Tango Telecom, a leading provider of real-time convergent charging and intelligent messaging software, has announced its planned expansion into the Middle East market.
Speaking today at a Trade Mission to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates , led by the Irish Premier, An Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern T.D., Rory Oâ€™Toole, Tango Telecomâ€™s Business Development Manager for the Middle East , announced Tango Telecomâ€™s plans to extend their operations in the region. This announcement follows the recent contract win and successful implementation of Tango Telecomâ€™s converged charging solutions for SMS and GPRS with a mobile operator in the region.
Oâ€™Toole also announced the regional launch of Tango Telecomâ€™s class leading short message anti-spam platform, Tango Anti-Spam SFG which provides comprehensive anti-threat capabilities enabling operators to protect their network and subscribers from fraud, spam and malware threats. This anti-spam solution defends against a wide variety of abuses, including denial-of-service attacks, flooding and offensive content offering operators a solution to protect their subscribers from inappropriate, harmful and unsolicited content.
â€œWhile SMS Spam has yet to reach the levels of email Spam, it is a serious and rapidly growing problem. Spam detracts from the benefits of SMS as a legitimate communication and revenue generating tool for operators and can lead to subscriber churn and loss of revenue, with some researchers quoting a loss in excess of $2billion per annum. A comprehensive solution such as Tango SMS Anti-Spam enables operators to combat these threats effectively regardless of where they originate â€“ the home or foreign network. We are currently in talks with a number of operators in the region regarding their SMS Spam issues.â€ Oâ€™Toole explains.
Tango Telecom will be exhibiting at Stand C56 Hall1 at the 3GSM World Congress 2007 February 12-15, 2007 in Barcelona , Spain and will be to provide more information about their anti-spam solution, this recent contract win and other successful implementations.
