"Strong network infrastructure is the key for businesses in the Philippines." That is what Panduit said during its Solution City Roadshow held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

The known leader in infrastructure solutions around the globe, through its Managing Director and Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific Harry Woo, shared its sentiments and cited the importance of a robust network infrastructure among businesses in the Philippines. Panduit's ability to compete well with its counterparts in the Southeast Asian region should be supported by the presence of infrastructures that are meant for high-speed and reliable connectivity.

“In recent years, the Philippines has emerged as the fastest growing economy in Southeast Asia because of its strong and resilient businesses that attract investments from industries all over the world,” said Woo. “But businesses should constantly assess and develop their ICT (information and communication technology) strategies to thrive in the demanding and ever-evolving market, especially in light of the ASEAN integration.”

At present, the Philippines is the preferred investment destination for the IT-BPM firms, and Panduit expects major growth trends in the industry, which also means of creating greater demands in several industries like animation and game development, contact centers and BPOs, health information management, and information technology and software development. The BPO sector in the country accounts for 12.6% of global market and is expected to have a 6.5-7.5% growth by the end of the year.

As part of being the market leader for network infrastructure business in the country, Panduit also offers solutions that help local businesses meet the needs of the growing industry by introducing its newest product, the OM5 Signature Core, an advanced OM5 fiber solution and part of its expansive line of fiber solutions.
