PARIS, February 10, 2011 - ActivNetworks, the expert in acceleration and optimization of data
traffic, today announces that its BoostEdge Telecom Edition platform has been
deployed at Bouygues Telecom with IBM as the system integrator.

Surfing the Internet via Bouygues Telecom's 3G network now benefits from
BoostEdge patented acceleration technologies. Processed traffic is widely
reduced, allowing Bouygues Telecom subscribers to access the Internet and
corporate web applications with a new comfort when on the move.

ActivNetworks won Bouygues Telecom's tender for acceleration and
compression of Internet connections on its 3G network. BoostEdge Telecom
Edition was chosen because it clearly outperformed the other solutions being

Cyrille Guetin, Bouygues Telecom's Technical Director, explains: "The
success of Mobile Internet and new terminals (smartphones, tablets) requires
that we look forward in order to guarantee the best service to our customers.
This is why Bouygues Telecom chose ActivNetworks which offers traffic
acceleration technologies that are both comprehensive and easy to deploy."

Serge Cuesta, President, ActivNetworks, says: "Accessing the Internet on
the move is now widely popular and this is creating huge challenges for
telecom operators. With Bouygues Telecom, ActivNetworks showcases its
expertise by deploying a solution that is both effective and durable but also
very simple to deploy and maintain. Investments required to cope with traffic
growth can now be reduced without adding complexity to existing networks or
modifying users' terminals."

BoostEdge Telecom Edition is designed to improve 3G networks performances
by widely reducing processed traffic. This means Web pages are displayed more
quickly and file downloads are greatly accelerated. ActivNetworks' patented
"Plug'n-Boost" technology allows for rapid deployments without modification
to existing infrastructures or service interruptions.

ActivNetworks is now identified as a major player in the market for
traffic acceleration and optimization technologies for telecom operators.
