KUWAIT CITY -- Kuwait's Mobile Telecommunications Company Group, MTC, has signed contracts with Motorola (NYSE:MOT) in Middle East and Africa worth more than US $30 million as part of a network expansion initiative. MTC will deploy Motorola solutions to boost the capacity, availability and voice quality of its network in Kuwait, while enabling 2.5G expansion capabilities for its more than 1.5 million subscribers.

MTC, which has been a Motorola customer for more than a decade, will now be among the first telecom operators in the Middle East to deploy Motorola's Adaptive Multi Rate (AMR) solution. The end-to-end AMR offering is designed to improve voice quality across MTC's entire network, especially in more remote areas, at the edge of MTC's coverage range, as well as in buildings.

"In a competitive telecoms market such as Kuwait, subscribers must have the access, voice quality and network availability to meet their communications needs. The Motorola solutions and services that MTC is deploying will enable us to offer those key deliverables to a wider base of mobile users," said Mr. Khaled Al Hajeri, chief technology officer for MTC Group.
