Qatar's Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) has selected Ericsson to provide network management solutions and services to manage the new telecommunication ducts infrastructure that will be implemented in the country.
Ericsson will implement its Network Engineer Solution, which will provide the CRA with a GIS-based mapping tool to manage the new network of ducts that will be embedded in public roads. The management solution include a web client, which will enable field engineers to access data.
