The Iraqi Telecoms and Post Company (ITPC) has tapped Swedish vendor Ericsson to upgrade and expand its wireline network, paving the way for the state-backed telco’s transition to an all-IP next generation network. The latest partnership agreement strengthens the five-year relationship between the two companies and positions Ericsson as the sole supplier for ITPC’s core network. Amir Al-Bayati, deputy minister of communication for technical affairs in Iraq, commented: ‘Our aim is to always satisfy our customers with the best customer experience. This deployment is particularly exciting as it will put us one step closer to our goal of satisfying our customers and grow our network to nine million subscribers by 2015, adding four million subscribers to our subscriber base’.
