quality and highest performance wireless products in the market,

a seal of approval to indicate to end users that these products
are compatible to the Etisalat Network and work seamlessly.

to a high level of technical standards. U.S. Robotics will always
go the extra mile to provide its customers with sound products."
Type approval comes through a variety of rigorous testing procedures
to ensure technical products conform to the requirements and technical
standards put forth by Etisalat and the Emirates Internet and Multimedia
(EIM) Services Conditions.
