NAIROBI – HUAWEI has released the next-generation Universal Transport Solution for Smart Grids.
It is anticipated the solution would help electric power companies in Kenya and beyond develop simple, future-oriented networks with continuous value growth. The new solution breaks transmission bottlenecks in the Big Data era and injects new vitality into optical networks.
James Gordon Kwanya Rege, Chairman of Kenya Electricity Transmission Co. Ltd., said the country’s power transmission network was expanding rapidly.
He said with the fast development of digitalization and need for business monetization, there was an exponential growth in demand for backbone bearing network bandwidth.
“Hence, electric power companies need a bandwidth solution that caters to long-term growth evolution and flexibility in capacity expansion,” Rege said.
Huawei invited Rege to its press conference held in conjunction with the International Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRE) exhibition in Paris.
Joe Zhou, Vice President of Huawei Transport Network Product Line, said the application of Huawei Next-Generation Universal Transport Solution for Smart Grid would further unleash optical fibre capabilities and provide reliable assurance for smart grid construction and development, as well as
continuous operation for value growth.
“Looking ahead, Huawei will continue to provide customers with leading optical transmission network solutions, innovate technologies based on customer requirements, and work with industry partners to promote network cloudification and digital transformation,” Zhou said.
Huawei provides the electric power industry with one-stop ICT solutions to bring digital technologies into every home and electric power enterprise and is committed to being the best digital transformation partner for the electric power industry.
To date, Huawei’s fully-connected grid solution has been implemented by 13 of the world’s top 20 power companies, and has been widely used in 73 countries worldwide, serving more than 190 electric power customers.
