Oman International Trade & Exhibition’s COMEX 2015 will focus this year, on new and emerging trends in the IT, telecommunications and technology space, one of these being fiber optics. Oman Fiber Optics (OFO), a leading manufacturer of fiber optics in the region, has signed up as the Platinum Sponsor. OFO deploys state of the art technology to draw fiber and manufacture world class fiber cable products in Oman.
COMEX 2015 has also received support from The Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Council Middle East and North Africa as a Supporting Association. The FTTH council MENA is an industry organization with a mission to accelerate FTTH adoption by all broadband stakeholders through information and promotion, in order to accelerate the availability of fiber-based, ultra-high-speed access networks to consumers and businesses.
The market for optical fiber cable is a critical piece of the broader optical components pie. Its installation is also the most labor-intensive part of the network, particularly for underground and undersea connections. Optical fiber cable is an integral component in the global move to broadband. Statistics indicate that optical fiber production should increase from 147 million kilometers of fiber in 2011 to 204 million in 2017.
According to recent study by FTTH Council, MENA, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Oman are significant and dynamic markets for Fiber to the home and businesses. The study also shows that new housing programs, national plans, cloud services, mobile backhaul, digital cities and higher competition are among the drivers of FTTH market in the MENA region. If you are already working in these sectors or planning to enter then COMEX will be a platform that will give you relevant exposure.
