CONTRACTS: WHO'S SELLING WHAT TO WHO?
* ORANGE AND VOLUBILL – CAMEROON
Orange Cameroon has ordered a billing platform from VoluBill, a provider of charging solutions. The Charge it for IP solution will be installed to analyse all IP traffic to allow Orange to filter, control and charge, in real-time, any type of IP data. VoluBill's Charge it for Browsing solution for Web and WAP browsing will enable Orange to filter, control and charge, in real-time, for any WAP and HTTP traffic on its network. The Charge it on Delivery solution will then ensure the successful completion of WAP download services and enable Orange to charge customers only on successful delivery of services rather than on content requests.
* ZTE AND UNIVERSITY OF GHANA
Shenzhen-based ZTE Corporation will construct Ghana's first distance-learning network in cooperation with Cape Coast University, Ghana's principal institute of education. Completion of the first phase of the network, built with ZTE's EduStation distance-learning solution, will use 27 network nodes to provide new educational opportunities to students across Ghana. EduStation is capable of providing both remote real-time, in-class lecture sessions and after-class content for daily educational needs.
