Nexans Cabling Solutions has launched a range of products and solutions at GITEX Technology Week. This includes its latest snap-in patch panels as well as a new concept in LANsense upgradeable panels. The company has also unveiled its latest GG45 8-contact jack for PCB mount.

The company is showcasing an array of LAN infrastructure solutions at its stand during the show.

"Nexans always designs products keeping our customers in mind and we believe that the GITEX show is the best place to launch these products for the region," says Tarek Helmy, regional director for the Gulf and Middle East at Nexans. "We have had quite a few visitors at the stand over the last three days from all over the region. This week-long exhibition presents the best opportunity to meet them"

The cabling vendor is exhibiting at GITEX for the first time with a stand of its own, while previously it was present through partners. According to Helmy, the company is also using the opportunity this time to meet with its various partners and enterprise customers.

"We are looking to expand our presence in the region which involves taking on new partners in the markets that we can cover more extensively. We are on the lookout for distributors to represent Nexans in Saudi Arabia, Oman and Qatar and we are meeting them at GITEX," says Helmy.

The company is in the final stages of discussion with key distributors in Saudi Arabia and Oman and hopes to finalise partnership agreements for these countries in the next few days.

Nexans also intends to open a local competence centre which will provide first and second levels of support to its partners and customers in the region.

"Previously all support was directed to our European support centre. By opening a local centre we will build additional confidence in partners and end-users on our committment to the Middle East," adds Helmy.

It will also be adding to its business development and technical staff in the Middle East. The company aims to add staff and open the centre by the first half of 2008.
