Menatel Egypt - a new WiFi voice service

Menatel Egypt - a new WiFi voice service

A first pilot, carried out thanks to Sofrecom’s assistance, demonstrated the technical feasibility of such aproject. All calls made from WiFi telephones and towards other voice equipment (analog, IP and WiFi phone…) proved to be of promising quality.

The Sofrecom intervention concerned the assistance to new added value services supply and the optimization of payphone costs and incomes, which were possible thanks to IP technologies.

This pilot project comes up within the development scope of Menatel, the main payphone operator in Egypt. Encouraged by these results, Menagel wished to continue this project in order to test more complex configurations and provide a quality level identical to that of traditional network calls.

This project allowed Sofrecom to spread its activities and consolidate its presence throughout Egypt.
