On the Road at UTC Telecom & Technology 2017
Another trade show in the books! Sinclair Technologies exhibited at the UTC Telecom & Technology trade show last week in Charlotte, North Carolina. Both Sal (Director of Sales, USA) and Cyndi (Western Sales Manager, USA) attended the show and said that it was a good event with lots of great energy. The UTC trade show brings together thousands of information and communications technology (ICT) professionals and partners. Its focus is to bring education to the masses and to spread innovative ideas throughout the industry. It is a key show in the Utilities market and Sinclair’s trade show circuit. Not only is it an educational conference, it’s also one heck of a networking event! Many new and existing customers stopped by the booth including MiMOMax Wireless Ltd, Talley, Duke Energy, and Siemens. It was great to meet an array of customers and partners!
According to Sinclair’s Director of Sales USA, Sal Farina, there was lots of interest in SCADA networks. He said “…customers were asking for products such as MIMO antennas and Yagi antennas that could be used in conjunction with SCADA networks. SCADA networks help the utilities market forecast and meet future customer needs as it collects data such as usage rates and consumption from the user.” Sal also mentioned that there was considerable interest in Sinclair’s 700/800 MHz antennas, especially with the new roll out of the 700 MHz A Block. Other popular industry trends seen at UTC were drones, smart meters, and troubleshooting equipment for outage restoration and asset management.
Over 200 companies exhibited at UTC Telecom & Technology trade show and thousands attended. Attendees were from all over the utilities market ranging from electric, water, and gas utilities. Overall it was a great networking event and it provided great exposure for Sinclair Technologies. Thank you UTC for another great show. We hope to see you in Palm Springs in 2018!
