ITC & SOFRECOM Signs a Partnership Agreement

Integrated Telecom Company (ITC), the leading Information and Communications Technology Company in Saudi Arabia and Sofrecom, an Orange Group subsidiary, signed an agreement to lead the Outside Plant (OSP) implementation and management in all regions of Saudi Arabia for the next 3.5 years and to provide planning, design and supervision expertise and knowledge transfer to ITC employees.

Signing this agreement comes as a step toward ITC’s commitment to the agreed plan with Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) for rolling-out high-speed fiber optic broadband internet in Saudi Arabia.

ITC is initiating site supervision for the development of the OSP infrastructure project that is in-line with the Saudi Vision 2030. Indeed, the National Transformation Plan 2020 aspires to spread the FTTH in 90% of the dense and urban areas by the year 2020. For that, ITC has announced a major expansion plan for its FTTH broadband network in various cities. The company is interested to acquire the services for site supervisions and project management for OSP implementation.

Leveraging its deep expertise in broadband internet technology, Sofrecom, part of the Orange Group, will partner to help ITC in the Planning & Design of the new FTTx network as well to supervise the implementation supervision covering 640,000 Households.

This Project will enable ITC to provide triple play services such as voice, high speed Internet and multimedia over IP, including high definition TV, video on demand and home entertainment via a Fiber to the User (FTTU) architecture.

Ghassan Itani, ITC CEO, said: “This will help us empower the digital Saudi generation under Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Plan 2020. ITC will continue its journey to develop the infrastructure in Fiber Broadband to urban and dense area across the kingdom.”

“We aim to offer the best of our expertise to build a more connected world.” notes G Boudin, Group Sofrecom’s CEO. “Very High Broadband is key to support new digital services. This new agreement between ITC and Sofrecom demonstrates once again our reference position on VHB, and fulfills our aspiration to support the Digital Transformation of our customers.”
