Riyadh, KSA – April 8, 2020: Huawei Carrier Congress 2020, a key event that discusses the future of 5G in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the role it will play in contributing towards the goals of Vision 2030, is taking place for the first time online from March 24 – April 15. The event is bringing together Huawei’s partners from across the Kingdom to showcase and experience the latest 5G and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.
The first-ever online Huawei Carrier Congress event is focusing on three main streams: 5G Gear Up, which showcases Huawei’s new solutions and global success; AI-enabling intelligent operations; and a showcase of Huawei’s partners in Saudi Arabia who specialize in AI.
Participants have the opportunity to learn how 5G inspires industries and enriches people’s lives, including understanding technologies such as 5G RAN all-scenario solutions, 5G X-Haul for intelligent connectivity, 5G Core for deterministic network, 5G services with AI, as well as other IT innovation. Huawei is also demonstrating its award-winning 5G end-to-end (E2E) solutions, recognized by the GMSA GLOMO ‘5G Leadership’ award as industry leaders in 5G technology, R&D, standards and commercial use.
Terry He, CEO of Huawei KSA, said: “Moving the Huawei Carrier Congress 2020 event online was an obvious choice, considering the global situation we are all facing. Given the importance of technology in realizing the ambitions of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, we felt it necessary to proceed as we help to bring digital connectivity to every person, home and organization to support a fully connected and intelligent society. The Congress is also a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the capabilities of Huawei connectivity for hosting virtual events. We look forward to enabling hundreds of ICT experts from across the region to experience the Congress in an entirely new way.”
The rapid expansion of 5G in the Kingdom is already enabling substantial transformation for the telecommunications industry, while also unlocking opportunities across numerous sectors such as financial services, healthcare, education, manufacturing, government, and more. As an early pioneer of 5G in Saudi Arabia and globally, Huawei believes that the technology will contribute significantly to the country’s economy while creating thousands of new jobs and thus contributing towards realizing the digital transformation goals of Vision 2030.
