WALTHAM, Mass. -- June 10, 2013

NetCracker Technology announced today that Canal Digital Kabel-TV has chosen
NetCracker’s next-generation BSS for a comprehensive transformation of its
billing environment. NetCracker’s Rating and Billing solution will completely
replace Canal Digital Kabel-TV’s legacy revenue management system and will
provide the flexibility and functionality needed to support the increasing
scope and complexity of the company’s product and service offerings.

Canal Digital Kabel-TV is the leading provider of HDTV to customers in Norway.
The company offers over 100 different TV channels in analog, digital, HD, or
3D quality via hybrid fiber-coaxial and fiber-to-the-home technologies. A
subsidiary of Telenor Norway, Canal Digital Kabel-TV also provides broadband
services and telephony.

Canal Digital Kabel-TV will first migrate its VoIP customers to the NetCracker
platform, followed by its digital TV and broadband customers. In addition to
handling all of Canal Digital’s current billing needs, NetCracker’s solution
will enable the company to meet the growing demands of customers for new
products and services — given its ability to handle the complex rating and
billing requirements of creative bundled offerings and next-generation
services such as multichannel video delivery. The NetCracker solution will
increase efficiencies associated with operating and maintaining the billing
system.

“The performance and stability of NetCracker’s billing solution have been
demonstrated at several of our sister companies within the Telenor Group,”
said Geir Inge Fevang, CIO of Canal Digital Kabel-TV. “Their experience with
the solution and its numerous benefits made the decision to replace our legacy
system with NetCracker’s BSS both easy and logical.”

“Upgrading its billing system will allow Canal Digital Kabel-TV to enhance the
service experience of its customers and maintain its leadership position in
the market,” said Sylvain Seignour, NetCracker’s Vice President Americas and
Europe. “NetCracker is pleased with this opportunity to help Canal Digital
achieve its operational goals and growth objectives — and with the opportunity
to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to bringing cost-effective, innovative
software solutions to our customers in the Nordic region.”
