Global Crossings Set to Open European Services Branch

February 9, 2005
February 9, 2005 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Global Crossing today announced the establishment of Global Crossing's Wireless Services Exchange(TM), an extranet community for mobile network operators providing high-quality global connectivity to support the convergence of voice, multimedia messaging, video calling and other IP services that will ride across 3G networks under Simon Clayton-Mitchell as vice president.

"This appointment underlines our commitment to evolve with the wireless market as the demand grows for high-quality IP services to support converged mobile communications services," said John Legere, Global Crossing's CEO.

Global Crossings will initially concentrate on the European market. Wireless Services Exchange provides mobile network operators (MNOs) with a simplified interconnection structure from a neutral provider with global reach. This single connection supports MNOs' current voice and video applications as well as the imminent convergence with IP data services.

"Simon's background in developing market entry strategies will give new impetus to the progress we have made in engaging with pan-European wireless service providers to create a multi-party exchange for the international transport of mobile services," said Phil Metcalf, managing director of Global Crossing's UK business, who oversees the Wireless Services Exchange business unit.

The initial introduction of Global Crossing's Wireless Services Exchange will deliver international mobile-to-mobile routing with caller line identity (CLI) and point-to-point video with differentiated billing. The second release, to be launched later in 2005, will include global roaming exchange services (GRX), short messaging services (SMS) and multimedia messaging services (MMS).
