Integrated Telecoms Company (ITC) has selected Cramer's OSS platform to manage its next generation network. With the total number of internet users in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) growing by more than 1000%, according to the Internet World Stats, ITC, is capitalising on this demand by building an IP network.

The network, which is being built by information and communications technology solutions provider Intracom, is expected to be staged by the end of 2005. Cramer's OSS platform will be deployed over the finished network and will play a pivotal role in managing ITC's service portfolio and streamlining its network management. Cramer will support the delivery of a range of customised services including digital leased lines, broadband, wireless communications and IP services.

"We are in the process of building the most sophisticated IP network in the Middle East, and Cramer's OSS platform will play a central role in allowing us to rapidly deploy high quality next generation services," says Dr, Mohammed Omar, president and CEO of ITC. "By using Cramer's technology, we will have an accurate and consolidated view of our entire network infrastructure. This information will allow us to provision services effectively, which will in turn reduce operating costs and enhance our customer experience," he adds.

When embarking on a project of this scale, it is reassuring to be working with technology partners like Cramer and Intracom. Their combined experience in deploying and managing IP network infrastructure will be critical to the success of this project," notes Dr. Omar.

"It is a significant milestone for Cramer to be at the heart of a new network of this magnitude in such a rapidly developing region," says Jon Craton, co-founder and chief marketing officer for Cramer. "This project will give Cramer the opportunity to demonstrate its expertise with IP networks to transform the economics of a carrier's business.”
