Moroccan ISP and fixed line licensee Maroc Connect has selected Chinese vendor ZTE Corp to deploy an IP CDMA2000 solution for a planned nationwide telecoms network. The network is scheduled to be rolled out in stages over the next three years and will offer enhanced fixed line and limited mobility voice, data and value added services. The contract includes network scalability to ensure the smooth upgrade to full mobility and push-to-talk functionality provided by ZTE´s CDMA2000-based GoTa (Global Open Trunking Architecture) solution. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database Maroc Connect won the country’s third national fixed line licence in September 2005 and aims to launch its first telephony services by the fourth quarter of 2006. Morocco’s second largest cellco Médi Télécom (Meditel) became Maroc Télécom’s first fixed line competitor in May 2006 when it launched fixed-wireless services over a hybrid network.
