Seaside Communications Inc. Selects Azotel Simpler Platform for its Cable TV Networks

SYDNEY, NOVA SCOTIA and CORK, IRELAND--(Marketwire - Oct. 21, 2009) - Azotel, a world leader in subscriber management for the wireless broadband industry, today announced during the Enterprise Ireland Trade Mission to Canada led by the Deputy Prime Minister of Ireland, Mary Coughlan TD, that it has entered into an agreement with Seaside Communications to develop, install and support a subscriber management system for its Cable Networks.

Today's announcement follows on from the highly successful integration of the Azotel SIMPLer subscriber management platform at Seaside's wireless division, in delivering the Broadband for Rural Nova Scotia Initiative - making Nova Scotia one of the most connected jurisdictions in Canada and in North America.

The Azotel SIMPLer (Subscriber Information Management Platform) makes it simple for Operators to deliver services to it's customers. This is achieved by bringing together all information pertaining to a customer (subscriber) under the one "portal" view. In addition the services delivered to that customer are again controlled from that same "portal" view. Consequently SIMPLer is the one platform used across all Operator departments i.e. CRM, Dispatch, Provisioning, Service Delivery, Accounts, Help Desk, NOC, Marketing and Management.

According to Dean Abbass, Business Manager of Seaside, "The decision by the Seaside Group to work on migrating the Cable TV division to the SIMPLer platform represents the next steps in upgrading our infrastructure. High Quality, customized back end systems will allow us to serve our customers with greater care and run our business with more efficiency. It will provide us with a common platform on which to further develop and expand our business."

John O'Hare, CEO, Azotel commented: "We are delighted that Azotel has been awarded this new Canadian Cable TV contract. The Azotel team is already widely recognized as a world class leader in the development of integrated Core Network and Operational Support Systems for delivering wireless broadband services. This contract demonstrates that Azotel's technology is now also an excellent fit for businesses across the Cable industry opening up another multi-million dollar market for Azotel."
