Motorola has announced an agreement to implement equipment for Saudi Arabia’s second GSM mobile operator, Mobily from Etihad Etisalat. Mobily will be provided with a GSM Base-Station System (BSS) mobile network including Enhanced Data for GSM Evolution (EDGE) and Push-To-Talk over Cellular (PoC). Under the contract, Motorola will also provide a turnkey Radio Access Network (RAN) for GSM and EDGE, including Horizon II base stations. The network will cover parts of the western, southern and northern regions of Saudi Arabia, and in addition to providing traditional voice services, will be able to offer subscribers walkie-talkie style communication using Motorola’s PoC solution. By offering PoC services, Mobily will be able to benefit from additional revenue streams, while providing its subscribers with quick one-touch access to their friends, family and colleagues. “We were seeking a strong revenue-generating solution to enhance wireless service offerings and delivery for our customers,” says Khalid Al Kaf, the CEO of Mobily. “We chose Motorola to help advance our mission to provide Saudi Arabians with quality telecommunications services, including its latest innovations such as Push-To-Talk over Cellular,” he adds.
