The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) of Qatar has selected Ericsson to provide services to support the implementation and the management of the new telecommunication ducts infrastructure in Qatar.
Patrik Melander, vice president and head of Ericsson GCC and Pakistan, said: “Through this partnership, we are spurring an increasingly Networked Society in Qatar as we expand our services to support the needs of Industry and Society customers. This deal marks a key milestone in our partnership with CRA Qatar.”
By using Ericsson Network Engineer, the CRA will benefit from a GIS-based mapping tool which will help it to keep records of the new telecommunication duct infrastructure.
The CRA is deploying the telecoms ducts in cooperation with the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MICT), the CRA and the Public Works Authority Ashghal.
