Under the terms of this frame agreement, INTRACOM TELECOM’s wireless solutions will be deployed in Etisalat’s network expansion projects enabling the operator to effectively backhaul 2G/3G traffic and to provide its business customers broadband wireless services.
Fadhil Ansari, Executive Vice President of Engineering at Etisalat said: “Wireless broadband is a strategically important technology in the Middle East and Africa. Besides the backhauling of 2G, 3G and Wimax base stations, enabling the easy expansion of the Network, the systems can provide high-speed connectivity to customers located in areas where it is not possible either to deploy fiber, or to maintain it. Through managing our network infrastructure and investing in the latest technologies, we will be able to provide a seamless experience to our customers who should be able to access the Internet conveniently across any device that they choose.”
Mr. Alexandros Manos, Managing Director of INTRACOM TELECOM, stated: “The Middle Eastern, African and Asian telecommunication markets are the most rapidly growing in the world with local operators continuously investing in network expansion. Over a decade, INTRACOM TELECOM has been focusing on the wider MEA region, in which Etisalat is the leading operator. We regard this agreement as the foundation of a fruitful cooperation and are confident that Etisalat will benefit significantly from the technical excellence of our widely deployed product line.”

We furthermore look forward to contributing the fullest to its expansion plans through our high quality technical teams that we have been active in the region for the past 10 years,” commented Mr. Manolis Ikonomidis, Managing Director of INTRACOM Middle East.
