Communications and information technology regulatory authority (CITRA) ranks Ooredoo as the first telecom company to adopt the sixth version of the internet protocol (IPv6) in Kuwait. This is an important factor for the growth and continuity of internet and other related services provided by Ooredoo Kuwait for its customers.
Ooredoo has been exerting significant efforts to meet the increasing demand for the existing and emerging communication technologies. Hence, the company is adapting the most efficient strategies to adopt the IPv6, which is essential for technological progress and goes in line with the aspiration of "New Kuwait 2035" vision.
In the age of streaming data, IPv6 is an important factor in meeting the challenges associated with the fourth generation of Internet Protocol (IPv4), and the growing shortage that has a significant impact on the continuity of service delivery and access in a fast, efficient, and better quality for all its users.
Abdulaziz Yaqoub Al-Babtain, CEO of Ooredoo Kuwait, expressed his pride in this recognition, “Today we live in an era of artificial intelligence, development, growth, digitization and accelerating challenges in the technology sector, which requires us to keep pace with change and overcome all challenges that may hinder individuals from enjoying high-quality internet services. These challenges ignite us to continually improve our capabilities and services to provide our customers with the best services”.
From his side, Salim Al-Ozainah, chairman and CEO, CITRA, said, “This recognition affirms CITRA towards strengthening the telecom sector in line with the digital transformation, which is the cornerstone of the "New Kuwait 2035" vision, which aims to develop and promote investment in the communications and information technology sector, the use of modern and innovative technology, and the change of culture, which would raise the level of efficiency of services provided to citizens and residents alike, and lead the growth and prosperity of our beloved Kuwait”.
