Huawei powers NEC Payments datacenter

MANAMA, May 1, 2017

Huawei Bahrain and NEC Payments have announced the implementation of a new enterprise-class datacenter, designed to support Bahrain’s financial services industry and emerging cashless society.

A fully-fledged hardware solution by Huawei has scaled the datacenter’s capacity and security to meet NEC Payments customers’ high volume of data demands as they continue to evolve, said a statement.

Among Huawei’s latest technology deployed at NEC Payments’ datacenter are two converged servers, which integrate many functions for handling big data in one single framework. These have been coupled with one of Huawei’s hallmark cloud data storage systems designed for fast data growth and on-demand disaster recovery, as well as Huawei’s high security data protection system.

Huawei Bahrain’s CEO Feng Nan Paul commented: “It’s been an honour to mark yet another step forward in the direction of Bahrain’s digital transformation and ICT development. We look forward to this datacenter empowering Bahrain’s local payments market and serving Bahrain’s growing cashless economy.”

“We’re glad to leverage our ICT knowledge, comprehensive technical expertise and continuous innovations, aimed at building open, resilient and secure platforms in Bahrain’s enterprise market,” concluded Paul.   

The NEC Payments datacenter has been deployed to address the needs of Bahrain’s financial services industry and to drive the digital transformation of the payments sector. It provides NEC Payments with network security, processing and storage capacity to manage expanding volumes of digital transactions and data for mission-critical workloads. Beneficiaries include banks, financial companies and businesses requiring payments services, as well as public sector entities, the statement said.

Built and operated to international standards, and with certifications including compliance with the industry’s latest payment security standards, NEC Payments flexible infrastructure suits the requirements of virtually all clients, especially those requiring high-performance online transaction processing in a highly-secure on-premises environment.

NEC Payments CEO Andrew Sims commented: “It’s been a pleasure collaborating with a global provider such as Huawei which has a clear understanding of Bahrain’s digital transition and adheres to the principle of shared success. The implementation of our on-premises data center in Bahrain was a critical stage in the deployment and certification of our highly-innovative multi-channel, multi-wallet, multi-currency transaction processing platform.”

Sims added: “It enables us to rapidly deploy and scale new payment products and services on behalf of financial services customers in Bahrain and the GCC which will promote financial inclusion and help to create new and efficient payment flows for governments, businesses and consumers. Huawei made the implementation a smooth process that will truly benefit us, our customers and help drive digital transformation in Bahrain.”

Huawei Bahrain’s Enterprise Business Group solutions are designed to help enterprises meet the demands of the increasingly connected world and provide businesses a better competitive edge in the local market.  – TradeArabia News Service
