Green Packet has launched in the Middle East through two separate initiatives.

The firm, which supplies mobile broadband networking technologies, has launched a wireless broadband service in Bahrain in collaboration with Kalaam Telecom Bahrain, and set up a joint venture with Saudi Economic and Development Company Group (SEDCO).

Kalaam Telecom, a telecommunications service provider based in Bahrain, will use Green Packet’s SONmetro wireless broadband system to supply high-speed broadband wireless services in the Kingdom.

“We are proud to be the first in Bahrain to provide wireless broadband solutions using advanced technology from Green Packet,” commented Carlos Riera, CEO Kalaam Telecom.

Green Packet has also formed a joint venture with SEDCO Group. The new company, Green Packet Networks — which has an initial capital of US$5million — will market and distribute Green Packet’s wireless networking and telecommunication products in the region as well as to North Africa, Pakistan and India.

Green Packet’s customers include China Telecom Group, Maxis Communications Bhd, Dell and BenQ.
