Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and Cisco to Redesign STC Network to Support 5G Services

 

Dubai, GITEX – 16 October, 2018 - Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and Cisco today announced plans to collaborate on STC’s network architecture transformation. STC is embarking on a mass-scale networking and automation project to support new capabilities and future innovations including the evolution of enterprise services, enhanced broadband and IoT, as well as the demands of multicloud environments.

The new architecture buildout is based on Cisco’s flagship service provider routing platforms and automation software. Cisco will provide a highly efficient abstraction layer between the network services and the underlying infrastructure components in STC’s complex, heterogeneous environment. This will help enable STC reduce service activation time, improve capital and operational efficiency and deploy new revenue-generating services at a speed only automation can enable.

STC, the largest telecommunications operator in the Middle East, is driving the future of Saudi telecommunications in alignment with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 of a thriving knowledge-based economy and digital society. The vision is a major national plan that aims to drive Saudi Arabia’s economic diversification and competitiveness, while accelerating the development of public service sectors such as health, education, infrastructure, recreation and tourism.

STC plays a key role in Saudi Arabia’s digital transformation that is driven by shifts in content, compute and multi-cloud requirements. Increasing communication speed and low latency, along with dynamic provisioning capabilities realized through 5G networks, will help enable STC to respond to the demands of an increasing number of subscribers and provide new services to residential and enterprise customers.

“We are evolving our infrastructure and building a path to self-healing autonomous networking that can transform business outcomes and dramatically improve existing operating models,” said Eng. Hytham Al Faraj , Senior Vice President of Technology and Operations, STC . “Working closely with a world leader like Cisco will help ensure our network is the first in the region to benefit from the latest innovations in networking hardware and software development.”

“Cisco has a long history and a strategic commitment to STC and the prosperity of Saudi Arabia. This is exemplified by our multi-faceted Country Digitization Acceleration program that supports the development of the national digital infrastructure and a sustainable innovation ecosystem,” said Ali Amer, Managing Director, Global Service Provider Sales, Cisco Middle East and Africa.
