Huawei won two acclaimed awards – “Best Telecom Service Innovation” and “Leadership in IoT”, “– at the TechXLR8 Asia Awards 2018 in Singapore.
Lim Chee Siong, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, Huawei Southern Pacific said, “We are honored and delighted to be recognized for our efforts and contributions towards the growing 5G landscape. The recognition from the industry and partners is reassuring our capability and innovations. We would like to thank our partners for believing in our vision of Building a Fully Connected Intelligent World through open ecosystem collaborations. We share this achievement with them and will continue to improve our offerings.”
The 5G Network Slicing as a Service (NSaaS) solution by Huawei was awarded the “Best Telecom Service Innovation” award. The solution enables operators the ability to provide differentiated network slices for varied vertical markets instead of just providing data connection with the same quality for all end users. Besides, it helps operators run a “slice mall” to sell network slices to enterprises. Huawei has already been conducting extensive trials on 5G Slice services with many first-tier operators, including Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica, China Mobile and so on.
The IoT Solution Partnership Program, developed by Huawei was conferred the “Leadership in IoT” award for its rendered IoT support to partners. Huawei’s injection of resources in the development of global and local IoT partnership ecosystem and OpenLabs across the globe has seen success from its IoT industry solution development of the IoT chipset – Boudica, LiteOS – to the creation of sustainable cloud-based IoT platform – Huawei OceanConnect IoT Platform and industry developer applications. Huawei has designed an IoT Solution Partnership Program which has upgraded the knowledge of more than 1300 partners across industries through 3 key touchpoints – Developer Community, OpenLab, and Marketplace.
Sam Oakley, Senior Portfolio Director, KNect365 said, “The TechXLR8 Awards showcases innovation and excellence in the telecommunication and technology industry and the judges had a very difficult challenge in selecting winners from a selection of very high-quality entries in 2018. Huawei’s success in winning 2 awards reinforces their leading position in the market.
