Omantel, a leading integrated telecommunications services provider in Oman, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Chinese multinational technology corporation, Huawei in order to jointly explore opportunities and develop the cloud market in the Sultanate.

As part of their strategic cooperation, Omantel and Huawei will come together to conduct market insight analysis of cloud business in Oman.

The two companies will also join hands to identify cutting-edge services that can boost cloud technology adoption of organizations and develop the cloud business market in the country.

“The adoption of cloud services is gaining momentum in Oman, and its role in bolstering digital transformation has become clear to the government and enterprises alike. As a leading digitization enabler in Oman, this collaboration with Huawei will help expand Omantel’s cloud services offerings to its esteemed customers while leveraging the cloud expertise and innovation that our long-term partner brings.”

Mr. Frank Dai, President of HUAWEI CLOUD Middle East, said that, “Huawei and Omantel have an enduring and long-lasting partnership that has delivered immense opportunities for Oman’s organizations.”
