Omantel, the Sultanate’s incumbent monopoly telco, has enlisted Alcatel to build a high capacity broadband access network and facilitate its evolution to next generation networks.

Under the deal, Alcatel will deploy its Litespan next generation digital loop carrier (NG DLC) access solution in two phases, providing around 45,000 connections in the regions of Al Ghubra and Al Khadra.

Through the solution and its integrated Alcatel 1353 Litespan Management System, Omantel says it will reduce its operating costs while delivering new narrowband and broadband services (POTS, ISDN and DSL).

“Alcatel’s access solution will enable Omantel to meet the increase in demand for broadband services, allowing us to build on our current service offering as the network requirements evolve,” says Dr. Amer Awadh Al Rawas, Omantel’s executive vice-President.

“Alcatel Litespan’s temperature resistant design also made it ideal for deployment in Oman,” he adds.
