Gemalto: MEO rolls out operator billing using Gemalto's Netsize cloud-based billing services

Amsterdam, Apr. 8, 2014
- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
is providing its hosted and fully managedNetsize billing servicesplatform to
MEO. MEO is part of Portugal Telecom, Portugal's leading mobile operator with
more than seven million subscribers. The cloud-based solution eliminates the
need for MEO to create, manage and maintain its own online billing
infrastructure for third party services and supports seamless integration of
new services. MEO subscribers can now quickly and easily discover innovative
services such as gaming, e-books and music and pay for them via their MEO
mobile phone bill.

Gemalto, through its Netsize operation, is managing the integration of new
merchants intending to market apps and digital content to subscribers and
secure payment via the operator's billing system. These merchants link
directly to the Netsize single entry cloud-based billing platform provided in
software-as-a-service mode (SaaS), which offers the scalability to
accommodate both future growth and seasonal fluctuations in demand.

For MEO, the SaaS solution translates into a more than 50% cost reduction in
terms of initial investment and running expenses, compared to an in-house
solution. MEO subscribers benefit from the simplicity and convenience of
paying for an ever wider range of mobile content and services direct from
their phones.

"By outsourcing its entire online billing system and leveraging our
cloud-based services, MEO has entrusted Gemalto with the management of
sensitive payment flows
," added Frédéric Deman, Senior Vice President of Netsize at Gemalto. "This
reinforces Gemalto in its role of trusted third party, enabling MEO to
offer convenient, value adding services to its clients."
