Etisalat awards Huawei five-year managed services deal

20 Jun 2013

Huawei has announced that it has been awarded a new managed services contract from Etisalat Nigeria, covering an expanded maintenance scope for both passive infrastructure and active infrastructure (SDH/PDH nodes). The five-year deal also includes site physical services, passive maintenance of core infrastructure and maintenance of both Huawei and third-party SDH/PDH nodes in all areas where the vendor’s radio access infrastructure is deployed. The latest award follows the successful completion of an establish operate transfer (EOT) contract (initiated with a letter of intent in November 2007) and a subsequent two-year managed services deal, which was signed in 2011. Huawei says its managed services guarantee network availability, performance and quality, and improves end user experience.
