By partnering with Ubimax, etisalat is consolidating its position as a leader in bringing new products and new technologies to market for the benefit of our customers across our international footprint. This innovative technology will create a new line of solutions and an additional revenue stream for etisalat."

Based on the result of the trials and customer feedback, etisalat will subsequently create offerings across its international footprint of 18 countries.
