Tellabs and Spectrum Training have signed a partnership agreement to provide Tellabs certified training and lab services in the Middle East.
Local service providers will now be able to access a combination of premium products and training.
"We are pleased to add Tellabs solutions and products into our area of expertise. Service providers can now enhance their technical knowledge locally without the need for travel," said Ajay Singh Chaunan, CEO, Spectrum Group. "We provide well-equipped training and lab facilities in several Middle East countries and we also offer in-house training for service providers."
The new courses include mobile backhaul for 2G, 3G and 4G networks, designed to help
service providers optimise current networks, reduce operating and capital expenses, and plan future network investments.
"The Middle East region is one of the fastest-growing telecommunications markets in the world, where there is a real need for the high quality engineering and telecom expertise," said Tarcisio Ribeiro, vice president, Europe, Middle East & Africa at Tellabs. "Partnership with Spectrum Training enables us to improve and expand our certified training and lab service portfolio locally, helping our customers to succeed as the market continues to expand."
Tellabs has been supporting service providers in the Middle East for more than 10 years. To enable closer cooperation with service providers, Tellabs has relocated its Middle East headquarters to Dubai.
