Bahrain hub for Malaysian firm
Manama, July 15, 2007
Malaysian networking company Greenpacket Berhad has chosen Bahrain as its point of entry for the Middle East and North African market.
The Kuala Lumpur-based company already has a base here, from which it is now looking to tap further into the regional market.
Greenpacket held a forum at the Mercure Grand Hotel, Seef, to meet its GCC partners, under the banner Turning Partnership into Revenue.
'We came to Bahrain to show companies our Self Organising Network (SON) Series and to also meet companies that would be interested in a 100 per cent partnership with Greenpacket,' chief executive officer Micheal Lai said.
He said the SON Series was a next-generation network solution that allowed users to access their own personal broadband Internet link from wherever they may be, in a world where workers must be increasingly mobile.
The SON Series is already used in countries such as China, Malaysia and Australia, but this will be the first time the series has been launched in the Middle East.
'We at Greenpacket are ready to introduce the SON Series to the Middle East with the help of our partners. We believe in offering prospective partners 100pc pure partnership. Our motto is global vision, local wisdom,' said Lai.
'We are happy with the turnout at the forum. It was an encouraging response and hope that the SON Series as well as our other business in the region will help us become the next generation ubiquitous communications enabler.' -TradeArabia News Service
