KACST Signs a Cooperation Agreement to Encourage the Localization of Internet and Data Centers

We have signed a cooperation agreement with King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) represented by Eng. Ibrahim bin Salem Al-Sadoukhi and NourNet’s CEO Eng. Amjad Abdulhafez during the second edition of LEAP. This partnership aims to encourage the localization of Internet content and services in data centers through the Saudi Internet Exchange initiative, in addition to strengthening the Kingdom’s position as a digital center in the region by supporting and developing the use of digital infrastructure and data centers in the Kingdom.

The Saudi Internet Exchange (SAIX) is a joint national initiative between KACST and the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, which aims to strengthen the technical infrastructure for communications and information technology in the Kingdom by providing services that improve the performance of the Internet and increase the number of users.
