CABSAT 2002 in Dubai to have strong UK presence

At least 20 British broadcast, cable, satellite and telecom companies will participate in the eighth Middle East International Cable, Satellite, Broadcast & Telecommunications Exhibition (CABSAT 2002) from 5-7 March.

Organised by the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) at its exhibition complex, CABSAT 2002 will offer a platform for companies and professionals across the world to make inroads into the west Asian market.

The UK pavilion at the CABSAT 2002 will include Motorola, one of the world's leading mobile phone providers, which recently launched its Global Packet Radio Service (GPRS)-enabled mobile handsets in west Asia and North Africa. The GPRS service with new digital compression techniques enhances data transfer speeds more than ten times as compared to GSM technology.

Rydex/CDT, manufacturers of telecommunication and data network cable for switching, transmission and wireless applications will exhibit their latest protocol and exchange equipment.
