Ooredoo Oman renews deal with Huawei


Oman’s top telecom company Ooredoo, has recently announced its agreement with Chinese telecom vendor Huawei, creating a powerful alliance that will start on the 1st of January 2022. 

Zawya first reported on Ooredoo’s milestone, noting that the three-year agreement adds to an already existing contract between the two tech firms. 

The new agreement reckons that Huawei will be responsible for providing Ooredoo with network performance management services coupled with operations and maintenance.  

“Our partnership, which began in 2012, will focus on optimizing our digital operations using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence and machine learning-based technologies and tools,” Ooredoo’s Chief Technology and Information Officer Dr. Ahmed Abdullah Al Abri said. 

“As we continue to accelerate our digital transformation and supporting the Sultanate’s 2040 Vision, we look forward to launching even more innovative services to enrich our customers’ digital lives,” Al Abri added. 

Robin Chen Bing, Huawei’s general manager based in Oman, boasted about the extensive years the company has worked with Ooredoo, noting that this agreement will further act as an “important milestone for both parties, marking the phase in the transformation into more automated and intelligent operations.” 

Ooredoo’s main goal goes back to providing users with next-generation technologies that upgrade their online experience.  

As the operator continues to pour in investments in growing its infrastructure and number of partnerships, it places the country as a global competitor in the international race towards digital innovation.
