Telecom Lead India: VAS major Donjin Communication
Technology is planning to set up research and development center in India.
The plan, which is in drawing stage, will depend on
approval from the India government.
The Chinese VAS player already has a research and
development center in China. Our second R&D center will be in India. India
is a major market for us. We see India taking over China in our revenues in the
next 4-5 years,” John He, CEO of DONJIN Communication Technology,
told Telecom Lead.
Out of its total workforce of 280, more than 40 percent
is in R&D.
Donjin Communication is also planning to expand presence
in Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Africa and the Middle East.
In 2011, Donjin Communication revenue from India declined
around 30 percent primarily due to difficult market conditions.
In the first six months of 2012, the VAS players have
reported more than 40 percent growth. Donjin Communication’s target is to
achieve 100 percent growth in the calendar year.
John says the growth is possible as the Indian telecom
market is picking up well. Video demand will spur growth in India. Both 3G and
4G will bring business to VAS providers,” John added.
In line with revenue growth and potential, Donjin
Communication will be expanding its manpower in India from the present 6,
according to Hariharan Iyer, country manager, Donjin Communication.
Donjin Communication is expected to do well since there
is significant demand for its Mobile Signaling (MsVAS) gateway. Targeted at the
telecom service provider and enterprise segment, MsVAS gateway is based on the
Donjin Tech’s Keygoe series of multimedia central office.
The Donjin MsVAS platform can provide services such as
mobile phone location query, mobile phone signature, mobile phone name card,
intelligent answer service, asterisk(*) code service , MAP short message
service(SMS) and authentication authorization accounting (AAA) of 3G.
The platform has the ability to access the core network,
IN, signaling networks through the SS7 and supports various control signaling
for complicated value added services. With key features such as support for all
signaling, distributed deployment, link load share, dual computer hot backup,
high scalability and openness, it is expected to add value to the telecom
service providers and enterprises.
