Jordan Telecom, the largest provider of telecom services in Jordan announced today that it has successfully "gone live" with one of the Middle East's most sophisticated enterprise storage implementations from STME, a leading enterprise storage company in the region. Owned in part by France Telecom, Jordan Telecom's new world-class storage infrastructure gives it the same capacity to store call usage and customer billing data as some of the world's leading telecoms providers.
"Jordan Telecom's new enterprise storage strategy enables us to better understand our customer's needs while becoming more efficient internally," said Stephan Achard, Jordan Telecom's operation department manager. “As the number of telecoms and Internet users in Jordan increases, so does the demand for new services, and this has caused the amount of Jordan Telecom's mission-critical information to increase more than 100 percent in the last year,” he added.
Jordan Telecom will utilise its new enterprise storage solution to secure, manage, and retrieve mission-critical information, including fixed line, fax and mobile call duration, internet and e-mail usage, billing details, service calls, and financial transactions.
The basis of Jordan Telecom's new storage area network is hardware provided by EMC, a global technology partner of STME. The system, connected through a fibre channel, enables continuous availability of key customer and financial data even to remote offices. Jordan Telecom now has up to three terabytes of data, or three trillion bytes, stored in its new system, and its storage needs are continuing to expand.
With its new implementation, Jordan Telecom joins 95% of the world's telecoms companies in deploying such an EMC-based infrastructure, which will enable the company to connect any of its servers and applications for a single point of data management, data protection and ease of data sharing.
"By implementing a leading-edge storage strategy that is both scaleable and reliable, Jordan Telecom has created an infrastructure that can grow as its array of services and customer base increases," said Andrew Calthorpe, sales director of STME. " Jordan Telecom's vision for storing and utilising its critical information and resources more effectively now ranks it among the region's most forward-thinking organizations,” he added.
