Huawei was the diamond sponsor of Milipol Qatar 2022, the international homeland security and civil defence event that took place from May 24-26 in Doha.
Huawei's partnership with Milipol reflects its leading position in cybersecurity and its end-to-end secure solutions and class-leading technologies, the company said in a statement.
"Huawei continuously plays an active role in the digital transformation of industries while also ensuring that cybersecurity and privacy protection remain priority.
Over the past 30 years, Huawei products have been used in more than 170 countries and regions, 1,500 carrier networks, and serving more than 3bn users while maintaining a solid track record in security.
More than 70 cybersecurity certifications were awarded to Huawei, giving customers internationally recognised security assurances.
This resilience is built on heavy investment in research and development (R&D), with 5% of its R&D budget directly in cybersecurity.
Huawei continues to build secure and trustworthy digital products and services through technological innovation and open collaboration," the statement explained.
Milipol Qatar Committee chairman Major-General Nasser bin Fahd al-Thani expressed his appreciation for Huawei as one of the main supporters and leading international companies in the field of information and communications technology (ICT).
Huawei not only participated in the 14th Milipol Qatar but has also supported this event for many years.
He said: “Milipol is a success due to the collaboration with partners such as Huawei. We appreciate their important role during the exhibition, especially with cybersecurity being an important topic.”
“We look forward to many more collaborations and partnerships with such companies to achieve Qatar's secure digital future,” Maj-Gen Nasser said.
Huawei Gulf North chief security officer Kamal Zian said: “In an accelerating digital era, cybersecurity and data privacy remains a key priority.”
“Participating in Milipol Qatar reflects Huawei’s commitment to empower our partners and support their digital transformation journey through advanced innovations and solutions to ensure a secure and safe cyber space,” he said.
At its booth at Milipol, visitors experienced Huawei's solutions for other sectors.
City leaders in attendance learned about Smart City IOC (Intelligent Operation Centre), a centralised platform that offers a visualised panorama of the city, provides city running status, insights into city risks, and makes comprehensive decisions based on data and information.
Huawei Converged Command & Control Solution supports voice, video, and data, achieving quick on-site incident detection and efficient cross-department collaboration, ensuring public security in cities.
Huawei also showcased its full-stack smart education solution, including intelligent connectivity as a foundation, a safe campus, a hybrid learning smart classroom, and data governance scenarios as online education accelerates post-pandemic.
Huawei highlighted its leading ICT and digital capabilities for the vital energy sector, including solutions such as E&P Cloud, Oil & Gas Field Production Campus, Oil & Gas Pipeline Intrusion Detection, Refining Production Campus, and Gas Station Interconnection and Security Management.
Further, with the rapid development of cloud, AI (artificial intelligence), and 5G, building data centres is challenging for enterprises.
Huawei showcased solutions that address long construction periods, high consumption of water and electricity resources, and difficult and inefficient manual O&M (operation and maintenance).
Huawei builds next-generation data centres that are simple, green, smart and secure through modularisation and intelligence.
Huawei also demonstrated its cloud vision to deliver “Everything as a Service”, underpinned by three pillars – “Infrastructure as a Service”, “Technology as a Service”, and “Expertise as a Service”.
This can accelerate digital transformation while also minimising the carbon footprint of IT infrastructure, speed up the development of new apps and business processes, and enable organisations to innovate faster.
