    Intec, a global provider of business and operations support systems
(BSS/OSS) today announced, at Mobile World Congress 2009, four separate
operator contracts and implementations demonstrating significant market growth
opportunities, across both emerging and mature markets in EMEA and APAC:

    -   Exatel Poland, one of Poland's largest communications network
        providers, has deployed an upgrade of Intec's market-leading Total
        Service Mediation and InterconnecT billing and settlement solutions,
        designed to help the company's ambitious growth plans

    -   Novotel Bangladesh, awarded the International Gateway License (IGW)
        twelve months previously, will be deploying both Total Service
        Mediation and InterconnecT billing and settlement solutions, to
        ensure best-in-class operations to deliver improved customer
        experience and critical commercial edge

    -   BBCOM, one of Benin's leading mobile operators in the West African
        market hot-spot, where interconnection represents a key source of
        potential revenue, has signed a deal to deploy Intec InterconnecT
        bureau services

    -   Celcom, one of Malaysia's leading network operators, has implemented
        Intec's Total Service Mediation Solution, in a contract worth USD$
        seven figures, to support its strategic market growth strategy.

    "Given current economic uncertainties around the globe, operators are
looking for high-performing solutions that will deliver rapid ROI and enhanced
customer satisfaction," commented Andrew Taylor, CEO of Intec. "Intec's OSS
and BSS solutions have proven track records in more than 70 of the globe's top
100 network operators, and we're delighted that both established operators and
new market entrants continue to see the value in our highly relevant,
cutting-edge technologies."
    With Intec's mediation solution, Exatel, Novotel and Celcom will gain
full convergent mediation capabilities thereby enabling the rapid deployment
of new services and their respective ability to secure market growth. With
proven ability to handle the highest levels of traffic and multi-party
settlement with a variety of third party providers, Intec's InterconnecT
addresses the needs of dynamic operators dealing with both traditional and
next generation products and services. As well as preventing revenue leakage
and securing increased revenue streams, InterconnecT delivers rapid ROI,
within a minimal time-frame, on one fully flexible and scalable platform.
    BBCOM will derive immediate benefit from InterconnecT through driving
down the costs of its wholesale business for a limited investment. The deal
makes Intec the undisputed leader in the African wholesale billing market, the
 service bureau system affording emerging operators with a compelling economic
model, enabling them to 'pay as they grow'.
