“This partnership with Netgear will make available technologically-driven solutions to KSA’s most important industries, which will help them maximise the opportunities within this booming market,” said Dr Basheer Al Jabri, president at ICC Group

“While providing high-end solutions to multinational corporations, we will also bring forward Netgear’s products to small to medium businesses. As the heart of the Kingdom’s trading community, we want to provide them with the tools to ensure that they benefit from innovations that can help increase their productivity,” he added.
