Over the past two decades, Huawei has connected one-third of the world’s population, with its information networks covering more than 170 countries and regions. In order to utilize transformative trends in the future, Huawei is increasing investment in innovative technologies, such as cloud computing, Big Data, 5G, SDN, and NFV.

It will also continue to deliver innovative products to individual users, businesses, and organizations. The recent best example that has caught hearts all around the globe, but especially in Pakistan is Huawei Mate S.
As indicated by Interbrand’s professional evaluation in the 2015 Best Global Brands report, Huawei has progressed well over the past year in all its three major business segments – carrier, enterprise, and consumer. Its strong R&D capacity, forward-looking strategic plan, and open innovation have contributed greatly to its brand responsiveness, relevance, and presence. And when it comes to the local market in Pakistan Huawei has very efficiently developed a larger consumer pool than Apple or Samsung because Huawei has something very foundational in terms of technologies and services with a high quality experience and better aesthetic taste serving.
In the enterprise market, Huawei’s innovative products and solutions have laid a solid foundation for the company’s competitiveness, and are widely acknowledged by customers. As a result, Huawei is accelerating its growth in the enterprise market. This growth momentum is further fueled by the widespread adoption of Huawei’s flagship products and solutions (e.g. Cloud computing, storage, and agile networks) in both domestic and overseas sectors, such as smart cities, finance, education, and ISP.
In the consumer market, Huawei’s quality products with a superior user experience have enabled the company to become the brand of choice. So far, Huawei has secured a strong footing in the mid-range and high-end device market. Its high-end smartphones – especially Mate7, Mate S, and P8 – and Honor smartphones have made solid progress. These developments have allowed Huawei to enjoy quality and sustainable growth in the consumer business.
Amid a wave of ICT convergence, interdependency and co-existence are essential for different industries, products, services, and brands. Close collaboration is required to build a more prosperous ICT industry. Huawei is committed to creating an open ecosystem. Open partnership has allowed the company to complement its capabilities and exchange energy with the rest of the world.
With an open mindset, Huawei has collaborated closely with its partners in areas such as cloud computing, SDN, NFV, and 5G, aiming to jointly drive industry development.
At Huawei Cloud Congress 2015, Huawei announced its cloud ecosystem strategy, which focuses on IT infrastructure, software platforms, and enterprise cloud services. The company is dedicated to building a more robust cloud ecosystem with its partners, including infrastructure providers, application developers, channel partners, integrators, and independent software vendors.
