LONDON -- LogicaCMG today announced it has been selected to provide a Next Generation Messaging solution to Wataniya Algeria. Wataniya has secured one of three GSM network licences awarded in Algeria, strengthening its position as a key mobile operator in the region. This is the first major mobile infrastructure project for LogicaCMG in Algeria and this deal has been won through LogicaCMG's longstanding strategic partnership with Siemens Mobile Networks.

Wataniya Algeria is deploying the Next Generation Messaging architecture that provides network operators with a cost-effective solution in every phase of market development whilst preparing networks to accommodate future service demands. LogicaCMG's Next Generation SMSC will support the launch of its range of value-added SMS and content delivery services targeting both consumer and corporate users. The ability to provide these advanced messaging capabilities will unlock new SMS market opportunities for Wataniya in Algeria, increasing potential revenue generation and enabling it to speed the return on investment for the region. Wataniya Algeria and Siemens Mobile Networks selected LogicaCMG for its proven experience in mobile messaging.

Mr. Joseph Ged, Chief Technical Officer at Wataniya Telecom, said: "The market for mobile services is growing at an astonishing rate in Algeria, creating exciting new opportunities for us as a major provider of SMS and other value-added mobile services. Our strategy to invest in new markets such as this has led to us operating GSM networks in several high-growth territories, including Kuwait and Iraq where we are also working with LogicaCMG. We are pleased to continue developing this business relationship in the confidence that we are building a solid platform for our mobile services."
