 “The explosion of broadband data usage in South Africa and internationally is creating an ever-growing set of coverage and capacity challenges that cannot be addressed effectively by any single technology,” says Winston Smith, Managing Director for Alvarion in South Africa.  The same is true for all types of wireless broadband networks from tier 1 mobile carriers to wireless internet service providers, enterprises, governments and municipalities, and private network operators in various vertical markets.
“The subscriber numbers and uptake of broadband for wireless users is much higher than in cabled options in South Africa, and this trend is set to continue into 2012,” says Smith.  “The solution to under-capacity is to employ multiple complementary technologies which can be optimised for various types of networks and applications.”
In line with this multi-technology approach, Alvarion recently signed a definitive agreement to acquire Wavion, a leader in carrier-grade WiFi applications. With interference as one of the biggest challenges in deploying WiFi, Wavion’s solution provides better cover, higher capacity and interference immunity using smart antenna, beamforming and SDMA technologies. “As one of the fastest growing segments in the telecom equipment industry, carrier WiFi is a good opportunity for Alvarion,” continues Smith.
The advanced WiFi technology provided by Wavion, combined with Alvarion’s 4G RAN solution and recently acquired DAS (distributed antenna systems) capabilities now creates a full suite of capacity and coverage solutions not available by any other vendor in the industry.
“Alvarion is fast shifting from a focus on WiMAX-based RAN solutions to a multi-technology wireless broadband provider, and with the inclusion of Wavion in our offering, we will have WiFi as the final component of a complete solution for our customers,” concludes Smith.


Huawei Announces Strategy for Africa known as “glocalisation”

Innovation, Local Partnerships and Localized Operations

Huawei, South Africa’s leading information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today revealed its business strategy for the local markets at the two-day AfricaCom telecommunications conference in Cape Town.  At the core of the local strategy is customer-centric innovation, establishment and maintenance of local business partnerships as well as localized operations.

Huawei will capitalize on the current market opportunities by focusing on the concept of ‘glocalisation’ which is combining our global efforts with local insights and consideration.  In South Africa, we have already had a considerable progress in this regard through a number of interventions such as enterprise development, skills and technology transfer, partnerships with local business and accelerated recruitment of locals,” said Peng Song, Chief Executive Officer of Huawei Africa.

Huawei’s glocalisation strategy is focused on partnering with the local business community through local employees, sharing resources with local partners, as well as providing opportunities to develop local talent that will form the next generation of telecom leaders. Recently, Huawei’s newly established Enterprise Business Unit has entered into partnership agreements with local companies such as Mustek and Gijima AST.

During the recent 13th Nikkei Global Management Forum in Tokyo, Deputy Chairman of Huawei, Ken Hu said: “Innovation in emerging markets means practicality and adapting to local requirements; whether it requires adopting cutting-edge technology or just thinking outside of the box.  Our goal is to work together to develop innovative products and solutions that enrich lives of those in emerging markets”.

The concept of reverse innovation, where solutions designed for emerging markets are then brought to developed markets has been used by Huawei as well. A site-sharing solution originally developed to tackle low utilization rates of wireless base stations and increase operational efficiency in India, was so successful that it has been deployed by telecom operators in Europe.
