US-based technology provider Intel has inaugurated the region’s first Centre of Excellence for Wireless Applications (CEWA) in partnership with Saudi Arabia’s King Abduziz City for Science and Technology (KACST). The move is in line with Intel’s plans to expand its digital transformation initiative for the Middle East. The centre is aimed at offering expertise and consultative services to operators, governments, vendors and regulators to drive wireless applications and provide performance labs to evaluate and optimise wireless networks.
