The Jordan Petroleum Refinery Company was established by the Ministry of National Economy in 1952, which recognized the potential of petroleum refining as a vital source of energy to most economic sectors and activities, and its potential as a source of revenue for the Kingdom.

JPRC is the sole provider of all petroleum products for the local market. Its establishment instigated the development of many related fields; mainly electricity, transport, construction, and industrial sectors. And resulted in the cessation of the complete dependence on importing costly petroleum products from abroad, this has positively contributed to the national economy through enhancing foreign currency reserves, providing job opportunities to thousands of Jordanians, and opening the door to new industries. JPRC also serves as a source of skilled labor and well trained personnel for the neighboring Arab refineries.

Throughout their continuous development process, JPRC has chosen UNITEL as their communication system solutions supplier and service provider. This has involved the deployment of MD110 switches in both their Amman and Zarka sites. Together with a microwave link that connects the two sites, thus establishing a private network for voice and data services, the whole network is comprised of Ericsson systems as illustrated below in Figure(1).

The Jordan Phosphate Mining Company was established in March 1949 to exploit phosphate deposits in Jordan, and currently operates three mines in Jordan producing phosphate rock, with a fourth mine at Al-Ruseifa having ceased production in 1985, and a fertilizer and chemicals plant at Aqaba which produces various phosphate products.

JPMC is the sole entity currently operating under license to mine and produce phosphate rock in Jordan. In the year ended 31 December 2005, Jordan was the sixth largest phosphate rock producer in the world, the second largest exporter of phosphate rock in the world and the largest overall exporter in terms of revenue in the Jordanian economy. JPMC is the largest mining and industrial employer in Jordan.

UNITEL has provided JPMC with a solution that links their widely spread sites in the southern part of the kingdom with the main offices in Amman using cutting edge Access Network technologies (Microwave, DSL, optical fiber, etc.) which has enabled JPMC to form their own voice and data network. As shown below.

Jordan set out preparations to establish the Central Bank of Jordan in the late 1950s. The Law of the CBJ was enacted in 1959. Thereafter, its operational procedures were commenced on the first day of October 1964.

The CBJ succeeded the Jordan Currency Board which had been established in 1950. The capital of the CBJ, which is totally owned by the government, was increased gradually, from one million to 18 million Jordanian Dinars.

CBJ chose the solution recommended by UNITEL as a switch to operate in a rather sensitive nature of work environment that does not tolerate any malfunctions, the distributed control architecture of MD110 switch which enables all parts of the switch to function autonomously has satisfied the Central Bank’s demand of a minimum down time operation. As shown in Figure (3).


In August 2000, the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority was passed by the Jordanian Parliament. The law established the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA) as the statutory institution empowered with regulatory, administrative, fiscal and economic responsibilities within The Aqaba Special Economic Zone.

The Aqaba Special Economic Zone (ASEZ) is a private sector-driven development initiative that maximizes private sector participation in a duty free, tax-advantaged and flexible regulatory operations environment.

ASEZA communication network is one of the largest communication networks that UNITEL is implementing. When completed, ASEZA switches will form a full transparent network that will work as a single Crystal serving 19 of their sites as shown in Figure (4).

The Irbid District Electricity Company (IDECO) was established in 1957, and has the exclusive right to generate, transmits, distribute, and supply electricity in the northern region of Jordan, which includes Irbid, Jarash, Ajloun, and parts of Balqaa district.

The real challenge for UNITEL to provide a hybrid solution to satisfy all IDECO demands of a unified switching network (despite the lack of available traditional physical media). UNITEL met the challenge by resorting to IP Trunking and employing the advanced VoIP Technology which made the switches to work in a single VPN i.e IP environment. As shown in the figure below.

The Jordanian Electric Power Company (JEPCO) is responsible for distributing electrical energy in the central region of Jordan covering about (66%) of the total number of consumers in the country in an area of approximately (4000) km2.

The company serves more than (600000) consumers through five main districts, four of which cover Amman, Salt, and Madaba, while the fifth covers the area of Zerqa.

The Telecommunication solution provided by UNITEL to JEPCO has been a good example of the transparency required among all telecom system constituents employing to a great extent the open system architecture by which all officials (regardless of their office locations) are able to make free internal calls with their colleagues hundreds of kilometers away. As shown below.

In 2007, further strengthening the partnership between the two companies, UNITEL was granted the contract to replace JEPCO’s existing UHF analogue transmission network with an Ericsson Mini-Link E radio equipment along with Bayly multiplexing systems and PowerOne power supply systems, the scope of the project includes the survey, design, installation, testing, and commissioning of the network consisting of six hops. The project is currently in its final stages.

The Jordan University of Science and Technology was established in 1986 as a national institute for higher learning, and since its foundation the University has witnessed a rapid expansion: for the number of faculties rose from the five faculties to become eleven including (55) academic departments offering a large number of both undergraduate and graduate programs.

The number of students rose from (2300) students in the academic year 86/87 to more than (16500) students in 2004/2005, instructed by (630) faculty members compared with (110) in the year when the University was founded. The University has become a "home away from home" for students from (41) foreign and Arab countries, all of which contribute to the varied cultural life on the University.

The JUST MD110 system was installed by UNITEL in 1986 and has continuously proven that the MD110 is a system of the future with its system upgradeability feature; offering the chance to implement many features and technologies that were first introduced in the late nineties, unlike other switching systems which had to be replaced in order to take advantage of such technologies. The MD110 system has been able to adapt to the exceptional growth of JUST. As shown in Figure (7) below.

The Jordan University Hospital and The Faculty of Medicine are located at the south of the University of Jordan campus. This complex of patients care, education, and research facilities has achieved national renown for its health care programs and medical education. Since its doors opened in 1973, Jordan University Hospital has served more than a quarter of a million people each year and provided a great academic environment for the University’s School of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Nursing. At present, JUH is (78700) sq m and is located in Four premises; Inpatients wards, Out patients clinics, Supplies Department and Parking.

Due to the sensitive nature of a hospital’s work, The Jordan University Hospital required a reliable switching system in order to support its daily operations. An Ericsson MD110 was installed by UNITEL in 1996 to operate in this rather critical environment and, along with the company’s technical support activities has proven to be both a reliable and an effective solution to the hospital’s needs.


The University of Jordan was established in 1962,
and is a comprehensive teaching, research, and community-service institution. The University of Jordan enables its students to choose from a wide range of programs -more than 3500 different courses are offered by some 18 faculties.

UNITEL has been awarded the tender to supply the tender to supply the university with an MD110 Switching system to serve more than 5000 subscribers both inside the University campus as well as in remote sites, this makes another major success story for UNITEL as the University found the offered telecommunications solution a fulfillment of all requirements of an up to date system reflecting the university’s scientific image and a foresight of the future


Xpress Telecommunications launched its services in June 2004 in the Jordanian telecommunications market as the latest wireless and mobile network operator, offering a new form of telecommunications solutions based on the Integrated Digital Enhanced Network (iDEN) technology. XPress is the first Arab company in the Middle East to introduce this technology, which combines the abilities of ordinary mobile phones with the instantaneous Direct Connect (walkie-talkie) service.

UNITEL is proud of being the company responsible for the design and installation of the entire Xpress Telecom backbone system which comprises of tens of links of Microwave Transmission system throughout the country, a call centre, and switching and access network systems. Our links and cooperation with Xpress are well established to support, upgrade, and expand their networking systems
