Huawei has launched its Telepresence 2.0 teleconferencing solution at this year’s GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK. Telepresence 2.0 is designed to allow users to interact in high definition even with low bandwidths.

“Huawei Telepresence 2.0 allows up to 5% data packet loss, which is much higher than telepresence solutions from Huawei’s competitors,” said Zia ul Mazafary, solution manager, Huawei Enterprise Business, Middle East region.

This ability to withstand high packet loss is designed to allow telepresence conferences even in regions where connectivity is unstable, according to Huawei. The Telepresence 2.0 solution is also scalable to meet business requirements and can accommodate single conference participants per location up to 16 participants per location.

The system uses 62-inch high definition screens for sharp, high definition, life-sized images of conference participants, adding to the immersive conferencing experience that is enhanced by clear life-like audio. Meetings can also be managed via Android-based smartphones or tablet devices, so that users can join in conferences on the move.

Huawei has been in the video conferencing and telepresence market since 1995 and ul Mazafary says that it is this experience that makes its Telepresence 2.0 solution stand out above competitors’ solutions.

Adoption of telepresence and video conferencing solutions in the Middle East region is low, with only 11% of 300 companies surveyed by the IDC in the Middle East region having a video conferencing or telepresence solution. Six percent of those surveyed have video conferencing and 5% have telepresence solutions.

Huawei is hoping to double its $200m telepresence market share in the region to $400m this year. The company says it is currently on track to achieve this goal and is targeting various verticals including the oil & gas and finance industries.
