ITC's two international gateways are connected to ITC's 17,000-kilometer Saudi National Fiber Network (SNFN), an independent, state-of-the-art fiber optic network connecting all major cities in the Kingdom. SNFN offers massive bandwidth capacity, allowing ITC to meet all its current and future capacity and growth needs.
This next-generation network supports massive capacities in multiples of 10 Gbps and is considered as the perfect choice for any new or virtual operator looking for a highly reliable, highly redundant and robust backbone for its services.

ITC owns and operates two landing stations in Jeddah and Al Khobar. These international gateways provide international connectivity to RoW through Reliance and connectivity to Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan, the U.A.E., Bahrain and , Oman, London and Hong Kong through terrestrial cables. For added redundancy, our Al Khobar landing station is also connected to our Jeddah landing station.
ITC has signed a 15-year IRU contract with Reliance Globalcom to connect ITC with Falcon terabyte marine cable. Marine cables have a life cycle of 25 years.
ITC also operates 9 metro-fiber rings connecting all major cities in Saudi Arabia. Using the latest SDH and DWDM technologies, these next-generation fiber rings provide extremely fast connectivity for all cities in the Kingdom, culminating in a diversified range of last-mile access media.
ITC access media are based on top-of-the-line SDH and DWDM technologies for extremely fast data transfers, delivering high-quality local and international telecom services, including VoIP services, and helping ensure robust FTTx connectivity Kingdom wide.
17,000 km of fiber rings inside and around Riyadh, Dammam, Al-Khobar and Jeddah through which commercial buildings, education and health facilities, banks, government departments, and enterprises' offices are connected. Broadband Internet access to tenants of all connected buildings. On demand video conferencing & value-added services.
ITC offers microwave point-to-point wireless technology for voice, video and data transfer.
To diversify its different access media and extend its reach, ITC decided to adopt the latest wireless technologies that offer broadband access to mass markets. In addition to WiFi and Microwave, ITC selected the WIMAX technology and started deploying WiMAX base stations in all major cities to reach the non served areas and to serve the clients who have bandwidth and quality requirements that could not be met.
The bandwidth and reach of WiMAX make it suitable for the following potential applications:
VSAT stands for Very Small Aperture Terminal. VSAT network utilizes different satellite access technologies, modulation, coding schemes and/or asymmetrical circuit configurations to provide Point to Point or Point to Multipoint connection(s) to deliver data, voice or digital video signals.The service provides connectivity in areas where terrestrial networks either not available or not capable of meeting customer's any specific requirement.
