Kalimat Telecom, a subsidiary of Kuwait’s Trade Links, has selected Parallel Wireless for building their mobile broadband network in Iraq. This is expected to be one of the largest fully virtualised commercial mobile broadband networks in the region.

In this regard, Parallel Wireless's fully-virtualised HetNet and core solutions would enable Kalimat to deploy a distributed virtualized mobile broadband network, which would deliver consumer and enterprise wireless services across the region cost-effectively and on an accelerated timeline. In addition, Parallel Wireless’ software-based architecture would provide ease of deployment and the flexibility required to meet the changing needs of the market.

Further, Parallel Wireless would enable Kalimat to significantly reduce the overall CAPEX, OPEX and complexity associated with building out and managing the network 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.

Commenting on the development, Amrit Heer, Head of Business Development, EME, Parallel Wireless said, “We are committed to our role to help eliminate the digital divide. We work with partners such as Kalimat Telecom to help them cost-effectively enable connectivity by simplifying installation and increasing flexibility and sustainability through our software for new wireless network buildouts. 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.”

Meanwhile, Wilson Varghese, Group CEO Trade Links and CEO, Kalimat Telecom, said, “We initially selected Parallel Wireless based on their innovation in the area of Open RAN and virtualisation and their work with some of the world’s leading MNOs. Our decision has been reinforced many times throughout the initial deployment, as we were continually impressed by the speed with which we were able to move from lab trials to roll-outs; a process that took very little time for us to virtualise the core services required for the success of the project to deliver a better service to our customers, rural, suburban or urban, across regions.”
