XACCT’S “Network-to-Business” Platform Provides Insightful Information
To Teleglobe and Its Customers

RESTON, Va. & SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 23, 2001 –Teleglobe (NYSE, TSE: BCE), the e-World Communications Company, has purchased XACCT Technologies, Inc.’s “Network to Business” (N2B TM) platform to collect and analyze customer and network usage information on a real-time basis. In turn, Teleglobe’s customers gain quicker access to network performance and usage data that can help them more efficiently utilize Teleglobe’s network and services and identify opportunities for developing new services. The new technology also provides Teleglobe additional capabilities for developing new services and forecasting its own network capacity requirements.

The platform links Teleglobe’ network infrastructure and the company’s multiple Operations and Business Support Systems (OSS/BSS) in real time, serving as a clearinghouse between the various support systems when changes are made in any of the network components. XACCT’s N2B platform gathers data from all parts of the network, including the physical and applications layers, the routers, switches and service elements such as email, Web, video and other application servers. This gives Teleglobe the flexibility to rapidly transform raw network usage information in real-time into actionable business information.

“Teleglobe’s lifeblood is identifying and meeting customer requirements for advanced IP services and deploying those services quickly and efficiently. Having timely network usage intelligence is a competitive necessity for our customers and us” said Stewart Verge, Teleglobe’s executive vice president of global operations. “We now have a clearer and more immediate snapshot of current network usage trends and can anticipate market needs and respond with new services much more quickly.”

“Teleglobe is recognized for seizing opportunities in rapidly evolving global telecommunications markets through innovative IP-based applications and services,” said Eric Gries, president and chief executive officer of XACCT. “We are very proud to be selected by a leader such as Teleglobe and that our N2B platform supports Teleglobe’s plans for delivering e-World business solutions. It is a significant achievement for XACCT to be chosen as an integral part of Teleglobe’s next generation communications architecture.”
