As telecom service providers strive for greater operational efficiency, ICT vendor Huawei has unveiled a roadmap aimed at helping regional operators to become more agile, flexible, and adaptable through leveraging a new era of managed services to transform their IT operations.

“In the digital era, operators need to become more agile, flexible, and adaptable to the ever changing needs that consumers are demanding of telecom services. A clear IT transformation strategy will give operators the ability to meet these ambitions and in turn drive their own businesses forward,” said Zhou Qingwei, VP, Regional Delivery and Service, Huawei Middle East.

Several of Huawei’s top global and regional experts in the field of managed services will present at the Congress while also hosting several exhibitions and partner workshops in areas such as software-defined networking and network function virtualisation. These areas will be particularly important as operators look to gain quick access to resources from around the world while not having to invest in the creation and management of wholly-owned infrastructure.

Dr Leroy Blimegger, senior VP, Huawei Global Services and Head of Assurance and Managed Services, said expectations of ICT are changing from just keeping business running to supporting overall business growth and promoting innovation within the digital area. As a result, Blimegger said more and more service providers are teaming up with outsourcing partners who understand the telecom business and have complete capabilities to fully support ICT transformation.
