The biggest IT show in Romania, CERF2008, took place last week at ROMEXPO facilities in Bucharest. I arrived late on Saturday from Barcelona (some pictures here), so I could pay a visit in the last day of the event.
It looked a bit smaller for me than last year. I was focused on communications technologies, and, apart of the big mobile operators and telco here (Romtelecom, Vodafone, Orange, Cosmote) having large exhibition area, very noisy, advertising latest services, giving gifts a.s.o., the companies came with interesting solutions and hardware to demo and present.I could find several distributors for the major VoIP vendors, especially for phones and SOHO routers: Zyxel, Snom, Polycom, Linksys, DrayTek, Siemens. I can say I was satisfied by the show, comparing with last years, the Open Source seems more popular, the companies offering VoIP solutions, although they might be from other vendors, they do know about Asterisk or Kamailio (OpenSER).
