«Fiber to the People: Creating a bright digital future for Cyprus»
The fast development of new networking technologies, as a result of the increasing convergence of telecommunications, computing and digital Media, brings radical changes to financial models of development, especially in Services and Commerce. At the same time, the competitiveness of a State in today’s digital environment is directly related to the existence of advanced New Generation networking infrastructures, with high capacity and effectiveness, rationally developed and priced, that can offer easy, secure and uninterrupted access, and at the same time can be a vehicle to the Gigabit Society.
Cyprus, despite its significant progress in the coverage of landline high-speed communication networks, as well as the penetration of landline and mobile broadband communications, it still rates low in the DESI index, occupying the 21st place among the 28 participants in the E.U. However, going above the European average, and presenting constantly improving values in several specific indexes, shows that bridging the digital gap between the island and the rest of the world within the next few years, is something visible.
At the same time, further development of fiber-optics broadband networks and wireless high-speed and superfast networks on the entire island, can lead to innovation and improvement of Health, Governance, e-Banking and Education services, through utilization of rising and advanced technologies. In the meantime, the ICT transformation in Cyprus moves on to a completely digital era, as a milestone to a better future for all the citizens and businesses based on the island.
Office Line will be sponsoring the 10th INFOCOM CY conference and will analyze why Digital Transformation is not just a trend, but a series of activities focused around innovation, combining the benefits of technology with a wider change of mentality, to significantly contribute to every level of modern business operation. All these topics will be presented through our CEO’s Panagiotis Kouris, speaking slot, titled «The digital twin for the win».
