Comverse Powers Support For A Comprehensive Services Suite Enabling Delivery And Billing Of Personalized Content and Applications

April 5, 2005 - Comverse, a unit of Comverse Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CMVT), and the world’s leading supplier of software and systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communication services, today introduced further enhancements to its end-to-end solution for mobile virtual network operators (MVNO), which will allow MVNOs to deliver an advanced, comprehensive suite of personalized content, applications and billing offerings.

With the expanded Comverse MVNO solutions suite, MVNOs are able to rapidly offer personalized enhanced services, based on the Comverse Total Communication™ environment. Examples of this wide range of services include messaging and data services ranging from voicemail, videomail, call management, SMS, MMS, and content delivery and infotainment applications, as well as marketing, hosting, billing and third-party support. The Comverse solution also allows MVNOs to differentiate their offering through branding and customizing content and services. The Comverse solution provides the flexibility to modify services, enable personalization and branding, and streamline the system integration process.

“The availability of a comprehensive product solution suite for MVNOs enables a more rapid introduction of a rich set of multimedia services and content applications, with minimal capital investment,” said Benny Einhorn, Chief Marketing Officer, Comverse. “Comverse’s end-to-end product suite with flexible business models is designed to enable MVNOs to reap such benefits as immediate revenue generation from rapid time-to-market service deployments and increased customer satisfaction.”

Comverse’s MVNO suite of solutions is based on the expectation that MVNOs will distinguish themselves in the competitive wireless industry by providing unique services, brands and a distinctive content offering. Comverse’s MVNO offering provides the core services that end users expect from any carrier, including: voice and multimedia messaging, mobile browsing, downloadable ring tones, ringback tones, video portal, and real-time rating and charging, allowing the MVNO to offer flexible bundling and charging models. The foundation for the Comverse MVNO solution suite is built on robust, telco-grade platforms, handset client software based on more than 20 years of user interface expertise and systems integration directly with the carriers.

MVNOs now have the choice of deploying Comverse services in their own data centers or they can take advantage of Comverse’s hosting center to achieve the maximum effectiveness in deploying value-added services and reducing even further time-to-market.
