Baghdad-based networking integrator National Company for Communications Technology (NCCT) has formed a partnership with Pakistani satellite communications company Comstar. The new joint venture company, Alejaz Information Technology, will offer satellite networking solutions to customers in Iraq and the wider Middle East. NCCT will become part of Alejaz IT. NCCT is part of the larger UMRA Computer and Networking Consultants Group (UCC). The privately owned company was established in 1998 and has its headquarters in Dubai. UCC is currently witnessing strong demand for networking solutions in Iraq from both the government and private sector companies. Helkot Alshuwani, executive manager at UCC, said: “We operate as a communications and networking solutions provider specialized in wireless and satellite communications. We also operate a wireless ISP in Baghdad.” Sourcing product from distributors in the UAE and vendors around the world, UCC uses equipment from a variety of manufacturers including Cisco, 3Com, APC, Comtech, Wilan and Alco. “Demand is still high in Iraq as we are currently in the rebuilding period and the market is becoming more stable step-by-step. We already receive credit from distributors and look forward to working closely with major vendors,” added Alshuwani. UCC has a strong heritage of deploying networking solutions for public sector projects in the Middle East. The company already has a direct presence in five countries and sells its solutions into more than 20 countries through a strategic series of in-country reseller partnerships.
