Demonstrations at du’s stand are highlighting how connectivity will facilitate the UAE’s 2021 Vision and the ways in which innovative Information Communications Technology (ICT) solutions can be used to create a Smart environment.
Fahad Al Hassawi, Chief Commercial Officer at du, says: “The future is all about a hyper connected society in which Smart technologies make everyone’s lives simpler, convenient and happier – by enabling everyone access to unprecedented e-services. Our GITEX 2014 showcases these technologies, unlocking human potential to the fullest. I invite everyone to visit us and get a first-hand experience of these never-before seen technologies which have the potential to dramatically change the way we live, work and play. For years, GITEX has been the ideal platform for us to share innovation with our customers and the people of the UAE, while exploring the latest trends in the ICT world. We are very pleased to be participating in GITEX again this year, and look forward to the opportunities that the event will present,” he says.
The telecoms provider is working closely with the UAE’s government departments, small and medium enterprises and the community itself, to enable the creation of customised applications and connectivity solutions that will empower people in the Smart future.
du believes that the core of the UAE’s Smart future is dependent upon the reliability of its connectivity solutions.
