Huawei’s solutions support Africa’s emerging economies

Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, has reaffirmed its commitment to Egypt and the African continent at ITU Telecom Africa 2008 taking place from today until 15 May at Cairo’s International Convention Centre.

Africa’s economical and social factors, such as its young populations and the low mobile and internet penetration, mean that the continent has very quickly become a focus for operators and vendors alike. Although it makes business sense to be active here, Huawei believes that it is a mutually beneficial scenario.

Mr. Tian Feng, President of Huawei in the Middle East and North Africa region, said: “The extraordinary growth in the African telecoms arena is very apparent, particularly in countries like Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa where telecoms activity is soaring. Although a very challenging environment, the continent presents Huawei with many opportunities to address the enormous potential and respond to the sophisticated demands by the local operators and consumers in these countries.”

“Over the past few years Huawei has made significant investments in the region.  We are committed to Africa and to supporting the local economies of every country we operate in”, Mr. Tian added. “Huawei’s products and services will ultimately provide consumers and businesses with access to the best technologies available, enabling them to connect and share information more easily with their friends, families and colleagues. Increasing connectivity can only benefit the end consumer and improve the quality of their lives at home and in the office.”

At ITU Telecom Africa, the company will present a host of activities from workshops on industry hot topics to live demonstrations of the latest innovative technologies that will revolutionize the industry.

Huawei’s popular WiMAX demonstration truck will also be available to visit within the grounds of the convention centre. The inside of the truck is fully equipped to demonstrate Huawei’s successful E2E solutions (including WiMAX access network, IMS and application server) as well as VOD/FTP, radio monitoring, video back transmission, VoIP and TV Live.

If you are interested in visiting Huawei at ITU Telecom Africa, the company’s booth is located in Hall 2 at the Cairo International Convention Centre.
