TECNOMEN CHOSEN BY LUXCOMMUNICATIONS TO PROVIDE MMSC FOR 3G NETWORK IN
LUXEMBURG

Tecnomen has been selected by LuXcommunications S.A., Luxemburg’s
newest mobile operator, to provide its Multimedia Messaging Service
Centre (MMSC). Tecnomen MMSC will enable LuXcommunications to offer
innovative and exciting Multimedia Messaging Services (MMS), including
video messaging, on its 3G network. The Tecnomen platform will provide
all the elements required to enable LuXcommunications to launch an
innovative portfolio of multimedia and 3G services.

"We are looking forward to working closely with LuXcommunications to
support the launch of their 3G network with highly-appealing,
innovative services," said Kai Honetschläger, Managing Director,
Tecnomen GmbH. "For new market entrants like LuXcommunications it is
extremely important to create competitive advantage. The highly
favourable price/performance ratio and the flexibility of the value

added services platform are key factors that Tecnomen will contribute
to the successful launch of LuXcommunications’ operations."

"A key factor in our selection of Tecnomen’s platform was our need to
differentiate ourselves in a saturated mobile market with strong
competition," said a spokesperson of LuXcommunications. "Tecnomen
allows us to achieve both competitive pricing and quick time to market
for initial and future services. With Tecnomen’s solution we can also
position ourselves as a market driven company for content and
services."

Tecnomen MMSC is the essential core of the MMS environment. It
delivers a feature-rich range of multimedia messaging services that
can be easily customised and integrated with operators’ existing
services. It has the flexibility to support both existing and emerging
MMS business models, including the ability to host multimedia
messaging services for several virtual operators. It also features a
wide variety of billing options including prepaid, post-paid and
content-based billing with dynamic rating, as well as origin- and
destination-based billing.

The Tecnomen MMSC is a highly scalable platform with flexible "pay as
you grow" licensing, allowing operators to invest according to
customer demand and to expand their investment as the business grows.
Tecnomen MMSC is fully standards-compliant, adhering to 3GPP and OMA
standards for MMS. It is fully interoperable with all MMS phones and
with other vendors’ MMSCs, ensuring reliable message delivery. It also
enables operators to meet new regulatory requirements, such as Mobile
Number Portability.

The MMSC is part of Tecnomen Messaging, a modular service solution
that addresses all aspects of today's messaging needs and provides a
solid framework for meeting future needs with the most advanced
technology available. With Tecnomen Messaging, operators and service
providers can build suitable combinations of services to respond to
the needs of their market segments and target groups.
