R&M to participate in FTTH Council MENA
Dubai-hosted event to focus on smart cities
Swiss cabling specialist R&M today announced its participation and silver sponsorship of the FTTH Council MENA Conference, to be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre on 24 and 25 November, 2014 under the patronage of the UAE's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA).
The theme for this year's edition is the Rise of the Smart Nation and R&M will deliver a presentation highlighting recent steps forward in fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), concentrating on how the approach can be used to facilitate the building of smart-city infrastructures.
"R&M has been an active player in the region and because of our well-established local presence, we are in touch with the needs of the local market," said Jean-Pierre Labry, executive vice-president, R&M Middle East, Turkey and Africa.
"By supplementing this local expertise with the extensive experience we have gained from similar FTTH deployment projects in Europe and Asia, we can assist Middle East telecom operators and key stakeholders during each critical phase of their ambitious smart city deployments."
This year's event is the sixth FTTH Council MENA Conference and will be the fifth attendance by R&M.
