Omantel, FVC Mou For Video Conferencing Services

Omantel signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with FVC, a leading Value Added Distributor in Middle East and North Africa, to set up and launch Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS) in the Sultanate. The new service (to be launched soon) will allow businesses in Oman to access telepresence and video-conferencing services.

Dr Waleed Heloo, FVC’s General Manager for Gulf and Pakistan said, “This is a great opportunity for us to partner with a visionary operator like Omantel. This new service will definitely widen the adoption of video conferencing as an invaluable communications tool for businesses in the Sultanate.”

Under the MoU, FVC will work with Omantel to set up the Sultanate’s first VNOC (video network operations centre) based on Polycom’s industry-leading infrastructure, to offer Managed Video Services. This would provide Omantel’s customers with a unified service that includes bandwidth, conferencing services, and device management. The VNOC service is powered by expertise from FVC in successfully delivering video conferencing and VNOC services.

Huda Al Habsi, General Manager of Marketing Omantel Business added, “We are committed to providing local businesses with the latest tools to enable them to focus on running successful practices. Video conferencing is a strong communications tool and will help facilitate better internal and external communications for our enterprise customers without the large CAPEX investment.”

Omantel’s managed services are aimed at helping enhance the value of IT business investments through improved operational efficiency and service levels. The new MVaaS services allow businesses to maintain as much or as little control over their IT operations and infrastructure as they desire, while they focus on their core business activities.
