                    Section 26 below at least 90 days prior to the date of the
                    actual date of the termination of the Executive's
                    employment. A termination of the Executive's employment
                    under this Section 11(f) shall not by itself be a breach of

                    the Executive under this Agreement on account of any
                    compensation attributable to any subsequent employment that
                    he may obtain except as specifically provided in this
                    Section 11. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary
                    contained in any severance or change-in-control plan,
                    program, policy or arrangement of the Company in which the
                    Executive is a participant, the compensation and benefits
                    payable under this Section 11 shall be the sole and
                    exclusive compensation and benefits payable to the Executive
                    upon termination of employment.

                         (i) Nature of Payments. Any amounts due under this
                    Section 11 are in the nature of severance payments
                    considered to be reasonable by the Company and are not in
                    the nature of a penalty.

                    to divulge, disclose or make accessible such information, or
                    (iii) as to such confidential information that becomes
                    generally known to the public or trade without his violation
                    of this Section 12(a).

                         (b) The Executive covenants and agrees that during the
                    Noncompetition/ Nonsolicitation Period he shall not at any
                    time, directly or indirectly, solicit (x) any customer or

                    Competitive Activity or (y) any employee of the Company or
                    any Subsidiary for the purpose of causing such employee to
                    terminate his or her employment with the Company or such

                         (c) The Parties acknowledge that in the event of a
                    breach or threatened breach of Section 13(a) and/or Section

                    at law. Accordingly, in the event of any breach or
                    threatened breach of Section 13(a) and/or Section 13(b)
                    above and notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained
                    in Section 25 hereof, the Company shall be entitled, upon
                    legally sufficient proof thereof, to such equitable and
                    injunctive relief as may be available from any court of
                    competent jurisdiction to restrain the Executive and any
                    business, firm, partnership, individual, corporation or
                    entity participating in the breach or threatened breach from
                    the violation of the provisions of Section 13(a) and/or
                    Section 13(b) above; provided, however, that the Company
                    shall never assert in any proceeding against the Executive
                    any claims of "inevitable disclosure." Nothing in this
                    Agreement (including Section 25 hereof) shall be construed
                    as prohibiting the Company from pursuing any other remedies
                    available at law or in equity from any court of competent
                    jurisdiction for breach or threatened breach of Section
                    13(a) and/or Section 13(b) above, including the recovery of
                    damages.

               This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of
the Parties and their respective successors, heirs (in the case of the
Executive) and assigns. No rights or obligations of the Company under this
Agreement may be assigned or transferred by the Company except that such rights
or obligations may be assigned or transferred pursuant to any merger or
consolidation in which the Company is not the continuing entity, or the sale or
liquidation of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company; provided,

this Agreement, either contractually or as a matter of law.

amendment is agreed to in writing and signed by the Executive and an authorized
officer of the Company. No waiver by either Party of any breach by the other

law.

          22.  Controlling Document.
 
               If any provision of any agreement, plan, program, policy,

Agreement shall control and prevail.
 
          23.  Beneficiaries/References.
 
               The Executive shall be entitled, to the extent permitted under
any applicable law, to select and change a beneficiary or beneficiaries to
receive any compensation or benefit payable hereunder following the Executive's

his beneficiary, estate or other legal representative.

accordance with the employment rules and procedures of the American Arbitration
Association ("AAA"). The Executive and the Company shall mutually select the
arbitrator from a panel of persons with experience in arbitrating similar
disputes. If the Executive and the Company cannot agree on the selection of an
arbitrator, the AAA shall select such arbitrator. The arbitrator shall hold all
hearings within 45 days after being selected and shall issue a written decision
regarding any award within two weeks after the last hearing date. Judgment upon
the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having
jurisdiction thereof. All arbitration costs and all other costs, including but
not limited to reasonable attorneys' fees incurred by each Party, shall be borne
by the Company; provided, however, that if the arbitrator finds that the
Executive's claims are frivolous or without merit, then the arbitration costs
shall be shared equally by both Parties and all other costs shall be borne by
the Party incurring such cost.

