Xiaofeng at the awards ceremony

Huawei named best 5G innovator

DUBAI, UAE , May 12, 2016

Global ICT solutions provider Huawei was recently named the Best 5G Innovator at the inaugural LTE & 5G Mena Awards held in Dubai.

Commenting on the win, Sun Xiaofeng, vice president of solution sales and marketing for Huawei in the Middle East, said: “We are excited by the award and this reflects our commitment and belief in the region. As the region continues to harness the potential of LTE and expand its networks, Huawei has proven to be one of the leading innovators in the region’s mobile broadband market. With ambitious mobile broadband plans already underway, we believe that the Middle East will help lead the development of 5G globally and Huawei certainly plans to help facilitate that development.”

Huawei also recently sponsored the LTE Mena conference where the company’s president of wireless network marketing, Margret Hu, gave the opening speech.

Hu provided a mobile broadband blueprint for the next five years, saying: “MBB development will make "Everything on Mobile" a reality. To realise this vision however, we must develop and unify cross-industry standards, contain costs, and promote cooperation among different stakeholders. These three factors will help drive growth in this market.”

“From now until 2020, we have three main targets globally: supporting 6.7 billion mobile broadband users, supporting a 1Gbps access rate, and supporting 1 billion connections for the cellular Internet of Things. In the region in particular, we believe that the emergence of a fully-connected world with boundless possibilities is imminent. Achieving these goals will most certainly require technology, business model innovation as well as cross-industry collaboration,” she added.

More than 600 experts from the global ICT industry convened at the conference to discuss mobile broadband and other emerging technologies. Huawei partnered with telecom operators, analysts, regulators, and a host of other technology pioneers to put the Mena region at the forefront of today’s connected world and map out the future road to 5G. –TradeArabia News Service
