Bercut Limited, a Russian supplier of IT products for value added services (VAS) infrastructure to fixed and mobile operators, is supplying its i-Cell solution to Vodacom Tanzania which is offering the VAS under the banner Vodazone. Available to all of the cellco’s five million subscribers, Bercut’s i-Cell product is designed to achieve two goals: network load balancing and increasing ARPU. The service is controlled by the Cell Broadcast service, which is a part of the vendor’s i-Cell solution. ‘We are completely satisfied with capabilities of i-Cell and the service provided by Bercut. The company’s specialists managed to meet a tight schedule, which enabled us to launch the Vodazone service within the time required,’ Erasto Haule, Head of Department Network Quality of Vodacom Tanzania said. ‘In the near future, we plan to use all additional capabilities of i-Cell for increasing penetration of VAS and ensuring a growth of ARPU via VAS promotion,’ he added.
