TAWAL, one of the leading telecom tower companies in the region, has signed a managed services agreement with Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC). Ericsson’s end-to-end managed services including Ericsson’s Energy Infrastructure Operations, energy solution, offers an innovative approach to operate energy infrastructure for mobile operators and tower companies.

This agreement is a major step forward by TAWAL to support Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 by establishing infrastructure for telecommunications operators and a stable platform to ensure connectivity for all residents.

Eng. Mohammed bin Abdulaziz Alhakbani, Chief Executive Officer of TAWAL says: “We are pleased to solidify our partnership with Ericsson through the new managed services agreement. A key aspect of the deal is Ericsson’s sustainable solutions which we decided to implement to further reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions in alignment with Vision 2030’s sustainable agenda.”

Under the terms of the contract with TAWAL, Ericsson will assume responsibility for managed services for TAWAL’s tower infrastructure and provide energy management solutions. Ericsson will ensure the highest levels of energy efficiency and availability – utilizing AI and automation and energy management platform. This will result in reduced CO2 emissions, improved network up-time and significant operational expenditure savings.
