With an exponential growth of USD2.7 billion in sales revenue for 2010 in the Middle East, Huawei Technologies continues to increase its market foothold in the region where the enterprise market will remain its strategic focus over the next few years. Targeting five main sectors including banking, government, oil and gas, transportation and smart grid, Huawei Technologies will offer training and certification services as part of the range of offerings in the Enterprise portfolio.

Dong Wu, Vice President, Huawei Enterprise Business, Middle East said: “We are excited about working with Stage 2 in carefully selected countries. The programme will aim to provide a comprehensive and specialized certification on network technologies for our region’s customers.

Al Khaleej Group signed an agreement with Huawei Enterprise earlier this year in Saudi Arabia to establish a certification system that allows for a more pragmatic training programme in Datacoms and Internet Protocol (IP) technology. Huawei’s partnership with Stage 2, its newly formed division under Al Khaleej Group will aim to continue its training capabilities in UAE, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon.
