Lebanese state-owned mobile operator Alfa, managed by Orascom Telecom, has signed a deal with Astellia to provide an enhanced quality of service (QoS) monitoring system for its 3G network. Assaad Abousleiman, Alfa’s chief technology officer, announced: ‘This partnership comes in line with the national QoS network plan for 2012 which has set concrete targets. Astellia’s 3G+ monitoring solution will allow us to proactively address any quality problems on our 3G+ network and analyse hidden network issues… This will enhance the efficiency and performance of our network and result in offering our entire base of subscribers of 1.7 million with a first class quality of experience (QoE)… and allow us to address all requirements within the set timelines.’ Alfa previously used Astellia for a 2G monitoring solution, and the company also performed a three-month audit for Alfa’s 3G W-CDMA/HSPA network following its official launch on 1 November 2011. ‘Through this contract, Astellia is… providing a deeper understanding of the inter dependencies between network equipment, subscribers, mobile devices, voice and data services,’ said Ali Wansa, managing director (Middle East) at Astellia.
