Nokia announced that Informatics and Telecommunications Public Company (ITPC) – one of the companies of Iraq’s Ministry of Communication (MoC) – has selected IP routing technology to serve as the main backbone of the country’s internet infrastructure.
The deployment aims to set up a smooth and secure mechanism for internet flow from tier-1 internet providers to Iraq via the country’s Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Rima Manna, head of the Middle East Market Unit, Nokia, said.
AlAwsat Telecommunication Services will be partnering with Nokia to deploy the technology. Al-Awsat will support with installation, civil works and required power supply through generators for the deployment.
Nokia said its Service Router (SR) portfolio delivers the network performance and service richness necessary for operators to provide the best possible internet services. Nokia will supply and install several of its IP routers, including 7750 SR-s, 7750 SR-e and 7250 IXR for the ITPC network to support IP services and functions.
Nokia’s commissioning, network design, and integration professional services will help deploy the network, which serves millions of subscribers, smoothly and efficiently.
