Huawei migrates Safaricom M-PESA users to Mobile Money Platform

Telecom network vendor Huawei said its Mobile Money Platform is supporting the Vodafone money service or M-PESA for Safaricom in Kenya.

Huawei Mobile Money Platform migrated 12.8 million active subscribers overnight. M-PESA in Kenya is the largest M-PESA deployment within Vodafone Group and the largest Mobile Financial Service (MFS) globally.

Bob Collymore, CEO of Safaricom said the migration is a milestone between Safaricom and Huawei, and a key milestone for the Vodafone Group and Vodafone Africa.

Michael Joseph, director of Mobile Money, Vodafone Group, said: “Moving M-PESA onto the Huawei Mobile Money Platform is probably one of the most important IT and migration projects that many of us have ever worked on.”
