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. In the end, it is unlikely that the territorial Islamic State can survive. The truth is that Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia are all waiting for the U.S. to solve the problem with air power and a few ground forces. These actions will not destroy IS, but they will break the group's territorial coherence.
