The Lebanese PTT has recently:

  • replaced analogue equipment by state of the art digital technology
  • upgraded the national transmission network with new copper cables, fibre-optic cables and microwave systems
  • upgraded the international transmission network through new earth stations and fibre optic cables
  • migrated the existing signalling network based on R2 and CS for international networks to CCS7
  • implemented a GSM cellular network

The new telecom infrastructure is now able to handle up to 1.5 million potential subscribers.
