TELCOS COMPLETE INSTALLATION OF KELNI GVG SERVERS
The Ministry of Communications says it has completed the installation of servers at the various data centres of mobile networks for the implementation of the revenue monitoring Common Platform.
The Minister of Communications, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, a couple of weeks ago, had given the mobile network operators (MNOs) a final deadline of Monday, June 11, 2018, to connect to the $179-million contract awarded to Kelni GVG, a private company, to monitor call traffic.
But a statement issued and signed by the Mrs Owusu-Ekuful on Monday said the MNOs have complied with the directive and what is to follow is testing and transmission, which are at various stages of completion.
“… Following a meeting with MNO Chief Executive Officers, I am happy to announce that they are all cooperating with the NCA, Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and their contractors to implement the CMP,” the statement said.
The statement noted, however, that some changes have been made to the original technical specifications of the servers to address the privacy concerns raised by the mobile network operators.
