Huawei Technologies has launched its Intelligent Cloud Network Solution in Kenya, targeting a share of the country’s multi-billion-shilling cloud computing industry. The Intelligent Cloud Network has been designed and built to address the key challenges facing organizations that are going through the digitalization journey. Huawei’s latest generation cloud technologies are all built to deliver an optimal cloudification experience across wide area networks, data center networks, campus networks, and network security.
According to Huawei’s Chief Technology Officer for Southern Africa, Matamela Mashau, more than 80% of organizations are expected to have migrated their services to the cloud by 2025. Kenya is considered the gateway to the East African region, with Nairobi being a favorable location for data center development. The country’s data center market is estimated at Kshs 17 billion (USD 170 million) currently and projected to double over the next three years to Kshs 34 billion (USD 342 million) by 2026.
Huawei’s Intelligent Cloud Network Solution offers an end-to-end solution that includes CloudCampus 3.0, CloudFabric 3.0, CloudWAN 3.0, and HiSec 3.0. These latest generation cloud technologies are built to deliver an optimal cloudification experience across wide area networks, data center networks, campus networks, and network security. The solution is digital, intelligent, and service-oriented, offering a more flexible full life cycle future spanning planning, construction, maintenance, and optimization.
Legacy networks face challenges such as long deployment where it takes some time to install them while the cloud enables it to be done in minutes thus saving time. Huawei’s Intelligent Cloud Network Solution speeds up service cloudification, making it a great fit to supply non-stop computing power and intelligence to diverse industries for a leap forward in productivity and a new impetus for the digital economy just as the power grid transmits electricity to numerous households.
Data centers are increasingly becoming central to the running of local economies and organizations, playing a fundamental role as everything that happens online is housed in a data center. Huawei’s Intelligent Cloud Network Solution is a one-click subscription service that offers trouble shooting efficiency, security defense, and traffic steering. By being a network as a service option, it offers more flexibility and agility to organizations to meet their changing business needs.
