Sep 21, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Allied Telesis, a provider of secure IP/Ethernet network solutions and converged triple-play networks, has forged a new partnership with Trans Telecoms in a move to support Saudi Arabia's developing telecommunications industry.
According to Allied Telesis and Trans Telecoms, the partnership follows recent government announcements that the country's ICT sector is set to attract more than SAR 50 billion worth of investments by 2015.
Trans Telecoms will act as lead system integrator of Allied Telesis IP/Ethernet network solutions within the telecommunications, healthcare, education and construction industries and will specialise in offering high reliability network solutions tailored to the needs of the Saudi Arabian and Gulf markets. The new alliance also supports the government's move to adopt and implement green technologies, complementing the country's commitment to protect the global environment and promote conservation of biodiversity.
"Saudi Arabia's telecommunications segment is currently showing great potential following the government's move to invest heavily in improving infrastructure to bring affordable internet connectivity to everyone," said Saeed al Srari, CEO of Trans Telecoms.
Trans Telecoms' new partnership with Allied Telesis gives it the ability of installing and managing network solutions for businesses and telecommunications service providers in Saudi Arabia. The two businesses will work closely to provide high-specification telecom solutions using their combined technical expertise, knowledge of the local market and professionalism.
Allied Telesis said its network solutions portfolio includes media gateways that allow voice, video and data services to be delivered to the home and business. The company's chassis-based platforms will provide network operators and service providers with significant infrastructure advantages such as integrated green energy features and advanced redundancy to increase network reliability and up-time. Trans Telecom also expects that its alliance with Allied Telesis will help Saudi Arabia telecom operators address the 'Last Mile' challenge by offering alternatives to the more traditional network suppliers.
The agreement between the two companies will initially cover Saudi Arabia with the possibility of developing specialized services for other countries across the region in the long term. Under the terms of the partnership, Allied Telesis will provide Trans Telecoms with key training, financial, marketing and logistical support to implement its broad range of solutions across various Fixed and Mobile Telecom providers, ISP's, enterprises and government entities.
