Pyro Networks Named as Finalist in 2008 Global Mobile Awards

    Nominated in the 'best roaming product or service' category,
    Pyro Network's InRoam technology helps 400 million subscribers across
    Africa stay connected while roaming

    ANDHRA PRADESH, India, Feb. 4 /CNW/ -- Pyro Networks, a mobile solutions
provider, is proud to announce that its InRoam solution has been selected as a
finalist in the 2008 Global Mobile Awards. Pyro Networks has been nominated in
the "best roaming product or service" category -- proving that they have the
innovative ideas and technical expertise to provide a successful answer to the
issues associated with billing and charging for roaming with a pre-paid
wireless plan.
    Currently being utilized by Zain's subsidiary Celtel in their "One
Network", Pyro Network's InRoam technology is enabling 400 million people in
12 countries to stay connected while roaming across Africa in one borderless
mobile network that covers an area more than twice the size of Europe.
    "The 2008 Global Mobile Awards have once again attracted a widely diverse
range of entries from all corners of the world, demonstrating the social,
business and economic impact that mobile communications is having on society,"
said Rob Conway, CEO of GSMA. "I congratulate the nominees on their
achievement thus far. Being short-listed by our independent judging panel is
no mean feat given the caliber of subject matter experts it comprises, and the
quality and quantity of submissions received. We await the winners at the
Mobile World Congress with keen interest."
    The InRoam solution addresses the key issues associated with roaming when
using a pre-paid calling plan. When faced with the challenge of roaming on
pre-paid plans, operators need a way for subscribers to carry their "Home-
Experience" and recharge their pre-paid accounts as simply as if they were in
the home network.
    "We are delighted to be a finalist in consideration for this prestigious
award," said SM Reddy, Managing Director of Pyro Networks. "Our InRoam
platform enables carriers to offer their pre-paid subscribers the same
communication experience as in their home country and with the option for
subscribers to refill/top-up a pre-paid phone card in a different network
effortless and hassle-free The implementation with Celtel's "One Network"
truly illustrates how our InRoam solution is transforming the industry and
providing the carriers with increased customer acquisition, MoU, roaming
revenues and customer loyalty, while also providing immense value to their
subscribers," Mr. Reddy continued.
