TORONTO – October 17, 2013 Redknee Solutions Inc. (TSX: RKN), a leading provider of business-critical billing and charging software and solutions for communications service providers, is pleased to announce that an acquired customer, and leading telecoms operator in APAC with over 35 million mobile subscribers, has signed a multi-million dollar contract for Redknee’s converged billing solution.

Following the completion of the recent acquisition by Redknee, this contract demonstrates the confidence in Redknee and its highly scalable and flexible monetization and subscriber management solutions for communications service providers (CSPs).
With the rise in data services and increasing competition in the APAC market, mobile operators are encouraging the adoption of more lucrative postpaid and data services by offering customized subscriptions to price-sensitive consumers.

Redknee’s converged billing solution enables the operator with a single platform to deliver innovative tariffs and price plans faster to the market on its 3G, 4G and LTE networks. Available on-premise, cloud-based and as a Software-as-a-Service offering, Redknee’s scalable solution supports operators to maximize the value of their network and efficiently maintain multi-party partnerships to meet their growth goals.
