Huawei Aims to Drive Network Transformation in Africa


[Cape Town, South Africa, November 17th, 2015] Huawei today showcased its comprehensive technical capabilities and ICT solution portfolio at AfricaCom 2015, one of Africa’s biggest technology trade fairs. At the show, Huawei reinforced its commitment to carriers in emerging markets and strong focus on enabling carriers’ digital transformation.

“Digital transformation is a global trend in the telecom industry, however carriers in each region have different challenges and needs,” said Jean-Marc Cabrol, Huawei’s Sr. solutions sales director and a speaker at the event. “Following extensive dialogue with our telco customers around the world, Huawei believes carriers in emerging markets, including Africa, need to speed up network transformation to enable the future digital society, and SDN/NFV is key to this transformation. We are fully committed to our customers operating across emerging markets and will continue to develop tailor-made strategies to ensure their rapid progress in network transformation.”

In addition to providing technology solutions and services, Huawei also proactively supports and collaborates with carriers in emerging markets to develop strategic roadmaps for future networks. The company recently launched a joint whitepaper with Etisalat Group entitled “Etisalat – 2020 Landscape” on the 11th of November. The strategic whitepaper outlined Etisalat’s future network architecture framework based on its Network2020 vision and shows how Huawei will enable the carrier to deliver intelligent, fast and reliable services to a diverse customer base across a number of fast-developing countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

The 18th annual AfricaCom is being held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, Cape Town, South Africa from November 17th to the 19th, 2015. Huawei’s booth is located in the exhibition hall at location D4.
