NCC looking to develop MDMS to facilitate the mandatory registration of all SIM-based devices
The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, says it intends to develop a Mobile Device Management System, MDMS to combat the influx of fake Information and Communication Technology devices in the country.
According to Danbatta who was represented by the Director, Policy Competition and Economic Analysis of the Commission, Mr. Mohammed Babajika, the proposed MDMS would have the capacity to facilitate the mandatory registration of all SIM-based devices in the country.
“Counterfeiting is a global challenge that has elicited a common disquiet among stakeholders worldwide, especially, in respect to the continued influx of counterfeit and illegal ICT devices into both developed and developing countries”.
Danbatta said that the unchecked import and use of unregistered, cloned, substandard, counterfeit, stolen and or non-compliant devices posed a considerable threat to Quality of Service, QoS and Quality of Experience QoE and security in the country.
