Acision Prepares Telenor Pakistan for Exponential Messaging Growth


ISLAMABAD,  Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


- Acision Increases Capacity by 250% to Cater for Boom in SMS Traffic


    Acision, the world's leading messaging company, announced

today that Telenor Pakistan, one of the leading mobile operators in

Pakistan, has again selected the Acision SMSC to expand its messaging

capacity to cater for continued SMS traffic growth. With a capacity

expansion of up to 250%, Telenor Pakistan is well prepared to meet

the messaging requirements of its fast growing subscriber base.


    The Pakistan mobile market is experiencing rapid subscriber

growth with thousands of customers signing up every month. The growth

in subscriber rate has consequently led way to triple digit growth in

messaging traffic over the last year. The Acision SMSC offers Telenor

Pakistan a complete solution to support the operator's entire SMS

business managing enormous messaging volumes with undisputed quality

of service. In 2007, Telenor Pakistan together with Acision conducted

a messaging capacity upgrade to cater for 12 million subscribers. As

of December 2008, the subscriber base has reached 19.3 million, so an

increase in messaging infrastructure capacity to meet anticipated

messaging volumes was required.


    Chief Technical Officer, Telenor Pakistan, Peter Anthony

Dindial commented, "For us, it is crucial to tap into the potential

of the Pakistan mobile market. To do this, we must meet the growing

needs of our subscribers and offer them reliable and high quality

services that they demand and deserve. Telenor and Acision have a

relationship that spans the globe across all Telenor entities. Based

on our past experience with the Acision SMSC, we recognise that

having a reliable system is absolutely critical in high volume

traffic scenarios, enabling Telenor Pakistan to offer

subscriber services without an incident or any downtime."


    Boudewijn Pesch, Managing Director for Acision in Asia

Pacific, added: "SMS continues to be the critical source of a mobile

operator's mobile data revenues. For Telenor Pakistan, growing and

protecting this revenue base is a fundamental business objective.

Again, Telenor Pakistan has selected Acision to deliver a highly

stable, high performance messaging solution. With a strong track

record in global deployments, the Acision SMSC continues to be the

top choice for operators with high volume data services."
