Uganda Telecom selects Jinny Software’s advanced Filtering Solution

Jinny Software, a leading global supplier of messaging, call completion and mobile advertising solutions to wireless carriers, today announces a deal with Uganda Telecom to upgrade its Jinny messaging platforms and supply a Filtering solution to protect its subscribers from unsolicited spam messages.

The Jinny Filtering Solution is built around a sophisticated and highly customisable rules-based engine and provides operators with a reliable development environment to implement SMS traffic screening for anti-spam, anti-flood, anti-fraud and anti-virus on the same platform.

“The issue of security is important to us, and to our customers,” says Stanley Henning, Uganda Telecom Chief Operations Officer.  “We chose Jinny for our Filtering solution because it offers network-level protection from malware, viruses, fraudulent traffic, and subscriber-level control over unwarranted traffic.”

All Jinny products are based on the scalable Jinny Standard Platform, making the implementation of the Filtering Solution relatively simple and fast.

“We are delighted to announce the upcoming implementation of our upgraded messaging platforms and filtering solution for Uganda Telecom,” says Richard Choi, Jinny Chief Commercial Officer. “The latest release of Jinny’s core messaging solutions is designed to support mobile networks that require flexibility and rapid time-to-market for new services, and the Jinny Filtering Solution protects both the operator’s business and the subscriber’s experience. This deal reinforces our position as a market-leading vendor of innovative mobile solutions in Africa.”
