Tawasul adds Germany to cloud network
Kuwait, April 30, 2013
Kuwait based Gulf Electronic Tawasul Company (Tawasul Telecom), a leader in the provisioning of IP based services in the GCC, said it has added Frankfurt, Germany to its MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) Private Cloud Network.
Frankfurt is Tawasul Telecom’s second point of presence in Europe, thus bringing the total to nine including the six GCC countries besides Egypt and the UK, said the company in a statement.
Through its private MPLS Cloud Network, Tawasul Telecom is a one-stop-shop for cross-border connectivity services, ideal for businesses to interconnect their operations through private, flexible, and highly reliable Virtual Private Networks. These services are ideal for the oil and gas sector, airline industry, and the financial sector.
The addition of Frankfurt to Tawasul's private cloud network is part of its strategy to boost its core network infrastructure and services in the GCC region, finding smart opportunities for expansion, and anticipating future private sector connectivity service needs to and from the Mena region.
Commenting on the move, Salem Almulaifi, the business development director for Tawasul Telecom said: “We are continuously working on expanding our private cloud network and services, while at the same time strengthening the reliability and quality of our service, which our clients have come to expect. The addition of Frankfort to our Network was an opportunity to do both.”
In describing the future demand for connectivity services in the Mena region, Almulaifi stated, “We have been seeing strong signs that the private sector in particular is recovering from the financial crisis of 2008, companies are now looking to expand their operations and upgrade their telecommunications capabilities. Tawasul Telecom is ready to fill that need,” he added.
In addition to expanding its private cloud network, Tawasul has a keen interest in the future of the telecommunications sector across the region, which is evident by its recent sponsorship of the first Arab Internet Governance Forum last October, as well as its sponsorship of the “Kuwait International Communications Forum” in January 2013.-TradeArabia News Service
