Nokia will modernise and optimise Etihad Etisalat (Mobily’s) IP and optical networks. Nokia’s next-generation routing and transport platforms will be deployed in the Central, Eastern and Northern parts of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Nokia’s Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution is designed to enable Mobily to address the future bandwidth needs of upcoming technologies like 5G, Cloud RAN and front-haul technologies.

Mobily will use Nokia’s products in its network in the MPLS and DWDM layers to make the existing network software controlled to reduce complexity, which in turn will allow it to enhance flexibility and agility. Mobily’s CEO Ahmed Aboudoma said: ‘This modernisation prepares Mobily for 5G technology, quicker expansion of services, and gives our customers enhanced service quality.’
