Huawei is participating at the 2017 SAMENA Telecom Leaders’ Summit held in Dubai on 30 April, 2017. The event brings together telecom leaders and influencers in the private and government sectors of South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, Asia, and Europe. 

“Today’s industry leaders are looking for a clear roadmap on how to best accelerate digital adoption to drive growth across the region,” said Bocar BA, CEO of SAMENA Council.  “This can be done more efficiently when we, as an industry, align our visions and take a collaborative focus on the development of the digital technologies and work together to enable the whole region to participate in the digital transformation.”

Under the theme ‘Shape the Cloud-Win the Future’, Huawei will unveil its Global Connectivity Index(GCI) at the event. The index aims to throw light on where some Middle East countries stand on their journey to connectivity. 

“As we enter a fully connected era, digital infrastructure continues to facilitate economic growth,” said Charles Yang, president of Huawei Middle East. “The digital age is dawning and the potential opportunities for the telecoms industry, which is the primary enabler of industry digitisation, are beyond our imagination. Our participation at this Summit is a reflection of Huawei’s keenness to listen, share and contribute to the telecom industry by sharing its open ROADS strategy for a better connected world, in addition to cloudification as the key driver and future success trend of digital transformation, thus we have introduced the “All Cloud” strategy, which focuses on delivering a ROADS experience, to shape the cloud, and win the future.”

In addition, Huawei will also be hosting two other forums at the event- cloud business forum and ultra broadband summit. While the cloud forum will delve into utilisation of cloud computing for effective, all-pervasive digital transformation, the broadband summit will look into growth opportunities for telcos in the video sphere that are brought on by the implementation of ultra-broadband networks.
