ip.access to supply small cell technology to Zain Bahrain

ip.access announced that Middle East operator Zain Bahrain will be deploying its nano3G femtocells and picocells, which will be supplied and installed by E-Pay International.  The company made the announcement on Monday at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.


The contract follows hard on the heels of ip.access confirming last month that it had formed a partnership with E-Pay International to specify, supply and install the market-leading range of ip.access small cell solutions to operator customers in the Middle East.


In Bahrain, E-Pay International will be deploying ip.access' 2G and 3G small cells both for public access and also private business and residential users. The small cell deployments will increase network capacity in busy locations and improve private and public network access both indoors and in hard to reach locations.<?xml:namespace prefix = o />


“This is a very rapid vindication of our decision to partner with E-Pay International in the Middle East and we are delighted with the way our relationship is progressing," says Simon Brown, ip.access (Cambridge, UK) CEO.


“We foresee strong demand for small cells solutions in the region – helping operators to deliver voice and data coverage and capacity both in hard to reach and high traffic areas. This agreement will help Zain and its customers get the most from their mobile phones,” said Mohammed Al-Barrak, CEO of E-Pay International.
