Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has announced the start of the construction of the largest network operations centre in MENA.

The project aims to enhance the company’s strategy for digital transformation, enabling digital services and enriching the experience of customers.

The centre, which will be located at the King Abdulaziz Telecom Complex in Al-Mursalat district in Riyadh, is expected to be completed in 2019.

It includes smart control and operation methods for all network components, information systems and modern data centres established by the company in different regions.

Dr. Khaled Biyari, STC Group CEO, said: “The new national network control centre is an important investment in the future of technology in our country.

“STC has prepared itself in the best way to serve the company’s customers from corporate and individuals.”

In October STC signed a contract with Al Latifia Trading and Contracting Company to establish a four-storey control centre, equipped with the latest IT and high-resolution digital display systems to enhance operational standards.

The centre is expected to increase the efficiency of customer and business services and enhance the company’s position as a regional provider of Internet, data and communications services.
