However, Huawei believes embracing new ICT is not only about technology and architecture, it also means being part of a strong, new ecosystem that integrates ICT infrastructure providers and industry partners to create greater value for enterprises.

The new marketing theme of Huawei Enterprise BG is aligned its Business-Driven ICT Infrastructure (BDII) guiding principle and the company remains committed to its strategies of “Focus” and “Being Integrated”. Together with its partners, Huawei is dedicated to helping customers across industries, including government and public sectors, financial services, energy, transportation, manufacturing, education, and Internet Service Providers (ISP) to thrive in the new ICT era while building a better connected world.
