Connecting at Gitex!

Last week, I attended the Gitex tradeshow in Dubai.  There are a lot of different sections to the tradeshow but overall, the show is huge.   The telecommish section is like a mini Mobile World Congress for the Middle East.  In fact, when I went into the booth section, I could have easily been at Mobile World Congress.

Etisalat, STC and Du dominated the floor space as you might expect.

I would say there were three main themes:

1. LTE.  The need for speed dominates here.

2. Cloud.  This is a big theme as well.  The delivery of enterprise telecom services via the cloud is no longer a thing of the future.

3. Video Conferencing Services.  I saw many vendors showing and demoing these services, including telepresence-like solutions.  The demos were good and made them feel “real” to anyone watching.

 This is definitely a great place to do business and I expect I’ll be returning here again.
