Rodopi Software Joins the Motorola Canopy™ Wireless Broadband Affiliate Solutions Program

SAN DIEGO, Calif., May 5, 2004 - Rodopi Software, an industry leader in next generation operations support system (OSS) and back office automation software, today announced it has become a member of the Motorola Canopy™ (NYSE: MOT) wireless broadband Affiliate Solutions Program. As an affiliate Rodopi will offer an integrated back office automation platform to Canopy customers. Rodopi’s web-based customer acquisition, real-time activation, billing and customer management software will enable wireless service providers to go operational quickly. Rodopi’s turnkey solution is designed to minimize both the upfront capital investment and time to market inherent with traditional approaches to operational and business support systems.

The Rodopi solution will be delivered out of the box enabling full online e-business, pre-designed wireless service definitions with service bundles, and integrated provisioning for Motorola’s Canopy infrastructure. A highly cost-effective business model and unparalleled customer support can translate into a winning combination for both new and established wireless and converged services providers.

Motorola’s Canopy Wireless Broadband group, headquartered in Schaumburg, Ill., offers a secure, reliable and flexible wireless broadband solution for enterprise, public and private networks.

"The Rodopi product line offers wireless Internet service providers and other network operator customers a turnkey solution to streamline and automate operations that historically have relied on manual processes," said Tom Gruba, director of marketing and customer support for Motorola’s Canopy products. “With the increasing number of wireless service and hotspot providers , there is clear demand for an affordable back office solution that not only offers billing and customer management capabilities, but also provides service activation and customer care on a 24/7 basis. Because of these features and more, Rodopi Software will be an outstanding addition to our Affiliate Solutions Program.”

“This relationship was driven by requests from mutual Motorola and Rodopi customers to provide a more tightly integrated, turnkey solution to meet the pressures of launching and maintaining wireless services,” added Todd Benjamin, president and chief executive officer of Rodopi Software. “The fact that we have real world solutions already in place has demonstrated that our new relationship provides outstanding opportunities for both new and existing customers.”
