Dublin telecoms tech firm wins deal in Sudan

13 Feb 2012

Dublin-based telecoms technology company i-conX Solutions has been chosen to deploy its routing optimisation technology by Sudanese telecoms company Canar.

Canar, which was already an existing customer of the i-conX Interconnect Billing solution since 2007, chose i-conX Routing Optimisation Core along with two additional modules for managing quality of service, and for real-time dashboard reporting on the network.

The new system provides Canar with an integrated billing and routing optimisation solution, based around a single core database architecture with fully harmonised reference data management.

“As the Sudanese telecom market is becoming increasingly competitive, the implementation of the i-conX routing optimisation solution is considered as an important step for Canar to maintain its leading status,” Canar’s CEO Ali Ahmed Yarouf said.

“The i-conX solution will support the growth of Canar international traffic with enhanced quality and better management.”

Canar is a subsidiary of Etisalat Group (UAE), which owns 18 telecom operators around the world.
