Rennes, France, October 14, 2013, 7:05 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Astellia, leading provider of network and subscriber intelligence for mobile operators, and Econet Wireless, Zimbabwe's number one mobile operator, announced today that they have jointly been shortlisted for the AfricaCom Awards 2013 in the category of ‘Best cost efficiency solution for Africa.'
Erratic energy supply is high on Econet Wireless' agenda since it is hindering it from delivering and guaranteeing reliable voice and broadband services to its subscribers. Econet Wireless found in Astellia a partner to help it calculate the impact of power outages and network congestion on its operational efficiency which allows them to prioritize and optimize CAPEX / OPEX investments to offer a better quality of experience to customers and increase revenues.
“The results from the revenue assurance tool were successfully used to prioritize CAPEX investments on strategic high traffic sites guaranteeing a fast and substantial ROI. Furthermore, we will be using revenue assurance data to justify future CAPEX investments to ensure a short payback period and efficient use of resources.” says Kezito Makuni, Technical Director at Econet Wireless Zimbabwe.
“This nomination is a proof of recognition of our network and service infrastructure robustness as well as an acknowledgement of our relentless pursuit of delivering the best possible experience to our customers.” added Kezito Makuni.
“We are very honored by this nomination. The independent endorsement of Astellia's expertise by an international jury of experts is a seal of quality. It is a real motivator to continue to provide African mobile operators with cost efficient solutions.” says Jean-Philippe Larvol, Managing Director Africa at Astellia.
