The Kenton Group Joins Key Speakers at Broadband MEA

Managing Director John Larkin explains how copper networks can help rural broadband

The Kenton Group today announces that it will join a host of top industry representatives at the Rural Broadband Summit at this year’s Broadband MEA, the region’s premier broadband event. The company’s Managing Director, John Larkin, will throw a spotlight on copper networks, exploring how they can enhance rural broadband in the MEA.

The Kenton Group, which is sponsoring the Rural Broadband Summit, has over 30 years’ experience designing and developing network access and connection products and solutions for carriers, operators, service providers, enterprise and government throughout the UK and EMEA, so is well placed to speak about rural broadband.

John Larkin’s presentation – Unleash the Potential of Your Copper Network for Rural Broadband – will include an overview of the problem, the market potential, the challenges faced and the solutions that can cost effectively meet demand in the region. He says: “Rural broadband is a major issue for the MEA region and one that governments and industry players are addressing. By exploring our ideas and solutions, we’re taking another step forward in helping the territory achieve connectivity and true broadband services.”

John Larkin has held senior positions in both the UK and Middle East for a number of major manufacturers and suppliers including Siemens and Marconi. He has an unprecedented track record of developing and delivering growth through effective sales and marketing communications, business partnership development, team building and mentoring.

“We’re proud to be sponsoring such a prestigious event,” comments John Larkin. “Broadband MEA provides a vital platform for key players in the industry to come together to address important issues around the accessibility and deployment of broadband in rural areas of the MEA region.”

Broadband MEA will take place on 25 – 27 March at The Westin Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina, Dubai, UAE, providing networking, learning and business development opportunities to over 1,000 decision makers looking to do business and stimulate the growth of broadband in the Middle East and Africa.
