Huawei initiative focuses on connecting emerging markets to wireless networks

Monday, February 26, 2018

Huawei has announced an initiative aimed at enabling digital transformation across emerging markets, involving business solutions, cooperation “modes”, and a new industry environment.

Announced during Huawei’s Digital Transformation Forum on Sunday ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona, the Chinese networking giant said it would work with local operators, governments, and industry partners on forming IT solutions for emerging markets.

According to Huawei, around 3 billion people across the globe do not have access to broadband services, with the company seeing opportunity in breaking down the infrastructure and ecosystem barriers to network development.

“To capitalise on the vast opportunities in emerging markets, operators need to deliver a better scenario-based service and accelerate their return on investment,” Huawei Carrier Business Group VP Zhou Jianjun said.
