Batelco Welcomes Ericsson Team at Bahrain International Airshow 2010
Batelco, as a major sponsor of the Bahrain International Airshow 2010 (BIAS 2010), is delighted to welcome representatives from Ericsson who are in Bahrain to attend the three day event.
This invitation follows the long standing partnership between both companies. For more than 30 years, Ericsson has been a key partner in providing Batelco with innovative telecommunications solutions. Head of Ericsson Middle East Bo Erik Dahlström together with a number of Ericsson executives will be in attendance at the Batelco Chalet during the airshow.
“We have built a solid relationship with Ericsson over three decades and today their contribution to our successful delivery is just as invaluable as it has always been,” said Batelco Group Chief Executive Peter Kaliaropoulos.
“Ericsson provides us with more than just technical support; they also have the expertise and experience to implement the right kind of processes to complete complex projects in a timely and efficient manner. We rate very highly their partnership which allowed us to upgrade to a 3.5G mobile network last year,” he added.
Mr. Dahlström said that Ericsson’s partnership with Batelco was a real partnership success story.
“Working alongside skilled Batelco personnel, with the cooperation of Batelco’s executive management has always been the key to a strong partnership that has grown into a real success story that we are proud of,” he said.
During the show, Ericsson will demonstrate an innovative Mobile E-Healthcare solution, which enables remote patient monitoring, thus improving quality of life as well as reducing cost of managing patients.
In addition, Ericsson will also showcase the energy efficient technology Tower Tube, which not only uses air flow for cooling, but also provides environment protection and is an investment in the future as an energy efficient alternative to deliver today’s broadband needs.
Besides Ericsson personnel, a number of VIP guests from the government and business communities will be in attendance at the Batelco Chalet during the event.
