Telecom Egypt and Huawei Cloud announced a first for North Africa

Telecom Egypt, a leading communications and information technology service provider, and Huawei Cloud have joined forces to launch tech giant Huawei’s first locally based public cloud platform in Egypt and North Africa.

This launch, say the partners, aligns with Telecom Egypt’s strategy to position Egypt as the premium regional digital hub and underscores Telecom Egypt’s and Huawei's commitment to enabling Egypt’s transformation in the digital era.

Hosting Huawei Cloud in Telecom Egypt's data centres ensures seamless reachability to more than 60 countries around the globe, capitalising on more than 14 submarine cable systems, which are set to increase to 18 cable systems by 2025, in addition to the massive national reach of enterprises and SMEs in Egypt.

Beyond hosting, Telecom Egypt says it is leveraging its extensive network and expertise to seamlessly integrate Huawei Cloud solutions with existing infrastructure.

Huawei Cloud offers comprehensive scenario-based solutions and over 240 extensive professional services covering cloud construction, migration, utilisation, and management, to cater to evolving business needs in Egypt, allowing users to focus on business innovation while benefiting from a secure and reliable cloud environment.

By introducing Huawei Cloud, Telecom Egypt and Huawei say they are showcasing their commitment to delivering cutting-edge technologies and services that cater to the evolving needs of the market. Additionally, launching the cloud is expected to generate a multitude of job opportunities for youth in Egypt and many countries in North, West and Central Africa.

Mohamed Nasr, Managing Director, and Chief Executive Officer at Telecom Egypt, says: “We are thrilled to host Huawei Cloud in Telecom Egypt’s state-of-the-art, Tier III-certified data centre located in the Smart Village Campus, which is connected to EG-IX, an open access internet exchange platform, and a fully meshed subsea and terrestrial network that connects Huawei Cloud to the globe.”

He adds that Telecom Egypt’s hosting services will enable access to all networks in Egypt, “supporting businesses and contributing to Telecom Egypt’s vision of becoming a thriving global digital hub through its associated ecosystem”.
