November 5th, 2019:   Almost two years after the announcement of their partnership to pilot the implementation and management of Outside Plant (OSP) across Saudi Arabia's regions by 2020, the Integrated Telecom Company (ITC), leader in information and communication technologies in Saudi Arabia and Sofrecom, a subsidiary of the Orange Group, specialized in Consulting and engineering in the telecommunications sector, are proud to announce that they have connected more than 400,000 households to the FTTH network.

 

The partnership which started in 2017 between ITC and Sofrecom, leads to sharing the experience and technological expertise of the Orange Group in the FTTH network. The detailed design and supervision of this network rollout is handled by Sofrecom. The Design methods and tool optimization proposed by Sofrecom contribute remarkably to the productivity enhancement of ITC teams. 

 

In addition, Sofrecom's teams monitor the deployment and effective implementation of the network in accordance with ITC's engineering rules and by ensuring its operation and sustainability.

 

This project will enable ITC to ensure optimal and sustainable network service quality. Customers will benefit from new services such as high definition television, video-on- demand and home entertainment through fiber architecture to the user (FTTx).

 

Ghassan Itani, ITC President & CEO, said;  This major project actively contributes to the program with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) for the deployment of the very high fixed flow in Saudi Arabia as part of the strategic plan «Saudi Vision 2030». Indeed, the Kingdom's 2030 National Transformation Plan aims to deploy FTTH in 90% of densely populated cities and 66% in other urban zones.

 

«I am proud of the trust shown by the ITC group by holding Sofrecom to design, supervise and control the deployment of the FTTH network of the Kingdom. This major project will bring very high flows to the Kingdom's households and businesses. Our teams are fully committed to the success of this major project”, added Guillaume Boudin, CEO of Sofrecom Group.
