/PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- ACE*COMM Corporation (Nasdaq:   ACEC),
 the innovator of Convergent Mediation(TM) and provider of Next Generation
 Network (NGN) Operations Support Systems (OSS) technologies, announced a
 marketing and technology partnership with Geneva Technology, a leading
 international provider of revenue management software for the
 telecommunications, IP/Internet, utilities and on-line services marketplaces.
     The alliance will address customer demands for comprehensive solutions by
 pairing the market's leading mediation company and leading provider of
 convergent billing solutions. Mediation software like ACE*COMM's interprets
 network events and feeds the data to a billing solution like Geneva for rating
 the service provided and invoicing the customer. Under the partnership,
 ACE*COMM and Geneva Technology will jointly develop sales, marketing and
 technology initiatives designed to demonstrate the compatibility of their
 respective products in providing highly scalable mediation and billing
 solutions to major carriers handling large volumes of data.
     As partners, ACE*COMM and Geneva Technology will make joint trade show
 appearances, co-author white papers and share business leads. Additionally,
 the two companies will provide each other early access to new product versions
 and professional training services to assure customers seamless compatibility.
     "There is an extraordinary amount of synergy between Geneva and ACE*COMM,"
 said Dr. Tom Russotto, Chief Technology Officer of ACE*COMM. "This partnership
 makes real sense for both companies, and more importantly, for our customers.
 Not only does it provide a market-leading combination of technology,
 complementary skills and target market expertise, it allows us to deepen our
 penetration into the large-carrier market segment."
     "As the markets force carriers to differentiate, telecom providers will
 increasingly rely on back office innovations that enable the rapid deployment
 of new services," said Idar Voldnes, President of Geneva Technology Inc.
 "Together, ACE*COMM and Geneva Technology will help assure that our customers
 have the tools they need to compete and thrive."
