Al Mazaya Telecoms has picked Verisign’s PrePayIn solutions to support its prepay service in Iraq. The new service, which is scheduled to go live in the first half of 2007, is the first installation of PrePayIn in the Middle East. “VeriSign PrePayIn allows us to launch feature-rich prepay wireless service to Iraq and provide a superior customer experience to millions of users,” said Alaa Sami Kazim, Chairman at Al Mazaya Telecoms. “In addition to enabling us to compete in the growing Iraqi prepay market by offering next-generation services, this solution allows us to accurately bill customers in real-time.” The real-time billing system will enable Al Mazaya to provide its customers with detailed, up-to-date usage information and account status. The service also allows carriers to bill for new services, including next-generation content and data services such as streaming video, file transfer and multimedia message services (MMS), according to VeriSign. “For service providers to expand into new markets and grow their subscriber base, they must be able to offer accurate billing services combined with content that customers demand,” added Kevin Bresnahan, director for VeriSign prepaid product management. “Our solution allows Al Mazaya Telecoms to expand into its target market of Iraq and offer more services and plans that can be rated, billed and delivered — anywhere, anytime.” VeriSign’s prepay services currently support more than 30 million subscribers worldwide. Al Mazaya, an Iraq-based company, holds a licence from ITPC of Iraq to operate CDMA networks in Iraq. The company is a joint venture between Al Manara Overseas from Dubai and Kuwait’s Al-Mal Investment Group.
