A USD 1 billion consortium of specialist vendors assembled by Kuwaitbased Trade Links Middle East, Kalimat Telecom aims to enter every home, business, governmental and nongovernmental institution in Iraq and deliver five million CDMA lines of service by 2011. The consortium won the 10year wireless license from Iraqs Communications and Media Commission in September 2006.

Huawei, a global leader in telecom network solutions, will execute the project in four phases beginning in September 2007. The Chinese technology vendor will supply and provide deployment services for CDMA base stations and help create a topoftheline allIP network infrastructure.

This is the first time Iraq is witnessing a fullscale deployment of fixed wireless technology across the country, not just in urban clusters but in remote areas as well, Varghese said. Kalimat Telecom will be the first to serve not only the Iraqi household but also its up and coming small/medium enterprise market, he added.

Huawei will play a vital role in Kalimats planned rollout of the Iraqi wireless local loop (WLL) network, extend its next generation network to more than 5,000 towns and create the Middle Easts largest wireless telecom network, Varghese said. We are extremely proud of our association with Huawei, and are confident of delivering on our promises.

Our aim is to provide a nationwide stateoftheart network that can withstand the voice call and data transfer and media volumes predicted over the next 25 years, while remaining versatile and flexible enough to accommodate technologies that will rise during that time, Varghese said.
