Ericsson has reiterated the vast, untapped potential of Iraq’s telecommunication market.
Speaking at the sixth Iraq Telecom 2011, Ericsson’s Executive Vice President for Region Middle East, Tunç Yorulmaz highlighted how the Iraqi market is now ready to move towards implementing Mobile Broadband considering its saturated voice market, increasing GDP per capita and increasing internet usage rates.
During the event, Yorulmaz also reiterated that this move would contribute to Ericsson’s plans for a Networked Society that has already started in the Middle East, anticipating that more than 50 billion devices will be connected by 2020 globally.
The conference took place from 25 – 27th October in Istanbul, Turkey, and gathered the industry’s most influential decision-makers and senior telecom experts as well as regional and international speakers.
As a Silver sponsor, Ericsson leveraged this opportunity to highlight that the new technology implementations in Iraq can fuel the growth of the telecommunication market, and positively impact private and public businesses and government sectors, in addition to enhancing the end users’ experience.
“With the connected world that we currently live in, consumers are continuously in need of enhanced services and experiences and that’s exactly what Ericsson is constantly striving to achieve. With our goal to build a Networked Society, Ericsson is always on the lookout for new partnerships to work hand-in-hand with their customers to provide an enhanced end user experience,” said Yorulmaz.
