Mobile operator Etisalat Nigeria has renewed its managed services contract with Alcatel-Lucent.

Under the renewed two-year multivendor managed services agreement, Alcatel-Lucent will be responsible for Etisalat’s network in the south-west of the country, including Lagos, by providing services including network operation and optimisation, consulting, design, spare parts management, maintenance and project management.

Adolfo Hernandez, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s activities in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said that the contract “further strengthens” the vendor’s “longstanding cooperation” with Etisalat.

Managed services agreements are becoming increasingly popular, particularly in many African countries, where competition between operators is fierce.

Etisalat competes with Bharti Airtel, MTN, Globacom, and the mobile arm of incumbent operator Nitel in Nigeria, which is widely viewed as one of Africa's most competitive markets.
