After several hard months on the road the Cisco AVVID truck has arrived in Amman, Jordan, for the finale of a Middle East tour that has seen its crew educate all and sundry about the joys of networking.

Onboard the 18-wheel monster, Jordanian businesses will, apparently, discover a plethora of wireless technologies that demonstrate how converged voice/data networks can be simply implemented over commercially available, standards-based wireless networks.

“The Cisco AVVID Truck contains state-of-the-art telecommunications, collaboration and customer contact technology,” says Mohammed Abdul Malak, regional manager for Cisco Systems in the Levant.

The truck has support in high places, as HE Dr. Bassem Awadallah, Jordanian Minister of Planning, is urging local companies take a look at what’s onboard as more and more Jordanians get online.

“Cisco has made a commitment to bring the next generation of technologies to Jordan: bringing the AVVID Truck tour here gives Jordanian organisations a perspective on the tools they need to compete successfully in the Internet age,” he says.
