Computer Data Networks (CDN ) – Iraq office, a regional Systems Integrator and ISP is pleased to announce that high speed Fiber Optic connection between Iraq and the rest of the world is now fully operational. In November, Iraq’s ITPC and CDN announced signing of the contract under which CDN will operate and market southern portion of Iraq’s new DWDM Fiber Optic Network which covers the entire country.  CDN is responsible for handling the southern portion which runs from Baghdad to Basrah and on to borders of Kuwait and Iran.

Following extensive testing and fine-tuning, the Network is now fully operational and is already handling customer traffic. Iraqi Ministry of Communications and CDN believe that the new fiber connection will allow regional operators, carriers and Internet Service Providers to exchange traffic with fast-growing user population of Iraq.

"This new addition to our branches across the region comes just at the right time and the right place" said Mr. Dejan Nikolin, Sr. VP of Sales & Marketing at CDN. "This marks a strategic milestone in CDN's expansion. We consider the opening of our Bahrain office as a step forward in our company's vision to more rapidly and affordably meet the needs of our clientele. We at CDN are confident that our clients will enjoy the quality of the services, products, and solutions we already provide in the other markets across the region."

Mr. Sadeq Shehab, who is in charge of CDN Bahrain  added "With significant experience, resources, and infrastructure, CDN  will offer solutions in the key areas of Data Processing, Telecommunications, Networking, and Security. The Manama office will heighten our profile within the Gulf region, where we foresee significant opportunities for further ICT investment and growth. "
