Saudi Arabia’s leading dairy food producer, Almarai, has deployed a number of Cisco 7940 and 7960 series IP phones. Implemented at the Saudi company’s largest farms, which is located in the Todhia Valley near Al Kharj, the solution operates on a Cisco switched LAN and Avaya bridged wireless network. It is interconnected by radio frequency (RF) with five other farms and Almarai’s main manufacturing facility.

“While voice over IP (VOIP) is nothing new to Almarai, this is the first time that Almarai has selected a IP telephony solution over a traditional PBX or Key phone system,” says Clinton Jones, infrastructure & technical support manager for Almarai.

“Almarai regards Cisco and Avaya as strategic technology partners and has made considerable investment in the technologies of both companies in the past few years [to] extend the capability of its LANs and WANs via VSAT, digital leased lines, radio frequency, MPLS and the internet,” he adds.
