Tamer Group partners with InfiNet Wireless to boost connectivity
The InfiNet solution has enabled Tamer Group to deploy and support several business-critical applications
Tamer Group has selected InfiNet Wireless to ensure seamless connectivity and high bandwidth across several facilities in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
With this InfiNet's solution, the healthcare company is able to support its business-critical applications with less management and maintenance at a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Tamer Group deployed InfiNet's InfiLINK 2x2 5GHz PRO & LITE family of products, plus for critical communication between their data centre and head office, the company deployed the R5000-Omx model as it could support speeds of up to 300 Mbps over the 50 km distance. For connections between all other sites, Tamer Group deployed the R5000-Smn and the R5000-Lmn products.
Mohannad Al Jammal, head of IT Operations & Network Infrastructure at Tamer Group said: "One of the big challenges we faced was the topography and the distance between our head office and the remote branches; many of the locations are about 30-40 km apart. So deploying a wireless network that was reliable and stable in these harsh conditions was at the top of our priority list.
"In parallel, we needed to ensure that the new wireless network could provide high bandwidth that would not only support the existing business needs but also be future-proofed for demand over the next few years. Given our unique requirements, InfiNet was the only viable solution on the market."
One of the main benefits is the ability for Tamer Group to transmit volumes of business-critical data between various sites, plus the long-term cost savings.
Al Jammal added: "The upfront investment for the InfiNet solution, when compared to other technologies, is slightly higher as obviously, there are a lot of hardware costs. But over the long term, the TCO is much lower.
"Implementing the InfiNet solution has also saved our IT resources a lot of time, as it has significantly reduced the amount of effort required to manage and maintain the network. While we do have the ability to monitor several parameters like performance, availability, bandwidth and transmission on a day-to-day basis, we have a service contract in place with United Horizons to take care of any problems with the network."
