Afghan Wireless Communications Company (AWCC) has selected Cataleya to provide its Orchid One session and application management solution across its network. The upgrade, which will initially be deployed in the capital before being extended to other cities, will be used to support the cellco’s migration to an all-IP infrastructure and AWCC also plans to use the solution to improve quality of service (QoS), interworking and transcoding.
Commenting on the development, AWCC CTO Mike Hoban noted: ‘No matter what market you operate in, voice quality is critical. We selected Orchid One because it is able to support our vision for high quality mobile services in Afghanistan. We are the leader in mobile in this country and Orchid One will enable us to deliver even more benefits to mobile subscribers, businesses and communities across Afghanistan.’
In a press release, Cataleya explained that its Orchid One solution was designed to ‘enable the delivery of IP communications services and high performance applications,’ adding that it ‘offers service providers full end-to-end QoS and quality of experience (QoE) with visibility from the transport to application layers.’
