Qatar National Broadband Network Company (Qnbn) has selected Ericsson to deploy a broadband network infrastructure using optical fiber (FTTx) in Qatar. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The network, which is set to begin rolling out immediately, will use Ericsson’s Fiber Optic Solution, Fiber Cables and Central offices. Qnbn will deploy a passive network infrastructure, providing equal and open access to operators to offer choice for the end-user and efficiently leveraging existing and new infrastructure in Qatar.

“Qnbn represents a bold step forward in Qatar’s drive to be a leading knowledge based economy and continuous access to a high-speed network is essential for economic development and innovation,” said Mohamad Al-Mannai, Qnbn’s Chief Executive Officer. “Together with Ericsson we hope to be able to enrich connectivity in Qatar and continue to provide an ideal environment for business development and economic growth.”
