Iraqi mobile operator, Korek, has signed a three-year managed services contract with Ericsson.

Ericsson will provide field maintenance services including day-to-day services for Korek’s network in Baghdad.

The vendor will help Korek improve efficiency across its base station and microwave sites and aim to improve network quality.

The deal will help Korek, which is owned by France Telecom, to focus on customer service.

Ericsson and Korek have previously worked on projects including the deployment of a billing post-paid system and the preparation of the operator’s network for 3G and LTE.

Ghada Gebara, CEO, Korek, said that the deal was part of its strategy to focus on delivering network quality and expansion to cope with a growing customer base.
