Singapore – Huawei Technologies announced collaboration and partnerships with 20 key industry peers at this year’s Huawei eco-Connect conference, held in conjunction with CommunicAsia 2017.

The series of partnerships, announced over the course of the three-day trade conference from 23 to 25 May at Sands Expo & Convention Center, Singapore, reinforced Huawei’s continued stronghold of the cloud ecosystem in the Southern ASEAN and Oceania region. The partnerships also demonstrate Huawei’s commitment to empower its cloud partners and build synergies that will support the growth of the cloud ecosystem; enable more businesses of all sizes and industries to tap on the opportunities of cloud technologies; and accelerate the region’s digital economy transformation.

Huawei currently offers its Cloud Platform to enable customers to build new business models and increase revenue streams in the digital age. Huawei also identifies growth opportunities, and hence the emphasis, on IoT-as-a-Service where telecommunications operators and industry partners will be equipped with a holistic approach to IoT services. Other areas for growth identified by Huawei include Video Cloud hosting services for entertainment, gaming, education and business.

To drive innovation and glocalisation of technology services in Singapore, Huawei also recently invested and established a Customer Solution Innovation & Integration Experience Center (CSIC), OpenLab, and jointly introduced the i5Lab with NUS Enterprise. The collaboration aims to cater to the industry’s needs for incubation of innovative ideas, training, research support, funding, testing and certification in the region.
