The deal follows the University's decision to acquire personal computers with PCI wireless cards from ZAI Technologies, for whom ICC acts as the distribution arm. Sumit Kumar, Regional Sales Manager at USRobotics, said, "Saudi Arabia is strategically one of the most important markets for USRobotics. Winning this major contract from Om Al-Qura University comes at a time when we are focusing on expanding our presence in the Kingdom."

"The USR MAXg wireless cards, which are known for their high performance and cost-effectiveness, will perfectly fit the requirements of Om Al-Qura University as they look to continue their tradition of imparting quality education," said Ahmed Mousa, Networking Products Manager, International Computer Company.
