Huawei to highlight mobile broadband at Comex

MUSCAT, April 27, 2015

Huawei, a global ICT solutions provider, will highlight the role of LTE (4G) mobile broadband networks in the development of smart cities at Comex 2015, a major IT exhibition that opens today (April 27) in Muscat, Oman.

The event will run until May 1 at Oman International Exhibition Centre.

Mobile broadband holds the promise for cities of the future to meet the growing need for pervasive connectivity, high performance, resilience and reliability, Huawei said in White Paper launched in collaboration with IDC.

Huawei will also highlight its strong alliances with Omani telecom operators, helping them to develop the Sultanate’s LTE (4G) mobile broadband infrastructure, which is poised to increase internet speeds and allow its citizens to become better connected.

This network will provide an enhanced mobile-broadband experience to their customers, offering higher data speeds and faster access to a range of innovative multi-media applications, as well as more responsive data services.

Du Yuzhou, managing director of Enterprise Business, Huawei Oman said: “The region is becoming increasingly city-centric and we believe that the cities of the future will need to become more intelligent through connected infrastructure that can positively transform the way in which citizens and businesses experience the world.”

“Oman is a country with a strong vision in developing Smart City infrastructure and understands the power that ubiquitous mobile broadband can offer the nation. Comex is a great open platform for the Sultanate to showcase how this vision is progressing and for Huawei to re-iterate our commitment to helping offer better connected services to the citizens of Oman.”

As citizens realize the benefits of fast and reliable mobile connectivity, cities will increasingly rely on mobile broadband as a key enabler of Smart City services in many areas; from government to transportation, utilities, education and healthcare, Huawei said in a statement.

As part of its vision to show how ICT can help address citizen services at Comex, Huawei is demonstrating how its cloud and big data solutions can help transform the Healthcare sector in a keynote speech.

Huawei’s ‘Healthcare ICT Transformation & Big Data’ keynote will address how new emerging technologies can offer increased efficiencies and patient services to healthcare organizations.

Huawei will also showcase its range of Video conference, mobile CCTV surveillance and LTE (4G) Rapid Response solutions for emergency services as part of its Public Safety technology portfolio.

In addition, Huawei will also be demonstrating its range of tailored rail technology and communications solutions including its GSM-R, e-LTE (4G), Transmission Networking, IP Networking and data center solutions, which can help build a better connected railway for operators in Oman. – TradeArabia News Service
