With demand for gigabit services, IoT and file-sharing applications growing, Infonas needed to establish a local area network (LAN) that would allow it to meet and stay ahead of enterprise demands. Deploying the Nokia Optical LAN solution will provide Infonas’ enterprise customers with a high-capacity, scalable alternative to copper-based options that is cheaper to operate and more efficient to run.

Rafik Shafik Abdelmessih, CTO of Infonas W.L.L. Bahrain, said: “We needed a long-term, fully scalable and cost-efficient solution to provide our business customers access to high-speed internet and IT services via a state-of-the-art network. We are confident Nokia’s solution will provide that. It is an ideal fit for us to meet our customers’ demands and achieve our ambition to grow fast.”

Mohamed Salama, Head of Fixed Networks, Middle East and Africa, said: “Adoption of this technology continues to increase globally as enterprises in all industry segments look at this alternative LAN architecture to help lower capital and operating costs. This project demonstrates the benefits of Nokia Optical LAN and how it can deliver a high-capacity, resilient and scalable network that simplifies operations and ultimately helps to reduce costs for enterprises.”
