Saudi STC inks deal with Cisco to deliver wireless innovations

Cisco Meraki and STC Solutions signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to drive wireless technology adoption and fuel economic growth in-line with Saudi Vision 2030’s digital transformation objectives.

The MoU states the two companies plan to work together and develop innovative wireless managed services for the Saudi market, intended to make it easier and more economical for customers to start their digital journeys.

“STC constantly delivers the latest in managed services with an innovative approach to servicing our clients across all business sectors. We have a long-term relationship with our strategic partner Cisco, and we look forward to enhancing this partnership through adopting world-class solutions that will help our clients to accelerate their digital transformation journey. With the variety of networking and router management solutions that STC provides, the new managed services solution will complement STC’s current portfolio,” said Hatem Al Kadi, Vice President of Managed Services at STC.

Saudi organisations of all sizes and verticals are adopting Wi-Fi services for their existing and new business locations. More than half of Saudi private enterprises have Wi-Fi in their head office, as well as in remote branches. There is also increasing investment in wireless solutions in tourism, hospitality, transportation and other sectors. Cisco Meraki, with its focus on simplicity and easy management through a centralised dashboard, will provide STC customers with unmatched visibility and control over their infrastructure.

“We are incredibly excited to work with STC to help drive digital transformation in the region. Cisco Meraki is a perfect match for STC and its customers, providing a secure, easy-to-use wireless experience. We look forward to working with STC to transform the digital footprint of Saudi businesses,” said Salman Faqeeh, Managing Director – Saudi Arabia, Cisco.
