Huawei Concludes MENA, CA&C Annual Professional Services Summit

Middle East, 24th July, 2011: Huawei, a leading global information and communications

technology (ICT) solutions provider, has held its third annual Professional Services

Summit in Istanbul, Turkey, for three regions of the Middle East, North Africa, Central

Asia and Caucasia (MENA, CA&C).

The summit gathered more than 105 executives representing 36 Telco Service Providers

who exchanged views on the latest technological developments and services solutions in

areas covering Quality of Experience (QoE) of end-user subscribers and service quality

management (SQM) in close cooperation with Huawei experts and senior management.

In a word of welcome, Dong Gang, Huawei Global Technical Service Vice President,

said: "It is an honor and a privilege to have our partners and customers gathered from so

many countries and to listen to them. We strive to always understand their requirements

and deliver the most innovative services solutions so they can meet their subscribers’

expectations in terms of quality of service and overall communication experience.”

In addition to the summit’s five topics, an eight-member panel of Telco executives and

Huawei experts conversed and shared experiences on the event’s topics of QoE and

SQM, which reflect the summit’s theme of “Inspiring QoE Transformation”. There was a

consensus among the executives that market and technology evolution are driving that

transformation. End-user subscribers are demanding better networks, a higher level of

user experience—whenever and wherever they are—to support the exploding trend of

broadband driven services. The challenge to service providers concern two aspects: new

revenue sources besides traditional service, and the demand for revenue assurance

while taking into consideration the solutions and methodologies for customer experience
