Rakuten Mobile signs deal with STC to boost OpenRAN tech


Japanese operator Rakuten Mobile has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Saudi Telecom Company (STC) with the aim of collaborating in the field of innovation and strategic mobile technology.

Under the terms of the deal, the two companies will explore future opportunities to collaborate in various technology domains, including, fully autonomous digital platform serving telecommunication cloud network and OpenRAN deployment options for greenfield and brownfield use cases.

Both operators said they aim to accelerate the delivery of mobile network services through the use of OpenRAN mobile access technology.

“This MoU aims to expand our global partnerships and help diversify our strategic growth. We are confident this MoU will bring tangible results in terms of developing a new advance technology strategy and accelerating the early deployment of novel and sophisticated services,” said Nasser Al Nasser, Group CEO of STC.

“We are very excited about collaborating with STC and sharing our know-how of building new-generation telecommunication infrastructure,” said Mickey Mikitani, chairman and CEO of Rakuten and CEO of Rakuten Mobile. “We believe that our open architecture and advanced OpenRAN technologies will help define a new generation of operators who are ideally positioned to place advanced customer experience and differentiated profitable services at the center of their offering.”

Last month, Rakuten Mobile inked an agreement with Spanish carrier Telefonica to research and conduct lab tests and trials to support OpenRAN architectures, including the role of the AI in the RAN Networks. Under the partnership, both companies will also jointly develop proposals for optimal 5G RAN architecture and OpenRAN models.

Rakuten Mobile launched its commercial mobile operations in April this year, becoming the fourth mobile operator in Japan.  Rakuten offers its mobile services through a cloud-native, software-centric and fully virtualized mobile network.

Uganda: Thieves Use 2,000 SIM Cards to Rob Banks

Uganda: Thieves Use 2,000 SIM Cards to Rob Banks

By Andrew Bagala

Fraudsters who hacked into the mobile money system and fleeced two banks of billions of shillings used about 2,000 mobile phone numbers to execute the scam, Daily Monitor has learnt.

After hacking into the mobile money payment system, the hackers digitally instructed the banks to transfer billions of shillings to telecommunication companies who in turn remitted the money to the different SIM cards which were seeking payment across the country, just a few hours before the crime was detected at the weekend.

MTN, Airtel, Stanbic Bank and Bank of Africa temporarily suspended their mobile money services after detecting the scam and have since involved police to investigate the crime.

In a joint statement released on Monday, signed by MTN, Airtel and Stanbic Bank chiefs, they said there had been a system incident in which hackers accessed systems of a third party service provider (Pegasus Technologies) thus impacting all mobile money or wallet transactions.

“… the system incident has had no impact on any balances on both bank and mobile money accounts,” the joint statement read in part.

The CID spokesman, Mr Charles Twiine, confirmed police had commenced investigations into the hacking.

“We shall establish whether the unauthorised access caused any losses,” Assistant Superintendent of Police Twiine said yesterday, but declined to give further details on the case.

Banks and telecoms are interlinked through aggregators. Uganda has around six aggregators including Pegasus.

Aggregators facilitate a transaction from the bank to the phone such as buying airtime or paying school fees. Similarly aggregators facilitate operations such as sending money across networks.

MTN has an account at Airtel and vice versa. In between is Pegasus which facilitates transactions across the two telecoms.

When money is being transferred from MTN to Airtel, it is debited from a customer’s account and deposited

Pakistan’s TikTok ban is about censorship, not China

Pakistan’s TikTok ban is about censorship, not China

Pakistan is taking a cue from its close ally China on internet censorship by banning, of all things, a Chinese social media app.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority on Friday said it would block the short-form video app TikTok because of complaints “from different segments of the society against immoral/indecent content.” The authority said that TikTok, which is owned by Beijing-based ByteDance, has not created a satisfactory way to block offensive content following a warning to get its house in order in July.

TikTok says it has protections in place and hopes to settle the matter.

The ban is notable because, unlike countries such as India and the United States that have already gone after TikTok, Pakistan doesn’t have a tense political relationship with China. The two share close economic, diplomatic and military ties, and Pakistan is an integral part of China’s ambitious Belt and Road infrastructure initiative.

Experts have long been concerned about China’s ability to influence its allies to mirror its approach to the internet. China has worked for decades on its massive censorship mechanism, which shuts out content widely available elsewhere on the web.

So the decision to ban TikTok could be rooted in Pakistan’s desire to emulate its neighbor, rather than act as an attack on China, according to Usama Khilji, director of the Pakistani digital rights group Bolo Bhi.

“This could be taking a page out of the Chinese playbook. We know how heavy censorship regimes are in China,” said Khilji, who added that Pakistan has made use of the “Chinese model of media control.”

And compared with actions taken or threatened by New Delhi and
