Telogic USSD Gateway with Menu Browsing features launched by prominent GSM operator in Pakistan

K.Lumpur, Malaysia, July 18, 2006 -- Telogic, a leading provider of telecommunications network management solutions as well as solutions for mobile/fixed value added services, has successfully deployed and launched its USSD Menu Browsing solution for a leading mobile operator in Pakistan. Unstructured Supplementary Services Data (USSD) is a session-based technology, which is provisioned in GSM networks, that enables instantaneous connection and delivery of interactive services.

Telogic USSD Menu Browsing is a user-friendly mobile interactive application offering instant access to various services via text-based menu list. The operator defined only a single service number (e.g. *123#), and it will return a list of available sub-services (in a menu-based format) to the mobile subscriber who has initiated the request. This provides utmost convenience for subscribers as they are no longer required to memorize a list of specific short codes and text keywords for each service.

“This is one of the many value-added mobile solutions Telogic have developed to help our customers increase their revenue i.e. average revenue per user, while reinforcing strategic competitive differentiation and brand identity. The USSD Menu Browsing solution provides greater convenience to mobile subscribers in accessing the services provided by the operators, which will in turn, translates to higher revenue for the operators. We are confident that mobile operators will appreciate the many revenue-generating opportunities that this solution presents and the value it will bring to their subscribers”, says Mr. Lim Thian Pin, the Country Manager of Telogic Malaysia who oversees the South East Asia, South Asia (Indian sub-continent) and Middle East markets.

Apart from the USSD Menu Browsing service, the same platform is also enabled with other USSD-based services, namely, Balance Enquiry, Voucher Recharge, Call Me Back, and E-Topup service etc. The services have received overwhelming response from subscribers since its launch, and Telogic is already working to assist in working on the expansion plan to extend these successful services.
