Huawei and Telematics Market Unified Communications in UAE

August 14, 2013

Huawei is strengthening its ties with the United Arab Emirates with its partnership with systems integrator Telematics, according to AMEinfo.

Huawei's (News - Alert) channel partner program plays a vital role in our overall Middle East business strategy where Qatar and the UAE are some of our fastest-growing markets," Dong Wu, vice president of Huawei Enterprise Middle East, told AMEinfo.com.

"Telematic, part of the BMTC group, brings valuable insights into key vertical industries such as finance, hospitality and government. Together we look forward to bringing the latest in Unified Communications (News - Alert) technologies to customers throughout the region." Wu said.

The two companies are furthering a Unified Communications (UC) push into the region. UC aims to offer seamless communications between different mobile devices, including voice, data, video and instant messaging. According to a report from Frost and Sullivan from 2010, the market for UC is expected to reach $235 million by 2014.

The two companies will offer solutions for the government, transportation, aviation, hospitality and education sectors.

The China-based company decided to make Telematics a silver-level partner, citing its large customer base and experience with both the UAE and Qatari market. Telematics was likewise impressed with Huawei.

“We chose to partner with Huawei Enterprise because of the company's wide range of products, history in the telecom business and its interactive channel team. We look forward to developing this relationship in years to come," Rajiv Dutta, general manager for Telematics, said.

This is not the only international collaboration for Huawei. The company is partnering with True, a fully-integrated communications provider based in Thailand, to commercialize Huawei’s line of 400G communications cards.

“Traffic on the backbone network increases explosively as mobile broadband services and video services develop dramatically. It's time for the 400G technology to apply to live networks,” Gai Gang, president of Huawei Carrier IP Product Line, said.
