DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd, (“Huawei”), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, announced today that the Emirates Telecommunications Corporation (“Etisalat”) has selected Huawei as its major supplier for the construction of its nationwide UMTS/HSPA network.

Under the contract, Huawei will provide the new generation UMTS equipment including more than one thousand Node-B base stations for the construction of a nationwide (UMTS/ HSPA) network, which will be the first HSPA network based on Iub/IP (Interface UMTS B/ Internet Protocol) transmission in Middle East and North Africa. Being a fast developing multinational operator, Etisalat has networks covering more than 14 countries including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Sudan. Huawei has been working with Etisalat since December 2003 for the launch of its commercial 3G services in the UAE. The 3-year partnership has laid a strong foundation for further collaboration between Etisalat and Huawei for the construction of its UMTS/HSPA network in the UAE.

“The UAE HSPA network has a significant strategic implication to Etisalat. It sets the ground for global expansion of our 3G development,” said Nasser Salim, General Manager, Etisalat Network Planning. “Huawei’s innovative solutions offer us the competitive advantage and will help us consolidate our leadership in the global 3G marketplace.

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.
