Huawei has launched Africa’s first Digital inCloud Eastern and Southern Africa regional centre at the 5th Annual VAS Africa summit.
The Digital inCloud centre will introduce more digital services to Africa through the cooperation of operators and local and global partners.
The localised operation enables African carriers and partners to compete globally by developing digital products and services.
Currently, Huawei is partnering with MTN in South Africa and Safaricom in Kenya. Local service partners include Globaltom, GM Gaming, and the GMSA.
Three more services will be launched in South Africa in July.
Globally, Huawei Digital inCloud has aggregated over 2,000 partners with over 200,000 games, songs, and videos, and has served over 140 million carrier users.
The content covers digital music, mobile games, videos, API openness, traffic monetization, B2B Cloud, and M2M.
“Huawei Digital inCloud solution will facilitate ease of distribution and trade between consumer, carriers, and partners of digital products and services,” said the company.
With the launch of the Digital inCloud centre, Huawei’s global distribution network nodes increase from eight to nine.
