Huawei Philippines signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Converge ICT Solutions to enhance their cooperation in the enterprise optical network field. The MOU was signed during Huawei Connect 2023, Huawei’s annual major industry gathering of technology experts and key decision-makers.
The MOU aims to build on the successful collaboration between Converge and Huawei in home broadband services and to jointly promote industry intelligence in the Philippines. By leveraging Converge’s extensive fiber network and experience in providing high-speed connectivity services, as well as Huawei’s diversified and world-class products enabling seamless digital services for businesses, the companies hope to drive innovation and growth within the burgeoning optical network landscape.
Converge is a technology solutions provider in the Philippines, with an emphasis on fiber broadband technology. It focuses on building ultra-broadband and secured fiber networks, as well as operating fixed network and fixed wireless broadband services. Since 2014, Converge has collaborated with Huawei in areas such as home broadband, enterprise leased lines, bandwidth leasing, and data center hosting.
With the launch of its all-optical strategy back in 2017, Converge’s home broadband service has developed rapidly. By the end of 2022, Converge’s existing Fiber To The Home (FTTH) users had reached 1.9 million.
With the wide application of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, big data, and IoT, campus applications like enterprise office, education, and healthcare are rapidly increasing, posing higher requirements on campus network bandwidth, latency, and reliability.
In November 2022, Converge announced its plans to team up with technology partners to provide cutting-edge Wi-Fi services throughout various airports in the Philippines. Leveraging Huawei’s state-of-the-art Fiber To The Office (FTTO) solution, Converge is set to establish a robust and seamless wireless Wi-Fi network engineered to address the diverse connectivity needs of travelers and airport visitors.
The Huawei FTTO solution brings to the table a suite of impressive features including high bandwidth, low latency, and simplified O&M procedures. These attributes collectively tackle the traditional pain points associated with managing wireless networks for airport customers, ensuring an efficient and reliable Wi-Fi experience.
The MOU between Converge and Huawei signifies their intent to further strengthen their partnership in the enterprise optical network field, and to jointly explore new opportunities and challenges in the digital transformation era.
By capitalizing on their respective strengths and expertise, the companies aim to deliver high-quality and cost-effective solutions that will benefit various industries and sectors in the Philippines.
