 WAKEFIELD, Mass., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Technology (NASDAQ: BSTN) today announced that it has received an order to supply cellular voice messaging systems to NEC do Brazil for installation with NEC's cellular systems at Telecomunicacoes de Sao Paulo S.A. (TELESP), Brazil's largest telephone company and the cellular provider for Sao Paulo. At the same time Boston Technology announced that it has signed a master distributor contract with Computel Computadores e Telecomunicacoes S.A. to serve as Boston Technology's distributor throughout Brazil.
 Boston Technology will ship five CO ACCESS(tm) 200 systems to Sao Paulo to be integrated with TELESP's new cellular network. The systems will be used to provide enhanced services, such as call answering, voice messaging, and fax mailboxes to 60,000 cellular subscribers throughout the metropolitan Sao Paulo area.

A spokesperson from Computel Brazil explained, "We expect to see a very high rate of subscription to cellular service in the Sao Paulo area because of the high demand experienced for new land line service. Services are expected to be expanded this year and, with the new cellular service, Sao Paulo residents and businesses will be able to have high quality phone service, as well as enhanced services, immediately."
 Paul DeLacey, general manager of Boston Technology International, commented, "We are very enthusiastic about working with Computel and TELESP to provide enhanced services in Sao Paulo. With more than 20 million people, it is the largest city in South America and the largest untapped cellular market in the world. We feel that this account is an excellent entree for Boston Technology into the Latin American markets."
 He added that, "Due to the expected high rates of subscription to cellular services, we are shipping our expandable CO ACCESS 200 systems to TELESP so that they can upgrade seamlessly to larger capacity as their customer demands increase. The systems will be connected to NEC cellular switches. We have worked very closely over the past several months with both Computel and NEC do Brazil to achieve this success and we are looking forward to many more such successes through our partnerships with Computel and NEC."
