Cisco partners with Jordan

Cisco, today, announced that it has entered into an agreement with Jordan's Ministry of Information and Communications Technology (MoICT) with respect to the implementation of a national broadband network. The three- year project to build the Cisco IP Next-Generation Network will be coordinated in conjunction with Cisco's certified resale and system integrator partners in the region.

The Government of Jordan is acting on its long term vision to provide Jordanian citizens with access to Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) and strongly believes the Cisco will play an important role in helping to make this happen. Jordan's schools, universities and colleges need to be connected via networks at a level and speed that can support the rapid growth of network traffic demand over the long term. Equally important, the country's knowledge stations, which provide convenient and affordable public access to computers and the Internet, need improved network support.
