The Bahrain British Business Forum (BBBF) ICT Special Interest Group held its first meeting of 2017 at the Gulf Hotel Convention Centre. ICT is the convergence of IT and Communications and this event focused strongly on the Communications aspect. The meeting was well attended with over 30 participants.
Condor Technology, Bahrain in partnership with Prysmian Group sponsored the event. Prysmian Group, the world leader in fiber optic cables, were invited to present their innovative fiber optic cabling solutions. Prysmian Group’s Kris Roberts, connectivity & FTTH specialist; Toni Nieto, Middle East telecom solution manager; and Carlos Lopez, Prysmian Telecom Director, UK presented a highly cost effective and time saving product for running fiber to the end point in high rise buildings.
Known as Verticasa, the solution is quick to deploy and ensures minimum splice points between the incoming fiber to the basement of a building and the end customer. Creating a big impact on the ICT and construction industries this advanced fiber optic cabling solution is suitable for both Inside Plant (ISP) and Outside Plant (OSP) projects.
The BBBF is a leading network of businessmen and women in Bahrain. The forum has nine Special Interest Groups (SIGs), covering oil, gas & energy, hospitality, construction, banking & financial services, ICT and legal sectors; as well as organisational effectiveness, young professionals and women in business. The SIGs offer members and guests a valuable medium for exchanging industry specific ideas and discussing issues relevant to a particular sector in a more informal setting.
