“The Middle East continues to enjoy strong economic growth and the telecommunications sector is poised for rapid expansion with deregulation, strong investments in infrastructure upgrades, and the emergence of powerful regional carriers such as Etisalat, Orascom and Oger Telecom,” said Youssef Kassissia, UTStarcom’s vice president for the EMEA region.
UTStarcom plans to leverage an extensive portfolio of products and solutions that enable fixed, mobile and VoIP carriers to build next generation networks based on Internet Protocol and roll out enhanced converged services and applications to their user communities. Such solutions include broadband access, VoIP, broadband mobile wireless and enhanced services such as IPTV.
