A delegation from the National Integrated Ticketing Company, led by the President of the Executive Committee, Mário Nsingi, held a working meeting with the PCE of UNITEL, Miguel Geraldes, in search of a partnership for technological support to the National Integrated Ticketing System. The objective is for the telephony operator to support the technological management of the new company in the transport sector.
The meeting, which took place last Tuesday in Luanda, is part of a range of actions considered strategic for the operationalization of transport tickets for the development of the model and business plan of the National Integrated Ticketing Company.
The head of ENBI presented the SNBI’s communication architecture, as well as the main processes that characterize ENBI’s business, which is based on the 4G network of the operator UNITEL.
In turn, the PCE of UNITEL, Miguel Geraldes, guaranteed that the mobile phone company is interested in working and supporting the National Integrated Ticketing Company, being “in this challenge for the good of the country and the populations that use public transport services, since there are technical capacities installed to respond to the needs of ENBI”.
“ENBI intends for the operator UNITEL to act not only as a strategic communications provider but also as a strategic commercial partner through the marketing of its products, using its vast network of agents spread throughout the country, which are estimated at around 40 thousand” said the PCE of mobile telephony operator UNITEL, Miguel Geraldes.
The National Integrated Ticketing System has been implemented in more than 800 buses of the concession operators in the provinces of Luanda and Huíla, for more than 15 months, supported by a public 4G network of the operator UNITEL, which allows the communication of all collected information on buses to the ENBI Datacenter when they arrive at their bases at the end of the operating day.
With the partnership, ENBI intends for UNITEL to establish a 4/5G Private Communications Network that allows the transmission of this information in real time, allowing the purchase of credits via computer applications, with greater security and convenience for passengers, balance consultation, obtain useful information about products, as well as the possibility for each passenger to follow the location and position of the bus in real time.
