The complex, which is expected to be completed within the final quarter of 2008, includes an advanced system integration service centre in charge of repairing, maintaining, and upgrading; an assembly centre for tetra modems and electronics; a command control centre; as well as a customer training centre responsible of educating Atlas’ customers on their services and products.
Praising this national initiative, Dr Mohammed Al Zarouni, vice chairman and chief executive officer – DSOA, said: “Dubai Silicon Oasis is very pleased to host one of the UAE’s pioneers in the telecom industry, and we are certain that the complex will provide the highest quality of technical services and solutions. This initiative is yet another testimonial on DSO’s success in bringing international technology entities closer to the local technology companies; thus facilitating the transfer of technology and know-how into the UAE in general and the emirate Dubai in particular.”
Ahmed Seddiq Al Mutawaa, president of Atlas Telecoms, said: “The reason behind our choice of establishing our complex within Dubai Silicon Oasis is largely due to the advanced infrastructure combined with its efficient customer focused services. Furthermore, the technology oriented environment accompanied with the integrated community concept developed within the Silicon Oasis makes it a prestigious address for not only local technology companies but also for regional and international technology entities. “ – TradeArabia News Service
