At Alcatel’s new regional headquarters for the Middle East, located in the Smart Village in Cairo, Egypt, the company has launched a ‘Partnership Space’ so that it can work with local companies to help them accomplish multimedia service projects adapted to the needs of local users.

Under the scope of the initiative, a selection process will be put in place for Egyptian companies wishing to partner and Alcatel will certify these companies after they have demonstrated their ability to develop software applications. Alcatel will then be in a position to work jointly with them to create offers for operators, enterprises and administrations in Egypt or elsewhere. The partnering company will remain the rightful owner of its ideas and will be responsible for the applications it develops.
