Nawras has successfully installed a fibre optic connectivity solution at the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech) to provide voice and high speed internet across the entire new campus in Halban.
The new voice installation uses SIP Trunk (Session Initiation Protocol). This service is uniquely offered by Nawras in Oman and gives customers access to significantly more voice channels than currently available through legacy systems. In addition, it provides capacity for growth to match future expansion. The use of a Nawras Internet Enterprise (NIE) gives an uninterrupted and secured internet connection to handle data requirements.
Vikash Vardhan Sharma, Key Account Manager at Nawras Business, said, “This was an exciting project for Nawras that required innovative solutions for the new university campus as it is situated two kilometres across rough terrain from the nearest fibre ring. We installed a dedicated connection from the ring to the university which will ensure fast and uninterrupted internet access as well as accommodate unlimited additional lines. This future proofs the campus, as a vital part of the university’s communications network.”
Jiji Tom Verghese, Head of IT department at GUtech, said, “We are incredibly excited to have Nawras as our communications provider. The product designed and delivered will benefit both existing and future students as we continue to grow as a university with a diverse range of courses to meet current trends and interests in the academic realm.”
GUtech offers a range of post-secondary courses. The new fibre optic connection will serve over 800 students and faculty across the campus by delivering the latest technology to meet their growing communications requirements.
Nawras has been working closely with various educational institutions to support their communication needs through customised services and pricing solutions. The company’s recent solution to the Ministry of Education enabled a faster access to their central web portal. This gives parents and students a better web browsing and data connectivity experience while enhancing study support by connecting over a hundred local schools through its internet server.
Nawras, a Qtel Group company, continues to provide tailored connectivity solutions for customers to exceed expectations by making communications easier, more versatile and a rewarding experience. With special rates for clients in the education sector, Nawras is committed to enriching the lives of people in the Sultanate of Oman through better communications services and products to meet current and future requirements.
