A powerful new name in networking is making its presence felt in the Middle East. Debuting at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre this year, Potevio MENA, a new Middle East-China networking joint venture is showcasing its portfolio. The company is a partnership between Chinese state-owned Potevio and Saudi Arabian investors. “The Potevio deal goes back to looking for a partner who could offer the products and hardware for networking and IT,” says Abdullah Abdulaziz Sulaiman Al Mugairin, chairman of Almugairin International, and a member of the Potevio MENA board. “In our search we reached Potevio, as China’s companies have now started to expand outside the country and into the rest of the world,” he adds. Potevio has product lines covering the entire range of service provider and enterprise networking needs. Potevio is also a major player in the OEM space, producing handsets for global vendors such as Nokia. “Of every nine phones produced worldwide, three are produced in China; of those three, Potevio produces around 1.2,” says Dr Alie Hussein Saad, CEO of Potevio MENA.
