Wireless networking provider Green Packet Networks (GPN) has inked an agreement with Saudi Arabian systems integrator Nesma to promote the vendor's Self Organising Network (SON) portfolio in the Kingdom.

The move follows GPN's July commitment to expand its partner network in the region.

Ali Al Mashat, chairman at Green Packet, said the firm hopes its tie-up with Nesma will help boost its business in the Saudi market, in which it recently established local operations.

"This is a mutually beneficial partnership," said Mashat. "We are confident that GPN will grow through expanding in the Saudi market through Nesma, while Nesma can benefit from offering its customers the Next Generation Network solutions based on GPN's unique technologies."

KSA ranked fifth in the region for ICT use last year, according to Madar Research, with internet users close to five million - equal to over 20% of the Kingdom's population.

Al Mashat added that the firm was aiming for market leadership in KSA.

"The agreement with Nesma will be limited to KSA at the moment to ensure a dedicated focus on the rapidly growing Saudi market," he said. "We believe that Nesma has the expertise not only to take Green Packet's technology to the Saudi market, but also to position it on top there," he added.
