A global leader in digital transformation, US-based Beyond Technology (BT) has revealed its investments in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia regions to back regional fiberization projects with Infinera solutions. 

BT’s investment decisions are in line with its ambitions to meet the ever-growing demand for bandwidth in these regions.

Infinera is a recognized leader in high-performance optical networking solutions and Beyond Technology, with its presales, deployment, and support engineering expertise will be able to cater to the growing demand for their projects.

BT has also formally closed service agreements allowing for 33 warehouse facilities across the region, including in United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Egypt, Pakistan, Tunisia, Jordan, and Oman.

A partner of leading technology companies such as Google, Juniper Networks, and VMware, Beyond Technology has also been recognized as a Global Gold channel partner by Infinera.

The company helps bring its resources and those of its partners for fiber optic expertise in the MEA region and Pakistan while these skilled experts consult, design, implement and support the clients

Due to the massive increase in data consumption, 5G, social media content, streaming video, and digital transformation initiatives, there are major investments in fiberization projects worldwide. Beyond Technology works closely with Infinera to meet these demands.

Moreover, Infinera’s industry-leading solutions include ICE6, an 800G coherent optical engine technology that enables customers to meet growing capacity demands and put more revenue-generating services over a given fiber pair at the lowest cost per bit.

Supply chain timelines combined with local logistical service levels across delivery and repair is another critical necessity in today’s business environment. To address this particular need, Beyond Technology has partnered with leading regional logistical companies to provide multiple regional warehousing facilities for its service provider clients with the highest service levels in delivery to clients, low cost, data analytics using AI on inventory, and next day turnaround times for critical repair operations.

“We are currently seeing massive, accelerated growth in fiber across all markets due to increased data usage. As a result, cloud and service providers need to modernize their transmission networks to cope with these new demands. This is being seen consistently in almost every emerging market we operate in. This trend also appears to be continuing in the foreseeable future. This is why we have ramped up our local sales team, engineers, and logistics capabilities. These investments will consolidate further leadership for Beyond Technology and Infinera within the MEA and South Asia region. We look forward to jointly supporting our customers even better.”

Meanwhile, Ms. Lorraine Twigg, VP of Partners and Development, Infinera remarked that, “We are very excited to expand our global partnership with Beyond Technology to the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia markets.
