WOKING, England & ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- November 06, 2012

CSG International (NASDAQ: CSGS), a global provider of software- and
services-based business support solutions that help clients generate revenue
and maximize customer relationships, today announced that Wataniya Telecom,
92.1% owned by Qatar Telecom (QTel), has selected CSG Interconnect^® as the
wholesale billing management solution for its operation in Kuwait.

Wataniya Telecom is a leading mobile operator in Kuwait and has multiple
domestic and international telecoms partners including for voice, data and
SMS/MMS interconnection. CSG Interconnect will automate partner management,
carrier-to-carrier rating, billing and settlement and help speed disputes
management and reconciliation. It will provide Wataniya Telecom with detailed
financial reporting as well as interfaces to other systems. Previously
wholesale billing was handled manually.

“With the growth of our wholesale operation we recognized the opportunity to
review and improve our partner agreements and settlement management
processes,” said Hisham Siblini, Chief Technology Officer at Wataniya Telecom
in Kuwait. “We chose to implement CSG Interconnect knowing our parent company
QTel and our operations in Algeria and Tunisia have won great results from
doing so. Additionally, we valued being able to work closely with CSG’s
regional services team in Dubai.”

CSG Interconnect is a market-leading wholesale business management solution
handling every kind of network traffic for local, regional and worldwide
operators in a single, highly integrated platform. The solution is part of
CSG’s Wholesale Business Management Solution (WBMS) which provides
highly-efficient partner management, optimized traffic trading and routing
through the network, accurate billing and settlement for all services
including traditional voice, data, IP/content and GSMA roaming services. WBMS
offers a pre-integrated combination of CSG's proven products including its
latest acquisition, Ascade 7, which provides end-to-end process support for
the supply chain of trading and exchanging voice traffic between operators.

“As operators grow, the wholesale business either becomes an important
revenue-generator, or an expensive cost center,” said John Rainger, Vice
President of EMEA, CSG International. “CSG Interconnect offers all operators -
local, regional and global - the opportunity to optimize their
carrier-to-carrier billing and settlements processes and we welcome Wataniya
Telecom in Kuwait as our newest customer in the region.”
