Kuwait‘s Mobile Telecommunications Company Group, MTC, has signed contracts with Motorola in Middle East and Africa worth more than US $30 million as part of a network expansion initiative.



MTC will deploy Motorola solutions to boost the capacity, availability and voice quality of its network in Kuwait, while enabling 2.5G expansion capabilities for its 1.5 million subscribers.



MTC will be among the first telecom operators in the Middle East to deploy Motorola’s Adaptive Multi Rate (AMR) solution. The end-to-end AMR offering is designed to improve voice quality across MTC’s entire network, especially in more remote areas, at the edge of MTC’s coverage range, as well as in buildings.



A significant element in the MTC upgrade includes Motorola services and support to ensure that MTC is fully optimising its GSM and GPRS networks. These solutions enable MTC to benchmark its network performance against that of the world’s leading telecom operators, and improve its subscribers’ communication experience by adjusting applications and enhancing network utilisation.



MTC has also opted for Motorola’s GPRS network optimisation service and related value-added services.


“This extensive upgrade is expected to boost subscriber confidence by enhancing the efficiency of MTC’s network,” commented Ali Amer, director of sales in the Middle East, North and French Africa region, Motorola Networks.
