Alex Duncan, CEO of Openmind Networks today announced that Vodafone Egypt have deployed Traffic Control as an advanced, high-capacity and scalable SMSC to meet the needs of their growing subscriber base.
"In effect, Vodafone Egypt is building a smarter, more efficient and scalable network that will meet its future messaging demands” said Duncan. “The incredible growth witnessed in SMS means that urgent requirements for capacity can be exploited by the incumbent vendors. Openmind gave Vodafone a compelling alternative that delivers capacity increases that create a newer, richer messaging network.”
“Mobile operators need to decouple their dependency on legacy messaging vendors so that they can provide a base platform for enriched messaging and security solutions,” added Duncan. “With Traffic Control our customers have demonstrated that they can focus on building and delivering new messaging services, free from the constraints imposed by inflexible and costly legacy equipment.”
