Following continued investments in research and development to provide technologies across businesses across industries in the enterprise market, Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, was recently honored by industry leaders with the prestigious title of Middle East “Networking Vendor of the Year” at the 7th Channel Middle East Awards.
Manda Banda, editor of Channel Middle East said: “The judging panel was impressed with Huawei Enterprise’s investments in research and development (R&D) and the company’s launch of a new networking solutions centre in 2013. The vendor’s efforts to expand its channel network carefully helped to propel its business forward into the enterprise segment. Already a strong brand in the telco arena across the region, I am sure many organisations are looking forward to seeing how Huawei Enterprise's strengths and capabilities will help their own organisations to make a difference to the bottom line.”
The award recognizes a company that has gone above and beyond to build their local partner network and empower businesses within the region to capture opportunities emerging from the advancement of network infrastructure. Huawei was further recognized for making a noteworthy commitment to the Middle East channel community through their business development activities, product portfolio, partner programs and service support.
“We thank the Channel Middle East Awards for this recognition and are honored to have been chosen for this prestigious award by our partners and members of the ICT community across sectors,” said Dong Wu, President of Huawei Enterprise Middle East. “Our dedicated employees & strategic partners in the region have been essential to Huawei’s development over the past several years. This award recognizes their commitment as well as their ongoing confidence in Huawei as a trusted and preferred partner for enterprises in the Middle East.”
This year’s Channel Middle East Awards brought together over 360 leaders from the region’s IT landscape including top vendors, distributors, resellers and retailers who were honored for their dedication to the development of the IT industry over the last 12 months. During last year’s event Huawei was also honored with the “Vendor of the Year in the Channel” award.
Following over a decade of success in the region’s telecommunications industry, Huawei’s Enterprise business group, to which the latest award was presented, was established in the Middle East in 2011 and has since grown rapidly in both size and offerings.
Huawei has continued to align its channel strategy based on the key trends that are affecting the region’s enterprises, identifying opportunities to affect notable change through the implementation of mobility, big data and network-agility solution. This has included supporting partners that work across industries including medium size business in education, healthcare, retail, manufacturing, banking and more.
