An Alternative Roaming Solution From Argela

February 10, 2009

ISTANBUL, February 10 /PRNewswire/ — Argela, a leading next-generation
telecom solution provider, today announced their alternative roaming solution
has been launched by Turk Telekom. The service is called wireless
roaming(WIRO) and enables customers to make calls from their dual-mode
handsets with Wi-Fi support irrespective of their location, and also in the
absence of a SIM card in the handset. In addition to dual mode handsets, WIRO
can be used with PC and any SIP based phone. The service is available through
the Internet and provides the users with very attractive tariffs, apart from
enabling them to stay connected even if they are abroad. Although Turk
Telekom is the incumbent fixed/line telecom operator in Turkey, WIRO removes
the boundaries of coverage for the company and offers a perfect roaming
solution to its customers.

Commenting on the issue Dr. Paul Doany, CEO of Turk Telekom, said: “WIRO
added the always-carried on feature to the fixed phones. Now our customers
can make calls wherever they are and they are charged by their fixed phone
tariff. This definitely reduces the cost of communication.”

Mr. Bulent Kaytaz, CEO of Argela said: “WIRO, being a service developed
on Argela’s patented innovation Convergence Gateway, provides real benefits
to the telecom operators. It definitely increases customer loyalty and
provides a new revenue stream. We are happy to note that Turk Telekom is
getting very positive feedback and we are very enthusiastic to support Turk
Telekom even further in this convergence journey in the future.”
