Covid’s restrictions have finally eased and so we were able to attend several conferences and exhibitions in the first half of this year and after a two-year gap we were finally able to meet our customers face to face.
In March, we were in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for the UTCAL Summit 2022. UTCAL brings together leaders from energy companies with representatives from regulators, research institutes, industry, suppliers and key domestic and international experts.
This year, in addition to our booth at UTCAL, we delivered two presentations: ‘Reliable Communication in SCADA Networks with Next Generation IP Radio Modems’ and ‘High Performance Radio Networks’. Both were well attended and met with excellent response.
In May we had a booth at Distributech in Dallas, USA. Although the event was postponed from its original January date to May, this did not affect attendance. Our booth was busy all the time with both existing and new customers and our experts were occupied from morning to night. Traditionally, customers from Latin America also travel to Distributech, so we took the opportunity to meet our major distributors from Mexico and Brazil.
In June we attended two events — Futuretec in the Czech Republic and ‘RACOM in Morocco’.
Futuretec is a traditional conference for Czech ISPs. We have traditionally attended this conference, and in addition to our booth, we also have presentations. This year we talked about the status of development of our new link for the 80 GHz band, for which the Czech market is eagerly waiting, so it is no wonder that the hall was filled to the last seat. The second, purely technical, presentation ‘How to run >50 PtP Gigabit FDD links in freebands’ attracted a large number of listeners too.
RACOM’s Radio modems and Cellular routers are also successful in the North African market, so in June we organised a two-day event together with our partner in Morocco, inviting local customers. In addition to representatives of our traditional customer, RADEEF, the electricity distributor, representatives of other energy companies and other businesses also came to Casablanca, and we are confident that the number of our products installed in Morocco and surrounding countries will continue to grow.
