to customer acquisition and retention, and therefore profitability.

Kabira Convergent Charging gives telecom operators the flexibility to charge for new data and voice services offered over 3G/4G wireless, FTTx/broadband, WiMAX, and other service provider network scenarios. The new product’s speed and scalability assure that Kabira systems will be able to handle substantial increases in transaction data volumes that are captured from the network, all while manipulated and acted upon in real-time.

By leveraging Kabira Convergent Charging’s high-performance, highly available, memory-resident architecture, providers can easily and reliably charge for any combination of services in real-time or batch modes, including those that integrate convergent services with subscriber profile information. Kabira’s architecture is designed to support IMS and next-generation network functionality, allowing providers to introduce new services today and address the more demanding services of tomorrow. Some examples of Kabira Convergent Charging deployments and use cases include:
• Service-Aware charging for data networks
• Massively scalable charging that significantly increases charging throughput to match current and future needs
• Convergent charging for wireless networks
• Policy management and rules that coordinate service delivery and charging

Kabira Convergent Charging’s architecture expedites service delivery and improves cost efficiency through reusable elements which providers may choose to incorporate as required. These elements allow for a more seamless approach when adding new services and integrating with legacy systems to leverage and extend existing investment value. Kabira Convergent Charging provides an evolutionary path for convergent charging that is unmatched in the industry.
