BEIJING and SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- AsiaInfo Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ASIA) ("AsiaInfo" or the "Company"), a leading provider of telecom software solutions and IT security products and services in China, today announced that it has signed contracts with 11 of China Mobile's subsidiaries, including Beijing, Shanghai, Inner Mongolia, Liaoning, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Henan, Guangxi, Guizhou, Gansu and Tibet, to upgrade Business Operation Support Systems ("BOSS") to accommodate China Mobile's Phase II TD-SCDMA rollout.

China Mobile's Phase II TD-SCDMA rollout will extend TD-SCDMA coverage to all 31 provincial capitals and municipality-level cities in mainland China. The new system will support wireless broadband service, data card service, mobile video and other 3G-related services. In 2007, AsiaInfo provided BOSS software for Phase I of China Mobile's TD-SCDMA network construction, thus becoming the first vendor to develop billing and customer relationship management software to accommodate China's 3G rollout. For the second phase, AsiaInfo will upgrade China Mobile's Phase I TD-SCDMA BOSS installations and integrate them into existing provincial-level systems.

"Pushing forward the construction and operation of the TD-SCDMA network is one of China Mobile's key goals for 2009, and our longstanding relationship with the carrier brings us a number of opportunities in the 3G realm," said Steve Zhang, AsiaInfo's president and chief executive officer. "This year's rollout of 3G services in China will create demand for a multitude of new data services that carriers' billing systems will need to support. After completing billing systems for the first phase of China Mobile's TD-SCDMA commercial pilot, which we began in early 2007, we will now help China Mobile to add a number of new functionalities to support their ongoing TD-SCDMA requirements. These contracts demonstrate both the flexibility of our software solutions and the stickiness of our products."
