WAKEFIELD, Mass., Feb. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comverse
(Nasdaq:CNSI) today announced that Hutchison Telecom Lanka has selected
the Comverse(R) Mobile Internet Data Management and Monetization(TM)
(DMM) solution with the DMM Policy Studio(TM) to upgrade its mobile

"With rapidly growing data traffic elevating mobile broadband to an
increasingly central role in Sri Lankan telecommunications, our mission
is to deliver the best user experience possible -- dynamic, responsive

the DMM Policy Studio is a game changer for us -- a key tool we sought
to enable us to be first to market with creative, cost-effective data
service innovations."

Introduced last year, Comverse DMM Policy Studio has gained market
momentum. Its unique capabilities allow for the fast and simple
creation of new data services and plans, and have led it to be selected
for deployment by a number of service providers around the world, and
it has been honored with distinction as an esteemed industry award

"With the highest independently confirmed performance and scalability
stats, the Comverse Data Management and Monetization solution with the
Policy Studio is the right choice for leading operators like Hutchison
Telecom Lanka to gain the agility needed to handle and monetize the
massive data traffic growth anticipated now and in the future with LTE
