STERLING, Va. -- September 23, 2013

Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a trusted, neutral provider of real-time
information and analysis to the communications services, financial services,
retail, and media and advertising sectors, today announced service offers that
help Communications Service Providers (CSPs) as they upgrade their networks to
meet the increased bandwidth demands of their customers. The Neustar offers
include a complete workflow solution to order and provision new classes of
service, and fully-managed engineering support to conduct the physical network
configuration services associated with the change.

“CSPs are transitioning their network technologies to help their customers
fully engage the digital world and Neustar provides a full set of offers in
support of those transitions,” said Jean Foster, vice president of Carrier
Services at Neustar. “Key to those transitions is the ability to provision
network access services wherever the customers need them. Neustar is at the
forefront of enabling CSPs to accomplish this by providing ordering interfaces
with a nation-wide network of providers and engineering support for a
comprehensive workflow solution for next-generation network access.”

The new offers include:

  *Ethernet Ordering: provides a full workflow solution for a low-touch, less
    manual order process for new classes of service; and
  *Professional Services support: for physical network configuration and
    program management that speeds implementation and augments the access
    ordering offer.

“Neustar has a proven history of streamlining provisioning, so extending our
clearinghouse model to include Ethernet access brings additional value to
CSPs,” said Foster. “We manage the interconnections so our customers can focus
on upgrading their network and acquiring new business. As CSPs expand their
footprint in new territories, our turn-key engineering support brings the best
engineering talent with localized knowledge, experience and relationships to
provide a cohesive and comprehensive solution.”

Neustar Ethernet Ordering helps CSPs reduce order rejection processing and
speeds time to revenue by ensuring orders are compliant with the standards of
the Metro Ethernet Forum, the Ordering and Billing Forum Access Service
Ordering Guidelines and carrier-specific business rules. Since 2002, Neustar
has provided efficient order management solutions in a hosted solution that
allows CSPs to focus on and grow their business.
