Your company will be in Security Forum for the first time. Which are the goals do you attend in this professional event?
From our point of view, Security Forum 2018 is an unbeatable environment to present the position of the ADTEL Group in the security sector. Last April the incorporation of AB Seguridad into the ADTEL Group was agreed. With this new incorporation, the group’s capabilities are reinforced in a very important way. AB Seguridad is a company located
in Terrasa and which has been operating in the security sector for 30 years, offering solutions in the field of protection against intrusion, access control, fire protection, video surveillance and integration of security systems. ADTEL celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, showing a consolidated growth trajectory in the telecommunications and audiovisual sectors. The union of both companies allows to take advantage of the convergence of technologies in the field of security, and to offer a greater capacity of services and solutions both to the AB Security clients and those of ADTEL.
From a innovation and technologic point of view of , what will Grupo ADTEL present in the Security Forum 2018?
We will take advantage of the event to present the latest developments in Hytera digital trunking radio technology, used by clients such as Barcelona City Council and Barcelona Metro, and especially the new DMR / TETRA / LTE hybrid terminals. «The market calls for the latest technology in security but with professional service» Also mobile video surveillance solutions aimed at security bodies and emergencies with customers such as Mossos d’Esquadra and 112 of the Community of Madrid, AirVoice wireless public address systems used in many beaches of the Spanish coast, and latest technologies for video analysis and bus resources in anti-intrusion systems and fire detection systems.
What business and commercial strategy has your company set for this year?
In recent years we clearly appreciate that the market demands the benefits that the latest security technology offers, but always together with a certified professional service level
and high availability. The productive and commercial sectors will continue to need to improve their security systems as part of the technology that allows them to serve their business. On the other hand, customers classified as critical infrastructures will also need to invest in improving their security systems. ADTEL and AB Seguridad have a set of clients and services very
complementary, so that cross-selling will improve the results of both companies.
Since a professional vision, how do you imagine the future of the security sector from the field of technology and innovation?
As in all economic and social sectors, the convergence between telecommunications networks and security systems, in a completely IP environment, will continue to be the greatest trend in the field of security. This also has a democratizing effect, since even the smallest customers and individuals access security systems that were traditionally only available to customers with greater resources.
Security Forum reaches its sixth edition, how would you rate the event as an annual reference for the security sector?
We think that the trajectory of the event has consolidated it as a reference point of reference in the national market. The ADTEL Group participates for the first time in this edition, but surely we can accompany the Security Forum on a path of mutual progress in future editions.
