The Huawei Middle East Data Center Network Online
Summit 2020, held during GITEX Technology Week, saw experts from the Middle East region
and around the world discuss the value of next-generation data centers for the intelligent era,
in which data is a key production factor.
Held online and organized by Huawei, the Summit brought together global and regional experts
to address the challenges faced by data centers in tomorrow’s hyper-connected world. Speakers
represented leading companies such as Huawei, Gartner, Solutions by stc, and more.
Conference participants recognized the huge surges in data volumes happening now and
expected in the future. Issues of computing power loss and others must therefore be overcome
in order for governments and enterprises to realize the full value of their data center resources.
Conference speakers explored the latest data center network technology trends, covering how
enterprises can mine intelligence from data, accelerate their digital transformation, and promote
the development of the Middle East digital economy over the coming years.
Alaa Bawab, Vice President for Enterprise Networking Business at Huawei Middle East, said:
“This year has seen an explosive growth of digital technologies in the Middle East and around
the world. That has led to massive transformation across almost all industries, as entities in the
public and private sectors alike have accelerated their digitalization plans and sought to stay
connected as seamlessly as possible. Data centers must evolve in order to meet the increased
demand of a more connected society, which leverages the capabilities of 5G, cloud, and artificial
intelligence to create more value.”
Today, AI is driving data center reconstruction and the transition from an era defined by the
cloud into the AI era. Compared with earlier infrastructure, an AI data center goes further in
being an actual business-value center, enabling organizations to gain true wisdom from
transient data as well as efficiently processing their data.
To that end, Huawei launched its autonomous data center network solution for customers in the
Middle East during GITEX. The upgraded solution delivers high-density autonomous driving,
400GE super capacity, and zero-packet-loss intelligent experience, leading data center networks
into the intelligence era.
Under the slogan of ‘New Value Together’, Huawei has strengthened its commitment to the
region’s technology ecosystem by confirming its largest ever GITEX Technology Week presence
at the 40th anniversary edition of the event. The company is collaborating with partners to
showcase how governments and organizations in the Middle East can create new value through
synergy across five tech domains.
