SAN DIEGO -- January 30, 2013

Telco Systems, a BATM company (LSE: BVC,TASE: BATM) and developer of
multi-service Carrier Ethernet access, MPLS and SDN solutions for mobile
backhaul, business Ethernet services and cloud networking, is among the first
group of vendors to receive the Metro Ethernet Forum Carrier Ethernet 2.0
certification (CE 2.0). Telco Systems meets this new-generation standard with
their CE 2.0-compliant end-to-end Ethernet product portfolio, promising a
significant boost for large, medium and small service providers, as well as
utilities and city carriers competing in a fast evolving telecommunications

"Our MEF CE 2.0-certified Carrier Ethernet solutions enable a service-centric
network with new levels of capacity, scalability and reliability, while
ensuring greater cost-efficiency and competitiveness," says Moshe Shimon, VP
of product line management for Telco Systems. "Our solutions, combined with
the assurance of MEF CE 2.0 certification, allow providers to confidently
offer new broadband business and wholesale services with greater flexibility,
to address customers’ evolving needs. Among the benefits of certified
solutions are faster deployments of assured services, monitored and managed in
real-time. and simpler interoperability with other carriers’ networks. We’ll
see some more mid-site and regional providers like NebraskaLink and Wemacom
snapping at the big players’ heels in 2013!"

CE 2.0 extends the original Carrier Ethernet standards with vital added
features, including multiple classes of service, greater manageability and
easier interconnect for all eight standard service types. These enable new
levels of efficiency for mobile backhaul, and make it easier for a large
number of access providers to join the Carrier Ethernet community and
establish Carrier Ethernet as a business class cloud service carrier.
According to Nan Chen, President, MEF, “The main market drivers continue to
dominate business: bandwidth growth, mobile data and LTE migration and the
growth of public and private cloud computing.”

Bob Mandeville, President and Founder of test lab Iometrix, Inc., responsible
for the certification process, congratulated the first group of twenty
companies to win certification, saying, “CE 2.0 is a difficult accreditation
to achieve. To be recognized as CE 2.0 compliant, each company must pass a
suite that totals 690 stringent tests. Over 160 companies are now certified
for CE 1.0, and the adoption signs for 2.0 are exciting, as the demand for
certified products and services is a driving force.”
