AsiaInfo Wins First European Mobile Operator Deal

Company to lead major BSS transformation project with Telenor Project supports shift to multi-channel data-centric customer service

(PresseBox) ( Beijing, China/Santa Clara, Calif/Cambridge, UK, )
AsiaInfo-Linkage, Inc. (Nasdaq: ASIA), Asia's leading supplier of BSS systems, today announced that it had secured its first major business support system (BSS) contract with a top tier European operator group. The contract is with Telenor ASA (Telenor Group), which has operations in seven European countries. The win represents AsiaInfo's first project with a top-tier European operator group after the company formally launched operations in the EMEA region last year.

As lead contractor, AsiaInfo will steer Telenor's BSS transformation for the company's operations in Denmark, as well as provide implementation, operational, and maintenance support. The project will include AsiaInfo's proprietary billing, customer relationship management, and real-time analytics software, including the Company's Veris™ BSS solution. Veris is designed to leverage the efficiencies of a cloud-based platform while radically simplifying the customer support operations associated with typical legacy systems, and currently serves more than 890 million users in Asia. Work on the project began in September of this year.

Telenor Denmark CEO Marek Slacik said: "The development of a new IT platform is crucial in our ongoing efforts to create a new, simpler and more efficient Telenor, and we have high expectations in AILK as our partner on this journey."

AsiaInfo's President and CEO Steve Zhang said, "The focus of our project with Telenor is customer service and engagement. By deploying our proven software solutions, our goal will be to greatly enhance the customer experience for Telenor users. Furthermore, this is a significant contract win for our European team and reflects the versatility of our products, as well as our ability to tailor them for customers anywhere in the world."
