Public and private sector entities join ICT ecosystem to exchange ideas on the industry’s future, emerging 5G landscape and an increasingly digitalised Lebanon
Prominent government leaders and business executives from across the region came together at the Huawei Day Lebanon 2019 held at the Seaside Pavilion in Beirut to identify ways of accelerating the country’s move towards a new digital era.
The two-day conference included a series of panels and workshops focused on how to address the transformation of industry today, leveraging innovative technologies to bring digital to every person, home and organisation for a fully-connected intelligent world.
Hosted by Huawei, the conference included many of the company’s local and international ecosystem partners, as well as ICT industry experts and analysts. Guests in turn enjoyed access to demos of cutting-edge ICT solutions with a special focus on 5G driven, AI-enabled applications for smart government, transport, finance and more.
The spotlight on Artificial Intelligence (AI) comes at a critical time as large-scale 5G networks are also being launched – enabling more people, things and devices to be connected than ever before. Exhibitions within the conference demonstrated how the unique combination of AI and 5G is now being integrated into intelligent cloud computing, smart campus networks, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and large-scale Smart City grids.
Feng Nan, CEO of Huawei Levant Region, said: “We are on the brink of a fully connected, intelligent world where innovation happens rapidly and impacts everything. Now is the time for all organisations to embrace and activate intelligence through open, flexible and secure platforms.
“Simultaneously, AI capabilities are becoming increasingly important. Future-focused events like this enable us to stay on the very forefront of an increasingly digital Lebanon, in line with the Lebanese government’s empowering vision of 5G and network solutions.”
