SAO PAULO, Brazil -- LogicaCMG today announced it has signed an agreement to deploy its Short Messaging Service Centre (SMSC) for Hutchison Telecommunications Paraguay, a telecommunications operator in Paraguay. This contract win increases LogicaCMG's market share in South America and confirms its leadership position in the region.

Hutchison is one of four mobile telephony operators in Paraguay, which has a population of over six million and a mobile phone penetration rate approaching 20 per cent. Hutchison has recently launched the service Port-hable in Paraguay - a high quality GSM service that delivers significant benefits to the local market.

"We are very excited about the prospects for text message services", said Gabriel Giussani, Hutchison Paraguay's Marketing Manager. "SMS is an important part of our business plan for this year and we selected a messaging platform that could support both our ambitious growth plans and the innovative services we are offering in our market."

"The contract consolidates our position in the continent and shows the local market why we are the leaders," he added.

LogicaCMG's SMSC is the only SMS product that has all the main cell network technologies and maintains, at the same time, a reliable, flexible and scalable performance.
