KATHMANDU – Leading information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and service provider Huawei today organized a virtual tour of its Darwin Hall, where the organization demonstrated the very latest developments in the global ICT sector and Huawei’s contribution to these developments.
The tour was attended by journalists from Bangladesh and Nepal, as well as senior high officials of Huawei. Jay Chen, Vice President of Huawei Asia Pacific, welcomed the guests and virtually accompanied them on the tour.
During the tour, attending guests got a glimpse of the tremendous potential of digitization. Digitization enabled technological advancements such as 5G ToB, Smart Manufacturing, Smart Police, Smart Port, Smart City, and OTN Ultra-Fast Financial Private Lane were demonstrated during the tour.
In that session, the VP said, “2020 has been a difficult year for everyone. But technology has played a critical role in helping us fight against the pandemic and accelerate economic recovery. Facing these challenges, Huawei has worked even more closely with our customers and partners than ever before. Nations like Bangladesh and Nepal are showing remarkable progress to keep up with the pace.”
A country undergoing rapid digital transformation, Nepal used to be in the leading position in South Asian region for telecom sectors in 3G era. So now, once Nepal has started to enter 5G club, it will give more confidence to whole telecom industry in Nepal. However, there will be a greater need for lot of research, study and preparation regarding standard regulation, frequency identification, roll out plan etc. to be done by the Government of Nepal, for commercial launch of 5G network. We believe that during the study and preparation for 5G test, Nepal can still keep on rolling out 4G network nationwide. There are still a lot of people in rural area who have not benefitted from 4G. So, it is better to first roll out, focus on 4G in rural areas and let more people be benefited from digital service.
Mr. Jay Chen also said, “Huawei has been pushing its limits, to take up this genuine responsibility and provide the nations with state-of-the-art technological assistance, for a continuous and seamless transition, from one level of technology-driven development to the next.”
