WARSAW and SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Kabira Technologies, Inc., a leader in extreme transaction processing software for global enterprises, and Capgemini Polska Sp z o.o., a member of the Capgemini Group, one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, announced the successful implementation of a new service provisioning system at Netia S.A., Poland's largest alternative provider of fixed-line and broadband telecommunications services. The new system was designed and implemented in only seven months, with ongoing maintenance services to be delivered by Capgemini Polska Sp z o.o.

In mid-2007, Netia announced its new operating strategy, focused on growth through dynamic expansion of its customer base, and by increasing customer value. Netia plans to build on new opportunities to access the fixed-line network of the incumbent operator (via bitstream access, local loop unbundling and wholesale line rental), and to capitalize on Netia's already strong position in the business market. In particular, Netia intends to become the market leader for broadband services in Poland, with the objective of acquiring one million broadband customers over the next three years. To help accomplish this, Netia selected the Kabira Provisioning and Service Activation™ (KPSA) platform to support the launch and activation of its new broadband services, ASDL access (including bitstream and LLU access), as well as VoIP, data and iDTV over ADSL. Netia also selected Capgemini Polska Sp z o.o. to manage the delivery, installation and implementation of this new service provisioning system and middleware platform.

"Netia is enjoying strong growth and therefore needed a flexible provisioning platform in order to adjust to challenging market conditions," said Jaroslaw Baczynski, chief information officer of Netia. "Replacing our in-house developed provisioning system with the Kabira Provisioning and Service Activation solution provides us with the ideal service fulfilment platform for managing both our existing and future requirements in a cost-efficient and 'future-proof manner.' KPSA gives us the ability to quickly provision and activate complex services, which is critical in today's intensely competitive Polish marketplace," Baczynski added. "Throughout this project, the Kabira and Capgemini teams have demonstrated a high level of professionalism. Capgemini Polska Sp z o.o. successfully managed the project's deliverables despite an aggressive timeline and wide scope. We are confident we have chosen the right partners to manage our growth effectively."

"We are pleased to have been appointed by Netia S.A. as their system integrator partner for delivering this mission critical project," said Wojciech Wojnar, TME director for Capgemini Polska Sp z o.o. "Capgemini has broad experience in the Telco sector and strong local competencies. I believe that this combination, together with our methodology of working with partners and clients, results in successful delivery." Wojnar continued, "This project is the first example of the working collaboration between Capgemini in Poland and Kabira Technologies to deliver solutions for the local telecommunications and financial sectors. Kabira has excellent reach in the telco industry, and the right strategy to address customer needs for high-volume, real-time transaction processing."
