Nigerias M-Tel Selects Sentori, Intec and GPNW

Thursday 30 October 2003 19:06 CET | News

Nigeria Mobile Telecommunications (M-Tel), has selected Sentori, Intec Telecom Systems, and GPNW Consulting (UK) to provide mission-critical interconnect, billing and customer care solutions for M-Tels next-generation national GSM mobile network.

With Sentori acting as the prime contractor these vendors have teamed up to provide M-Tel with a state-of-the-art solution that will help to increase M-Tels revenue, lower administrative costs, and enhance the quality of M-Tels customer support. With the largest population in Africa and one of the lowest telephone service penetrations in the world, Nigeria offers massive growth potential for the GSM industry. Nigerias mobile market is developing faster than any other sector with the rise of wireless communications and the governments decision to award mobile licenses to several international carriers. As a result, Nigerias mobile subscriber base is expected to reach 30 million out of a population of 120 million by 2006, compared to only 2 million today. As M-Tel responds to this explosive demand for mobile services, Sentori and Intec will support its increasingly complex retail billing and intercarrier billing environments. Sentori will supply M-Tel with its Sentori Billing and Customer Care system, an award-winning multi-service customer management software solution. Intec will supply M-Tel with its InterconnecT billing solution - the market leading software application that enables telecommunications companies to charge other carriers for using its network to carry traffic and support services.
