Nakina Systems Selected for Prestigious Marketing Award

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - June 07, 2007) - Nakina Systems has won the 2007 TeleManagement Forum Excellence Award for "Best Trade Show Marketing Campaign." The award was given in recognition of Nakina's distinguished leadership and innovation in the OSS/BSS industry and for its creativity and ability to clearly differentiate its products and strategy from competitors through the use of marketing and trade show channels.

The TeleManagement Forum (TMF) launched the awards this year to recognize operators, system integrators and software companies that have made outstanding contributions towards 21st century telecom business transformation through noteworthy operational and service delivery initiatives. The independent judging panel was lead by Mick Reeves, the former Group Technology Officer of UK telecoms giant BT, and the winners were evaluated and selected by a group of leading industry experts.

"We've established this awards program to recognize companies who are making great contributions in the field of delivering service excellence," said Keith Willetts, Chairman and Founder, TeleManagement Forum. "This program will showcase the outstanding work done by our members in furthering TM Forum initiatives, such as Nakina Systems, as they shape the future of the industry."

"The TeleManagement Forum leads the industry in driving standards, interoperability, and education initiatives in the management of telecom networks and services and the OSS/BSS space," said Marco Pagani, Chairman and CEO of Nakina Systems. "Recognition as an innovative supplier by the TM Forum is validation of Nakina's strategy and growing success. Being selected in this category is a particular honor given the high caliber marketing of the other finalists that included Cisco Systems and Satyam, and it tells us that our message is resonating with service providers and that they find Nakina's value proposition compelling."

The TM Forum Excellence Awards were presented at a formal awards ceremony on the evening of Monday, 21 May 2007 during TeleManagement World Nice 2007.
