Demand for analogue telecommunications is still going strong, according to representatives from Interquartz.

Manager Charles Williams said the company had seen increased regional demand for its telecommunications products, particularly coming from the hotel and wider hospitality industries.

"We have a range of analogue telephones for the business market - we are number two in the UK market for business phones," he said.

"We recently had a good order from Saudi Arabia where we supplied the analogue phones in the nurses' quarters of the new King Faisal hospital. We have put the phones into this [Dubai] World Trade Centre, and the Dubai Novotel and Ibis Hotels, and we also recently supplied the Fujairah Rotana Hotel with its in-room telephones."

Williams said Interquartz had a dedicate range of hospitality and hotel phones that were a premium quality with multiple features, and also competitively priced.

The company is also exhibiting its new SIP phone at GULFCOMMS - which Williams predicts will be the major standard going forward - a ‘door phone', which acts like a doorbell that rings your mobile phone when the button is pressed, and a range of USB handsets to be used with PCs for Skype or similar voice programmes.

"A lot of people don't like wearing headsets, they like the tactile feel of a handset," Williams explained.

Although conceding that digital systems would eventually replace the analogue products, Williams said demand for analogue products "is still very strong".

"There are a lot of digital products, and increasingly there is a movement towards IP, but with both digital and IP the price entry-points are very high, you have uncertainty about stability, and sometimes you have concerns about sound and voice quality," he said.

"So analogue remains the old favourite in that respect - it does what it says it does."
