Sudanese operator augments VAS offering

Subscribers of Zain Sudan will soon have access to an expanded suite of VAS solutions. Provided by Jinny Software, the portfolio includes upgrades for Zain’s MMSC, ringback tone server, SMSC, message router, SMSC accelerator and WAP Gateway, along with solution management tools.

Zain Sudan (formerly Mobitel) was the first GSM operator in Sudan, launching its mobile offering in February 1997. Today it serves the largest base of mobile customers in the country with more than 10 million active customers.

Because the software resides on a standard platform, increasing capacity and adding new applications is simple and fast. Also, Jinny Software is equipped to make the transition into IP networks, as Zain Sudan will be doing with its ringback tone service.

“We are pleased to support Zain Sudan as they build on their success in marketing innovative new services for their customers,” says Richard Choi, Jinny Chief Commercial Officer. “This deal underscores our commitment to mobile network operators in emerging markets.”
