-- Acquisition By Axcel Industri Investor leaves NetTest debt-free

19 February 2003 -- NetTest will be debuting new network-wide monitoring and testing products for wireless services at the 3GSM World Congress in Cannes, France, 18-21 February.

The additions follow NetTest's acquisition by Danish equity fund Axcel in December 2002 and the company's revised focus on two core businesses: testing instruments and monitoring systems. The deal leaves NetTest debt-free, with a new management team, which the company claims further strengthens its position in the wireless network testing and service optimisation markets.

Allan Vestergaard, Net Test's President and CEO, said, "Our Systems business unit is focusing on two main wireless product lines: network-wide monitoring systems and hot spot expert analysis tools. This focus has already brought us a greater share of the global market for wireless network testing solutions."

The company will introduce a series of new solutions at 3GSM, including two important middleware enhancements to its MasterQuest solution: MasterQuest Mobile Location System; and MasterQuest Key Performance Indicators which helps mobile operators more easily analyse data generated by the network, enabling quick identification of problems.

Rounding out NetTest's complete presentation of wireless network testing solutions at 3GSM World Congress are the latest versions of:
- Compass GSMR - a tool enabling European rail operators to efficiently plan for network upgrades and improve GSM network performance.
- Compass GPRS - with MMS analysis allowing wireless operators to analyse MMS data, resulting in faster revenue generation.
- Impact MAP - a hot spot expert analysis tool with 360-degree view of the network, now offering easy drill down from network overview to individual calls with multi-level decode, increasing troubleshooting capabilities and documentation of network quality.
- InterQuest Probe - speeds network troubleshooting for users maintaining, operating and optimising today's demanding mobile networks.
