Interconnect billing solutions provider i-conX Solutions has announced it has successfully deployed its i-conX system to Sudanese fixed line operator Canar Telecommunication Company (Canartel) to rate and bill the operator’s domestic and international interconnect traffic.
Canartel’s CEO, Ali Bin Jarsh, commented: ‘As the Sudanese market becomes more competitive, so the implementation of a modern interconnect billing solution is recognised as a key requirement for Canartel to maintain its leading status. The i-conX solution has been thoroughly tested, and found to provide a capable platform to support the continued growth of our wholesale business.’
Canartel became Sudan's first alternative fixed line operator, after it won the country’s second national operator licence in November 2004 with a bid of EUR45 million (USD64 million). It launched in November 2005 offering voice, data and broadband internet services based on a 3,500km fibre-optic next generation network (NGN), VSAT and wireless in the local loop (WiLL) CDMA technology, with a strong focus on business clients.
