Pape Gorgui Toure is a Senegalese engineer who has developed an exceptional network and services simulator based on telecommunications / ICT called ictNetSim. To date, no simulator has reached this level of sophistication and precision, even in the management of network and services convergence.
This simulator is the result of over 30 years of experience in the telecommunications world. Indeed, Pape Toure’s experience can be summarized as follows:
While representing Senegal and Sonatel within cooperation institutions among the members of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), P.G. Toure was appointed Chairman of the Africa Pricing Group by the World Telecommunication Standardization Conference. He coordinated continental positions for the adoption of important texts such as:
After 7 years with ITU as an international civil servant, Pape Toure decided to devote three years of his life (2007-2010) in developing the ictNetSim simulator. This simulator allows, among others:
1. For Network Operators (mobile, fixed ...)
a. to dimension their networks to suit the volume of demand;
b. to compute cost-based services tariffs to clients;
c. to know how much services offered to competitors cost;
d. To know whether or not migration to NGN (Next Generation Networks) would be appropriate;
2. For Regulatory authorities:
a. to arbitrate disputes between operators on interconnection rates;
b. to determine the merits of the proposed tariffs by operators;
This bilingual simulator (French, English) has the ability to rebuild an operator’s network and to recreate the complete architecture of the operator’s network, and much more. By incorporating, for example, OPEX, CAPEX and the cost of capital of an operator, traffic flows of different switches in the network, etc., it manages to compute, among other things, per minute tariffs based on actual production costs of each service sold, no matter the network type and technologies.
This valuable son of Africa is now courted by many operators and regulators on the African continent, which proves that Africans are beginning to trust each other. Therefore, it is permitted to believe in a prosperous Africa that will be developed by the expertise of an African elite at the service of Africa.
