First-time GULFCOMMS exhibitor Mikrotik is showing off router software and hardware that it says offers carrier-class routing and network management solutions to clients around the world.
The firm currently has more than 200 worldwide distributors and resellers, including partners in Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and it hopes to increase its coverage of the region further as a result of its participation at this year's show.
"Our goal is to make existing internet technologies faster, more powerful and affordable to a wider range of users," says Product Manager Janis Jankovskis.
Existing and potential customers, which include ISPs, individual users and companies in attendance at the show, will be able to see the firm's latest software and hardware products.
Jankovskis says that Mikrotik's market share in the Middle East region is constantly increasing and hasn't showed any signs of slowdown.
"We believe that there is great business potential and that's one of the main reasons why Mikrotik has decided to participate in GULFCOMMS for the first time this year," he says.
Jankovskis says that the company's key products include RouterOS, a router operating system, and software that turns a regular Intel PC or MikroTik RouterBOARD hardware into a dedicated router.
"Also, we are demonstrating our new RouterBOARD hardware models with USB and miniPCI express slots for 3G connections and many other exciting features," he says.
Jankovskis adds that GULFCOMMS is the ideal event to make contact with end users and decision makers in IT companies in the Middle East.
