  4. 4. 4 Qatar National Vision 2030 Qatar 2030 Development Pillars Human Development Social Development Economic Development Environmental Development ICT Contribution to Achieve Qatar National Vision 2030 ▪ Improves population access to healthcare services ▪ Enhances people’s skills and capabilities ▪ Helps all people of Qatar participate in and contribute to a knowledge-based society ▪ Creates new business models for sustainable development ▪ Stimulates innovation and entrepreneurship ▪ Encourages use of environmentally sound technologies and raises public awareness Broadband MEA 2013
  5. 5. 5 Qnbn - A Government Initiative  Qnbn leases passive fiber infrastructure to telecom services  Appropriate national wholesale prices are set to:  Ensure low retail rates across Qatar  Give margin to operators  Make Qnbn self-sufficient in the long-run  95% FTTH coverage nationwide using a combination of P2P and GPON technologies  Provide wholesale access and core fiber across Qatar  Rollout network in greenfield areas and lease existing ducts wherever available  Qatari government owns 100% of Qnbn  Sufficient funding from the Government  100+ FTEs once fully operational Business Model Network Roll-out Company Set-up Broadband MEA 2013
  6. 6. 6 The Five Imperatives High-speed Nationwide Affordable Open Rapidly Deployed  Infrastructure that supports 100+ Mpbs and beyond for in-country active connections  Available nationwide to achieve greater social inclusion  Affordable services to all segments of society and offers competitive retail and wholesale prices  Provide infrastructure access to operators in a fair and equal manner  Achieve maximum coverage by 2015, driving national competitiveness and acting as catalyst for the broader economy Broadband MEA 2013
  7. 7. Passive Layer 7 The Model Active Layer Services & Applications ▪ Retail operators compete based on separate services and applications ▪ Qnbn focuses on passive deployment only to save operators from investing in CAPEX and future upgrades ▪ Focus on passive removes possibility to create a monopoly in retail services Broadband MEA 2013 ▪ Operators compete based on active infrastructure to gain flexibility with technology choice
  8. 8. 8 The Approach Existing areas with good infrastructure Existing areas requiring upgrade Green-field areas ▪ Qnbn will lease ducts access and take responsibility for rolling out and maintaining fiber infrastructure ▪ Fiber access is then leased on a wholesale basis ▪ Qnbn will roll out infrastructure in collaboration with government entities ▪ Qnbn will invest in new or additional fiber to upgrade areas where fiber does not meet required standards ▪ Qnbn will invest and roll out fiber infrastructure, ensuring new developments are fiber-ready when complete Broadband MEA 2013
  9. 9. 9 The Plan Building a multi operator passive fiber network to connect 250K residential units and 35K enterprises with an estimated investment of USD500m over the coming 3 years 2013 2014 2015 Central Offices Outside Plant In-Building Cabling 9 Central Offices & 5 RLUs 120K GPON Connections 20K Multi Dwelling Units Connections 10 Central Offices 85K GPON Connections 50K Multi Dwelling Units Connections 6 Central Offices 80K GPON Connections 50K Multi Dwelling Units Connections Broadband MEA 2013
