The Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and Ericsson have extended their long-standing partnership to transform, expand and upgrade STC’s network in Saudi Arabia.
The move is part of STC’s plans to optimise its network performance, scalability and integration using Ericsson’s state of the art technologies, which have allowed STC to provide superior video delivery with assured quality of experience, catering for the high growth in demand for video and TV services in the Kingdom.
Through working with Ericsson, STC subscribers will enjoy an increase in the average throughput per user, faster call setup, minimum call disconnection, coverage availability -- especially in an indoor environment -- and high speed internet that suites all applications up to high definition video streaming.
“At STC, we always seek to offer the very best customer experience. Partnering with Ericsson will support us to deliver high quality connectivity both indoors and outdoors while expanding coverage to rural areas in the Kingdom,” says Khaled Biyari, senior vice president for technology, operations & IT. “We will also work jointly with Ericsson to develop and train our employees and students on technologies that already support STC’s business in Saudi Arabia aiming to fulfill the future demand for high calibers in the Saudi market.”
