Saudi Arabia’s MOFA selects Juniper to build network infrastructure

To connect its 104 embassies throughout the world

By CBR Staff Writer

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has selected Juniper Networks to build a high-performance network infrastructure to connect its 104 embassies throughout the world.

According to Juniper, the new infrastructure includes the headquarters data center backbone built using its routing, switching and security systems.

The Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) network will connect its Riyadh headquarters with branch offices in Jeddah and Dammam and embassies globally to deliver, accelerate and secure the pace and quality of online services, such as issuing visas and consular assistance, and the ministry’s key internal applications used for financials and human resources.

Ghassan Kutobi, ICT manager at MOFA, said: Our new high-performance network will deliver a responsive and trusted environment for deploying e-services more quickly and cost-effectively. We specifically selected Juniper Networks as our solution provider based on several key factors: the proven performance and reliability of its technology; the innovation of its EX series ethernet switches that leverage Junos Software, a single source network operating system; and the company’s ability to consult and execute on both a regional and global basis.
