28 May 2014

United Arab Emirates telecoms operator Du has announced the signing of an agreement with Nokia to deploy the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) on its network later this year. As a result of the deployment, Du’s customers will experience enhanced services such as HD voice, HD video, file sharing and instant messaging. ‘Providing the highest level of customer experience is our priority, as we constantly seek to improve upon our existing quality of services that would lead to a superior customer experience,’ commented Saleem Al Balooshi, Du’s executive vice president of Network Development and Operation, adding: ‘By working with Nokia to deploy IMS, we are increasing the sustainability of our network while also enhancing our connectivity capabilities, to better support the UAE leadership’s Smart City and Smart Government initiatives.’ The addition of IMS will ensure scalability and flexibility for Du’s voice and multimedia services through an IP-based platform, for multiscreen delivery capability across device types, and fixed and mobile access.
