Nawras launches HD mobile voice
Service to be rolled out across operator’s entire network in coming months
Omani telecoms operator Nawras is incorporating High Definition (HD) voice technology to its network, Telegeography reported.
The technology will allow the provider, which is part of Qatar's Ooredoo Group, to deliver high-quality sound for calls between mobile phones in the sultanate.
The HD voice service is currently running across Muscat and the Batinah region and will be rolled out over Nawras' entire network over the coming months.
"We are the first operator in Oman and third in the Gulf Co-operation Council [GCC] who have adopted this state-of-the-art HD voice network technology," said Wolfgang Wemhoff, chief technology officer at Nawras.
"Certified by the GSM Association, Nawras customers can now enjoy amazing clarity on voice calls, even in noisy environments, such as near a highway or in a shopping mall. This is possible due to the clever way that the technology is able to reduce background sounds and boost the speaker's voice."
