Leading IT solutions provider International Turnkey Systems (ITS) has signed an agreement with CELL ONE, a leading GSM operator in Windhoek Namibia. The deal comes in line with ITS' strategic partnership with Orascom Telecom, a major player in the global telecommunications market and the mother company of CELL ONE.
ITS shall provide a package of services and products of core billing, correlated infrastructure, hardware and software, and multi-dimensional smart reporting. ITS' solution to CELL ONE is based on SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture); a design pattern which helps business owners respond more quickly and cost-effectively to changing market conditions. With SOA, business changes can easily be made at the solution interface level rather than the solution infrastructure, making it easier to quickly implement changes without requiring radical system modifications.

The reduction of operational expenditures and the attraction of new customers while retaining existing ones at the most cost effective investment are two key priorities of Telecom operators today and our tailored products and services made ITS the partner of choice for major telecom operators in the region" said Khalid Faraj Al-Said, Managing Director and General Manager, ITS.
