Specialist networking distributor Duxbury Networking will participate in the MyBroadband Conference at Gallagher Estate on 9 October 2013, showing a range of connectivity products and solutions on its stand.

The company’s exhibits will centre on the latest broadband Internet access offerings including ADSL routers and modems for wireless applications – in particular the latest wi-fi certified IEEE 802.11ac devices designed to deliver data rates up to twice as fast as a typical 802.11n network.

Devices from vendors such as Netgear and 2N featuring powerline communication technologies designed to optimise electrical wiring infrastructures for data transmission will also be showcased.

According to Andy Robb, chief technology officer at Duxbury Networking, a number of products from vendors new to the South African market will be demonstrated, including the latest broadband customer premises equipment from ZTE, the global leader in the CPE sector.

“Worldwide, CPE device shipments totalled 144.9 million units last year [2012],” he says. “ZTE currently holds 14% of the market. The nearest competitor holds an 8% share.”

Robb adds that continuous growth in broadband adoption in South Africa can be expected, with upgrades driven by demand for better quality services among existing as well as new broadband users.
