Systems integrator Waseela has completed the roll out of a high speed wireless network to connect public schools in Jordan.

The network will provide connectivity between schools and education directorates across the Kingdom of Jordan, via an advanced wireless network, which will help schools to access online education resources.

The project is part of an agreement signed between Waseela and Umniah Telecom, to design, supply and install more than 3,000 high speed wireless connections throughout the Kingdom. The project has been completed in under one year.

The official launch of the project was announced by Dr Omar Al Razaz, Minister of Education, and the launch was attended by Eng. Dean Ali Al Assaf, General Director of Special Communications Authority of the Jordanian Armed Forces and Ziad Shatara, CEO of Umniah, as well as executives from Waseela and officials.

Dr Samer Taha, CEO of Waseela said: "Waseela has used an advanced wireless technology which relies on fixed wireless connections from one point to several points at the same time. This technology enabled us to overcome many technical difficulties and build the network with the lowest cost possible compared to the cost of traditional wireless technologies."
