Omantel bolsters cloud offerings with Google Cloud partnership

Omantel, the leading provider of integrated telecommunications services in the sultanate, announced on Wednesday its monumental collaboration with Google to introduce the first Google Distributed Cloud Edge solution in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region.

This partnership is set to revolutionise the digital landscape, bringing advanced cloud infrastructure and services to the region, Omantel said in a press statement.

Omantel stated that the implementation of the Google Distributed Cloud Edge hardware enables it to deliver unprecedented levels of performance, reliability, and efficiency to its customers. The hardware will be strategically placed at the edge of the network, allowing faster data processing and reduced latency.

‘This technology will unlock a new era of possibilities for businesses and individuals, providing seamless access to cutting-edge cloud services. This milestone collaboration will empower Omantel to stay ahead of evolving customer demands and deliver world-class services,’ the company said.

The introduction of the Google Distributed Cloud Edge hardware further solidifies Omantel as a key player in the telecommunications industry, proving its dedication to providing exceptional solutions and driving digital progress in the META region.

The strategic partnership between Omantel and Google, signed in May 2023, centers on the implementation of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) for prediction models, revenue maximisation, network optimization, and API monetisation aimed at serving enterprise businesses.

“This landmark partnership smartly integrates Google Cloud’s advanced AI/ML technologies into Omantel’s prediction models, enabling us to optimize our predictive analytics to identify market trends, customer behaviors, and revenue opportunities,” said Talal Said al Mamari, Chief Executive Officer of Omantel.

“This cutting-edge application encourages better decision-making, enhanced customer satisfaction, and increased revenue growth. Additionally, the API monetisation project has been instrumental in elevating Omantel’s service offerings to enterprise businesses. By leveraging Google Cloud’s expertise in API management and monetisation strategies, Omantel is devising innovative solutions to cater to the evolving needs of its enterprise customers,” he said.

According to Mamari, the establishment of Google Distributed Cloud Edge, an advanced platform that provides seamless and secure API services, will position Omantel as a pioneer in the region, and will further strengthen its position as a strategic partner for enterprises seeking seamless connectivity and digital solutions.

Omantel is committed to driving digitisation, fostering technological advancements, and transforming the telecommunications landscape in Oman. The company’s partnership with Google showcases the power of collaboration, innovation, and agility in creating sustainable and mutually beneficial business opportunities.

By leveraging each other’s strengths, resources, and expertise, Omantel and Google Cloud aim to unlock new potential in the telecommunications industry and lead the way in digital transformation.

Google Cloud has already won four strategic projects in the realm of digital/telecoms for Omantel.

For Omantel, the partnership helps streamline its API development, onboard new partners quickly, enhance their omnichannel strategy, and start API monetisation. It also allows Omantel to use data and analytics via Google Cloud’s Data Platform to develop customer and marketing analytics for better visibility.

Omantel is also collaborating with Google Cloud to create a cloud space for startups and Digital Natives in Oman to utilise Google Cloud technologies to enhance their development and offerings.
