Mobily has renewed its contract with Nokia Networks to manage its network operations and expand its 2G, 3G and 4G networks in order to boost its offering in Saudi Arabia’s Central and Northern regions.
The operator has selected one vendor for each site to simplify its network management.
Alaa Malki, chief network officer at Mobily, said: “Our top priority is ensuring the best possible customer experience even when our network becomes more complex due to multiplicity of network layers, especially when providing data services. Nokia Networks became the best choice for outsourcing Mobily’s network operations, and we renewed the contract for five more years. In addition, its radio technology will help us expand our network capacity to provide further improved voice and data services for our customers.”
Muawieh Abdul Rahman, head of mobily customer team at Nokia Networks, said: “Our global best practises in managed services help Mobily completely focus on its core business without being distracted by running its multi-technology, multi-vendor networks. With our advanced technologies and service excellence, Mobily achieves world-class network quality and operational efficiency, and consolidates its strong position in a highly competitive market. Also, our radio technologies help the operator simplify its network architecture and reduce costs.”
