Kalimat Telecom selects Parallel Wireless for network installation in Iraq

kalimatKalimat Telecom, a subsidiary of Kuwait’s Trade Links, has selected Parallel Wireless, Inc, one of the leading providers of the world’s first end-to-end software-based unified network solution across 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G, to build mobile broadband network in Iraq

According to the ‘GSMA Mobile Economy: the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) 2018’ report, Iraq has about a 52 per cent wireless internet penetration rate, presenting wide opportunity for telecom service providers in that market.

As poor infrastructure and high operating costs are stunting development, Kalimat recognised the inflexibility of legacy cellular solutions to bring digital services to the Iraqi population.

Parallel Wireless's fully-virtualised HetNet and core solutions aim to deploy a distributed virtualised mobile broadband network delivering consumer and enterprise wireless services across the region cost-effectively and on an accelerated timeline. The Parallel Wireless software-based architecture is set to deliver ease of deployment and the flexibility required to meet the changing needs of this market.

With Parallel Wireless, the overall CAPEX, OPEX and complexity associated with building out and managing the network are reduced through network automation. As a result, the high-speed mobile broadband network will provide the region with a range of advanced new residential and business voice and data services, helping with the digital society realisation.

Amrit Heer, head of business development at Parallel Wireless, said that the initiative is expected to cost-effectively enable connectivity by simplifying installation and increasing flexibility and sustainability through software for new wireless network build-outs.

“As a result, the costs associated with building or modernising mobile networks is reduced and connectivity can be brought to every single person in the world,” Heer further added.
