Bapco hires Avaya to boost network infrastructure

Bahrain's national oil company, Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco), recently contracted with the American technology company Avaya to change the way its network infrastructure operates.

Bapco says its strategic plan is to rebrand and transform the digital solutions in the company, and partnering with Avaya will allow it to offer new services and provide better security to customers.

Bapco will be the first company from the oil and gas sector in the Middle East and North Africa to utilize Fabric NGA Avaya, fabric networking technology it says it will incorporate across its locations. The goal is to allow the company to quickly and securely add Internet-connected devices and services.
The technology is expected to require minimal maintenance and cause fewer problems that could impact operations.

“Bapco has never been quiet and we are always looking at how we can use technology to continue our leadership in the sector of oil and gas,” Daij Khalifa, director of technology and information at Bapco, said. “We need a network infrastructure that can meet our needs today and enable us to provide the services required in the future. The advanced technology of Avaya offer resistance, scalability and security to ensure that there is no impact on business processes while provisioning of new services is simplified as and when necessary.”

The collaboration will let Bapco offer digital signature, video, CCTV, voice, and data, among other products.
