Omantel selects TEOCO for mobile network optimisation

Omantel has partnered with service provider TEOCO for the delivery of managed services that span radio access network (RAN) planning and optimisation.

The agreement is an extension of an existing deal between the two companies and will see TEOCO provide its multi-vendor tools to optimise Omantel’s network performance without increasing capex.

“TEOCO is a long-term partner for Omantel and the logical choice for our mobile network planning and optimisation needs,” said Samy Ahmed Al Ghassany, COO of Omantel.

“We’re confident that TEOCO’s independent approach and its market-leading, multi-vendor tools will provide the best possible results in terms of network performance, capital overheads and the network quality of service experienced by our subscribers.”

TEOCO is also expected to use its complete RAN and Service Assurance suite of services to plan and optimise Omantel’s GSM, 3G and 4G network infrastructures.

“Mobile operators in the Middle East and North African region are increasingly looking towards independent third party providers like TEOCO to manage their network planning and optimisation requirements,” said Andrew Miceli, VP of sales for the Middle East at TEOCO.

“In doing so, operators can avoid the potential conflicts of interest that can arise when infrastructure vendors also control the optimisation and planning of their network.”
