Samsung Electronics and Bayanat Al-Oula for Network Services, a leading emerging alternative telecom services provider in Saudi Arabia, are teaming up to deploy the largest mobile WiMax network in the region to date.

The deal will see Samsung supply mobile WiMax equipment and devices to Bayanat Al-Oula during the next two years and will result in the largest mobile WiMax deployment in the Middle East region.

Bayanat Al-Oula plans to launch commercial services based upon mobile WiMAX technology in Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam and Mecca before expanding its availability across more territories in KSA.

Since the establishment of Bayanat Al-Oula in 2004, the company has been developing its networks and operations to serve the Saudi market.

Abdulmajeed Elshawa, CEO of Bayanat Al-Oula, said: "We envision mobile WiMax will revolutionise data services in the same way that mobile networks revolutionised voice services."
