Ireland’s Tango Telecom, a leading provider of advanced messaging, real-time charging and policy control solutions, has announced that it has been awarded contracts to deploy iAX SMS, its advanced messaging technology, in Zain Ghana and Zain Madagascar’s mobile networks. The high-capacity, next generation messaging platform, enables pre-paid and post-paid charging, storage and delivery of A2P, P2P and P2A messages and enables advanced revenue generating messaging services from a single platform.

By deploying iAX SMS, we can rapidly and confidently expand our SMS delivery capabilities and data revenue capture. From a single platform, Zain can quickly rollout the Tango Telecom product suite to launch both basic and advanced services, attracting and retaining valued customers. At the same time, we can ensure the highest quality user experience as we acquire new subscribers. With Tango Telecom on board, Zain can ensure this strategy is successfully executed.’
