Dubai, UAE – November 24th, 2008 – mCarbon and MCTEL announced today that they have entered into a strategic partnership to provide Advanced Call & Data Management (ADCM) Solutions to mobile operators in Near East Asia, Middle East and North Africa.


In an environment of ever decreasing voice and data prices, competitive forces in the market are forcing mobile operators to review their business models and provide differentiated service offerings which at the same time offset their declining margins. Where no new ‘killer services’ are on the horizon, operators have gone back to their traditional cash generating services, voice and messaging, and are analyzing ways to inject additional value on top of these traditional services to lift the dipping curve of declining margins.
