  • Launches cutting-edge cloud services in Sri Lanka
  • Huawei Sri Lanka CEO says ICT infrastructure is cornerstone for intelligent world

Leading global information and communications technology solution provider Huawei yesterday launched its cutting-edge cloud services to the Sri Lankan enterprise market, while reiterating its commitment to partners and desire to contribute to the Sri Lankan ICT ecosystem.

The big reveal was made yesterday at the Huawei Lanka ICT and Carrier Congress 2019, titled ‘Building a Fully Connected Intelligent Sri Lanka’, in Colombo yesterday. 

The congress also exhibited the latest technologies, which were unveiled by Huawei during Mobile World Congress 2019 held in Barcelona, Spain last month, for the first time in Asia in Sri Lanka. The rise of the latest technologies, including cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G were presented at the exhibition. 

These parallel events brought together over 500 senior management officials across leading partners and telecom operators in Sri Lanka, and was also attended by Telecommunication Minister Harin Fernando, and Digital Infrastructure and Information Technology Non-Cabinet Minister Ajith Perera.

Speaking at the event, Huawei Sri Lanka CEO Shunli Wang said they were committed to play a key role in developing the country’s ICT ecosystem, to further enhance the growth in their enterprise business segment, and to support Sri Lanka’s vision to become an ICT hub in the region.

“ICT infrastructure is the cornerstone for this intelligent world. Connectivity and cloud will be the driving engines for this digitalisation transformation,” he added.

Noting that Huawei’s strategy is focused on fully-connected networking, intelligent computing and innovative devices, Wang said they will continue to bring the latest technology and the best services to serve all Sri Lankan enterprises to help to optimise their performance and achieve their targets.

“In 2019, Huawei came up with innovations with technology and solutions related to 5G, AI, Big Data, cloud, and IoT. In Sri Lanka, we are focused on the 5G, IoT, AI and Cloud services,” he added.

Wang believes that the three-day congress would be as a great knowledge sharing platform to engage with all industry partners in an open and constructive dialogue about digital transformation in Sri Lanka.

“We are committed to bringing digital to every person, home and organisation for a fully connected, intelligent world,” he stressed.

Huawei has been operating in Sri Lanka for over 20 years, and continue to create lasting value for customers, working to empower people, enrich home life through open collaboration whilst connecting over 70% of the 21 million population in Sri Lanka.
