Telkom awards subscriber management deal to Alca-Lu

19 May 2008

Telkom Kenya has contracted Alcatel-Lucent to supply a subscriber data management (SDM) system for its GSM wireless network which is currently being deployed. The value of the three-year deal has not been announced. State-backed Telkom was granted a cellular licence in Kenya after handing back its stake in Safaricom to the government. It will compete against incumbent operators Safaricom and Celtel plus soon-to-be-launched Econet Wireless.
