Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) has selected telecom equipment maker Avaya to deploy an internet protocol (IP) telephony network at its head office and customer hosting facility.

Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) has selected telecom equipment maker Avaya to deploy an internet protocol (IP) telephony network at its head office and customer hosting facility.

Avaya said the telephony would be implemented at the Dubai technology park using the converged network concept where voice, data and video are transmitted over a single cable to the end-user.

Avaya's local partner EMW will oversee the deployment of the network.

Tony Dyson, chief operating officer at the Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority, said the use of Avaya IP telephony would make its communications network more secure, less costly and easier to operate.

"DSO will implement best telephony services based on quality, reliability and scalability," Dyson commented.

Avaya said the project was due to be completed in April.

"Avaya's technology will provide DSO the advantage of the mobility and cost-saving benefits of IP telephony to facilitate its growth and implement best practice in the industry," commented Nidal Abou Ltaif, managing director, Avaya Middle East and North Africa.

"Businesses are clearly recognising that the next wave of competitive differentiation will be built on a foundation of intelligent communication," he added.

Launched in 2002, Dubai Silicon Oasis is a free zone for technology firms looking to set up research and development (R&D) facilities in Dubai.
