Following continued investments in research and development to provide technologies across the region’s enterprise market, Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, was honored with the prestigious “Networking Vendor of the Year’ at the Network Middle East Innovation Awards 2014. Huawei received the award in the company of 150 industry professionals during a gala dinner at The Fairmont Palm Hotel, Dubai.
The Network Middle East Innovation Awards included 15 categories covering the full spectrum of talent in the ICT industry. The annual awards ceremony celebrated the best organizations on the regional IT scene, with awards being presented to companies that made an outstanding contribution to the sector over the past 12 months.
Tom Paye, editor of Network Middle East said: “For the networking vendor of the year award, Huawei stood out to the judges for a number of reasons. Firstly, they were impressed by the number and scope of implementations that Huawei and its partners have carried out over the past year. From government to leisure, Huawei seemed to have a presence everywhere in 2013-2014. The judges were also impressed with the strong offerings that Huawei brought to market over the past 12 months. Perhaps most importantly, however, the judges were impressed by the number of end-users that Huawei and its partners have kept happy this year. It is a rare thing to see so many customers so eager to praise a particular vendor."
Huawei was recognized by the judging panel for the efforts to grow its channel and local partner network which helped to drive the business. The panel was also impressed with the company’s empowerment of businesses within the region to capture opportunities from the advancement of network infrastructure. Huawei was awarded for making a noteworthy commitment to the Middle East channel community through their business development activities, product portfolio, partner programs and service support.
“We are honored to have been chosen for this prestigious award by our partners and members of the ICT community across sectors. We thank the Innovation Awards judges for this recognition” said Dong Wu, President of Huawei Enterprise Middle East. “Awards like these serve as strong motivator for us to continue driving excellence in everything that we do at Huawei.”
