Bandar Seri Begawan - The Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) has set up a pavilion at the Brunei TechXpo 2012 launched today. As Brunei's leading telecommunication regulator and ICT industry promoter, AITI said the pavilion aims to promote public awareness on its roles, programmes and initiatives.
The public will know more about AITI's telecommunications regulatory role through its licensing, radio frequency planning and management as well as type of approved exhibits. The regulatory function of AITI has helped to ensure that all telecommunication service providers operate within the assigned frequency to minimise interference. Meanwhile, licenced dealers and type of approved equipment such as mobile phones are regulated by AITI to ensure consumers' interest and safety are taken care of.
Companies and businesses can find out more about the AITI grant scheme, ICT Accredited Business (ICTAB) and ICT Competency Programme at the AITI Pavilion.
On the international front, AITI will display information on the Brunei ICT Award (BICTA), Asia Pacific ICT Alliance (APICTA) Award, Asean ICT Award and ASEAN CIO Forum, where AITI plays a part in organising these prestigious events.
One key exhibit, which will be showcased at the AITI Pavilion, is the vast potential of the Fibre to the Home (FTTH) project. FTTH offers high speed and large bandwidth that can cater to media rich applications such as High Definition Interactive TV and videoconferencing among others.
The public will be able to witness the high-definition content on a Smart TV connected to the FTTH network. As a forward-looking organisation, AITI knows that its most valuable asset is the AITI staff. Testimonies from them will also be displayed and AITI will also be listing job opportunities as it sets to expand next year.
Members of the public can look forward to a quiz cum lucky draw "AITI Guess" and stand a chance to win attractive prizes. The first prize will be an iPad Mini, the second prize a PS3 Slim 250GB and the third prize a Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos.
