Alan Dick builds upon its strong foundations

While Alan Dick, a global specialist in communications infrastructure, has spent much time and effort designing radio antennas that are disguised as trees, flagpoles and even mosque minarets in a bid to deflect attention from the towers, it is spending its time at GULFCOMMS to the opposite effect.

While Alan Dick, a global specialist in communications infrastructure, has spent much time and effort designing radio antennas that are disguised as trees, flagpoles and even mosque minarets in a bid to deflect attention from the towers, it is spending its time at GULFCOMMS to the opposite effect.

Indeed, with a radio tower standing proudly at the centre of its stand, the company is drawing maximum attention to its latest products and innovations. Sean Bryan, general manager for Alan Dick in the Middle East, says GULFCOMMS provides an opportunity to meet with clients, raise awareness and look for new business.

"We are showcasing the full range of products and services that Alan Dick has to offer. Our strongest focus will be on cellular network rollout, which is at peak levels within the GCC at the moment," Bryan says. "Alan Dick offers years of rollout experience and expertise to new telecom license holders to help them roll out the most efficient and cost effective network in a short space of time."

He adds that the second main focus is on the company's new Rapid Deployment Unit, which is a permanent cell site that can be deployed in less than six hours. A model of the RDU is on show at Alan Dick's stand and a full size unit is located in the company's Jebel Ali facility, Bryan says, adding that tours to the site can be arranged during GULFCOMMS.

But despite the communications infrastructure kit on display, Alan Dick's aims at GULFCOMMS are remarkably down to earth, and Bryan insists that the company is mainly intent on engaging with new and existing customers, as well as showcasing its product portfolio.
