Chinese telecoms vendor Huawei is planning its biggest presence ever at this year’s GITEX Technology Week in Dubai, where it will preview solutions that span across the company’s carrier, enterprise and consumer business groups.
Yi Xiang, president of Huawei Middle East, said that much of the spotlight at this year’s GITEX will concentrate on the results of the company’s increased investments in global research and development, which expanded by nearly 35% in 2011 with an emphasis on cloud computing, network security, and handset technologies.
“To adapt to the revolutionary changes that are taking place in the information industry, Huawei has made a number of strategic adjustments to better serve its regional customers through our Cloud-Pipe-Device approach,” Xiang said. “Laying a strong foundation for sustainable business development, the Middle East is an exciting market for Huawei today as ICT is widely recognised as a key driver for socio-economic development. GITEX itself is a truly unparalleled platform for us to connect with our customers, partners and regulators while demonstrating the breadth and depth of our solutions.”
Huawei’s Carrier business will have an extensive range of technologies on display as well as dedicated sessions focusing on the company’s most recent LTE and national broadband deployments.
Huawei will place particular emphasis on its regional business and managed services offerings, which over the last year have become an increasingly important segment of the company’s telecom carrier portfolio.
Huawei’s Enterprise business group also has a busy week planned at GITEX with new partners and customers set to join its channel partner and customer communities, as well as new products and solutions being launched at the show. This year will hold a particular focus on cloud applications and the different applications of cloud computing in a variety of industry scenarios. This will be supplemented by the launch of research conducted by Huawei into the environmental advantages of cloud computing, with attainable power consumption reductions of 20%.
On the device front, Huawei’s consumer business will exhibit smartphones, tablets and mobile WiFi devices.
The company has also confirmed that it will be revealing at GITEX further details of its upcoming line of quad-core consumer products, which are expected to be launched this fall in select markets across the Middle East.
