Zain briefs students on mobile network
Manama, January 9, 2010
Zain Bahrain, a leading telecom services provider in Bahrain, recently gave an overview of its mobile network structure to 10 engineering students from the University of Bahrain.
The students, who were on an educational visit to the company’s mobile switching center, were also briefed regarding the company’s ongoing ambitious network upgrade to the region’s first Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology.
This LTE upgrade will enable Zain Bahrain customers to enjoy faster data downloads and enhanced customer experience, thanks to its transition to an all-IP, flat network through the introduction of Internet high speed packet access (I-HSPA) as a first stage, and then the Middle East Region’s first LTE technology, said a statement.
The new technology is expected to vastly boost Zain’s state-of-the-art services through improved voice, data and multimedia services.
“Zain Bahrain has a very active programme of engaging youth in projects that will enhance knowledge and allow them to understand the workplace of the future,” said Samya Hussein, corporate communications manager.
“Besides regular visits by university students, we also have a full-fledged work program called Future University Network (F.U.N.) where young people work with Zain mentors at Zain offices to understand and handle real-life workplace challenges,” Hussein added. – TradeArabia News Service
