Structured connectivity solutions vendor Systimax is opening a ‘Solutions Centre’ in Dubai — one of only three such centres in the entire EMEA region. Systimax hopes the centre will raise its profile in the Middle East and strengthen its relationships with channel partners.Craig Doyle, major accounts manager at Systimax, said: 'The Middle Eastern region is one of the fastest growing regions in the world. The opening of this new facility affirms our commitment to the region and will strengthen our position. It will also enable us to provide greater value to our customers.”
“The Solutions Centre will serve as a focal point for Systimax’s end users, industry consultants and business partners,” he continued. “It will give them a place to learn first-hand about the end-to-end connectivity solutions — copper, fibre, patching and wireless offerings — that we believe will enable customers to increase productivity, reduce costs and smooth the way for cost-effective, reliable migration to next generation IT requirements. Visitors will also have the opportunity to learn about industry trends and technical standards.”
The centre will allow visitors to view new technology demonstrations including the Systimax Gigaspeed X10D Solution demonstration, the iPatch and VisiPatch systems, cabling solutions, and fibre connectivity solutions.
Wes Tweedley, regional technical director at Systimax, added: “Our primary audience is consultants and end users, but their information requirements are quite different. Consultants are more concerned about trends, current industry issues and the development of technical standards. End users, on the other hand, will ultimately focus on the commercial proposition, especially their return on investment. The Solutions Centre will accommodate both and with the world's largest real-time infrastructure (iPatch) installation currently under construction in Saudi Arabia, we expect that additional demand for real-time infrastructure patching will grow dramatically over the next few years.”
“Our ability to present the iPatch System story will be crucial and will enable us to extend our reach and provide even greater value to our customers throughout the region,” he concluded.
Systimax Solutions is is a recognized IP Communications Partner member under the Cisco Technology Developer Program. It is supported by over 1,000 people in over 100 countries and supplies over 1,000 miles of cable every day to some of the world’s leading companies.
