ICT has completely transformed communication as we know it and thereby provides many advantages. However, the process of digitizing sensitive information has opened a path to malicious data manipulations and malversations. To help address this issue, many engineers, ICT experts, and organizations have invested time and resources into finding the best solutions.

VLATACOM and Vladimir Cizelj Take ICT to the Next Level

One of these experts is Vladimir Cizelj, Ph.D., the founder of VLATACOM Institute. Cizelj’s vision led to the development of security systems and solutions designed to protect critical data and communication channels. Private users, large enterprises, public safety services, and governments now use these systems. 

What Is ICT?

ICT stands for “information and communication technologies.”

This is a broad term that describes all communication technologies, services, applications, and devices that make it possible for people to store, access, exchange, and manipulate digital data. These technologies include various networking components, the internet, computers, smart devices, cell phones, and software. Additionally, it even includes social networking. Basically, it covers all the components and infrastructure that people need to communicate in the digital world.

The world is slowly but surely turning to digital means of communication. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the advances in ICT have led to socio-economic development and business growth. Modern telecommunication channels, together with quick and seamless data management, enhance interaction, networking, and learning. In short, they facilitate a wide range of operations and procedures.

As a matter of fact, the importance of ICT for the global economy is huge. According to research conducted by the IDC, the resources being spent on the ICT industry across countries and regions are expected to reach $4.3 trillion in 2020. This represents a 3.6% rise over 2019. The ICT sector boosts economic activity worldwide, as businesses and individuals now readily embrace digital transformation and the many advantages it has to offer.

What Is the Role of VLATACOM in the ICT Industry?

Critical data as well as confidential, private, and sensitive information have always been subject to misuse. With the advances of technology and data digitalization, the dangers became even greater. New types of digital criminal and security threats have emerged. For this reason, both organizations and individuals have been on the lookout for reliable ICT security solutions that provide the most effective protection. That’s where VLATACOM’s innovative security systems and devices come in.

VLATACOM is led by a renowned scientist and an ambitious entrepreneur, Vladimir Cizelj. The institute has developed, designed, and patented a wide selection of devices and systems that improve ICT security. Every solution is well-researched and tested by experts and professionals in the fields of technology, engineering, and communications. Moreover, it has only one aim: to protect the confidentiality and integrity of your data. 

Each user has specific requirements and budget. Therefore, VLATACOM offers a range of ICT security solutions to meet the individual needs of every customer. Take, for example, the TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) communication platform, developed by Motorola and integrated by VLATACOM. This solution keeps the communication channels of various public safety organizations and services safe and protected. Another solution is the VLATACOM Reliable Communication Channel (vREBECCA). This protects high-capacity digital transport systems. Another, the vPCP-V (VLATACOM Personal Crypto Platform for Voice Encryption), establishes a secure channel used by VoiP for mobile, landline, and public voice communication systems.

Vladimir Cizelj and VLATACOM Institute: The Road So Far

Vladimir Cizelj is a well-known scientist, innovator, engineer, and entrepreneur from Slovenia. As an engineer with a master’s degree in business and administration, Cizelj has taken part in a myriad of successful projects. He quickly gained recognition as an expert in the field of information communication technologies. Aware of the growing market demands for safe ICT infrastructure, he made it his priority to develop state-of-the-art security solutions that offer premium protection to their users.

That is exactly how VLATACOM came to life. In 1997, Vladimir Cizelj decided it was the perfect time to take the plunge and set up his own company. At the time, the company was called Vlatacom Ltd. Its main role was to represent Motorola in Serbia. However, after achieving major success and receiving outstanding performance recognition from the CEO of Motorola, Vladimir Cizelj realized the full potential Vlatacom has to offer.

It wasn’t long before the company started growing and gaining recognition both in the region and outside of Europe. The Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia declared VLATACOM a Research and Development Center in 2011. Four years later, in 2015, VLATACOM received the status of the first private institute in Serbia specialized in ICT research and development.
