Pape Gorgui Toure is a Senegalese engineer who has developed an exceptional network and services simulator called ictNetSim. This simulator is the result of over 30 years’ experience in the telecommunications industry. Indeed, Pape Toure’s experience can be summarized as follows:

After 7 years working for ITU (International Telecommunication Union), Pape Toure decided to devote almost 4 years of his life (2007-2010) to develop the ictNetSim simulator.

IctNetSim is a bilingual simulator (French, English) that can rebuild an operator’s network and reshape its complete architecture, etc. By incorporating, for example, Opex, Capex, the cost of capital of an operator, traffic, etc. the simulator computes, among others, per minute /megabyte tariffs based on the actual production costs of each service sold by the operator, no matter the technology used by the operator (2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, etc.).

According to Pape Toure, his simulator is one the most sophisticated tools in the telecommunications industry.
