TORONTO, February 25, 2021 – Mobily, a tier one telecom and one of the most advanced operators in the Middle East, has gone live with the Optiva payment solution on Mobily private cloud. Given Mobily’s large customer base, speed, agility and digital-first are priorities for its success.


Mobily is recognized by the telecom industry as one of the most innovative and advanced operators in the region. It was the first operator worldwide to launch the 4G (TD-LTE) services commercially. With its move to cloud, Mobily continues its trajectory of innovation in the telecommunications sector.
