ESPOO, Finland -- Algérie Télécom, Algeria’s state-owned operator, will soon be able to offer more reliable broadband connectivity to its subscribers across the largest country in Africa. To do this, the operator has appointed Nokia Networks to modernize its transport network sites with the highly flexible “Seamless MPLS” network. With this, subscribers of Algérie Télécom will soon enjoy significantly better data services.

“This project underlines our resolve to deliver a truly differentiated customer experience to our subscribers,” said Azouaou Mehmel, president and CEO of Algérie Télécom Group. “We have complete faith in Nokia Networks’ capability to deliver on our vision due to its technical knowledge and extensive experience in similar implementations. Nokia Networks is a natural choice for this initiative that will stregthen our position as the operator of choice for Algerian subscribers.”

Under the terms of the deal, Nokia Networks Global Services* project management and network implementation will assure the smooth deployment of the IP/MPLS (Internet Protocol/Multi Protocol Label Switching) solution from Juniper Networks, Nokia’s long-term and trusted partner. The Juniper Networks solution is optimized to provide industry-leading system scalability and performance of the transport network to address the unpredictable growth of data traffic. The deployment will save operating costs and enable Algérie Télécom to offer flexible end-to-end transport services more efficiently and securely across network domains.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
