Raghid Charara, managing director of SWIFTEL International Carrier Services (ICS), discusses the company’s activities and plans
Sponsored contentQ. SWIFTEL International has recently established its Carrier Services Division (SWIFTEL ICS). Can you tell us more about this entity?
SWIFTEL International was founded in Kuwait in 1995 and was providing since then several telecom services for all local operators in Kuwait – be it ZAIN, Ooredoo & VIVA.
Over the years, SWIFTEL International has built a history of performance and foresight in the telecommunications industry, and we, as SWIFTEL ICS, do enjoy the advantages of this successful track.
Also, we do leverage on the distinguished and influential presence our mother company Al Wazzan Group had sustained through its portfolio of businesses devoted to serve the worldwide community.
SWIFTEL ICS is an evolving carrier that is being engaged in revolutionary business practices in the voice industry, through handling a competitive portfolio of direct routes and international destinations, strategic partnerships, in addition to offering an array of voice turnkey services and solutions.
Q. What do you perceive from your participation in ITW 2017 as a main sponsor?
ITW hosts the biggest wholesale community worldwide, and hence participating in such a key event is particularly crucial to us.
In fact, we aim at creating awareness, raising our profile, and introducing SWIFTEL ICS to a broader base of clients and suppliers from the industry.
In parallel, we are looking into possible promising collaboration with operators and carriers across the world, and to strengthen our strategic alliances.
As a main sponsor, we perceive a fruitful and prosperous partnership with ITW to make this event a truly “beneficial platform for the wholesale community”, and to pave the way for international partnerships and growth.
Q. What about SWIFTEL ICS’s future plans and next steps?
2017 seems an exciting year so far; yet very challenging!
Facing the challenges in the industry, carriers are still urged to provide high-quality, reliable and affordable voice services, while remaining competitive!
SWIFTEL ICS is being inspired by its mother company to employ its full potential for developing several emerging markets, pursue a profitable business model, and demonstrate growth rates in the very near future.
SWIFTEL ICS is also accompanying the trend of providing e-services, data services, IOT and servicing MVNOs.
