Huawei Vision: Inflation and geopolitical events have raised production costs and prices

هواوي للرؤية: التضخم والأحداث الجيوسياسية رفعت تكلفة الإنتاج والأسعار

Alaa El-Shimy, CEO and Senior Vice President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group for the Middle East, said in statements to “Al-Rou’ah” on the sidelines of the Huawei Internet Protocol Club 2022 conference, which was launched today in Dubai, that geopolitical events in Europe and the current wave of inflation have raised prices on Countries and companies around the world, and that inflation led to an increase in the prices of raw materials such as iron, gold, plastic, etc., which was reflected on international prices and raised the cost of production as well as prices for end customers. He stressed that the countries of the Middle East, especially the UAE and Saudi Arabia, have strong economies that help large companies to withstand fluctuations in other markets.

Al-Shimy explained that “Huawei has 2,000 partners in the Middle East out of 30,000 partners in the world, and that 276 of the 500 largest companies in the world are Huawei customers, and that all governments, telecommunications companies, and most oil, water and electricity companies in the Middle East are also our clients. They rely on smart solutions that we provide as end-users.”

Fifth generation

Al-Shimy stated that Huawei has implemented more than 200 networks of the fifth generation worldwide, and today there are about 700 million users of the fifth generation network globally, and at the level of the Middle East, Huawei works with all Gulf countries in this field, led by the UAE, where there is a partnership with telecom operators He pointed out that 25% of the fifth generation applications are linked to the phone only, and the other part is linked to other smart applications, smart cities, education, training and remote work.

digital economy

Al-Shimy added that the size of the digital economy in the world today amounts to 11.2 trillion dollars and is expected to reach 65 trillion dollars by 2030, and at the level of the UAE, 10% of GDP comes from the digital economy and there are plans to raise this percentage in the country in 2023 to more than From 20%, and globally, 170 out of 190 countries have ambitious plans for digital transformation, and therefore Huawei will have a major role in developing the infrastructure of countries and companies and providing smart solutions to reach the desired goals.

3 new solutions

Today, Huawei launched three new solutions for Internet Protocol (IP) networks that aim to enable digital transformation of companies and institutions within various sectors in the countries of the Middle East and North Africa region, relying on superior computing capabilities and intelligence.

The first day of the conference witnessed emphasizing the importance of keeping pace with the ever-changing business scenarios of customers, during which Huawei launched innovative “Cloud Fabric 3.0”, “SD1” and “Cloud Campus 3.0” solutions that aim to support efforts to digitize the businesses and institutions in line with the reality and requirements All sectors in the countries of the region.

In his speech at the conference, Faisal Malik, Senior Director of Technology at Huawei Enterprise Business Group in the Middle East, said, “Smart IP networks that connect things on the one hand and applications on the other hand have become the cornerstone of digitizing the business of all sectors, and in light of the Accelerated digital transformation in companies, these networks should keep pace with advanced cloud technologies in line with the requirements of the future business of these companies, and our new solutions aim to meet current challenges and formulate a better future for enterprise networks in line with the various business scenarios of partners and customers in terms of opening new horizons for digital transformation in various sectors.

The first enterprise networking solution launched at the conference, CloudFabric 3.0 integrated data center, is an ideal solution for building best-in-class data center networks. It supports companies’ efforts to build a service center with superior computing power and new features of an autonomous driving network, as well as enabling corporate data centers to handle multiple cloud computing platforms and data centers. Huawei has created the unique AIFABRIC technology that ensures zero data loss, enhances usage efficiency, latency and enhances productivity, and can be easily connected to all data centers via Ethernet.

The second solution that was unveiled, SD-WAN, is a cloud computing innovation that has superior capabilities to connect the company’s branches, headquarters and multiple cloud computing platforms. The new solution provides a robust network, superior user experience, and seamless operation and maintenance capabilities. It also meets the wireless connectivity requirements within companies, telecom companies and telecom service providers of all sizes and types.

The third solution launched by Huawei, CloudCampus 3.0 is based on continuous innovations in software-defined wireless networks and network adapters, and offers a wide range of completely new products, and provides a comprehensive access experience “at a speed of 300 Mbps” with enhanced efficiency Access to the cloud, enabling its widespread use in education, healthcare, financial services, and energy. Its most important feature is to help companies reduce latency and improve operational efficiency.

During the conference, Huawei also presented the HiSec 3.0 solution, which specializes in network monitoring and extracting behavior data within it to detect threats as quickly as possible and solve problems in real time. Through this solution, Huawei enables new capabilities to analyze big data and enhance security by using a deep neural network algorithm and machine learning technology to shift from defensive response to proactive defense. This solution also contributes to preventing the spread of threats on internal networks, as Huawei has integrated security operations in the network to launch the first defense solution in the IT sector that combines the advantages of network efficiency and security, achieving the transformation from single-point defense to network-level defense.
