Umniah, Ideco in tie-up
Umniah, a leading telecom service provider in Jordan, has signed a local frame relay agreement with Irbid District Electricity Company (Ideco), one of the Kingdom's major public companies.
Under the agreement, Umniah will provide Ideco with its business solutions service that will link Ideco's offices located in several northern governorates to its headquarters in Irbid.
Umniah's CEO Ihab Hinnawi described Ideco as a pioneer in utilising the latest technologies in all areas of its operations to present its customers with advanced, high-quality services.
Ideco's general manager Ahmad Thainat said: "Umniah’s dedication to continuous progress and development has placed it at the forefront of customer-market-centric telecom service providers that strive to assist public sector companies in catering to needs of the local community.”
"I would also like to thank Umniah for supporting the student festival we held in collaboration with the Electricity Regulatory Commission with the aim of raising students’ awareness on the subject of energy rationalization and the safe use of energy,” he added.
The local frame relay agreement corresponds with Umniah’s interest in broadening the scope of its business solutions services by providing Ideco with the multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) service and the Internet over microwave service, a statement said.
