Stratecast F&S Honors Huawei with Value-Added Service Award

By Paula Bernier February 03, 2016

Huawei this month garnered the 2015 Global Stratecast Value-Added Service Enabling Technology Leadership Award from Stratecast Frost & Sullivan. The company was lauded for its leadership and managed services related to cloud enablement and network service consolidation.

The consulting and research firm highlighted Huawei’s network functions virtualization and software-defined networking solutions, including its VAS Cloud, which serves to break down the silos that exist within CSP networks into a single environment in which resources can be reused for expedited new service creation.

VAS Cloud, which is used by 36 of the world’s largest CSPs today, can also be used to support voice and messaging on cellular networks, including 4G ones.

Tim McElligott, senior consulting analyst at Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan, notes that Huawei has quickly become a leader in managed network and operations services. 

"As networks evolve toward cloud, virtualization, and an all-digital world,” McElligott says. “Huawei continues to roll out solutions for these new architectures as well as the services and applications that run on them."

Huawei is a Chinese IT and telecom equipment, software, and services giant, which continues to make strides in a number of areas both in China, in the U.S., and elsewhere.

A few years back Huawei made headlines when it surpassed the revenues of Ericsson. Today Ericsson and Huawei share the LTE infrastructure market share lead, each owning a bit more than 20 percent in the second quarter of last year, according to Infornetics Research. Huawei “stands out as a leader” and is “steadily gaining market share in major telecom infrastructure segments and staking out a strong position in software-defined networks and network functions virtualization,” as noted in a March 2015 report by Infonetics Research.

Huawei is the No. 3 provider of smartphones worldwide, having accounted for 44 percent of the smartphones shipped worldwide last year, according to IDC. And Huawei in 2014 overtook Panasonic to become the top applicant for international patents with the World International Property Organisation.
