Trapeze kicks off WLAN seminar series
Riyadh, December 11, 2007
Trapeze Networks, the award-winning wireless connectivity provider, has kicked off a series of seminars on wireless local area network (WLAN) technology throughout Saudi Arabia.
It is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to complement Saudi Arabia’s aggressive ICT adoption process.
A large turnout distinguished the first seminar held at the Le Meridian Hotel in Khobar (December 8) and the second at the Holiday Inn Riyadh (December 10). Another seminar will be held at the Westin Jeddah on December 12.
“Saudi Arabia’s ICT development is growing so fast, however we are finding that many organisations do not have the ICT infrastructure in place to reap the benefits of the technology advancements. We provide the first and only enterprise wireless solutions that enables massively scalable voice over WLAN and other demanding mobile applications, indoors and out, which enables enterprises to deploy advanced mobile applications on a truly enterprise scale and at the lowest cost,” said regional manager, Trapeze Networks, Feras Zeidan.
The seminars’ chief presenter is channel training manager of Trapeze in the EMEA region Dr Peter Dahl who discusses Trapeze’s WLAN technology, including the ‘intelligent switching’ architecture.
This technology enables customers to combine both centralised and distributed data forwarding based on the needs of the underlying application, resulting in an optimised traffic flow, peak performance and massive scalability to support advanced wireless applications.
The Road Show is being held only weeks after Trapeze signed a partnership agreement with Gulf Gaihab International (GGI) that will see GGI become Trapeze's value-added distributor in Saudi Arabia. The deal is expected to further enhance Trapeze Networks' coverage of the Saudi market through GGI's broad customer base.
“As one of Saudi’s top 100 companies, we are well versed with the benefits of innovative wireless network solutions and their effect on improving business communications and productivity. This is why we are encouraging all businesses interested in enhancing their ICT capabilities, especially those in the hospitality and education sectors, to attend this valuable event,” said business manager – IT and Communication, GGI, Hani Bitar.
Trapeze Networks, an industry-leading wireless local area network solutions provider, was established in March 2002 with two simple goals: to provide enterprise-wide seamless mobility and meet network manager and IT staff requirements. More than 2,000 organisations worldwide have adopted the provider’s WLAN technology.
