Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is an important field, though not everyone is familiar with what it is and why it is important. This is mostly because ICT is not geared for general consumers, rather it is for businesses and organizations, which can have profound effects in streamlining communications for the general public. In line with this, STAR, Inc. and TP-Link have partnered together to boost ICT in the country.
Star Telecom Alliance Resources, Inc. (STAR, Inc.), parent company of smart devices brand Starmobile, recently held a road show officially introducing its distribution partnership with network solutions company TP-LINK to the country’s top system integrators. As part of their partnership, the Filipino company will carry TP-Link’s latest routers, APs, switches, and other internet-of-things devices in the country. The event, titled “ICT in a Time of Change,” also saw the company strengthening its commitment to boost the Philippines’ information, communications, and technology industry by making industry-leading tech products and services accessible to Filipino consumers, small and medium businesses, and large enterprises.

By leveraging technology to promote positive change and fuel progress, modernization, and innovation in both the country’s public and private sectors, STAR, Inc. supports the DICT’s mandate to promote the digital economy as a path towards inclusive nationwide development.