                                                                       EXHIBIT A
 
 
                                     RELEASE
 
 
         This RELEASE ("Release") dated as of ____________________ between
Comverse Technology, Inc., a New York corporation (the "Company"), and Raz Alon
(the "Executive").
 
         WHEREAS, the Company and the Executive previously entered into an
employment agreement dated July 14, 2006 under which the Executive was employed
to serve as the Company's Chief Executive Officer (the "Employment Agreement");
and
 
         WHEREAS, the Executive's employment with the Company (has been) (will
be) terminated effective
__________________; and
 
         WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 11 of the Employment Agreement, the
Executive is entitled to certain compensation and benefits upon such
termination, contingent upon the execution of this Release;
 
         NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and mutual agreements
contained herein and in the Employment Agreement, the Company and the Executive
agree as follows:
 
         1. The Executive, on his own behalf and on behalf of his heirs, estate
and beneficiaries, does hereby release the Company, and any of its Subsidiaries
or affiliates, and each past or present officer, director, agent, employee,
shareholder, and insurer of any such entities, from any and all claims made, to
be made, or which might have been made of whatever nature, whether known or
unknown, from the beginning of time, including those that arose as a consequence
of his employment with the Company, or arising out of the severance of such
employment relationship, or arising out of any act committed or omitted during
or after the existence of such employment relationship, all up through and
including the date on which this Release is executed, including, but not limited
to, those which were, could have been or could be the subject of an
administrative or judicial proceeding filed by the Executive or on his behalf
under federal, state or local law, whether by statute, regulation, in contract
or tort, and including, but not limited to, every claim for front pay, back pay,
wages, bonus, fringe benefit, any form of discrimination (including but not
limited to, every claim of race, color, sex, religion, national origin,
disability or age discrimination), wrongful termination, emotional distress,
pain and suffering, breach of contract, compensatory or punitive damages,
interest, attorney's fees, reinstatement or reemployment. If any court rules
that such waiver of rights to file, or have filed on his behalf, any
administrative or judicial charges or complaints is ineffective, the Executive
agrees not to seek or accept any money damages or any other relief upon the
filing of any such administrative or judicial charges or complaints. The
Executive relinquishes any right to future employment with the Company and the
Company shall have the right to refuse to re-employ the Executive, in each case
without liability of the Executive or the Company. The Executive acknowledges
and agrees that even though claims and facts in addition to those now known or
believed by him to exist may subsequently be discovered, it is his intention to
 
 
 
                                       16
<PAGE>
 
 
 
fully settle and release all claims he may have against the Company and the
persons and entities described above, whether known, unknown or suspected.
 
         2. The Company and the Executive acknowledge and agree that the release
contained in Paragraph 1 does not, and shall not be construed to, release or
limit the scope of any existing obligation of the Company (i) to indemnify the
Executive for his acts as an officer or director of Company in accordance with
the bylaws of Company and the Indemnification Agreement (as defined in Section
14 of the Employment Agreement), or (ii) to the Executive and his eligible,
participating dependents or beneficiaries under any existing group welfare or
retirement plan of the Company in which the Executive and/or such dependents are
participants.
 
         3. The Executive acknowledge that he has been provided at least 21 days
to review the Release and has been advised to review it with an attorney of his
choice. In the event the Executive elects to sign this letter agreement prior to
this 21 day period, he agrees that it is a knowing and voluntary waiver of his
right to wait the full 21 days. The Executive further understand that he has
seven days after the signing hereof to revoke it by so notifying the Company in
writing, such notice to be received by _____________ within the 7 day period.
The Executive further acknowledge that he has carefully read this Release, knows
and understands its contents and its binding legal effect. The Executive
acknowledge that by signing this Release, he does so of his own free will and
act and that it is his intention that he be legally bound by its terms.
 
 
         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Release on the date
first above written.
