HELSINKI, November 6 /PRNewswire/ --

- Orascom Telecom Subsidiary Will use Comptel Solution to Improve Fulfillment Processes for Mobile Services

Comptel Corporation (OMX Helsinki: CTL1V), the leading vendor of dynamic Operations Support System (OSS) software, announced today that Algerian mobile operator Orascom Telecom Algerie OTA (Djezzy), a fully owned subsidiary of Orascom Telecom Holding, has selected Comptel Provisioning and Activation Solution. This deal follows the announcements in 2007 of Comptel being chosen as preferred supplier by Orascom Telecom, and of the subsequent selection by Orascom joint venture Tunisiana.

After Orascom Telecom won the 2nd mobile license in Algeria in 2001, Djezzy has grown rapidly. In May 2008 Djezzy reached 14 million subscribers and 63% market share in a 3 players market. OTA found that their existing solution for provisioning and activating services had to be enhanced to meet the growing demand.

Tamer El Mahdy, CEO at OTA said: We chose Comptel because the reliable delivery of services to our customers is one of our main focuses. Comptel's provisioning and activation solution has been proven time-and-time again at operators across the world, including of course other Orascom subsidiaries.

Comptel Provisioning and Activation Solution automates the provisioning and activation processes. With a single interface, it covers the entire workflow - from service order to start of billing.

Mr. Simo Saaskilahti, Comptel's Senior Vice President Products and Solutions, concludes: Comptel is really pleased to welcome OTA to the already impressive list of Comptel's customers in North Africa and to be deepening our relationship. We feel this is a real proof-point of our reliable delivery.
