Mobitel selects VocalTec for next-generation-network roll-out

Also supports Mobitel's deployment of data, IP core and billing infrastructures

By CBR Staff Writer

Nigerian fixed line and wireless telephone operator Mobitel has selected Israel-based VocalTec Communications for its next-generation-network roll-out. VocalTec will be the prime contractor for the project, and will also support Mobitel’s deployment of data, IP core and billing infrastructures.

The current order, which amounts to $5m, includes the first phase of deployment in two major cities, as part of a larger network development plan.

At the core of the deployment is VocalTec’s Essentra suite of softswitch products, which offer a range of IP-based subscriber features over Mobitel’s WiMAX access infrastructure. This also enables additional applications, including IP-to-PSTN interworking and IP-to-IP interconnection services.

Johnson Salako, executive chairman at Mobitel, said: We are confident in VocalTec’s vast VoIP experience and expertise in the deployment and management of large scale VoIP networks. Their many years of experience with this technology and their commitment to the VoIP industry made them the natural choice as the provider of our core network infrastructure. We look forward to a long lasting partnership with VocalTec as we work towards becoming a significant provider of voice, data and other value added services in Nigeria.
