Xura, Inc.: Telefónica Group selects Xura as a global messaging partner

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

WAKEFIELD, Mass., Oct. 20, 2016 (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.
