Nawras, Oman - Full scope

Nawras significantly improves capacity on its network in Oman with Ericsson's GSM Packet Abis solution
Nawras Oman

To cope with growing capacity requirements and as part of a move towards all-IP, Nawras selects Ericsson to introduce IP in its backhaul and radio access network nodes.

Nawras was quickly running out of capacity in the metro area radio access network (RAN) backhaul. The decision was made to improve network efficiency by migrating to IP in the backhaul as well as in the RAN nodes. Ericsson was selected as a partner as it could provide an all-IP RAN, for both GSM and WCDMA and even LTE in the future.
