Celtel (V-Mobile) GSM Network Expansion

The project included GSM 900/1800 expansion into the South and South east of the country. Celtel (formerly V-mobile) is a mobile telecommunications company that offers services in more African countries than any other and has in excess of 15 million subscribers. The company is one of the best-known brands in Africa with mobile licenses covering more than 400 million people.

The company's GSM network in Nigeria went live in August 2001 and is a GSM 900/1800 system. The network currently covers over 600 towns and 8,000 communities across the six geopolitical zones of the country. Scholl-Heuter's goal was to identify the potential obstacles and plot ways to overcome them.

In November 2006 the South African open source software (OSS) development company, Int Dev Internet Technologies (Int Dev), signed an agreement with VAS Consulting Company Nigeria to install an enterprise solution using the SugarCRM OSS platform, for Celtel Nigeria.

The project encompasses calendaring, event-scheduling, on-demand reporting, Office and Outlook synchronization, and SMS notification integration.
