IP EXPO launches in SA

August 2011 News

A new technology show is being launched to help businesses capitalise on the growing volume and falling costs of international bandwidth to gain a competitive advantage.

As more undersea cables and satellites boost Africa’s bandwidth, smart companies can introduce new systems and applications to keep a step ahead of their rivals. The exhibitors, speakers and analysts supporting IP EXPO on 15 and 16 November will show them exactly how to do that.

IP EXPO has been running successfully in the UK since 2006. Now the organiser, Imago Techmedia, has teamed up with local event specialists Montgomery Africa to bring the show to South Africa. A number of key organisations have already confirmed their involvement including Aastra Telecom, VMware, Intel, Telkom, Motorola, CommVault, Westcon, Citrix, Mitel Networks, Veeam and Oracle.

It will focus specifically on Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure, virtualisation and cloud computing. It aims to make those complex technologies easy to understand and even easier to deploy by creating an environment where enterprise end users can meet the experts in a two-day consulting experience.

Three stages at IP EXPO will host 48 seminars over the two days, covering topics such as virtualisation, data centre management, business continuity, mobility and wireless, unified communications, and the underlying network infrastructure. Other sessions will explain how to apply the technologies to specific fields such as the security market and identity management systems.

Local speakers will include Arthur Goldstuck, the managing director of research house World Wide Worx, who will present the research findings on the potential for IP networks, cloud computing and virtualisation, commissioned specifically for the event. Hi-Tech Security Solutions’ editor, Andrew Seldon will be hosting a debate on the second day. [Not to be missed! Ed.]

IP EXPO has become the biggest IT infrastructure and business communications show in the UK, says Hugh Keeble, managing director of Imago Techmedia. It aims to achieve the same success in South Africa, with plans to replicate the exhibition and speaker programme in other African countries as they also begin to enjoy the benefits of additional bandwidth.
