Nawras to boost GSM, broadband capacity

Oman-based telecoms operator Nawras has signed a capacity contract with leading satellite operator SES. The deal on the NSS-6 satellite will allow Nawras to provide services such as high quality GSM backhaul and broadband across the sultanate, including rural areas. “Satellite is an important component in our network, as it caters for voice and Internet services in hard to reach locations,” said Nawras CTO, Wolfgang Wemhoff. “We have a trusted partner in SES, where we are assured of a robust and reliable service and the best technical solution, as well as a dedicated local team which understands the dynamics and specific requirements of our business here in Oman.”
