Riedel Networks Partners With Kalaam Carrier Solutions

News Image
Riedel Networks has announced a strategic partnership with Kalaam Carrier Solutions, a prominent digital solutions provider headquartered in Bahrain, to enhance the MENA region's motorsports experience and establish a robust, permanent network infrastructure.

"Collaborating with Riedel Networks on this endeavour has allowed Kalaam to continue to cater to strategic industries and mission-critical projects within the GCC, such as the world’s largest motorsports events, where quality and performance of the connectivity solution is paramount for success," said Veer Passi, Group CEO of Kalaam. "By seamlessly integrating our carrier-agnostic approach with Riedel’s expertise, we have set the stage for continued excellence and groundbreaking advancements in the dynamic realm of global connectivity."

The project, initiated in November 2022, required a swift turnaround, with everything in place by mid-February 2023. It was completed within three months, with the first stage of Kalaam's proposed plan having already reduced the round-trip delay from Riedel's Milan POP to the Middle East POP from 120 to 70 milliseconds — a 41% improvement. Moreover, a new POP in Manama, Bahrain, enables Riedel to utilize fully Kalaam’s wholly owned terrestrial cable system, Kalaam Network Optical Transit (KNOT), to cover additional countries including Saudi Arabia (Riyadh), Kuwait (Kuwait City), Qatar (Doha), and the UAE (Abu Dhabi and Dubai).

"Kalaam Carrier Solutions aligned perfectly with our criteria for a partner, bringing not just technological expertise but also a commitment to seamless collaboration and an unwavering focus on achieving our shared goals," said Michael Martens, CEO at Riedel Networks, "This collaboration has fortified our network infrastructure and laid the foundation for future endeavors."
