Syndesis Named Finalist for "Best Overall Company" in Billing & OSS World 2006 Excellence Awards

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2006 -- Syndesis has been named as a finalist for "Best Overall Company" in the Billing & OSS World 2006 Excellence Awards, which recognize the best vendors in the billing and operations support system (OSS) segment of the telecommunications industry.

Syndesis was selected as a finalist based on its Convergent Service Delivery Management (CSDM) solutions, which are powering IPTV and Triple Play service delivery and serving as a basis for consolidated operations at three leading communications service providers (CSPs) in North America and Europe. Syndesis was chosen as the technology partner and provisioning solution for these IPTV and Triple Play initiatives based, in large part, on a proven track record in the account. In each implementation, Syndesis is speeding the introduction and cost-effective delivery of next generation services and enabling the CSP to collapse and streamline operations systems and processes. Syndesis® NetProvision™ is a central and critical component in each carrier's next generation OSS strategy, playing a unifying role in the operations architecture by synchronizing the integrated operations suite with the network and by automating the provisioning and activation of network facilities and subscriber services. NetProvision is a core component of Syndesis' CSDM solutions for Triple Play, which automate critical steps in service creation and delivery while ensuring other OSS/BSS functions are synchronized with the service delivery process.

In addition, Syndesis demonstrated its superior internal processes as well as the company's commitment to customer service, support and quality. The company detailed its ongoing work with a major European CSP that has aggressively implemented new and expanded service offerings based on IP technologies. Syndesis provided several solutions from its CSDM suite of products, addressing the carrier's needs to roll out next-generation IP services efficiently and rapidly. Within this account, Syndesis solutions have been implemented for integrated broadband discovery, provisioning, and activation as part of a streamlined Next Generation Operations Systems and Software (NGOSS) with a common, complete view of the network and one service delivery chain for existing and emerging services, including IP-VPNs, IP Paths, ADSL, ATM/FR, DSL and, most recently, IPTV. Syndesis has served as a key partner in this CSP's total broadband management vision and as an anchor for the carrier's new operations infrastructure since 2002.

"The Billing & OSS World Excellence Awards honor the leading companies and achievements in our industry and we are excited that Syndesis is viewed as a strong contender in this particularly prestigious category,” said Mark Fowlie, Chief Marketing Officer for Syndesis. "Syndesis is the ultimate partner for many of the world's largest telecommunications companies and we have earned a solid reputation for delivering everything that we promise and more. Our 100% success record in over 20 years of operations says it all -- proven products, deep domain expertise and the world’s leading service providers as referenceable customers."

Winners will be announced at an awards gala in Miami on May 3rd as TeleStrategies kicks off Billing & OSS World 2006.
