Huawei launches first 5G roadshow in Saudi Arabia

RIYADH, April 18, 2019

Huawei launched its first 5G & ICT Roadshow in Saudi Arabia on the sidelines of the ongoing Sixth Forum of Scientific Societies in Riyadh.

Huawei, a strategic partner of the forum, will conduct the roadshow tour in the Kingdom connecting with local representatives from government, business, universities and the public.  The roadshow was officially inaugurated by Prince Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Deputy Governor of Riyadh.

The Huawei roadshow truck is designed specifically to showcase the benefits of 5G networks, incorporating demonstrations like artificial intelligence (AI) applications of 5G, and its uses in the latest technologies including intelligent video surveillance, robotics, augmented reality and more.

Members of the public are welcome to visit the truck to learn 5G knowledge for themselves and to better understand the important role that 5G will play in supporting the goals of Saudi Arabia’s National Digital Transformation Plan 2020.

Dennis Zhang, CEO of Huawei Saudi Arabia, said: “Saudi Arabia is one of the most advanced countries in the region when it comes to 5G planning, and we are privileged to work alongside telecommunications companies in the Kingdom to help realize the deployment of next-generation services across the nation.

“Our 5G & ICT Roadshow will demonstrate to citizens and organizations across Saudi Arabia that the benefits of 5G are immense; they will empower the progression of our connected society and contribute to achieving digital transformation in line with Saudi Vision 2030.”  

Dr Mohammed Alobaida, general supervisor of the management of scientific societies, thanked Huawei for participating as a strategic sponsor for the event. Huawei launched the 5G roadshow technology exhibition and the IT roadshow exhibition to highlight the importance of the 5G, and is open for the forum’s visitors to expand their 5G knowledge and experience the demo of 5G in the truck, which will be the first time in the Middle East and the Kingdom.

Huawei has been a partner of choice for telecom carriers globally in 5G network development, in part because of its broad range of end-to-end 5G solutions covering network sites, architecture, protocols and network operations & maintenance. – TradeArabia News Service
