Ooredoo Qatar has signed an agreement with global technology provider Cisco to further accelerate the adoption of Ooredoo Business EDGE, which serves organizations’ connectivity needs with enhanced control, security and value-added services.
With Ooredoo Business Edge, all organizations’ connectivity needs can be met, in addition to managing multiple devices and sites and scale Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN).
With Business Edge, customers can manage hybrid working environments and enhance network performance at each breach.
Ooredoo, which co-developed Business EDGE using Cisco Meraki, emphasises the importance of supporting the digital journey for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and small offices and home offices (SOHOs) organisations. The solution continues Ooredoo’s strong partnership with Cisco, with Ooredoo already being a Cisco Gold Certified Partner since 2018.
Ooredoo chief business officer Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad al-Thani said, “In response to demands from our customers for solutions to enhance the value of our fibre broadband offering, we see strong take-up of our Ooredoo Business EDGE solution. Our signing ceremony with Cisco cements our partnership for our valued business customers to find a greater choice in the fibre solutions that best meet their needs.”
Cisco Qatar acting general manager Hasan Khan said, “When conducting research with small and medium businesses, 59% of respondents told us that they noticed increased company security because of SD-WAN usage.
“Operating efficiency, cost savings and employee productivity were also noted as benefits. By harnessing the Ooredoo Business EDGE, based on Cisco’s industry-leading SD-WAN technology, organisations in Qatar will experience greater control and security, while also being afforded greater value-added services via fibre broadband solutions.”
