Roshan is partnering with MATRIXX Software to change the way its six million customers use telecom services by bringing real-time digital experience and personalization for all voice, data and digital services.

MATRIXX has a global customer footprint across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America. Roshan selected MATRIXX because it is the only vendor providing a single platform that both protects and grows revenues from traditional prepaid voice and messaging services while also delivering the tools to attract smartphone users and increase data usage. As the digital revolution sweeps through emerging markets, mobile operators need cost effective, scalable solutions that improve their existing operating portfolios while building for the future of smartphones and digital service revenues.

In a signing ceremony in Dubai, UAE, Roshan’s CEO Karim Khoja said, “Since our founding, Roshan has always embraced implementing new technologies and applications to provide our customers with the best experience. This partnership with MATRIXX Software showcases that the digital experience is quickly becoming a reality in Afghanistan.”

“Afghanistan’s communications infrastructure has come a long way in 16 years and Roshan has played and continues to play a significant role in making that happen,” said Dave Labuda, MATRIXX Software co-founder and CEO. “It is only natural that Roshan is leading the way into a new era of digital connectivity. We are proud to be a part of helping Roshan deliver the future of customer experience and service innovation that Roshan aims to bring to their customers.”

Built entirely from scratch, the multi-patented, award-winning MATRIXX Digital Commerce Platform enables a digital-first reinvention of Telco BSS. It brings together traditionally separate network and IT functions into a single platform including product design and lifecycle management, customer engagement, service delivery and monetization. Built for digital, the MATRIXX Digital Commerce Platform offers operators the agility and seamless scalability required to compete and win now and in the future.

Roshan has always been a pioneer in leveraging its robust network infrastructure and technology to support the government and the people of Afghanistan. These include the launch of Afghanistan’s first ever mobile money service, M-Paisa, which has contributed to increasing financial transparency and financial inclusion. Roshan also launched the first Telemedicine program in Afghanistan in 2007, linking hospitals in Badakhshan, Bamiyan and Kandahar provinces to the French Medical Institute for Children and Mothers (FMIC) in Kabul, one of the most modern hospitals in the country. Since its launch, almost 30,000 patients across Afghanistan have received treatment through this telemedicine link.

Laser System Partnership Sets Sights on Ending Toll Road Delays17.10.2019 22:00:00 CESTPress release

A new technology partnership is set to transform road tolling for both providers and motorists alike by utilizing the latest advances in lidar technology and data analytics. Cepton Technologies, Inc. has collaborated with industrial perception and machine learning experts, MechaSpin, to develop a lidar-based solution that produces detailed 3D classification of vehicles in real time for automated tolling applications. This next-generation solution combines Cepton’s Sora-P60 with MechaSpin’s MSx software to enable immediate profiling and classification of vehicles at highway speeds in a wide range of weather and lighting conditions. Traditional tolling systems often depend on physical infrastructure to reduce vehicle speed, or tollbooths to allow for manual processing, which can cause congestion and frustration amongst motorists. Advanced systems that allow for faster tolling, however, are often subject to abuses such as leakage, while road-based sensors often fail due to wear and tear.
