Huawei partners with Telematics to bolster Unified Communications capabilities in the UAE and Qatar

Huawei Enterprise, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has signed a channel partnership agreement with Telematics, adding the UAE-based Systems Integrator, ICT Engineering and Project Management Company to its authorised partner network in the region. The partnership underlines Huawei’s commitment to the Middle East and the expected Unified Communication (UC) market growth in the region.

According to a recent report from Frost & Sullivan, the Middle East UC market is expected to reach $ 235 million by 2014. As the work force becomes ever more mobile UC becomes increasingly more important, allowing users to experience seamless communication through multiple devices while on the move. The tangible business benefits of UC adoption are cost savings resulting from reduced power consumption, space and hardware requirements as well as increased employee efficiency.

Dong Wu, Vice President of Huawei Enterprise Middle East commented: “Huawei’s channel partner programme plays a vital role in our overall Middle East business strategy where Qatar and the UAE are some of our fastest growing markets. Telematic, part of the BMTC group, brings valuable insights into key vertical industries such as finance, hospitality, and government. Together we look forward to bringing the latest in Unified Communications technologies to customers throughout the region.”

Huawei has appointed Telematics as a silver-level Channel partner, drawing on the company’s extensive customer base and local knowledge of the UAE and Qatari markets. Telematics will provide Huawei Enterprises Unified Communication and Collaboration (UCC) products and solutions, specifically IP telephony, call centres and video conferencing to its existing and growing customer base. Together, Huawei and Telematics will offer UCC products catering to large enterprises in the government, transportation, aviation, hospitality, and education sectors.

Mr. Rajiv Dutta, General Manager for Telematics, added: “We chose to partner with Huawei Enterprise because of the company’s wide range of products, history in the telecom business and its interactive channel team. We look forward to developing this relationship in years to come.”
