Siemens has secured a 20 million EUR contract to design, install and integrate a GSM network and telecommunications services for the rural areas of Oman.

The deal with OmanTel is the latest in a recent string of success for the German vendor in the Sultanate.

The agreement also calls for the establishment of an ‘integrated training and testing’ centre within Oman. According to a statement from Siemens, the centre illustrates the vendor’s commitment to enhance the telecom sector in whole of the Middle East region.

“The Middle East region represents a new strategic dimension for Siemens,” said Dr. Abdullah Tourbah, vice president, Siemens information & communication mobile networks for the region.

“We are pursing a policy to evolve the region to be on a par with international telecom practices and quality of services. By trusting Siemens to significantly extend the GSM reach in the Sultanate and establish the training and testing centre, OmanTel is pioneering the role of preparing the region to cope with the ever increasing challenges in the telecom segment,” he added.
