    Joint Offering Helps Service Providers Quickly Introduce
Revenue-Generating Content, Voice, And Data Services Packages
    Kabira(TM) Technologies Inc., a provider of adaptive real-time
infrastructure software for the creation of revenue-generating
network-based services, announced today that HighDeal, a leading
provider of software that manages value-based pricing, rating, and
billing for telecommunications, content and online services, has
joined the Kabira Ecosystem Partner Program. The immediate result of
the partnership is the creation of a full-featured adapter between
the Kabira ObjectSwitch platform and HighDeal's convergent rating
engine, one of three modules that comprise HighDeal Software
    "Content rating is a key factor enabling service providers to
generate new revenue," says Jean-Claude Sotto, Alliances Director for
Europe. "Kabira xDR Mediation solutions combined with HighDeal's
convergent rating engine offer a flexible and off-the-shelf solution
for service providers who wish to bill in prepaid or postpaid modes
for multiparty services."
    The HighDeal-Kabira adapter will enable telecommunications and
online services customers to price, rate and bill for convergent
service packages that include prepaid content and online services. In
addition, HighDeal's powerful and highly intuitive GUI provides a
common platform that IT, marketing, sales, and finance departments
all can use to create, test, and instantly implement flexible pricing
    "As a result of this partnership, HighDeal and Kabira now offer
one of the industry's most advanced, off-the-shelf solutions for the
value-based pricing and rating of content as a component of a
convergent services package," says Rupert Trollope, VP business
development, HighDeal.
