December 22, 2010

NEC Unified Solutions has found new partners to sell products in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The company has named Mohammed A. Issa Est as its channel business partner to cover the central and northern provinces of Saudi Arabia. It is a group company of Setra Group.

In addition, Mansour Al Mosaid was named to cover the southern and western provinces. It is a group company of MM Group.

The two new channel partners replace Fakhry Telecom, which is now focused on business that is not telecommunications-related, according to a NEC Unified Solutions statement.

"We are pleased to appoint Setra Group and MM Group as our partners in Saudi Arabia,” Frits Neyndorff, vice president for Middle-East and Africa operations of NEC Unified Solutions, said in a company statement. He adds that the two companies have “an established reputation in the telecommunications field and will provide our customers with the expected and committed level of local support.”

Neyndorff said is important to the company that its customers are able to have “continuity” for “support and service."

Mohammed A. Issa Est and Mansour Al Mosaid will provide support to NEC's current Sopho iS3000 base in Saudi Arabia, the company said.

The two companies will also introduce and support a range of other solutions, including the Univerge SV8000 Series servers, the company adds.

The Univerge SV8000 series features next-generation solutions that are based on open standards.

The company said businesses will earn more money, reduce costs, improve efficiency, and allow for more responsiveness to customers using the servers and apps for mobility, Unified Communications and management.

Setra's Mohammed A. Issa Est. is headquartered in Riyadh and Al Khobar. Mansour Al Mosaid’s offices are in Jeddah.

In other recent news from Saudi Arabia, unified communications reports that Juniper Networks is enabling Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) to build a network and data center infrastructure. It will have switching, routing and security solutions from Juniper, says unified communications.
