Ooredoo Global Services (OGS), the wholesale arm of telecommunications provider Ooredoo, has announced three major agreements that will extend its range of services and international support.

Yousuf Abdulla Al-Kubaisi, CEO, OGS, said: “Ooredoo Global Services continues to forge ahead with its strategy to become the premium partner for wholesale carriers looking for connectivity in the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia. Over the last week, we have signed an agreement to manage a global undersea cable for Ooredoo, and extended our partnerships with two leading companies in order to offer the latest and best roaming and IP services.”

During the 2015 Capacity Middle East event in Dubai last week, the company confirmed its participation as a landing party for one of the world’s largest planned consortium cable projects. The SeaMeWe-5 Global Consortium Cable, which will land in Qatar and Oman, will follow a new high speed undersea route linking the Middle East with South East Asia and Western Europe and provide an important upgrade for international networks, enhancing Internet speeds, enabling high quality voice services and improving resilience for people and companies around the globe.

The completion of the cable will provide additional protection and diversity to the world’s heavily-congested cable systems, delivering greater speeds and ensuring that companies and individuals suffer less from bottlenecks or disruption caused by cable breaks. Ooredoo Global Services will manage the landing stations on behalf of Ooredoo.
