As part of its participation in Capacity Middle East Conference 2022, stc Bahrain, a world-class digital enabler, and cloud infrastructure provider Radian Arc announced the deployment of a new point of presence (PoP) in the country, utilizing Radian Arc’s proprietary GPU Edge technology. This PoP will enhance stc Bahrain’s cloud services in the wider Middle East, including cloud gaming and future applications provided by Radian Arc.
Radian Arc is also partnering with cloud gaming platform Blacknut to bring their technology into the region, reinforcing stc Bahrain’s vision to offer improved and more reliable connections for cloud services. This partnership will enable access to over 400 games with low latency and faster start times in the region.
Following the rollout of cloud gaming, Radian Arc and stc Bahrain plan to bring an array of cloud-based applications to accelerate digital transformation activities in the region; such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, and Internet of Things (IOT) adoption. The availability of this robust platform ensures that these CPU-intensive applications will be offered at a fraction of the cost of a high-end machine.

This partnership guarantees our market readiness to empower users with access to emerging technologies.”Saad Odeh, Chief Wholesale Officer, stc Bahrain
