PARIS -- Alcatel (Paris: CGEP. PA and NYSE: ALA) announced today that Alcatel's "intelligent GGSN" solution has been selected by Tele2, a Swedish mobile operator and one of the most successful alternative operators in Europe, in order to facilitate flexible billing of 2G & 3G data traffic.

Alcatel's intelligent GGSN (GPRS Gateway Support Node) is a very strategic core element for the deployment of mobile data services as it allows operators to charge their subscribers differently according to the type of content subscribers wish to access or the way they prefer to access this content. For example, a user will have the possibility to pay different prices for sending an MMS or enjoying a music video clip via video streaming, or different prices for instantaneous access versus delayed access to the results of a sports event. Furthermore, in order to secure deployment, Alcatel's intelligent GGSN offers open interfaces based on telecom standards

Marc Rouanne, chief operating officer of Alcatel's mobile communications activities declared: "The personalization of Tele2's mobile services made possible by Alcatel's intelligent solution is an integral element of Alcatel's user-centric broadband strategy. We are glad to have been selected as Tele2's partner."
