The telco is to use Aperto Network's wireless PacketWave system to provide a range of services including WAN/LAN access, high-speed internet access and video conferencing to customers in Kuwait.

Other applications available through the platform include remote access, corporate intranets and extranets, file transfer, and interactive distance learning.

Ebraheem added that the company particularly rated the routing and advanced networking features of the platform provided by California, US-based Aperto.
