Iraq gets LTE

LTE services have been deployed in Iraq by Alcatel-Lucent and Regional Telecom, an operator in Northern Iraq.

Alcatel-Lucent is providing an end-to-end 4G LTE solution, including IP mobile backhaul, Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and elements of its platforms to allow Regional Telecom to introduce advanced IP-based services.

“Industry trends as well as our own experiences make it perfectly clear that high-speed mobile broadband is the major growth opportunity for the foreseeable future, and we are excited to be able to bring this impressive capability to our customers in Iraq,” said Kawa Junad, chairman of Regional Telecom.

“With the support of our dedicated partner Alcatel-Lucent, our 4G LTE services in Northern Iraq, Kurdistan Region, promise a significant contribution to the country’s efforts in further connecting with the global digital community.”
