ICT product and services provider Powerlan (ASX:PWR) has secured a deal to deploy its Infrastructure Management solution for Vodafone Egypt.
Powerlan's telecom solution provider subsidiary Clarity will provide the support system to Vodafone, which will use it to automate finance, network and service management processes.
Vodafone Egypt has forecast significant productivity gains as a result of the move, and is planning to use it to help revamp its network vendor selection processes, according to the operator's CTO, Mohamed Henna.
“Clarity's solution will ensure that we are managing our network infrastructure in the most efficient way possible,” he said.
Vodafone Egypt has around 28 million customers, he said.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
As well as network management tools, Clarity provides operational support systems (OSS) to carriers worldwide.
It holds the IP acquired from the purchase of project automation solution provider Omnix Software and Dot Communications, developer of the Viper Wholesale Service Delivery Platform, in 2008.
Powerlan's other divisions are ConverterTechnology, which develops software and services based on Microsoft Office, and IMX Software, which provides financial trading solutions.
