While many of the companies exhibiting at CABSAT were well established, the show also presented an opportunity for start-ups to presents their offering to the market.
One example was CableTech MEA, a new cable distributor that used CABSAT to officially introduce itself to the market.
The company started operations in Dubai at the beginning of 2015 and operates as a supplier of high equipment and material for broadcast, audio and video industries.
Percon, Neutrik, Furukawa Electric Group, Lemo, AVP, Optral, Opticis and Schill are among the brands distributed by CableTech and its products were on show at the event.
But CableTech has its sights set on more than just distribution. The company has developed a fibre optics laboratory. During the exhibition the company conducted several demonstrations regarding cable assemblies at its booth in Hall 2.
Siarhei Chaika, sales executive at CableTech MEA, explained the assembly process. He said that cable assemblies are designed according to geometric and electrical requirements, which are translated into a diagram that is used in the preparation and assembly of the harness. Once the construction is finished, technicians test the finished cable assembly with electrical test equipment. All the technicians at CableTech underwent several trainings and gained an extensive experience within the industry.
“CableTech as a new company comes at a critical time when the fibre infrastructure is necessary for a highly demanding market. CableTech fulfills a role of the specialist that will be able to satisfy all the cable assembly for all different types of market segment,” Chaika said.
