Kabira Technologies to Showcase Innovative Telecommunications Solutions at AfricaCom 2009

Company Draws From Experience Delivering Solutions in 15 Countries Across Africa

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - October 30, 2009) - Kabira Technologies, a leading telecommunications software provider, will be exhibiting at the largest annual Pan-African telecommunications event, AfricaCom 2009, to be held November 11th and 12th at the Cape Town Convention Centre in South Africa. The company will showcase some of its successful deployments across the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region and the latest advancements for its Kabira Service Aware™ (KSA), Kabira Provisioning and Service Activation™ (KPSA) and Kabira Mobile Transaction Hub™ (KMTH) solutions.

"Telecommunications service providers throughout Africa are experiencing the rapid emergence of services that were not even on their roadmap two years ago," said Manish Gupta, vice president of global marketing for Kabira. "Kabira's telecommunications domain expertise and extensive deployment experience has enabled us to deliver solutions with a unique combination of agility, performance and cost-efficiency." Gupta added, "Because of this, we have been able to offer solutions to service providers across Africa that are designed to deliver the high-performance those operators need, along with the ability to more rapidly provide their subscribers new offerings they demand."

At AfricaCom 2009, Kabira will discuss some of its deployments at African-based operations, and how the company enables network operators to drive new revenue streams and create differentiated service offerings.

"Over the past year, operators in Africa have expended significant effort to align their provisioning, charging and policy processes to address new revenue opportunities in mobile data and broadband, as well as to improve their customer satisfaction in a fast changing multi-SIM market," commented Jean-Bernard Guyonnaud, vice president EMEAR sales for Kabira. "They have also pioneered initiatives for mobile money and remittances. Kabira is committed to helping service providers across Africa and the Middle East drive profitable revenue by providing solutions that are cost-effective and adapted to their local market dynamics."

Kabira Service Aware is designed to enable operators to monetize data traffic by mapping and managing real-time usage to profiles and policies cached within the solution.

The Kabira Mobile Payments offering includes an innovative combination of rich and compelling payment services (Mobile Money, e-Top up, International Hub, M-Commerce). Today, the Kabira Mobile Payments solution serves more than 80 million subscribers and enables at least one operator to handle traffic in excess of 6 million transactions per day.

Kabira Provisioning and Service Activation offers a new level of sophistication and efficiency for service providers. It is designed to enable providers to meet the performance and complexity of new services such as real-time subscriber self-care and self-activation. As a configurable eTOM (enhanced Telecom Operation Map) compliant fulfilment solution, KPSA has now been extended with new dynamic network inventory, order handling and management components.

Kabira's telecommunications solutions are currently deployed in over 15 African countries. The company continues extending across Africa and is currently increasing its focus on the West African market around Nigeria and the East African market around Kenya.
