Tunisiana, a Tunisia-based telecom operator, has signed an agreement with Astellia, a French network optimisation specialist, to improve the quality of its data network.
Astellia’s mobile network and performance monitoring technology is designed to provide faster access to multimedia content, particularly for subscribers on the move. It also increases equipment efficiency and increases the reliability of internet connections.
Tunisiana has already been using Astellia’s probe-based solution to optimise and monitor its networks.
Hatem Mestiri, CTO at Tunisiana, said: “Astellia’s experts’ recommendations enabled us to precisely localise problem areas and improve customer experience. This is particularly important in the current competitive environment where Tunisiana is launching innovative data services.”
Tunisiana covers more than half of the country’s market share with 5.7 million subscribers.
Earlier in January, Qatari telco Qtel bought Orascom’s Tunisiana stake in a $1.2 billion deal and has become the majority stakeholder in the North African telecom unit.
