IT networking, consultancy, security training and certification experts Spectrum, have opened a new data centre based on Juniper Networks 2 Tier Switching Architecture in Dubai.

As we see more end user requirements for advance training we can help provide the highest level of certified Instructors and a rich pool of professionals to help people scale their knowledge," said Sanjeev Kumar Singh, managing director, Spectrum FZ.
Spectrum's in-house consulting group will be used in the project to ensure best practices, standards and compliances in its deliverables.
