SAUDI ARABIA.  STC has successfully completed linkage of “The Business Gate” project with fiber optics technology.

The strategic project, which is considered the biggest of its kind in both the private and public sectors, is based in Riyadh on an area of 134,500 square meters and is composed of 43 business and office buildings, in addition to a 5-star hotel and a conference hall.

The project is built to the highest standards of technology including fiber optics in an effort to increase efficiency of operations and attract investors and businesses.

STC’s experience contributed greatly to linking the complex together and connecting the buildings to each other with a highly secure and unified virtual network that sets new standards for corporate information security, a feat that is expected to greatly increase operational efficiency in the complex and in future projects.

STC employs its vast network that stretches across the kingdom to support and provide innovative solutions to virtual networks, through various connection methods whether by copper cables or fiber optics, or with wireless connection through “WIMAX” services or through satellites (VSAT) for rural areas. STC’s innovative solutions are highly versatile, flexible, and highly adaptable to modernization and gradual expansion which helps meet the ever-growing client demand.

INTERNATIONAL. One aspect of this war is that both sides apparently found it necessary, despite knowing it would have no definitive military outcome. The question therefore is not what the point of all this is but where all this ends.
