Huawei also demonstrated how the company’s video cloud solutions will offer both telecom operators and content providers in the region with the necessary platform to generate new sources of revenue and monetize content, while providing consumers with a plethora of content options through a single source.

“The region has an insatiable appetite for video consumption and the industry has a growing population and continuously increasing penetration, in addition to the growing demand for personalized content on the go” said Allen Lu, Head of Huawei Middle East Video MET. “Both content providers and telecom operators have a great growth potential by tapping into video cloud solutions such as Huawei’s MuchTV.
