Viper adds scale to global strategy with Saudi office
CALIFORNIA, US-based Viper Networks has opened an office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as part of its global development strategy.
The office, opened under a license from the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA), will market and manage voice over internet protocol (VoIP) services, networks and infrastructure in the Middle East, Pakistan, India and neighbouring areas.
The company said the office will serve as a key element in its growth strategy of finding and serving overlooked markets worldwide.
Initial projects to be managed out of the Saudi office are expected to produce US$10million or more in annual revenue, the firm said.
It added that within the next two years, it expects the Saudi operation will generate several similar projects but did not specify if these will be exclusively in the Middle East.
“The establishment of our new Middle East and South Asian headquarters in Saudi Arabia marks a milestone in Viper Networks’ emergence as a worldwide VoIP company,” said Farid Shouekani, CEO at Viper Networks.
“It reflects our current emphasis, which is to expand beyond our North American base by concentrating on overseas markets, especially in the developing world, that are underserved by most other VoIP providers. The Saudi office gives us a new ability to serve highly populous regions with widespread internet access and high demand for reliable telephone service,” he added.
Viper Networks provides VoIP products and services through distributors and resellers around the world. It claims to serve more than 350 countries and regions.
