Honour for Huawei

01 May 2015

HUAWEI has been adjudged the Middle East’s Wireless Vendor of the Year.

The company received its prize at the sixth Network World ME Awards 2015, which took place at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai.

Huawei received the accolade as a result of its work delivering next-generation wireless broadband deployments for enterprises in the UAE such as the Jannah Hotel Group, Emirates Golf Club and Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs.

The judging panel comprised leading industry experts including Arun Tewary, chief information officer, vice president for IT and Emirates flight catering; Esam Hadi, Aluminium Bahrain’s senior IT manager; Madhav Rao, Emke Group’s CIO, and Paul Black, IDC’s director of telecoms and media for the Middle East, Africa and Turkey.

Jeevan Thankappan, group editor of the technology division at CPI Media Group, said: “Huawei was chosen as the wireless vendor of the year by the Network World ME Awards judging panel for its focus on customers, breadth of products, solutions and major customer acquisitions in the region.”

With a strong heritage of building and deploying wireless broadband networks in the region, Huawei showcased its latest WiFi networking projects that it deployed for enterprises in the UAE.

Huawei’s fastest WiFi deployments include its recent partnership with ‘golf in DUBAi’, which brought seamless WiFi connectivity to the 2014 Omega Dubai Desert Classic Golf Tournament connecting up to 2,000 guests at the same time. The company also rolled out the UAE’s fastest hotel WiFi for Jannah Hotels & Resorts.

In addition, Huawei deployed a new campus-wide WiFi network for Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs, which seamlessly connects teachers and students with the center’s digital learning platforms. Other work included deploying a transmission network on the Dubai Metro through du that is now providing access to mobile services in 18 metro stops.

Founded in 1987, Huawei’s ICT solutions, products and services are used in more than 170 countries and regions, serving over one-third of the world’s population.

Among those present at the awards ceremony were Huawei Enterprise Middle East marketing manager Helen Zhang and account managers (UAE) Peter Tanny D’souza and Charles Chebli and CPI publishing director Rajashree Rammohan.
