Umm Al Quwain, UAE, 2 March 2011 –
NEC Unified Solutions, specialists in communication solutions for small, medium and large enterprises in both the private and public sectors, has been selected by UAE’s Ministry of Public Works (MOPW) to deliver its communications solutions in the new state-of-the-art hospital in Umm Al Quwain (UAQ), scheduled to be open mid-2011. The deal was part of a larger technology project won by NEC’s authorised partner, Alliance Communication Solutions.
Mr Mohammad AL-Mansoori, Director of South District, MOPW, “We worked with our project consultants to create a state-of-the-art hospital that would offer the highest level of service that would match international standards. We selected NEC because they matched our needs in terms of delivering a system that would be reliable, scalable and cost effective.”
The current communications system in the new UAQ hospital covers 1500 extensions supported by internal CAT7 cabling and a fibre backbone for voice and data services with its own dedicated communications and server room, according to Alliance Communication Solutions.
Frits Neyndorff, Managing Director for the Middle-East & Africa at NEC Unified Solutions, said, “We are very pleased to be associated with this prestigious project. It is the first in the UAE to implement our UNIVERGE SV8500 communication server. The UNIVERGE SV8500 that is being implemented at the new Umm Al Quwain hospital is a powerful enterprise-level solution capable of being easily and efficiently scaled to meet its needs as it expands its services.”
NEC partner, Alliance Communication Solutions, worked with MOPW consultants to design, implement and manage the complete project. Alliance has been an authorised partner for NEC Unified Solutions for more than six years with a large install base in the UAE covering hotels, hospitals, ministries, and enterprises.
The CEO of Alliance Communication Solutions, Riza Wasti said, “We thank the MOPW authorities for giving us and NEC an opportunity to work on this prestigious project. We have been working closely with the team to ensure that the system works efficiently and well to the highest international standards.”
