In a recent development Omantel, the largest telecom operator in Oman, has signed a partnership agreement with UAE’s du to provide its IPTV service platform in the Sultanate.
Through this partnership between the operators, Omantel will be able to launch IPTV service in Oman using du’s IPTV platform, thereby reducing their time-to-market and offering their customers a world-class IPTV experience. The partnership agreement provides an opportunity for du to expand the regional reach of its IPTV platform.
“We strive to further enhance our leadership of digitalisation in the Sultanate through different aspects. We are pleased to enter into this partnership agreement with du which will enable us to offer our customers state-of-the-art IPTV service. As the owner of Oman’s largest IP network, we believe IPTV provides a unique opportunity to offer our customers unmatched broadcast quality for on-demand entertainment services,” said Talal Said Marhoon Al Mamari, chief executive officer, Omantel.
This new partnership is demonstrative of the collaboration potential between regional operators that can reduce costs, and create a new order where operators do not have to build infrastructure from scratch, but can rely on partners to launch new services and sharing best practices & offerings.
