Top telecom players for Gitex symposium
Dubai, September 15, 2011
The Gitex Technology Week telecom symposium to be held in Dubai on October 10 and 11 will bring together international and regional authorities who will share their knowledge.
As the Middle East prepares to roll out the next generation of Long Term Evolution (LTE) and 4G telecoms technology, the implications for the industry and consumers are vast.
Experts at the event will provide insights into the lessons of the past, issues of today and the possibilities of the future, said a statement.
They will address mobile communications, advent of 4G, WLANs, regulatory issues, new internet and hardware technologies, and the potential of new forms of telecommunications architecture from both a commercial and academic scope.
The Gitex Telecom Symposium will take place in Sheikh Maktoum Hall, Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, and will features global experts targeting the issues surrounding today’s key telecoms issues and the scope of the regulatory environment within a local and worldwide context.
Day one will include case studies, thought leader presentations and round table discussions, while the second day will feature a panel discussion of operator and service providers, providing the audience with dedicated question and answer sessions through in-depth dialogue, the statement said.
Day two will focus on a series of networking sessions and panel debates on some of the key industry issues including, ‘Data applications are flooding 3G networks- will 4G exacerbate the problem?’
Olivier Campenon, president, British Telecom EMEA said: “Telecom operators and their strategies into infrastructure investment are engines for growth in emerging economies. It is therefore of critical importance for the operators to stay at the forefront of global trends and spearhead innovation into new services and solutions.”
“As the oldest telco in the world, BT has a wealth of know-how in how to capitalise on the market potential and I am excited about sharing and collecting new ideas at the Gitex Telecom Symposium,” he said.
Gitex 2011 will introduce brand new elements to reinforce its position as the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia region's leading 'finger on the pulse' technology event. As one of the three largest ICT exhibitions in the world, the show connects more than 136,000 industry professionals from five continents with over 3,500 suppliers, and is one of the most influential and high-profile events in the global ICT sector today. – TradeArabia News Service
