Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, will be joining telecom experts at this week’s Middle East Telco World Summit—held on the 29th & 30th November in Dubai, UAE—as the company shares it’s vision for the advancement of smart Mobile Broadband networks and the forthcoming opportunities for operators, businesses and individual subscribers in the MENA region.
Now entering its 16th year, the Middle East Telco World Summit is the longest established and largest annual Middle Eastern telecoms event. Huawei is both a Branding Sponsor for this year’s summit as well as the Diamond Sponsor for the ‘LTE Focus Day’ being held on the second day of the event.
"Realizing the important role of ICT in a country’s development, especially within the Middle East and North Africa, Huawei is continuing to develop its capacity to offer solutions that support the transformation towards broadband-based ICT services,” notes Mr. Gaston Khoury, Vice President of Wireless Networks, Huawei. “Telecommunication technologies have swiftly passed the Kbps and Mbps era over the past 20 years and are stepping into a Giga world. New business opportunities in mobile broadband are compelling many regional operators to escalate investments in strategy and planning. As we witness the explosive growth in traffic following a continued surge in smartphone uptake and exciting new multimedia applications, developing new partnership models, revenue-share options, and other incentives schemes will be necessary to future broadband-based services.”
Huawei global experts will be linking with this year’s +2,000 attendees via a series of high-profile keynote presentations, panel discussions and exhibition activities. At center stage will be the introduction of Huawei’s latest SingleRAN Beyond solutions—a combination of the company’s market leading GigaSite, Small Cell and SingleSON elements that provide a single unique platform to operators for enhanced wireless-network capacity and management.
During the ‘LTE Focus Day’ on 30th November, Huawei will also be offering its expertise on the latest development and deployment strategies that are specific to regional Long Term Evolution (LTE) services—widely touted as the future in wireless broadband standards.
“One of the main concerns for operators today is how to design profitable MBB networks that provide a rich subscriber experience whilst still realizing large-scale operation and management,” notes Khoury. “To meet such challenges, Huawei has established new mechanisms, procedures and tools to continuously monitor and report on the link between service and experience. Such practices will play a major role in allowing operators to balance cutting-edge broadband services while staying commercially competitive in the mobile era.”
Huawei has earned a reputation within the region as a pioneer in the field of mobile broadband and LTE technologies in particular. This year alone, the company was involved in the deployment of the region’s widest LTE network in the UAE as well as the recent launch of LTE TDD services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Huawei also released the world’s first LTE TDD wireless broadband router, and partnered with Etisalat Academy to introduce the first certified LTE training programme in the Middle East region
