GSM 3G Middle East Summit - Day 1


IMG_0486.JPGI wanted to give you a quick update on the GSM 3G Middle East Summit, which launched at the Dubai World Trade Center, with Cisco as the Summit Sponsor at the show.

The first day of the event proved to be very successful. Three senior level customer meetings were held with management teams from two customers, Cisco’s local team and our corporate mobile group. Discussions focused on IP-RAN, Core Expansions, Transport Optimization and LTE strategy for the two service providers.

Rabih Dabboussi's keynote presentation at the main conference "Strategies Leading to LTE" got great delegate feedback and reviews. The ASR 5000 and KAON demos in our booth attracted considerable interest from the delegates at the event.

Additionally, we participated in two media interviews with Network World (CPI publication) and Communications Middle East (ITP publication).

All in all, the great team effort that has been placed into this initiative from the local, theatre and corporate Cisco teams was very visible.

Paulo Pereira’s seminar presentation on "Fixed Mobile Network Convergence" is at 11am on day 2 of the Summit. A televised interview is also planned for tomorrow with Kit Beall, VP around Cisco solutions in the Mobile space.

Looking forward to more successful customer discussions tomorrow. I'll let you know what transpires.
