Huawei will continue to cooperate with local governments and telecom industry partners on ICT infrastructure initiatives, expanding ecosystem partnerships to introduce new services and delivering innovative solutions that bridge the digital divide across emerging markets.
Access to the internet through mobile and fixed networks will soon become a basic right. In 2017, more than 450 million people were connected to mobile Internet, and more than 30 million families had access to broadband services.
However, 3 billion people in the world still lack access, and 870 million do not even own mobile phones. 1.1 billion Families still do not have broadband connections.
With growing mobile adoption and rising GDP per capita in densely populated emerging markets, a large proportion of income is spent on both voice and data services. This offers significant opportunities for operators.
It is estimated that over the next five years, more than 1 billion people in emerging markets will be connected and the resulting traffic will increase by five to ten times.
With the continued development of infrastructure and industry ecosystems improvement, emerging market will embrace another round of business booming, which will accelerate the revenue growth and will improve the efficiency of network construction, operation, and maintenance.
“We are committed to support digital transformation in Tanzania.” said Mr. Gao Mengdong, The country General Manager.
He added: “We are planning to have more productive collaboration with Tanzania government and telecom industry partners in improving and growing ICT industry especially in infrastructure, business supporting systems, just to name a few.
The investment and collaborations in ICT will improve efficiency of services to the ICT industry. Our objective is to help build a better connected Tanzania.”
Huawei is focused on three core areas to help operators meet the burgeoning demands on their networks.
New Industry Environment
The relatively weak ICT infrastructure in emerging markets requires that governments introduce top-down top- level design and unified planning, as well as industry support in unconnected areas. Digital economic development must be driven by ICT development and opportunities in the next couple of years must be seized to bridge the digital divide.
New Cooperation Modes
Huawei cooperates with industry partners in ecosystems to promote new forms of cooperation, effectively helping to shorten the ROI of operators, and drive the positive cycle of business development and network
construction. Huawei helps operators in various countries to form collaboration with tower vendors and other operators in building infrastructure such as site ecosystems and FTTH alliance,. In 2017, over 30 infrastructure industry alliances have been established to maximize the investment efficiency of infrastructure.
New Business Solutions
Huawei is working with operators to offer a series of innovative business solutions. These are primarily introduced to increase the efficiency of network operation and maintenance, rapidly deploy broadband to the home, and fully leverage existing network and public assets to unleash site potential and maximize spectral efficiency. These solutions are already delivering benefits for operators in emerging markets:
