Regional network managers are willing to invest in new, advanced technologies that will deliver tangible benefits to their operations, according to research conducted by value added networking distributor, Online Distribution. There has been rapid growth in acceptance of laser optimised multimode fibre as an alternative to traditional multimode and single mode fiber and, to keep pace with the increased demand, cabling majors like Corning and Ortronics have opened offices in the region. This reinforces their commitment to the region and offers customers valuable technical support.

"Network infrastructure is a major area of growth in Middle East," said Venu Menon, Director, OnLine Distribution. "IT professionals have learned from experience with existing networks that they must have the best connectivity infrastructure to realise the full potential of their network. Especially when it calls for data intensive applications. Managers now view high quality cabling as an excellent investment rather than just a necessary cost."
