Ascade, the global market-leader in advanced Routing, Billing and Quality solutions for the Interconnect market, has announced that its flagship routing solution has been successfully implemented at Telecom Egypt.
Telecom Egypt, the state-owned incumbent fixed line operator in Egypt, offers retail and wholesale voice and data services and is widely recognized as one of the most advanced operators in Africa and the Middle East. Telecom Egypt also owns a 45% stake in mobile operator Vodafone Egypt.
As part of the project AscadeRoute, AscadeActivate, and AscadeAssure have been implemented and integrated with a variety of third party solutions. This allows Telecom Egypt to automate and optimize the international voice traffic management including the analysis of the supplier Carrier offers, optimal routing selection and implementation of the routing choices in the network (Network Provisioning).
