Ooredoo Signs MoU with Sparkle


Qatar-based Ooredoo Global Services (OGS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Telecom Italia subsidiary company Sparkle to work together toward new telecommunication services. The partnership will lead the two telecom sector companies to work together to strengthen services in the voice, data, cloud, multimedia, and digital spaces.

“Ooredoo Global Services continues to expand its ecosystem of global partners and enhance its international network to better support voice, capacity, and roaming traffic,” Khalid Al Mansouri, acting CEO of Ooredoo Global Services, said. “We’re very pleased to be working with Sparkle, who bring the world-class infrastructure and significant additional protection and diversity to our global network.”

OGS hopes to capitalize on Sparkle’s innovative IP-MPLS backbone and the tactical location of Sicily as a hub for telecommunications services, particularly for Africa, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean basin. The collaboration also allows OGS to make the most of its worldwide network and market the capital of Qatar, Doha, as the entryway for voice and data movement.

“We are very pleased we have signed this agreement with OGS and to be part of their strategy to introduce new international telecommunications services and to create synergies across the entire Ooredoo Group,” Alessandro Talotta, chairman and CEO of Sparkle, said. “This MoU strengthens our relationship with OGS and supports Sparkle’s leading position in the Middle East.”

OGS offers one of the leading Internet peering networks in the Middle East, North Africa, and Southeast Asia, in addition to a sole point of contact for worldwide wholesale carriers across the Ooredoo footprint. Ooredoo, the former Qtel covers Qatar and Myanmar with its telecom services.
