Siemens Mobile to build GSM network in Iraq by year’s end
Siemens Mobile has won a $8.6 million contract to provide equipment to mobile operator Asia-Cell to expand its GSM network in northern Iraq and enhance the mobile infrastructure with new installations.
The new partnership was introduced by Asia-Cell's partner Wataniya Telecom, headquartered in Kuwait, who has already teamed up with Siemens as its preferred vendor in Kuwait and Tunisia.
As well as the core network and radio equipment, the contract also includes delivery of an Intelligent Network which will increase Asia Cell's competitiveness in the voice and data convergence arena and enable delivery of new value add services to its subscribers.
Asia Cell already operates a commercially running GSM network in North Iraq, enabled by its second partner Huawei. — (menareport.com)
