Qatar ranks among the top three countries in terms of the numbers of computer, Internet, wireline, wireless, and broadband. Combination of continued growth and increased competition creates opportunities and challenges for Qatar Tel (Qtel). But the increased competition also puts more pressure on Qtel to improve its business efficiency, which affects its overhead costs and thus its ability to price its services competitively yet profitably. To improve its business efficiency beyond what its basic GIS platform could provide, Qtel turned to Telcordia. Qtel staff use Network Engineer to plan, review, and approve construction work and Network Engineer also streamlined Qtel's ability to add and restore service quickly and cost-effectively.
