Tawasul Telecom Improves MPLS Infrastructure
Gulf Electronic Tawasul Company better known as Tawasul Telecom, offers various IP-based services to gas and oil, aviation, and financial verticals within the Middle East and the Arab world, locations not typically associated with the latest and greatest in technological innovations.
Touted as being the biggest MPLS provider in those regions, the company powers a fully redundant IP network that powers cross-border connectivity and meets international standards for performance, privacy, and security, a recent company statement revealed.
With the hope of proving how vital a MPLS platform is within academics, governmental and private sectors across the Arab world, the MPLS provider recently hosted the First Arab Internet Governance Forum which was organized by the Kuwait Society for Information Technology as well as the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), taking place from October 9th to the 11th at the Regency Hotel Kuwait.
Hani Al-Shakhs, a member of the Board of Directors for Tawasul Telecom, commented in regards to the forum, "Tawasul Telecom is very proud to sponsor the First Arab Internet Governance Forum, as it offers an invaluable opportunity for the exchange of views and experiences, and to discuss the future of the Internet in the Arab world in terms of its technological, political, and social impact."
Continuously remaining the forefront of all next-generation technology in this quickly developing area, Tawasul Telecom powers a Layer 2 VPN (MPLS) that boasts the ability to seamlessly integrate offices and applications within the global corporate environment, and also allows for virtual private networks to be developed that enable corporations to slash costs and optimize network performance. Further, its Layer 3 VPN (MPLS) is the perfect offering for large networks that require an ultra high level of scalability and flexibility alike.
Traveling back to the United States, UNSi ‘s suite of solutions include connectivity, managed services and professional services that are delivered to mid-to-large businesses and the channel partner community. When zeroing in on MPLS-based solutions specifically, UNSi dramatically reduces the total cost of ownership through seamlessly integrating data, voice and video networks via managed services; increases security and QoS/CoS of ATM and frame relay; and offers a robust disaster recovery solution through its fully meshed seamless failover backbone. Additionally, the firm consolidates telecom billing platforms and offers broadband connectivity to multiple locations all over the country.
Francis John, president and CEO of the organization stated, “UNSi becomes a single source vendor for telecom services providing one bill, one contract, one contact and one single set of SLA’s for a variety of telecom services for both enterprises and channel partners. Additionally, the UNSi balance sheet has become stronger, allowing us to be flexible in investing and pursuing future technologies to support our growth strategy, remaining ahead of the competition and exceeding future client and market demands.”
