Ooredoo Renews Support for Global Media Audience via Extension of Partnership with Al Jazeera Media Network
Ooredoo – Qatar’s leading provider of ICT services – has announced the extension of a partnership with renowned media organisation Al Jazeera Media Network (AJMN).
The latest agreement was signed during a visit to Al Jazeera’s headquarters by Ooredoo’s new Chief Executive Officer, Sheikh Ali Bin Jabor Al Thani, on 16 February 2023.
During the visit, Sheikh Ali met with Al Jazeera’s Dr. Mostefa Souag – Acting Director General – and Ahmad Al Fahad, Executive Director of Technology and Operations, to sign a two-year extension to the existing partnership, that will see the ICT leader continue to act as the preferred managed services provider to the Al Jazeera Global Media Cloud (AGMC). The ICT leader has already provided complex services to AJMN and AGMC on a global scale since 2014.
Sheikh Ali extended his thanks to Al Jazeera for their continued trust in Ooredoo, and expressed his confidence that the two entities will continue to enjoy a long and mutually beneficial relationship. For his part, Dr. Mustafa Souag welcomed the Ooredoo delegation, expressing his appreciation for the services provided to the network.
Sheikh Ali Bin Jabor Al Thani, CEO at Ooredoo, said: “We are proud to be a trusted partner of AGMC and AJMN, and to extend our working relationship with such a well-respected international media network. We take pride in delivering superior products and services as part of our mission to upgrade our customers’ worlds, and look forward to continuing to explore ways in which we can, in turn, help AJMN enhance their offering to the media industry.”
AGMC continues to support Al Jazeera’s broadcasting, spanning six continents with its delivery of real-time news, documentaries and digital media content.
Ahmad Al Fahad, Executive Director of Technology and Operations Division at Al Jazeera Media Network, said: “We are excited to continue working with Ooredoo and using its technologies and services, and we hope that this agreement will enable us to explore new opportunities in the future.”
Sheikh Ali’s visit to Al Jazeera was the first in a series of visits designed to reinforce Ooredoo’s strong position as a leader in the ICT domain, and highlight its provision of next-generation technology – in the form of unique products and services – to strategic customers.
