The Chinese company Huawei has entered into a partnership with Intel in order to provide public cloud solutions to the global telecom carriers. With this association the companies aim to offer carriers with greater access to high-quality, innovative technologies and solutions as they deliver carrier grade cloud services to enterprises and individual end-users.
Speaking about the partnership, Zheng Yelai, President of Huawei’s IT Product Line, said, “We are honored to strengthen our partnership with Intel, the world leader in computing. By working together, we aim to provide strong support for the upcoming business transformation among carriers across the globe.”
On the other hand, Jason Waxman, Vice President and General Manager, Cloud Platforms Group, Intel Corporation, said, “Industry collaboration will foster innovation to deliver the latest Cloud technology to Telecommunications Service Providers.
