LONDON -- Middle East Telecommunications Company (METCO), a leading integrator of telecommunication and information technology solutions in the Middle East and Africa, and NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701), a leading provider of IT and network solutions, today announced a new contract with Zain Kuwait that will enable the operator to increase its LTE, 3G and 2G network capacity, enabling it to continue to deliver high speed connectivity to consumers.

METCO's in-depth mobile network expertise, combined with NEC's iPASOLINK series of advanced microwave radio solutions and network management system, will upgrade Zain Kuwait's backhaul transmission network to meet growing mobile broadband demand. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.

METCO, appreciative and proud of their strategic relationship with Zain that began more than 25 years ago, also indicated that the new Zain Kuwait microwave network will be one of the most extensive in the world. Zain is currently the leader in the mobile broadband field in relations to the amount of active mobile customers who have already migrated to the LTE network, which is available nationwide.

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.
