Stay tuned for more updates on this page about the exciting program we are now preparing. 

Venue: Dubai World Trade Centre

By Metro: Dubai's metro system offers a swift and convenient mode of transportation to Dubai WTC with its dedicated station. Trains operate frequently between 5 am and 11 pm, using the Nol Card for easy access. Just swipe your card at the platform entrance.

By Taxi: With over 5,300 RTA taxis available, getting to Dubai WTC is convenient. Most drivers are familiar with the area and drop-off points. You can also pre-book by calling +971 4 208 0808. Fares start at 5 AED, or 12 AED for pre-booked rides, with credit card payments accepted for added convenience.

By Car: Dubai WTC offers direct access from Sheikh Zayed Road for easy travel by car. Multiple car parks provide 7,530 spaces, including options for electric cars with charging stations.

Burj Khalifa: Standing at 828m, the Burj Khalifa is the world's tallest building and a must-visit attraction in Dubai. Located in the city center, it offers breathtaking views from the observation deck on levels 124 and 125. Don't miss the chance to dine at the At The Top Sky Lounge or experience a sunset at The Lounge, Burj Khalifa, the highest lounge in the world at 585m.

Palm Jumeirah: Palm Jumeirah, a large manmade island, boasts high-end hotels like Waldorf Astoria, Fairmont, One&Only, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, and Atlantis, The Palm. Access is easy via the monorail connecting to the mainland's tram system.

Dubai Creek: Explore Dubai's rich culture at Dubai Creek, the original settlement site of the Bani Yas tribe. Enjoy a traditional abra ride for just AED 1, the best value attraction in the city. Afterward, wander through the gold, spice, and textile souks to experience Dubai like a local.

Dubai Mall: Next to the Burj Khalifa, is the world's largest shopping and entertainment destination. With over 1,200 stores, two major department stores, and hundreds of dining options, it covers over 1 million sqm. A day may not be enough to explore all the attractions, including 150 restaurants and various fun activities.

Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood: Explore Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood in Bur Dubai, one of the oldest areas with traditional windtowers and winding alleyways by Dubai Creek. Visit SMCCU for Arabic classes, heritage tours, and mosque visits. Afterwards, take an abra boat ride to the souks across the creek.

The future of critical communications

How do you bring professional communications to your smart devices? How can you bring your radio and smart device users to same groups?

With Agnet, smart device users become part of the professional world – voice, data, video and location services are all at hand with the reliability and security that professional users expect. 

Agnet won the ‘Best MCX Solution of the Year’ award during CCW 2022 in Vienna.


IoT on the field

What can IoT and wearable solutions bring to professional users? How to integrate IoT sensors in mission-critical networks? How to provision IoT devices, users and their access to specific data efficiently and en masse?

Discover how IoT can provide better situational awareness for professional users – thus minimizing damage and improving the safety of field workers.

Learn more – watch this webinar: "IoT and AI – never before seen opportunities for public safety".

Satellite communications

How to stay in contact with your team members, however far away they are?

Learn how to use Agnet and Satcom Systems from Airbus together. Make PTT calls or stream live video from anywhere – even when there is no 3G/4G/5G network available!

TETRA evolution

How to plan your migration from narrowband radio communications to 4G/5G mission critical broadband –

What is the best way to migrate your TETRA network to broadband? What are the most efficient steps?

Build a smart roadmap for your TETRA migration: Download this white paper and avoid the most common mistakes.

Or learn how TB4 hybrid base station and Taira, a secure data center solution offer TETRA evolution towards 4G/5G.

Mobile tactical networks

In mission-critical operations, fast, reliable, and available connectivity is essential whenever and wherever the operation takes place. Mobile tactical networks are a good choice, especially in areas, where coverage and capacity can be limited. 

Mobile tactical networks can also be used with a satellite connection to build coverage and capacity in areas where a terrestrial network is not economically viable, such as mountainous or coastal areas.

Intelligent surveillance

If we imagine a water main breaks, flooding a nearby parking garage. Field commanders will need to know if anyone is in danger.

Due to poor visibility, caused by power outage, K9 – the remote-controlled robot dog is sent to the scene. It is equipped with thermal sensors, which help detect possible victims and send an alert with coordinates to the Agnet Dispatcher.

The field commanders will be better informed, and thus can send more accurate help to the scene. 

The bird's eye view

How can you improve situational awareness with high-quality imagery from satellites and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)?

Learn how Pléaides Neo – the most advanced optical constellation image services let you see the details of objects as small as 30 cm. Imagine the possibilities!

Or learn how Zephyr – the world-record-breaking UAS is capable of flying continuously for months at a time. Thanks to its reliance on solar energy, Zephyr’s flight time is carbon neutral.

Professional services
