Nokia Siemens Networks is set to provide leading mobile infrastructure technology across the operations of The Qtel Group, which is based in Qatar. Included in this infrastructure is the deployment of its market-leading energy-efficient Flexi base stations and other innovative network systems and services. Dr. Nasser Marafih, chief executive officer of The Qtel Group, said: “This is a partnership for the future, which will ensure the highest quality of network development supporting our strategy for business growth. The Qtel Group is able to deliver world-class services to our customers because of the strong foundations of our network infrastructure, and the support of Nokia Siemens Networks will provide essential resources as we continue to enhance our operations.” 
Nokia Siemens Networks will enable The Qtel Group to increase network capacity and coverage and enhance the quality of experience delivered to its customers.
