Lebanese-based Libanica is returning to Gitex for the second time, hoping to find some new clients, as well as meeting up with some old faces from last year’s show. ‘We saw a lot of benefits from attending the show last year, so we had high expectations for this year and we have not been disappointed,” comments Alper Atakul, manager, Libanica. “We have made some good contacts with new clients, as well as catching up with our existing customers,” he adds. The company, which has a branch in Dubai under the care of Grey Corporation, deals in bandwidth management and networking applications. At its stand at Gitex, the company has been evaluating visitors’ systems and networks in order to advise them on the best solution for their needs. Libanica is also showcasing Packeteer’s PacketSeeker, an application intelligent traffic-monitoring application, which it is a distributor for. The system gives visibility for network utilisation and application performance, as well as providing a path for fixing problems. The PacketSeeker Layer 7, which is on display at Libanica’s stand, is also able to identify hundreds of applications in order to identify the source of any performance problems. These usually emerge at bandwidth-constrained WAN and internet links. “This product is one of the best on the market at the moment,” comments Atakul. “It can be difficult to determine exactly how your network is being utilised by competing applications, and how that is impacting on your business critical applications. However, Packeteer provides a basis for achieving these goals and finding any problems,” he adds. The traffic monitoring appliance is available in five different series ranging from 2 Mbps up to 500 Mbps. It is able to analyse network behaviour including the link-level intelligence that is classified by framerelay, ATM PVC, IP subnet, MPLS paths, Ethernet MAC and VLANS. “This product is already quite popular in the Middle East and we have a number of clients in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon,” says Atakul. “However, we now want to broaden this base across the rest of the Gulf and we see the UAE as a great place to find lots of customers and new business,” he continues. “Gitex is a great place to meet people and see what other innovations in technology there are, as such we will definitely be coming back next year,” he adds.
