Ooredoo Qatar has become the first network company in the Middle East to have an IPX+ enabled network, using Tata Communications IPX+ platform, thereby providing it with the latest technology innovations in mobile broadband service delivery and management, according to Tata Communications.
The platform will enable the company to have an easy and quick complete range of services such as signaling, data roaming and LTE Roaming. Tata communications IPX+ technology has been attracting attention and Allan Chan, its President of Global Carrier Services, said “mobile network operators looking to capitalize on the mobile data explosion, with more than 140 forward-looking operators in 40 countries are adopting our service.”
Data traffic has been increasing on mobile phones. Network companies are struggling to keep up with the demand especially when it concerns delivering data services beyond their networks. Studies have revealed that from 2012 to 2017, it will be increased by 13-fold worldwide. Yousuf Abdulla Al-Kubaisi, Ooredoo’s Chief Wholesale and International Officer hailed the accomplishments of several projects with Tata Communications in the past and considers the company to be the best place where they will be able “to roll out more innovative and tailored services” for their clients in the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia. Ooredoo is planning on putting its entire network to an IP-based backbone. It has released a voice over IPX+ as its first application in a step towards capitalizing on the opportunities the Tata Communications’ IPX+ connectivity platform offers. It is also more cost effective.
The connectivity platform will provide Ooredoo subscribers with integrated access to multiple data transport options over a converged IP network, supporting multiple services across networks. Ooredoo has been striving to keep Qatar as the most connected country in the region.
