KERRY TECHNOLOGY PARK, Ireland -- Asiacell, the first and largest private Iraqi telecommunications company and the first mobile telecom company to provide coverage for all of Iraq, today announced rolling out mobile voice, broadband and SMS services across remote communities in Iraq using the Altobridge lite-site solution.

A satellite-backhauled, solar-powered, 2G/3G solution, the Altobridge lite-site enables mobile network operators to bring mobile connectivity to remote communities. Currently, the solution is being deployed in previously unconnected communities in Sulaimaniya in Northern Iraq.

“For over a decade, Asiacell has been pioneering the provision of products and services that enhance the quality of life and business for Iraqis. Telecommunications is the backbone of any progressive economy and is a key driver of socioeconomic growth, which is why we have made it our mission to ensure that telecom services are available to all Iraqis regardless of their location. Asiacell is the first telecom company to provide coverage for all 18 provinces, and to supply mobile voice, broadband and SMS services to remote communities that are not traditionally associated with revenue generating potential,” said Dr. Diar Ahmed, Asiacell CEO.
