Acision Number One Messaging Provider to U.S. Operators

- With More Than 60 Percent U.S. Market Share, Acision Strengthens Position as Leading Provider of World's Top Mobile Data Service

PLANO, TX, March 23 /CNW/ - In recent research on the messaging market in the U.S., Acision, a world leader in mobile data, was recognized as the number one vendor of the world's leading mobile data service, SMS. Acision has more than a 60 percent market share of total mobile subscriptions in the U.S., as of end-4Q09, as calculated by Informa Telecoms & Media, further highlighting Acision's global leadership in mobile messaging and data services.

"We are solidifying our position as the messaging enabler of choice among the operator community and, as a result, a leader in mobile data," said Wayne Irwin, president, North America at Acision. "As we move towards a more data-driven mobile environment it is imperative that operators evolve their networks and infrastructure to offer richer services. Acision's comprehensive solution portfolio across mobile data services, mobile data control and mobile data charging has been geared towards supporting our customers' complete mobile data needs - from controlling and optimizing mobile data networks, to powering services such as messaging while increasing revenue capture."

"The US became the largest SMS market in the world in 3Q09, when it overtook the next largest market, China, in terms of total SMS traffic," said Pamela Clark-Dickson, senior analyst, Informa Telecoms & Media. Informa forecasts that SMS traffic in the US will almost double over the next five years, reaching 1.7 trillion messages in 2014 and generating US$18.2 billion in revenues.

This validation coincides with CTIA Wireless 2010, where Acision plans to spotlight recent customer deployments and Acision Innovation Network collaborations, as well as showcase its growing portfolio of real-time mobile data solutions.

Acision will be showcasing a live demonstration of its Broadband Mobility Suite, offering solutions that break new ground in peak traffic management and the reduction of extensive network and backhaul investments, while simultaneously increasing mobile broadband revenue and profit per gigabyte. Acision's Broadband Mobility Suite is the first live solution to combine all of the capabilities operators need to address today's mobile broadband challenge, such as policy management and enforcement, web and media optimization, service allowance and bundle management, charging, location-awareness and VAS. Acision's live Broadband Mobility Suite demonstrations will take place at Acision's booth, No. 2917.
