Huawei, du sign MOU for MEC

Huawei and du have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for joint innovation on multi-access edge computing (MEC). The two parties will research, verify, and replicate MEC-oriented applications in the Middle East, helping du provide more diversified communications services. They hope to join forces to accelerate the digital transformation in the Middle East, and set a benchmark for the development of global digital economy.

5G is the cornerstone of global digital transformation, and MEC is a fundamental technology in 5G and essential for unlocking new business value. With MEC, ubiquitous connections and high computing capabilities can be delivered to individuals for their diverse services, such as VR, AR, and multimedia; and low latency and high security can be provided to enterprises by restricting data to within enterprise campuses. The sustainable development of both B2B and B2C services requires the scale-up of MEC.

As one of the fastest growing operators in the UAE, du excels in both 5G coverage and network rate, and holds a big share in the Middle East market. Over the years, du and Huawei have continuously explored and innovated in the MEC field and achieved multiple practices. For example, in February 2021, du, Huawei, and local partners leveraged 5G MEC to live broadcast the matches of the UAE’s President’s Cycling Cup, delivering a VR-based immerse experience to audience.

Richard Liu said that Huawei has conducted extensive research in MEC and has deployed MEC-related 5G applications in various industries. With this as a solid basis, Huawei will help du unlock more MEC applications, providing diversified high-quality XR and multimedia services for individual consumers, and connection and computing capabilities to enterprise customers for their differentiated requirements.
