MEXICO CITY and OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Elephant Talk Communications Corp. (NYSE MKT: ETAK) ("Elephant Talk" or "the Company"), a global provider of Software Defined Network Architecture (Software DNA™ 2.0) platforms and cyber security solutions, today announced that it has successfully migrated the first 600,000+ Grupo Iusacell ("Iusacell") pre-paid subscribers in Mexico onto its dedicated platform.

Steven van der Velden, Chairman and CEO of Elephant Talk stated, "The migration of the first lusacell subscribers in Mexico is an important milestone for Elephant Talk and will play a critical part in our expected growth for 2014. We are confident in the world class capabilities and clear value proposition that our Software DNA™ 2.0 solution can provide mobile network operators like lusacell.  Our company is excited to support the growth of Iusacell's  user base and increase its service offerings."

Adrian Steckel, CEO of Iusacell, stated, "We are pleased to have completed the first phase of our migration program. This effort will see millions of existing pre-paid customers, postpaid customers and MVNOs transitioned to the new platform over the next quarter. By the end of 2014, we expect to have over approximately 8 million customers migrated to the Elephant Talk platform."

Elephant Talk's Software DNA™ 2.0 platform incorporates virtualized software technologies and a hosted, outsourced cloud-based architecture that enables mobile network operators to manage all of their core network and service management functions in a single software solution. It is the only single software platform designed to support a capacity of over 10 million mobile subscribers and seamlessly provisioning of 2G/2,5G/3G/4G (LTE) and CDMA standards. The completion of the initial rollout of the Company's  newly enhanced Software Defined Networking (SDN) platform known as Software DNA™ 2.0, was announced yesterday by Elephant Talk, at the start of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (Spain). With Elephant Talk, mobile carriers can significantly reduce capital investments in new hardware, eliminate the use of legacy software and hardware as well as reduce network operating and maintenance costs while benefiting from greatly improved flexibility and the ability to quickly deploy new services. Elephant Talk's Software DNA™ 2.0 platform is currently providing services to MNOs in four different countries.
