Afriwave Ghana capable of implementing full ICH classes of service in Ghana
By Nana Appiah Acquaye, Accra, Ghana
Following a successful installation and deployment of the core network and transmission infrastructure and teaming up with SIGOS (formerly Meucci), experts in real time monitoring of SIM Box fraud to deal with the issue of SIM Boxing in the country, Afriwave Ghana says it is capable of implementing the full Interconnect Clearinghouse (ICH) classes of service in Ghana and that the entire country and sub-region would soon reap the benefits of the ICH.
Licensed by the National Communications Authority (NCA) to provide the Interconnect Clearinghouse (ICH) services in Ghana, Afriwave possesses the technical, financial, and operational skills set for a seamless ICH service delivery to the industry.
The Head of Corporate Communications at Afriwave Telecom Ghana Limited, Donald Gwira in an interview with journalists in Accra urged stakeholders in the telecoms ecosystem and all well-meaning Ghanaians to join hands and work towards to ensure a successful Interconnect Clearinghouse (ICH) service delivery.
Parliament recently passed Electronic Communications (Amendment) Bill, 2016 into law, giving the implementation of the ICH a legal backing. The law however reduced the scope of the ICH by removing the originally intended exclusivity and also of the right to offer tax revenue assurance services to the state.
But a grateful Donald Gwira said "thank God for the eventual passage of the Bill despite the challenges it had to go through."
Mr.Gwira indicated that the numerous benefits that will accrue to the industry from a successful implementation of ICH services in Ghana far outweighed the challenges. He expressed joy that the process has gone through a full review culminating in the issuance of the ICH license by the NCA and now the passage of the Bill by Parliament to back it up.
"Now that ICH is the law of the land, it is time everyone moved on and focused on efficient service delivery," he said.
