Wireless infrastructure provider Trapeze Networks has stepped up its activity in the Middle East by setting up its own operations in the region, it said last week.

The California, US-headquartered firm, best known for its Smart Mobile wireless solutions, opened its first regional office, in Dubai, last month and has now appointed a manager to head up its activities.

Feras Zeidan has been appointed to the newly-created role of regional manager for MEA.

"A key factor in our increased activity in the Middle East is the rapid pace of its growth," said Kees van Veenendaal, Trapeze Networks general manager and vice president of sales for EMEA.

Trapeze Networks, which has activities in Europe, Japan and Asia-Pacific, previously operated in the Middle East through its distribution partner East Meets West (EMW) and has sold its products in the region since 2003, a spokesperson said.

Its customers in the region include Burj Al Arab and the University of Sharjah.

"The appointment of Feras Zeidan is another key move in our expansion strategy. Zeidan's extensive background in IT and his wide market experience in the region perfectly fit the job's profile," Van Veenendaal added.
