CeBIT 2015: Huawei set for flurry of announcements
Raft of new products, partnership agreements to be made public throughout the week
Huawei is set to showcase a flurry of new products this week, as well as sign a number of "significant" partnership agreements, the company said ahead of this year's CeBIT trade show in Germany.
The Chinese vendor is using the mega-IT fair to launch six new hardware products, as well as seven new solutions, the company said. Among the new hardware products are the S12700 Agile Switches, the CloudEngine 12800 Data Center Switches, the NetEngine Core Router, Fusion Server 9032, OcesanStor 18800 and OceaStor 9000.
The new solutions, aimed at governments and various key verticals globally, include the Smart City Solution, the OmniMedia Solution, the Agile Network Solution, the Service-Drive Distributed Cloud Data Centre, the Agile Collaboration Solution, the Industrial Interconnection Solution, and a suite of Enterprise ICT Services.
Huawei said that more details surrounding these new offerings would be provided throughout the course of the week. The vendor will hold a press conference tomorrow focused on four of its new products.
"These solutions help vertical industries build smart cities, smart grids, OmniMedia capabilities and omni-channel finance services," the company said ahead of the conference.
Meanwhile, Huawei has also announced that it will use CeBIT 2015 to sign a series of partnership agreements with other vendors. Later today, it will sign an MoU with SAP, though other agreements with vendors such as Accenture, IBM and Honeywell will also be announced throughout the week.
Huawei said that a lot of the announcements this week will be focused on its desire to help countries build smart cities - a trend that the Middle East is no stranger to, but one which is also ramping up in Europe.
"In 2014, Huawei achieved steady growth in the global market. In the area of smart cities, Huawei's Safe City Solution has been widely deployed in more than 100 cities worldwide to date," the vendor said in a statement.
