Visual Networking Index, the focus on Africa and the Middle East

After an initial infographic dedicated to the global highlights of Cisco’s Visual Networking Index, VuBlog offers a second selection of data, this time focused on Africa and the Middle East, key areas for the telecommunications industry and the business of VueTel Italia. From now until 2020 the technological gap that separates these countries from the rest of the world will decrease, thanks to above-average growth rates. The improvement will come about as a result of the spread of the Internet among these populations, as well as the speed and volume of connections.


VueTel Italia at Capacity Middle East

VueTel Italia will participate at the 11th edition of Capacity Middle East, a Capacity Conferences event dedicated to the Middle East market. The appointment, to be held from the 1st to the 3rd of March, is an ideal opportunity for networking and establishing partnerships in a strategic area.

Telecommunications look to the Middle East

The countries of the Middle East, together with Africa, make up one of the geographical areas of greatest interest to telecommunications companies. What makes them interesting is their potential for growth, given that the markets are a long way from saturation point. They are also strategically placed, constituting an effective bridge between Europe, the Mediterranean and Asia. It is no accident that some of the most important submarine cables for data traffic from all over the world pass through the nearby Arabian Peninsula. For this reason Capacity Middle East is now a key event within the international framework of the telecommunications market, which everyone is watching carefully.

Appointment in Dubai

The 11th  edition of the meeting is scheduled be held in Dubai from the 1st to the 3rd of March 2016, and it will be expected the participation of more than 1,400 senior level executives representing more than 430 companies from 85 different countries. The agenda of the event will focus on the “gateway” role that the Middle East plays between the East and the West of the world. About the panels that will take place during the event, the one scheduled for the opening (1st of March, at 11:00) dedicated to the development of the telecommunications wholesale market in the Arabian Peninsula is the most interesting. There will also be an overall analysis of trends in the sector, in particular on the implementation of new technological solutions. For example, one of the meetings planned will be dedicated to the 5G network. All the major telecommunications operators are working to realize this network on a large scale and in close synergy with the main countries of the region. 

Internet and broadband, the Arab countries are working to bridge the gap

The Arab countries constitute a very interesting geographical area from the point of view telecommunications. Today the levels of penetration of the Internet and broadband are still low, below the world average and European or North American standards, with some exceptions. At the same time, however, growth rates and development potential are high, if supported by adequate growth strategies and investments. VuBlog presents an infographic that, based on ITU data, summarizes the current level of “connection” in Arab countries.
