Under the theme ‘ROADS to your digital world’, Huawei exhibited its latest products and solutions during its participation at the Zain Technology Conference (ZTC) 2016 in Amman, Jordan. In addition, the vendor also displayed OmniChannel, a cross-channel business model that companies use to improve customer experience; and Much TV, a video ecosystem that enables streaming of video content through Huawei’s video cloud.

Huawei and Zain signed a five-year managed services agreement to streamline Zain Sudan’s operations. Huawei will help improve Zain Sudan’s profitability by reducing the carrier’s overheads, providing advanced management tool and network services that enable the telecom leader to focus on building its business.

Scott Gegenheimer, CEO, Zain Group, said: “In order for Zain to continually evolve to be a sustainable integrated digital lifestyle services provider, we heavily rely on key strategic technology partners like Huawei to meet our ambitious sustainable digital innovation goals. Innovation and its implementation to enhance our customers’ mobile experience lies at the heart of Zain’s vision.”

“Our participation at the Zain Technology Conference in Jordan gives us an opportunity to showcase Huawei’s latest solutions that will play a significant role in advancing the region’s ICT sector over the next decade,” said Lan Yun, president, carrier network business group (CNBG), Huawei Middle East. “We are delighted to continue to build on our relationship with Zain Group, through deploying Huawei managed services in Zain Sudan, and empowering the group’s network with Software-defined Network (SDN) solutions in six markets across MENA”.

Earlier this year, the two companies signed a strategic agreement to enhance the efficiency of its networks through SDN solutions by the year 2020.
