Nokia And Ooredoo Group Sign Strategic 5 Year Agreement, Including 5G

Nokia’s optical solutions will ensure expansion and applications flow for Ooredoo’s state-of-the-art optical network without constraint. This provides increased network flexibility and operational automation through zero-touch transparent photonic networking.

Nokia’s microwave transport supports 5G microwave growth and new spectrum like E-band. The transport networks will enable seamless launching of new services where communities and businesses can rely on privacy, security, and near instant response times.

Aziz Aluthman Fakhroo, Managing Director, Ooredoo Group, said: “This renewed contract is testimony to our growing partnership with Nokia to modernize and expand our network by rolling out world-class 4G and 5G services across North Africa and Southeast Asia. Thanks to Nokia’s advanced technology, our customers will be able to experience faster speeds and enhanced response times as well as more bandwidth.”

Pekka Lundmark, President and Chief Executive Officer at Nokia, said: “We are excited to continue delivering robust networks to Ooredoo’s customers. This new five-year deal will accelerate the benefits of Nokia’s technology – including 5G – for consumers in Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia and will enable businesses to digitalize and innovate with new services. The move to 5G will drive radical transformation across industries, communities and public services and we are proud to continue supporting Ooredoo Group on this journey.”
