MANCHESTER, N.H., Dec. 19, 2000 – Granite Systems, a communications software provider of network and service resource management solutions, announced its agreement with Cap Gemini Ernst & Young Telecom Media Networks Group (TMN Group). The alliance will allow the Cap Gemini Ernst & Young TMN Group to offer Granite Systems' Xpercom platform for network and service resource management as part of its operations support system (OSS) implementation services for communications providers.

Cap Gemini Ernst & Young TMN Group offers a multitude of consulting and implementation services to the telecommunications industry, including billing and customer administration, customer relationship management, new service launch, next generation networks launch and operations optimization. The addition of Xpercom's functionality will enable Cap Gemini Ernst & Young TMN Group to provide its customers with a network and service resource management solution that serves as a single network image to guide provisioning, maintenance and engineering. The alliance between Granite Systems and Cap Gemini Ernst & Young TMN Group is the result of an implementation on behalf of a major wireless provider.

``Our customers demand the best products and services in our implementations,'' said Heinz Bisutti, business unit vice president of Cap Gemini Ernst & Young TMN Group. ``One of our current implementations requires the ability to provide total network and service resource management. We chose Xpercom because it is one of the best products on the market for our needs and will allow us to continue to exceed our customers' expectations.''
