“We have what it takes for a successful start of the 5G in Morocco!” This statement by Chakib Achour, Director Marketing and Strategy Huawei Morocco, summarizes the ambitions of the Chinese giant.
Huawei is a precursor worldwide with fifty contracts, the latest of which is that of Monaco. Indeed, Monaco Telecom has launched this week its network of 5G, with Huawei equipment, making the principality landlocked in southeastern France the first state in Europe fully covered with this new mobile technology. Spain will have to follow shortly.
But beyond 5G, the Chinese group also intends to participate in the digital transformation in the Kingdom. “This transformation starts with a national broadband plan,” says the manager. According to him, the digital transformation is based on three basic pillars: connectivity, cloud and open data. This theme was also at the heart of the debates during a day organized by the Moroccan subsidiary of the Chinese giant Tuesday, July 9 in Casablanca. This is the 1st edition of the “Huawei Morocco ICT Day Summit”.
An event dedicated to solutions and innovations with high added value in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT). Several Huawei industry experts took part in the “Huawei Morocco ICT Day Summit” which brought together nearly 200 participants, interested in the latest digital trends and wishing to inquire about current developments. This meeting was also an opportunity to introduce Huawei’s new products and solutions to the general public, like wifi 6 and All Flash storage.
“The wifi 6 makes it possible to build a high quality network with high bandwidth, low latency and high reliability. All Flash storage systems, meanwhile, offer excellent performance and allow thousands of exchanges per second. They meet the storage requirements for online transactional and analytic processing and cloud computing of large databases,” he explains.
Huawei has also rolled out its state-of-the-art solutions for intelligent video surveillance. Its easy-to-recognize cameras equip over 500 cities in more than 100 countries. “Our cameras are installed in the strategic roundabouts of Marrakech and they have already allowed to stop thugs,” said Chakib Achour.
Rabat and Casablanca, which have not yet awarded this contract (subject to a call for tenders), are also among the cities targeted by Huawei.
