Etisalat to launch FTTH in Abu Dhabi in Q3

Emirates Business 24/7 - 19 April, 2009

Etisalat announced it's racing against time to complete the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network in Abu Dhabi during the third quarter of this year to make the emirate the world's first city to have such a network.

"We completed 70 per cent of the network in Abu Dhabi city. Within a few months the whole network will be complete," Ahmed Darwish, General Manager at Tamdeed Projects, one of etisalat Services Holding's subsidiaries responsible for the network's implementation in Abu Dhabi, told Emirates Business.

He added Abu Dhabi is included in the first phase of the fibre-optic network, which will be executed throughout the country subsequently. More than 2,000 technicians are working day and night to complete the network at the UAE level. Some 50 per cent of the network is complete in Dubai, while the network's installation is still in its first phase in the Northern Emirates.

Tamdeed finished the installation of 300,000 out of total 1.4 million optic fibre-optic devices in the UAE. The whole network in the UAE is projected to be complete in 2011, when the UAE will become the region's first country to have an integral fibre-optic network.

Tamdeed started the network installation in Abu Dhabi in 2007. Abu Dhabi was selected first because it is the capital of the UAE and because it is easy to install the network as the majority of the buildings are new in the capital.

"Tamdeed's technicians installed the fibre-optic network instead of the old copper devices, which are linked with internet and land line, in majority of homes and shops in Abu Dhabi. The fibre-optic cable is capable of transferring huge data, pictures and information. The cable also has few maintenance problems; its virtual age is longer and cost lower. In future, the cable will provide several services, including land line, internet and satellite channels, through one wire. Clients will get just one monthly bill for all the services they subscribe to.

"Initially, majority of people expected etisalat to charge for the network's installation. However, they are now reassured that the network is installed free, and are wholeheartedly co-operating with Tabreed," he said.

Meanwhile, etisalat Academy and Tamdeed projects are looking to train and recruit 60 FTTH technicians. Authorities are looking for candidates who have work experience as technicians, installers and cable jointers and who wish to be trained as FTTH technicians. Applicants who successfully complete the training programme will be offered a one-year contract with Tamdeed, working on the installation of fibre-optic networks across the UAE.

"The future of telecommunications is being driven by bandwidth-hungry services such as video and business applications. This places increasing stress on the communications infrastructure and drives the need for fibre optic cables. The knowledge that we will impart to these 60 candidates will last them for many years to come, guaranteeing a better life for their families today and in the future," said Darwish.

The training programme will last seven days and consists of continual assessment of both theoretical and practical work, which will culminate in an exam. The training will take place at the etisalat Academy in Dubai.

The course is subsidised and approximately 60 per cent of the cost will be covered by Tamdeed Projects. The applicant will have to contribute Dh3,900 towards the training, which will be returned to them after completing one year of service with Tamdeed.

Fibre optics unit will bid on overseas projects

The Etisalat subsidiary that is rolling out the Middle East's first national fibre-optic internet system will use the experience to bid for similar contracts overseas.

Tamdeed, a unit of Etisalat's services division, is responsible for bringing the system into every home and workplace in the country, all the way from digging and laying cables to rewiring villas, offices and apartment buildings.

"For now, we're focused on the UAE, but we will capitalise on this experience to go outside, and also to serve Etisalat International whenever they need us, said Ahmed Darwish, the general manager of Tamdeed.

"Most countries in the GCC are going for an FTTH system, but Etisalat is far ahead, he said. "Abu Dhabi will be the first capital in the world, by the third quarter of this year, to completely migrate to FTTH.

A team of more than 2,000 technicians are working seven days a week installing the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network, in one of the country's most ambitious infrastructure modernisation projects. The network, planned to reach every home in the country by 2011, already connects to 300,000 homes and offices.

Fibre-optic cables transmit information as beams of light, offering an almost unlimited capacity for data transmission, with the potential for internet speeds up to 100 times faster than systems based on copper wire.

The project is part of Etisalat's role as an agent for national development, and the company does not consider notions of cost versus benefit when evaluating whether to extend optic fibre to remote or difficult-to-reach areas.

"Anywhere in the UAE served by Etisalat, by 2011 we will reach all of them, Mr Darwish said. "It is part of our commitment to the country – we should serve everywhere, without looking to the economics of it.

Homes connected to the network will be able to access increasingly fast internet services, alongside high-definition television and standard telephone service. While fibre has a theoretical transmission speed of up to one terabyte (1,000 gigabytes) per second, actual download speeds will be limited by the bandwidth and capacity of Etisalat's international connections.

"Within the country, there is no limit, Mr Darwish said, "but most content is not in the UAE. I can guarantee your speed in the UAE, but if you are downloading from the US or Europe, you will also be dependent on the international connections.

Etisalat offers a 16 megabyte-per-second internet connection to homes already reached by the FTTH system, and is expected to introduce faster offerings, as well as packages incorporating digital television, as the network expands. The company says it will soon launch a video-on-demand service over the network, letting viewers choose from thousands of films to be streamed live to their television sets.  The National
