Etisalat signs strategic deal with Entiretec
Dubai, October 27, 2013
Etisalat, the leading telecom company in the Middle East and Africa, has announced its partnership with Entiretec, a leading managed services provider, to offer bandwidth-on-demand services based on its CLT – Core Layer Technology.
The partnership will enable Etisalat to provide high speed internet access with bandwidth-on-demand up to speeds of 1 GB, the Emirati firm said on the sidelines of the Gitex expo. It will significantly boost Etisalat’s hospitality offering, it added.
This solution provides hotels with the ability to increase and decrease the bandwidth they provide to various areas of their premises from their regular monthly allowance as needs fluctuate – such as when the hotel is hosting a conference.
The managed bandwidth-on-demand service from Etisalat, powered by Entiretec’s CLT, is an ideal adaptable solution for the hospitality and leisure vertical that enables hotels to make efficiency savings by converting capital costs into operational costs, said the company statement.
“Hotel and conference guests are becoming ever more data hungry, and increasingly expect their hotels to have world-class data speeds. This partnership ensures that Etisalat’s hotel customers can always keep pace with their guests’ demands with a quality on-demand internet service,” said Abdulla Hashim, senior vice president (ICT) for Etisalat UAE.
It also empowers hotels to manage their broadband usage more effectively, with extra bandwidth outside their usual usage allocation being charged per megabyte, per day, he added.
Julian Kraft, the Entiretec MD (Middle East) said: “We are very excited to partner with Etisalat on their business connectivity services through our solutions and global managed services. This will allow both of us to be more flexible with the technology the hospitality vertical demands and we can scale the solutions to customers’ needs within their core business.”-TradeArabia News Service
