Globacom Selects Acision to Provide Value Added Services in Ghana


CAPE TOWN, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire-Asianet/ --


    Acision, the world's leading messaging company, announces today that Globacom, the fastest

growing telecom operator in Africa, has selected Acision to provide Value Added Services (VAS) for

Globacom's new mobile network in Ghana.


    Currently one of the two biggest operators in Nigeria with over 20 million subscribers, Globacom is

actively growing in West Africa through the recent roll out of its network in Benin Republic and the

acquisition of a new operating license in Ghana. Glo Mobile Ghana is targeting market leadership with

an array of unique propositions when it launches in 2009.


    The deployment of products including the Acision SMSC, Acision MMSC, Acision Voicemail, Acision

High Speed Proxy for mobile data services and Acision Prepaid System, will allow Glo Mobile Ghana to

provide compelling value-added services in an increasingly competitive market.


    Glo Mobile Ghana said Acision is operating a high performance system with the capacity and flexibility

to deliver new and differentiated communication services. Acision whose local partner is African based

TechFuture Limited, has a wide range of experience that is ideal to meet Glo's pre-requisites.


    "Acision is the obvious choice to partner with to replicate the success we have already achieved in

Nigeria as we expand into Ghana," said Mohamed Jameel, Globacom's Group Chief Operating Officer.

"Acision's innovation matches our vision of building the biggest and the best telecommunications

network in Africa. We have established a pedigree for providing unparalleled mobile services in any

market where we operate. This agreement between us and Acision is the start of a partnership that will

enable Glo Mobile Ghana to offer a differentiated service in the highly competitive Ghanaian market."


    "With over 20 years experience in delivering innovative solutions, Acision is the ideal partner for

network start-ups and established operators alike", said Richard Lowe, General Manager, Europe and

Africa at Acision. "Working with Glo Mobile Ghana is extremely exciting for us as it further demonstrates

Acision's commitment to enabling operators in emerging markets to deliver advanced messaging

services more traditionally associated with mature markets. Globacom has ambitious expansion plans

and we are pleased to be part of the process in partnering with them to achieve their goal."
