Orascom upgrades with NSN

11 Nov 2008

Orascom Telecom Algeria has contracted Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) to provide its Home Location Register (HLR) subscriber data management solution, allowing Orascom to develop a single database for subscriber information. Orascom says the new system will enable it to move towards smart, subscriber-centric operations, which will reduce time-to-market for service deployment. The solution, which is due to go live early next year, is also expected to generate significant capital and operating expenditure savings. Orascom Telecom Algeria had 14.2 million subscribers and just under half of Algeria’s total mobile market at the end of June, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database.
