This is the second time that Xalted has been awarded a contract by Nepal Telecom for the installation and deployment of Xalted's xNODE Hardware, Software and Services.  The revenues expected to be generated by Xalted in connection with this expansion order is approximately US$ 200,000. The first contract for Xalted's xNODE solution was in 2009.

Nepal Telecom is one of the leading players in Nepal's telecommunications sector and provides GSM cellular telephone services to millions of subscribers. Nepal Telecom, which provides roaming services to postpaid subscribers in 75 districts of Nepal, has already been using Xalted's xNODE solution for GSM Roaming and NRTRDE-compliance. Xalted supplied, delivered, installed and commissioned successfully the initial GSM Roaming and NRTDTE solution for Nepal Telecom in 2009. This expansion order provides NTC with a 300% increase in capacity as compared to the previous implementations of the xNODE system. Additionally, Xalted's xNODE technology provides Nepal Telecom with a solution that reduces roaming charge revenue that would otherwise be lost by NTC as Xalted's xNODE can efficiently manage NTC's roaming related data transfer and Fraud detection systems.

"Nepal is a growing telecom market and the GSM operator NTC needed roaming revenue maximization solution that could help them achieve competitive advantage by offering advanced services in a faster way while keeping the total cost of ownership of solution lowest. We are proud that our Innovative technology solution has not only supported operator's vision to be a major player in the Nepal telecom market, but also accomplished the inherent need for revenue maximization.
