Inclarity’s International Gateway will carry inbound and outbound international traffic for the region. Inclarity was selected due to its ability to connect remote destinations to the rest of the world via a dedicated satellite segment and deliver under tight schedules. Since winning the contract, only a few weeks ago, Inclarity’s solution has already been designed, planned and implemented.
Mr. Shabi Lewis, COO of Inclarity, said: “Inclarity’s International Gateway will connect Mosul’s population of over four million people to the rest of the world. This represents a significant milestone in the Telecommunication history of Iraq, as Mosul is the largest city with licensed international mobile communications.”
Inclarity’s International Gateway connects remote destinations to the world over a dedicated satellite space segment back to Inclarity’s international, Tier 1, Telco Grade switching network. The satellite link is ideal for places like Mosul, where terrestrial links do not exist and microwave communications are not possible, due to surrounding mountainous terrain. This exceptionally reliable gateway ensures optimum performance while maintaining low operational costs and capital expenditure, critical to a developing region. As such, it provides high quality, cost-effective international mobile calls.
Inclarity is collaborating with its longstanding partner Asia Cell, one of the three service providers with a GSM licence in Iraq – and the only provider to already have mobile subscribers using its service. Over the past five years the subscriber base has expanded from just a few thousand to well over 70,000 subscribers in Sulaymaniyah and recently in Kirkuk, with the scalability of Inclarity’s International Gateway enabling seamless support of this growth. It is anticipated that within a year Asia Cell will be awarded a GSM license covering the whole of Iraq, with Inclarity’s International Gateways being deployed across the country.
Ziad Shatara, CEO of Asia Cell, said: “By working with our longstanding partner, Inclarity, we are confident that we will be able to meet the Coalition Provisional Authority’s challenging deadlines to bring Iraq’s population to mobile connectivity. The technical excellence, reliability and expert support of the Inclarity team have served us well over the years, and will continue to do so as we expand.”
