Redwood City, California / Boston, MA - August 7th 2003 - IXI Mobile,
Inc., inventor of the PMG (Personal Mobile Gateway) and provider of
innovative wireless software solutions for 'sleek' new wireless devices
and services, and Netonomy, the leading provider of customer
self-service solutions for communications service providers, have
partnered to create a complete end-to-end PMG management solution.

The PMG is the bridge between the wireless network and the new category
of wireless enabled devices. It enables a new set of innovative
Bluetooth-connected devices (e.g., watches, pens, phones, messaging
terminals, gaming devices, cameras) that deliver a superior
functionality and experience without compromising design or price.

The new end-to-end PMG solution combines IXI Mobile's operator
management solution, 'IXI-Manage', with Netonomy's customer self-service
application, 'MyNetonomy®'. IXI-Manage enables wireless operators to
remotely access the PMG, manage the Personal Area Network (PAN) and
monitor device and application usage, all over-the-air. MyNetonomy is a
scalable and secure application that enables users to select specific
services to be downloaded to their PMG-enabled devices, and then manage
and personalize those services in a self-service way. Examples of such
services could be a "meeting alerts" feature for a 'designed for PMG'
watch with different reminder settings set through the MyNetonomy
portal, or specific resolution/compression details for sending images
from their 'designed for PMG' digital camera.

Netonomy has proven expertise in self-service solutions for the wireless
industry giving operators the ability to provide self-service account
management facilities for their customers, for mobile retail outlets and
now for this exciting new breed of personal devices. Netonomy's
customers include many large network operators including Brasil Telecom,
Cegetel, Orange, Telecom Italia and Vodafone.

Amit Haller, CEO and President of IXI Mobile, said: "This end-to-end
solution makes operator deployment of PMGs more straightforward and easy
to integrate into other BSS/OSS applications. Meanwhile, users will be
able to select services, activate new PMG-enabled devices and easily
manage their PMG network via the seamless IXI-Manage / MyNetonomy
interface."

John Ball, CEO of Netonomy, said: "This exciting new wave of
applications represents the next step for the wireless industry. We are
extremely pleased to be working with IXI Mobile to enrich the wireless
experience for consumers and business users alike."
