CommuniGate Systems Announces Partnership with GO Telecom


January 28, 2011

CommuniGate Systems, a developer of carrier-grade unified communications software, announced a new partnership with GO Telecom (Ethihad Atheeb), the first cloud telecom operator in the Middle East.

The partnership will deliver telecommunications service GO Terhal powered by CommuniGate Systems Pronto! and CommuniGate Pro technology to the Saudi telecom market. GO Terhal subscribers can access their files, and make free and low-cost phone calls in super-clear HD Voice from any Web-enabled compute using the Pronto! UC app.

Pronto! is the only zero-install unified communications desktop client that works on any desktop or laptop computer. The app is now available with modular interfaces, a Skype-like Communicator mode and new HD Voice enabled versions for the desktop Adobe AIR environment that delivers a much improved experience with greater flexibility and customization.

CommuniGate Pro is a compact and powerful UC server designed for high performance at low cost. It has a complete feature set in a single carrier-grade server designed for ultimate reliability in single domain or massive multi-tenant environments.

The technology from CommuniGate is supposed to enable GO Terhal subscribers to stay connected anywhere, from any device via one number.

Zaid Al-Shabanat, Chief Executive Officer of GO Telecom asserted that CommuniGate Systems technology and expertise have been crucial in delivering this innovation in telecommunications to the market. With their support and the hard work of young Saudi Cadres, GO has been able to provide cutting-edge HD Voice services and create the first cloud communications solution in the region tailored to meet the needs of the Saudi market.

Carlo Petrolo, CommuniGate Systems director of Middle East and Africa said, “GO Telecom gave us an exciting challenge with GO Terhal. Partnering with them to bring their vision to life has been rewarding, and we believe Go Terhal will revolutionize communications for Saudi citizens all over the world.”
