Saudi Arabia’s Integrated Telecom Company (ITC) has announced that it has enhanced its enterprise VSAT services with iDirect’s ‘Evolution’ platform, which is expected to help it meet its strategic growth targets. ITC has purchased an iDirect Universal 15000 Series satellite hub, which has been integrated with iDirect’s iDX 3.0 software to support demand in the banking sector. By integrating MPLS with VSAT, ITC will enable its enterprise customers to manage remote extensions of their corporate network to rural areas on one MPLS network. With regards to the banking sector, that means connecting remote branches and ATMs to a bank’s corporate headquarters more efficiently, lowering operating costs and increasing productivity.
Corporate telco ITC, which was established in 2005, has six international gateways in Jeddah, Al-Khobar, UAE, Egypt, Qatar and Jordan linked through cross border connectivity and supported by regional submarine cables. In addition, ITC has invested heavily in its independent 12,000km fibre-optic network which connects the key cities in the Kingdom, with an additional 10,000km worth of fibre set for deployment in metropolitan areas.
