UAE-based networking equipment and consultancy services provider, Network Information Technology (NIT), has secured three international project management contracts of which two form part of the United Nations rebuilding program currently underway in war-ravaged Afghanistan. The first will see NIT supplying and installing local and wide area networks (LAN and WAN), telephony systems and PABXs in Kabul and five other regions within Afghanistan. The second project aims to address security issues on behalf of the UN, where NIT is to supply and install surveillance equipment — such as Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) and biometric access control systems — as well as provide training on their uses. “Winning these major projects gives us tremendous confidence and places us at par with other major IT solution providers. This empowers us to undertake projects with a global perspective while at the same time reaffirms our commitment to regional clients in providing them state-of-the-art equipment and services,” explains NIT CEO Bassel Al Fakir. The third project win, from Syria’s Al Furat Petroleum Company, includes building a LAN and WAN for the company’s new head office in Damascus.
