The Arab region, composed of 22 countries spanning Asia and Africa, opens ample room for communications and networking innovations and services and contributes to the critical mass of the global networking innovation. While the Arab world is considered an emerging market for communications and networking services, the rate of adoption is outpacing the global average. Several countries in the region are either building new infrastructure or developing existing infrastructure at an unprecedented pace. This provides a unique opportunity to fuse multiple advanced networking technologies as an integral part of the infrastructure design phase. Among a number of emerging communications and networking technologies, wireless and mobile technologies are of paramount importance and have become a key enabler for a multitude of services in our daily lives.
