Since the onslaught of the Coronavirus pandemic, Pakistan has deployed an ICT based approach to finding local hotspots and in turn enforcing smart lockdowns in areas in need of containment. Huawei officials laud this approach ensuring smoother and reliable network cooperation with Pakistan.
According to Huawei officials, “The fight against COVID-19 requires the sharing of expertise like never before, particularly in the technology field. That exchange can be seen in collaborations like those between the Ministry of National Health Services and Huawei to deploy a new video conferencing system that can be applied for epidemic prevention and control command, remote consultation, and remote monitoring.” Pakistan’s ICT community could be better designed so that systems that communities and businesses need to tackle the emergency together could be made more efficient.
“5G will also allow industries like manufacturing, electricity, transportation, finance, and many others to go digital, embrace artificial intelligence, and deliver new value for their customers,” said Meng, CEO of Huawei Pakistan, in a press statement. Elaborating smarter collaboration tools, he said new applications of artificial intelligence (AI) were, for example, being used to aid scientists and medical experts who are searching for a vaccine and treatments.
“At Huawei, we are focused on innovations in technology, engineering, products, and solutions to address customer needs,” said Meng, pledging to bring digital applications to every person, home, and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world. “We have more than 194,000 employees, and we operate in more than 170 countries and regions, serving more than three billion people around the world.”
On 5G — the fifth generation of network technology in which Huawei leads the world – the CEO said, “The potential future rollout of 5G connectivity will help improve network capacity and support even more robust tools in the fight against COVID-19.”
“By 2025, 5G will serve 58% of the global population, and it will combine with technologies like 4K and higher definition video, VR/AR, AI, and cloud to transform our personal lives, homes, and industries in ways we have never imagined.”
He also said that Huawei worked with their customers and partners effortlessly over the last few months to make sure they provided a smooth and reliable network connection in Pakistan and would continue to do so.
