SGS and Global Voice Group transfer the Telecommunications Traffic Monitoring System to Tanzania

(Ecofin Agency) - Tanzania is officially in charge of the Telecommunications Traffic Monitoring System (TTMS). Developed by a consortium of Société Générale de sécurité (SGS) and Global Voice Group (GVG) in the framework of a Build–operate–transfer (BOT) agreement, the system that has been operational since 2013 was transferred to the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) on January 22, 2019, during a ceremony presided by the country’s president John Magufuli.

The system not only helps checks the number of calls made and the billing of incoming international calls but, it also helps detect and stop international communication frauds as well as supervise mobile money platforms.

According to James Kilaba (photo), director general of TCRA, thanks to the TTMS, Tanzania was able to collect Tsh 93 billion ( 40,234,825 US dollars) in the past five years.  The monthly volume of Mobile Money transactions also rose from Tsh 8.5 trillion (367,737,649 US dollars) in 2007 to Tsh 11.6 trillion (501,853,733 US dollars) in 2018.

The director added that frauds on international calls that dropped to 65% thanks to the regulator’s efforts have decreased to 10% within the last five years thanks to the TTMS.
