Viva Bahrain in deal to upgrade Menatelecom network

VIVA, Bahrain’s leading telecommunications service provider and Huawei, a global ICT solutions provider, have signed a System and Network Transformation contract to upgrade Menatelecom’s Network infrastructure. This contract comes after VIVA Bahrain completed its recent acquisition of Menatelecom in January 2018.

Under the agreement, VIVA and Huawei aim to substantially enhance Menatelecom’s Customer experience by upgrading all elements of Menatelecom’s Network. The project is expected to be completed over a span of 6 months and will cover Core, RAN, Transport network and IT infrastructure. The project will include investments in a series of network expansions for both Menatelecom and VIVA in order to maintain focus on improving the Home user’s experience and introducing the latest wireless radio technologies as part of VIVA’s 5G readiness strategy. Furthermore, VIVA also aims to elevate its own Voice users’ experience by deploying various upgrades to its Voice over LTE technology.

Commenting on the transformation project, VIVA Bahrain’s CEO Mr. Ulaiyan Al Wetaid said, “VIVA Bahrain has always strived towards investing and deploying the most innovative ICT infrastructure in the Kingdom of Bahrain and we remain committed to providing the best-in-class customer experience to Bahrain’s Commercial, Corporate and Home customers. The Menatelecom acquisition and partnership with Huawei will enable us to accelerate VIVA’s and Menatelecom’s network transformation and generate opportunities for deploying newer technologies in the Kingdom”.

“This collaboration marks yet another key milestone for VIVA in its journey to expand its footprint in the Kingdom, provide best-in-class customer experience, and prepare to offer 5G services across Bahrain” added Mr. Al Wetaid.

CEO of Huawei Bahrain Mr. John Luyuedong said, “We at Huawei are proud of our long-term strategic alliance with VIVA. Today, we are very excited to be part of VIVA’s growth and expansion plans and we aim to leverage our global experience and capabilities towards delivering the best in class service to our strategic partner.”
