Etisalat Group signs 4G LTE agreements with Alcatel-Lucent

Mobile network operator Etisalat and Alcatel-Lucent have signed a joint agreement to extend Etisalat’s LTE coverage across its footprint including a new partnership in Sri Lanka.

Etisalat is deploying Alcatel-Lucent’s lightRadio solution for this extension to develop the most efficient and sustainable means to deliver a 4G LTE-FDD (fourth generation long-term evolution frequency-division duplexing) network and high speed mobile broadband to its subscribers.

In preparation for the forthcoming award of LTE licenses in Sri Lanka, Etisalat has signed an agreement with Alcatel Lucent to ensure the operator’s service roll out is as fast as the speeds promised by LTE technologies. Etisalat Lanka already offers the fastest mobile broadband experience in Sri Lanka and through LTE will bring broadband connectivity across the country.

Etisalat is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the Middle East, operating in 15 countries and serving over 139 million subscribers.
