Bahrain’s National Broadband Network (BNET) has opened a Network Intelligence Centre of Excellence (NICE) to deliver secure, reliable and stable network in the Kingdom. Launched in October 2019, BNET is responsible for providing broadband network services across Bahrain.
BNET said NICE has been developed to provide 24/7 proactive monitoring and management of Bahrain’s smart digital telecommunication infrastructure networks by addressing any issues in real-time.
Among the functions covered by NICE are ‘Fault Management’, to enable the timely resolution of network faults and interruptions, and ‘Performance Management’, to predict and prevent service interruptions through the proactive network monitoring which will ensure consistency in the performance level.
BNET CEO Mohamed Bubashait said, “We aim to ensure that Bahrain’s Licensed Operators have access to seamless and efficient support for all their needs around the clock so that they can deliver the best quality of services to benefit the end-users, Bahrain’s consumer and business customers across the Kingdom.
Furthermore, we are focusing on adopting modern, world-class solutions to meet international standards.”
BNET Acting Chief Technical Officer Mohamed Alkaabi said the criticality of BNET’s network services and operations requires a world-class network operation monitoring centre, and the new NICE operation perfectly meets this requirement.
As part of Bahrain’s fifth National Telecommunication Plan, BNET provides next-generation wholesale fibre broadband connectivity to all licensed telecom operators in Bahrain.
It also provides broadband services to large enterprise customers in the Kingdom.
