  Smith Micro Launches Integrated Voice and Video Messaging Platform, Opening
  New Revenue Opportunities for Mobile Network Operators

  New CommSuite platform enables operators to capitalize on modern messaging
              channels and better compete with over-the-top apps

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- February 12, 2013

Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and
mobility solutions, today announced the availability of their CommSuite®
solution, an advanced voice and video messaging platform for mobile operators.
The platform is designed to help operators generate new revenue streams and
revitalize legacy voicemail systems through integrated, rich media
communications such as video and avatar messaging, live videocast,
voice-to-text transcription, and social sharing of messages.

As voice and text-based communications evolve into rich media communications,
the rapid growth of video messaging applications, such as Skype, Tango and
QikVideo, is having a negative impact on mobile operators’ bottom lines.
Global analyst firm Ovum estimates operators will lose $54 billion in SMS
revenues by 2016, due to the increasing popularity of social messaging
services on smartphones. CommSuite from Smith Micro addresses this market
shift by providing an integrated yet modular communications platform that
allows operators to offer a wide range of visual messaging services, from
ad-sponsored Visual Voicemail to premium features such as Videomail,
Avatarmail and Videocast.

“There is no reason for operators to be left out of the huge market for video
and social messaging that is being swept up by over-the-top providers today,”
said Jim Mains, senior vice president of global products and programs, Smith
Micro Software. “With the footprint they have in the market and prime
real-estate on the device, operators are in a unique position to offer a more
convenient, richer way for subscribers to communicate. CommSuite not only
provides the video messaging features to compete with over-the-top apps, but
also offers expanded revenue opportunities through advertising, in-app service
purchases, and add-on content, such as personal avatars for a customized
messaging experience.”
