Dubai-based Optimus Technology & Telecommunications and China-based telecoms equipment maker Huawei, today announced their first channel event will take place on 8 April, 2013 at the Atlantis Resort, Dubai.

Senior global executives and technology specialists from Huawei will give an overview of their products and partner programmes, and announce promotions for channel partners.

"This is an opportunity for the regional technology channel to understand and align their revenue strategies with Huawei as a product portfolio," Optimus said.

 "Optimus has been extremely proactive in introducing the best technologies in the world to our value channel," said Meera Kaul, managing director, Optimus Technology & Telecommunications.

"This event is a platform for Huawei to introduce their cutting-edge UC, data networking and security solution to our channel partners, share their channel strategy for the region and introduce their popular channel programmes to encourage partners to promote and position Huawei's solutions to end-customers effectively.

"It is also an ideal opportunity for us to meet with partners and understand their requirements. Optimus will provide effective training and certifications and enable channel partners to select, install and maintain Huawei's solutions effectively."

Huawei's enterprise products include solutions for data centres; cloud computing; enterprise networking and wireless; security; unified communication and collaboration (UC&C); video conference; and telepresence. Huawei and Optimus said they will be investing heavily in training, motivating and incentivising partners to represent Huawei's enterprise products.

The two companies said they are also working closely to increase Huawei's market share and reach across the Middle East.

The inaugural Huawei channel event is said to be the first of many events that Optimus has planned for Huawei in the region.
