Kuwait's Al Alamiah Computer Systems Co. brings videoconferencing technologies to Iraq
Al Alamiah Computer Systems Co. revealed that it is now possible for all large organizations in Iraq to benefit from videoconferencing technologies and video telecommunications to link-up with their branches and centers anywhere in the world. This includes government organizations, oil companies and any large establishment whose business is distributed throughout Iraq.
“The infrastructure currently available in Iraq, as well as the relatively wide geographical expanse of this country, will contribute to the spreading of this technology throughout Iraq,” commented Abdulaziz Al Gharabally, Sales & Marketing Director, Al Alamiah Group of Companies as he made this announcement.
This announcement comes as a result of the agreement between Al Alamiah Computer Systems Co., Kuwait, the leading software and integrated solutions provider, and TANDBERG, the cutting-edge Norwegian company specializing in videoconferencing technologies and equipment. The agreement involves widening the scope of the joint business collaboration between the two companies to include Iraq.
“We are keen on entering Iraq which promises to be a good market for our products,” commented Lars Rønning, Area Manager Middle East & Africa, TANDBERG, he added, “and because we believe in the importance of respecting the cultural identity of the Iraqi people, we have found in Al Alamiah a reliable strategic partner that is fully aware of the special requirements of the Iraqi markets.”
Notably, TANDBERG (www.tandberg.net) and Al Alamiah Group of Companies (www.alalamiah.com) have been collaborating for over three years for the supply of specialized videoconferencing solutions which meet the practical and specific demands of various government institutions, oil companies using this technology to link-up with oil rigs and affiliated establishments, the banking and financial sector, educational institutes and universities, medical organization and other establishments that have branches and businesses distributed over several locations or countries.
The two companies have succeeded in installing these solutions at many ministries and oil companies within the region, mainly because videoconferencing, which uses different types of networks including Virtual Private Network (VPN), offers a fast and effective means of communicating and ensures that meetings and conferences are highly dynamic and interactive.
“TANDBERG systems offer the ideal method of conjuring the most advanced technologies to serve the business world. Video communications of this kind are not limited to linking with branches and centers, but extends to connecting with numerous other establishments in the world that also have this technology,” Al Gharabally added.(menareport.com)
