Qatar Telecommunications has enlisted Motorola to expand its GSM network in a deal valued at US$25 million.

The GSM network, to be installed across Qatar’s countrywide wireless system, includes Motorola’s Horizon macro GSM 900/1800 MHz base stations. It will enable Qatar Telecommunications to provide its cellular subscribers with enhanced coverage and features.

“As Qatar Telecommunications continues to expand, we are delighted to be working with Motorola. Motorola has a deep understanding of our specific regional needs and is committed to providing us with the latest technology so we may continually deliver the very highest network performance for our customers,” said Dr. Nasser M. Marafih of Qatar Telecommunications.

We are looking forward to working with them as they expand their network, grow their business, and consolidate their position as a leading operator in the Middle East,” said Jeff Cherif, general manager of Motorola GTSS in the Middle East and Africa.
