BNET Chairman Shaikh Ali bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, recently welcomed HE Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Bahrain’s Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications at BNET headquarters, who paid a visit to discuss work progress in accordance with the Kingdom’s national telecommunication plan.

During the visit, the minister and guests took a tour of the company’s new facilities, recently equipped with the latest technologies. His Excellency was briefed on the facilities and departments of the company, most notably the recently announced Cybersecurity Operations Centre (CSOC), launched to secure digital infrastructure and ensure the provision of safe and reliable services, as well as the Service Management Centre (SMC) which provides round-the-clock support to BNET customers and licensed service providers in the Kingdom and the Networks Intelligence Centre of Excellence (NICE), that ensures the delivery of secure, reliable and stable network services. The three centres were launched in January as part of continued efforts to optimise digital operations and ensure the resilience of Bahrain’s telecommunication sector.

Headed by Mohamed Bubashait, Chief Executive Officer, the BNET team presented the company’s achievements since its establishment in 2019, which were implemented following a carefully developed medium to long-term strategy and guided by the company’s vision and goals.

HE Mohammed said: “A fibre optic network is the backbone of any knowledge-based economy and society and supports the government’s vision guided by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa’s directives which emphasizes on the transformation into a robust and resilient digital economy. The availability of an advanced and modern telecommunication infrastructure will enable the Kingdom of Bahrain to adequately interact with various future developments in this sector and support growth and digital transformation across all sectors of Kingdom’s economy.”

BNET’s Al Khalifa added that: “We are honoured to receive HE Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed at BNET’s new headquarters. BNET’s launch was a key part of the national telecommunication plan and contributes to enhancing the Kingdom’s position as a strategic investment destination and a regional hub for information technology.”
