U.S. Robotics increased its Middle East revenues by 41% in 2003. Key drivers in this revenue growth were increased adoption of its wireless networking and high-speed DSL products, plus high internet adoption rates in the region. “Internet connectivity trends in the Middle East have evolved rapidly over the last few years. Users are becoming more internet savvy and are embracing new technologies such as hotspots, which are continuing to be set up all over the region,” says Yusuf Syed, U.S. Robotics regional sales manager for the Middle East. “As such, the increasing availability of broadband has created demand for reliable products that support wireless networking for small businesses and home users,” he adds. In the fourth quarter 2003, U.S. Robotics experienced significant growth following the launch of its 802.11g Wireless Turbo product portfolio. The company sold twice the number of wireless products than in the previous nine months. “Our results demonstrate the viability of our product portfolios and strategic partnerships with the channel,” comments Syed. “U.S. Robotics will continue to anticipate and accommodate for the growing adoption of high-speed broadband connectivity in the Middle East and the products that support these trends,” he says.
