Challenger Mobile Enhances Its White-Label Mobile VoIP Platform

Technology Enables Wireless Operators to Rapidly Deploy Innovative, Branded mVoIP Offerings That Drive Utilization and ARPU

ROME, ITALY--(Marketwire - September 24, 2007) - Challenger Mobile, the white-label Mobile VoIP Company, today announced enhancements to its platform that help mobile operators, wireless ISPs, and related service providers deliver their own branded Mobile VoIP services to subscribers, while enjoying a fast time-to-market and a low cost of entry.

Challenger's white-label Mobile VoIP platform allows subscribers to place calls from their mobiles over the Internet, using a WiFi, GPRS or 3G connection. In addition to core Internet telephony capabilities, Challenger's platform supports remote mobile handset configuration, call detail record (CDR) support, and flexible billing system integration. For customers choosing Challenger's optional hosting service, the platform also includes attractive call termination capabilities and rates.

Mobile Voice over Internet Protocol (mVoIP) allows mobile phone users to make low cost worldwide Internet calls via WiFi, GRPS or 3G network technologies. Traditional VoIP phone services, such as Skype or Vonage, are typically delivered through a personal computer and LAN and are gaining worldwide acceptance -- especially as a replacement for expensive international calling. Mobile VoIP represents the logical next step for this technology -- shifting calls and functionality from wired handsets and PCs, to the mobile phone platform. Given the exploding popularity of mobile communications and the associated high-cost of international mobile calls, mVoIP is poised for rapid adoption by operators and subscribers alike.

"Mobile operators around the globe are recognizing the tremendous market opportunity associated with being on the leading edge of Mobile VoIP, and its inherent ability to drive subscriber utilization and ARPU," said Challenger Mobile CEO Christina Sundman. "We recognize this opportunity as well, and believe our white-label strategy is the best approach for delivering our innovative mVoIP platform to mobile subscribers around the globe."

Founded in 2001, Challenger began developing software applications for large call centers before subsequently transitioning into the Internet telephony market with softphone and call-back applications for mobile devices. After accumulating a worldwide base of subscribers with these applications, Challenger continued developing a robust suite of features and capabilities for its platform. Today, the company's single-minded focus on a white-label strategy is geared towards helping mobile operators and service providers deliver mobile VoIP solutions in the most effective manner possible, while also helping to establish Challenger as the leading provider of white-label Mobile VoIP platforms to the mobile communications industry.
