TMNG Global Unveils Network Lifecycle Management Services Portfolio to
Effectively Manage Network Assets

Advanced Services Enable Service Providers to Deliver Highest Level of
Customer Satisfaction, Seamlessly Launch New Services and Transition to New
Network Technology

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TMNG Global
(Nasdaq:TMNG), a premier provider of professional services and software
solutions to global leaders in the communications, digital media, and
technology industries, today announced the launch of its new portfolio of
services – Network Lifecycle Management Services (NLMS) – which provides the
methods, tools and expertise for operators to maintain the highest levels of
customer satisfaction while seamlessly implementing new, complex network
services and transitioning to new network technology. This ensures carrier
profitability, growth and maximum utilization of all network resources – both
new and legacy.

"Operators spend a significant percentage of total capital on their networks
and the current industry rightsizing is creating a fundamental issue for
service providers today," said Don Klumb, TMNG Global's CEO. "Carriers need to
implement new services and efficiently manage their new networks while
migrating customers and decommissioning their legacy networks. However,
priority must be given to customer satisfaction. The biggest challenge for
operators is striking the right balance between delivering superior customer
service, driving business growth initiatives and the need to effectively
manage network-related capital and operating costs."

TMNG's Network Lifecycle Management Services portfolio is a comprehensive set
of services designed to assist operators with increasing demands on resources
and the concurrent need to drive revenue growth with complex new services. The
Network Lifecycle Management Services portfolio supports the full range of
network lifecycle functions - from architecture and design through operations
and optimization, to planning and managing legacy network decommissioning and
customer migrations.

Developed specifically to address both strategic and operational goals of
service providers, the Network Lifecycle Management Services portfolio will
help operators design, implement and monetize complex multi-partner and
multi-technology voice, data and video services and manage network-related
costs for steady-state operational efficiency and maximum profitability. And,
when the time is right, the portfolio extends to planning and management of
legacy network decommissioning and migration of customers to next generation
network technologies and services.

Among the services delivered in TMNG Global's new Network Lifecycle Management
Services portfolio include:

  *Strategy and Architecture – Business and technical planning, cost
    benchmarking and capital build-out optimization
  *Operations and Optimization – Operations and systems effectiveness
    planning, on-net and off-net capacity and cost management, and advanced
    network data analytics and reporting
  *Decommissioning and Migration – Service and customer migration to new
    network technologies and decommissioning of legacy network assets
  *Managed Services– Fully outsourced telecom management for enterprise
    customers, including SLA validation and monitoring

As service providers evolve to new network technologies, they can expect
additional benefits. Careful planning will minimize customer impact associated
with migration and TMNG's advanced network data analytics and reporting,
industry-renowned program management and governance expertise and tools will
optimize execution to ensure the highest customer satisfaction.
