Intrado Subsidiary bmd wireless and 724 Solutions to
Develop Mobile Services Solution

NEW ORLEANS--(CCNMatthews - Mar 14, 2005) -

Solution Accelerates Content Delivery, Safeguards Subscribers, and
Lowers Operational Costs

Intrado Inc. (Nasdaq:TRDO), a global provider of integrated data and
telecommunications solutions, and 724 Solutions (Nasdaq:SVNX) (TSX:SVN),
a leading provider of next-generation IP-based network and data
services, today announced that Intrado subsidiary bmd wireless and 724
Solutions have agreed to jointly develop and cooperatively market an
enhanced service management and message delivery solution. The agreement
between the two companies to combine capabilities will help mobile
network operators accelerate content delivery, reduce operational costs
and increase the value of their service offerings.

The solution integrates 724's X-treme Service Activity Manager (XSAM)
with key service enablers from bmd wireless including SMS Spam Filtering
and SMS direct delivery. XSAM, deployed at mobile operators serving more
than 40 million subscribers throughout the United States, Europe and
Asia, standardizes and automates the lifecycle management and billing of
content services, enabling mobile operators and third parties to rapidly
deploy, manage and deliver a rich portfolio of advanced WAP, J2ME, HTTP,
MMS and SMS-based mobile data services with dynamic workflow processes
that can be easily adapted to changing needs. SMS Spam Filtering enables
mobile operators to effectively detect, filter and block unwanted SMS
messages from any network. SMS direct delivery reduces operational costs
by allowing transfer of incoming messages directly to an application or
a person.

"With mobile operators focused on the importance of mobile content to
enhance revenues, successful deployment of each service can vary greatly
in technical requirements," said Dan Hoskins, Intrado senior vice
president, sales and market development. "This integrated solution
reduces the complexity in content support, provisioning and delivery,
allowing operators to add significant value to the transaction stream
and achieve their time-to-market objectives."

"As data services offerings become more competitive, mobile operators
that can offer valuable, relevant content, while preventing the delivery
of harmful or unwanted content, will be well positioned to grow data
revenues," said John Sims, CEO of 724 Solutions.
