Xura's Message Controller (MCO) is NFV ready and incorporates next generation
SMS firewall for spam and fraud control

WAKEFIELD, Mass., 2016-10-20 07:01 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xura, Inc., a
leading provider of digital communications services, today announced an
agreement with the Telefónica Group to become a global messaging partner across
all countries1 operated by the multinational. As part of the agreement, Xura
will deploy its Message Controller (MCO) solution across Telefónica’s network,
providing an advanced, multifunctional messaging platform that will play a key
role in the evolution of the operator’s messaging infrastructure.

Enabling SMS and MMS services for the Telefónica Group, Xura Message Controller
can also be used as the launchpad for future IP-based services, and will
provide a wide range of intelligent routing functions and scenario analysis for
triggering sophisticated message handling and optimizing traffic. Additionally,
with Xura Message Controller, Telefónica will activate Xura’s next generation
SMS firewall including its SpamShield module, implementing real-time spam and
fraud detection techniques, unique self-learning algorithms and providing a
deep understanding of the network.

Xura Message Controller will flexibly integrate within Telefónica’s overall
networking ecosystem to reduce complexity and provide optimal efficiency for
greater return on investment (ROI) and, because the solution is fully
virtualized, it can be deployed in an NFV (Network Function Virtualization)
environment, improving efficiency and lowering costs.

"Our partnership with the Telefónica Group spans more than ten years, so we are
extremely pleased to close this exclusive agreement that reinforces our
long-standing relationship. Not only will this messaging framework
future-proof Telefónica’s messaging infrastructure but the new scope will mean
we can secure their networks and protect them against fraudulent activity, as
well as support them as they migrate to NFV,” said Philippe Tartavull, Chief
Executive Officer at Xura, Inc.

1 Exclusivity for Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Central
America, Mexico, Uruguay, Peru, Spain and Germany. Telefonica Brazil (Vivo) and
UK (O2) are not included in the agreement’s exclusivity clause.
