TORONTO -- Syndesis is pleased to announce the signing of a new, four year guaranteed contract worth tens of millions of dollars with Telecom Italia for software solutions to enable next generation IP and DSL services including VPN, VLAN and MPLS. The agreement also includes optional components totaling an additional 15% of the contract value. With Syndesis as the anchor component of its comprehensive New Generation Operations Support System (NGOSS), Telecom Italia's Domestic Wireline Business Unit (TI Wireline) is already managing all ATM/FR, ADSL, IP, and IP-VPN services from a single engine and automating the provisioning of millions of lines with a common database. Under the agreement announced today, TI Wireline will continue to evolve its NGOSS based on Syndesis' technology, adding their new Ethernet, VLAN and MPLS services as well as options for SDH and DWDM. New functionality for ATM/FR, DSL, and VPN is also included to speed up the extension of services across Italy and beyond. This contract enables a rapid expansion of IP and second generation DSL service revenues while minimizing operational costs.

Since 2000, Syndesis and TI Wireline have been working together to centralize and consolidate the management of TI's entire pan-European broadband network. Through the adoption of NGOSS concepts and its partnership with Syndesis, TI Wireline has achieved unparalleled domestic growth and worldwide attention while expanding internationally and outpacing national Public Telephone and Telegraph (PTT) organizations in their own home markets.

"Syndesis has played a crucial role in Telecom Italia's success over the past four years, helping Telecom Italia to grow faster than any other major wireline provider in Europe," said Chris Swan, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Marketing and Alliances for Syndesis. "As other companies experience a decline in wireline revenues and subscribers, Telecom Italia has seen a 100+ percent increase in its Italian DSL subscriber base, a 156 percent growth in DSL-related revenues and an overall 86 percent growth in the DSL subscriber base outside of Italy. We look forward to the next phase of this partnership and, as always, Telecom Italia can rely on Syndesis to deliver."
