COTE D’IVOIRE’S ORANGE BUYS INTEC BILLING SYSTEM
Ivorian mobile operator Orange has gone live with Intec’s InterconnecT solution. The successful implementation of Intec’s intercarrier billing system was made possible by an extended global partnership agreement with France Telecom.
The partnership deal enables the leading French operator to create a centralized InterconnecT bureau service in France which can support the intercarrier billing requirements for any of its Orange subsidiaries around the world. The latest country to become part of this complex settlement initiative is Cote d’Ivoire. Over one million call detail records (CDRs) are sent from Orange’s operations in the West African country to France Telecom’s central bureau in France, which relies on local service hardware to support Intec’s InterconnecT solution. The CDR information received from Orange’s Cote d’Ivoire operation is gathered by the French central bureau and then used to produce accurate intercarrier billing settlements for the African affiliate.
