STC is also expected to reveal more details about its partnership with ELM, with the support of the National Information Center, for the provision of cloud computing services to government agencies so as to enable Vision 2030.
""For us, GITEX is about seeing our customers from inside and outside the Kingdom, hearing out their ambitions and plans for the year ahead, and showing them what new solutions we have to address those ambitions and plans,"" said Tarig M. Enaya, STC SVP of enterprise.
Driving STC is Vision 2030, the Kingdomâ€™s blueprint for transformation of the Saudi economy for the coming decade. For STC, this means it is focused on digitization as enabling force for bringing more public and private sector services online.
STC Business, the national operatorâ€™s enterprise focused business unit, delivers ICT solutions and services tailored toward the needs and requirements of government agencies and enterprises of all sizes through a series of the largest data centers in the Kingdom and a variety of digital, managed and cloud services.
Tying these data centers together is a 147,000 km long fiber optic network, augmented by a mobile network covering 96 percent of populated areas with 2G and 3G mobile services and 85 percent of populated areas enjoying 4G LTE coverage.
Connecting these national networks to the globe are a series of cross-border overland and submarine cables feeding the Kingdom with 1.5 terabits/second of internet bandwidth.
