UAE-based IT training and consultancy firm The Network Center (TNC) has added to its portfolio of services by signing a region-wide agreement with Nokia. The deal entitles TNC to act as a Nokia authorised training partner (ATP) throughout the entire Middle East and Africa region.
As an authorised training partner, TNC is qualified to train end users in security and mobility technologies developed by the Finnish mobile telecoms giant. Nokia’s enterprise solutions portfolio comprises enterprise firewall and VPN appliances, intrusion prevention products and its IntelliSync mobile suite.
Nabeel Ahmed, general manager at The Network Center, says the partnership strengthens the company’s position in the Middle East IT training market. “Businesses across the region are rapidly adapting to Nokia technologies as the training inquiries and sessions within the short span of our Nokia ATP status have been immense. We appreciate Nokia’s confidence in our team and intend to live up to it.”
It is understood that the appointment of TNC as a regional training partner follows its performance during Nokia’s channel scheme. TNC was initially selected to impart training in the Middle East, but upon completion of the training part of Nokia’s channel partner development campaign in South Africa was nominated to be an ATP for the whole Middle East and Africa region.
TNC provides training services for products sold by a number of enterprise vendors including Check Point and Symantec. It is also the region’s only Extreme Networks training partner.
