Oman based Nawras says that it has selected Huawei as the preferred bidder
for network modernisation and managed services. The concerned parties have
signed a Letter of Intent to that effect.
The ultimate agreement will have Huawei providing Nawras’ Radio Access
Network (RAN) and undertaking a modernisation of the RAN so that it is optimally
designed to accommodate anticipated developments including the launch of LTE.
Separately, the parties intend to sign an agreement covering managed services
for both the fixed and mobile networks.
Final details of the contract are still to be negotiated. Capital expenditure
on the upgraded radio network and related transmission equipment is anticipated
to amount to a total investment of high double-digit million Omani Rials over
the next three years.
