GITEX: Regional distributor to sell network solutions for video conferencing products in MENA.
Regional distributor FVC has signed a deal with US network service provider Masergy to sell its solutions in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), the company said on Sunday.
FVC said it will offer Masergy's internet protocol (IP) network solutions for video conferencing products, with it plans to launch in the UAE and then expand across the rest of MENA.
