At Gitex NEC will launch Mobicall, an integrated messaging solution for the mobile workforce in e.g. healthcare and hospitality sectors. MobiCall is designed to connect with a wide variety of external applications such as paging systems, nurse call systems, fire alarm systems, building management and workflow systems. NEC will promote the communication platform, its acclaimed communications server that is capable of supporting either a pure IP or converged hybrid communications network and also use this opportunity to expand its channel network across the region and share some exciting new promotions for enterprises looking to upgrade their communications systems.
Frits Neyndorff, Vice President NEC Unified Solutions, Middle-East & Africa, said, “As the second largest global player in unified communications, NEC is committed to this region and Gitex provides us with the perfect platform to showcase our innovative capabilities, share our vision for the region with our partners and show our appreciation for a market that contributes to our continued success. Being joined by other NEC divisions, helps us (NEC) to highlight the breadth and depth of products and solutions we can offer enterprises in the region.”
NEC will furthermore preview its latest LCD Video Wall solution in the form of the NEW X462UN that features a number of upgrades over the X461UN model, including white edge compensation, and NEC proprietary technology that improves white edge performance giving improved visual performance.
“The improvements to this top of the range of our video wall product will give our customers even more compelling reasons to choose NEC,” pointed out Ian Gobey, GM NEC Display Solutions MEA. “This product line has been extremely successful in the past 12 months for us region wide and we want to capitalise on our position by providing consistent improvements and innovation.”
In addition to this, selected models from an extensive range of professional display solutions will also be on show. With the growing need for displays for HLS (homeland security), control rooms, pro-displays for education and retail and display technologies for the transportation segment NEC is ideally placed to meet the needs of the market, offering LCD and LED display solutions. NEC will also share a first preview of the new range of Ultra Short throw projectors aimed specifically at the education segment and NEW M Series projectors for education and business users, both new model ranges have a comprehensive range of features to meet a wide range of customer needs.

NEC will be represented at Gitex by interFRONTIERS, its business development unit for the Middle East, Africa and South-Eastern Europe.
