Jordanian GSM operator, MobileCom, has invested in an EMC-based storage infrastructure as part of its business continuity strategy. The operator has become one of the first customers to deploy EMC’s Symmetrix DMX system, in order to protect and manage its customer records and financial data.

Going forward, MobileCom also plans to implment a remote disaster recovery site to protect business critical information should downtime occur.

STME will deploy the solution, and provide the necessary support and training services. The project is being managed onsite by IDEAL, which is STME’s partner in Jordan.

“Since our launch in September 2000, subscriber levels have dramatically increased. In line with this growth, MobileCom now generates a huge amount of data – ranging from billing details to business intelligence,” comments Mickael Ghossein, chief executive officer, MobileCom.

“In a competitive sector, such as Jordan’s GSM market, we have to ensure that our customers are given the best possible service. Because MobileCom has so many subscribers relying on us for their communication needs, we cannot afford to have any unplanned downtime. By creating an EMC-based business continuity strategy, we are safeguarding our market position and goodwill with subscribers,” he adds.
