DIDX, the world’s wholesale DID phone number marketplace of 25,000 telecom, voIP, and MVNO members, participated as a media partner and blogging team member for the November 17 – 19, 2015 AfricaCom in Cape Town, South Africa. The DIDX team shared the most popular article on the Africa Com blog during the month following up to AfricaCom of how mobile virtual network operators and competitive local exchange carriers can innovate and offer value add services that keep them as contenders despite the blurred lines of who provides Internet service, cable TV, satellite service, and/or cellular service with the title “Four technologies that telecom operator dreams are made of.”

“It was the chance of a lifetime to have the opportunity to meet with our current vendors and buyers who take part in our DIDX wholesale DID platform. For many of them, this was their first time to attend AFricaCom exhibition and conference sessions. We made sure to recommend AfricaCom to each member. It was also inspiring to have the chance to hear from Facebook about the free basic Internet services they have brought to more than 15 million people in 29 countries, including 14 countries just in Africa, but also in Pakistan, Colombia, India ad more. The free basic Internet services are now available to one billion people in the world. We are proud to have been a media partner and part of the blog team for AfricaCom 2015.” -Rehan Allahwala, CEO of Super Technologies, Inc. and inventor of DIDX.

The AfricaCom conference and exhibition each year gathers senior decision makers, innovative tech developers, and press from the world of technology to teach and learn, to showcase innovation, to foster leadership and maximise business networking opportunities with a special focus on the continent of Africa. Businesses in every technology sector, whether cellular, telecommunications, wireless, cable and satellite, connected cars and utilities and other services that can innovate and thrive on Internet of Things have the chance to leverage new revenue streams, new business partnerships, new products and services and even new pricing strategies.

Some of the most popularly attended conference sessions shared exciting topics such as making the most of Africa’s innovation leadership, investing in Digital Africa, assessing the impact of LTE launches, broadband access across Africa, and a Telecoms Academy mini-MBA program.

AfricaCom made available 300 visionary speakers such as Elizabeth Rossiello, CEO and founder of Bitpesa; John Bernard, Mozilla; Sebastian Crozier, CEO, Orange Horizons, and Alon Lits, General Manager, Sub-Saharan Africa, Uber.

“We believe that DIDX is not just a marketplace for telecom, mobile, VoIP, and Internet of Things companies to buy and sell DID phone numbers. We participate in dozens of conferences every year since 2000 such as AfricaCom, PTC, CommunicAsia, ITEXPO East and West, ITW, Asian Carriers Conference, CTIA Wireless, Mobile World Congress, and EXPOComm. We make sure to keep our wholesale membership as well as the industry up-to-date on how to increase revenue, services, customers, retention of customers and reputation. One of the best methods is to meet face-to-face with the people and organizations that can help make these positive experiences happen,” Suzanne Bowen, VP marketing DIDX and co-founder of Super Technologies, Inc. says.
