WALTHAM, Mass. -- January 22, 2013

NetCracker Technology announced today that Alestra, the leading Mexican
company in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) services, has
selected NetCracker to enhance its BSS in order to streamline its current
billing operations and support the launch of next-generation services.

Alestra provides telecommunications and information technology services, such
as Data Center, Cloud, and Security applications, vertical solutions for
specialized industries, in addition to consulting services for designing and
managing complex ICT projects to enterprises via its fiber optic and wireless
networks that supply connectivity to 198 cities in Mexico.

Alestra will use NetCracker’s BSS portfolio, including mediation, to provide
converged billing that will transform billing information from multiple
sources into a single data format. This functionality will give Alestra deeper
insights into the customer experience and will also lower OpEx and TCO by
eliminating a number of custom processes and applications. Flexible and highly
scalable, the NetCracker solution will also support charging and billing for
next-generation offerings, such as cloud services.

“The NetCracker solution will simplify Alestra’s billing operations and will
thereby reduce the time and investment needed to optimize their existing
system,” said Frank DeTraglia, NetCracker’s Vice President Global Sales. “We
are pleased to be bringing NetCracker’s unrivalled knowledge and experience to
Alestra’s transformation program, and we look forward to helping them position
their business for continued success in the future.”
