Comverse Provides Mobile Internet Gateway And GPRS Data Charging Point For
One 2 One

Comverse the world's leading supplier of software and systems enabling
network-based enhanced services, today announced that it has been selected
by One 2 One, the UK mobile communications network, to supply both a GSM
and GPRS-enabled mobile Internet solution. Under the terms of the
agreement, Comverse will deliver its router-based wireless Internet
gateway, Mega.flow™, to enable a wide range of wireless Internet services
for One 2 One's customers, and provide the platform for new billing
capabilities for packet-based services.

Comverse's Mega.Flow has been selected as the platform for the delivery of
Internet-based services to wireless devices, enabling One 2 One to offer
high-performance, seamless mobile Internet connectivity. It is a
device-independent, policy-driven mobile Internet platform consisting of a
router-based gateway that supports the delivery of Web content to all
device browsers, independent of an operator's communications protocol.

Mega.Flow will also serve as the data charging point platform for One 2
One's GPRS network. Comverse's introduction of a real-time data charging
point on GPRS networks provides One 2 One with a far more flexible
solution for its mobile subscribers using handsets to access the Internet.
Rather than billing subscribers using traditional time increments,
Comverse's GPRS data charging point enables One 2 One to offer billing
options to subscribers based on their data packet usage.

Jens Denecke, Chief Technical Officer for One 2 One, said, "We are very
pleased to be working with Comverse to create a mobile Internet solution
that will give us the capability to harness the full power of GPRS, as
well as offer a broad and flexible range of mobile Internet services and
unique pricing packages to One 2 One customers. Comverse stands out as a
true expert in the field of mobile data, and we are looking forward to the
exciting opportunities this collaboration will open up for us."

"One 2 One is setting the standard in the delivery of high-speed mobile
Internet services," said Zeev Bregman, Chief Executive Officer of
Comverse. "We are excited to have been selected by One 2 One to enable
their delivery of industry-leading mobile applications and position them
to expand their subscriber base through the seamless deployment of
next-generation wireless revenue-enhancing multimedia applications and
services. Our leading GPRS data charging point solution helps to further
One 2 One's ability to uniquely differentiate themselves in their market
by offering flexible pricing packages, customised to meet individual
subscribers' needs."
