TD, Huawei targets development of enterprise market


Technology Distributions Limited, Information Communications Technology (ICT) Distributor in West Africa and Huawei, Chinese technology provider, have come together in a partnership designed to create maximum value for telecom carriers, enterprises and consumers by providing competitive ICT solutions and services. Both global ICT giants are pulling their resources together – Huawei, its innovative and trusted manufacturing capacities and TD, its highly motivated and massive distribution network in West Africa – to provide a wide range of efficient ICT solutions and services to enterprise customers of all sizes, announced Chioma Ekeh, managing director, TD while receiving the Huawei Distributors License.

Ekeh described the partnership as timely because it was coming at a time when Government was embarking on a transformation program across all sectors of the economy. Huge investments were being made in the transportation, energy, education, health, aviation etc and it would be absurd if Huawei enterprise solutions, deployed already in 140 countries, were not part of the choices that TD would offer to her top notch clientele. Besides, she added, 2015, the date set for the attainment of the MDGs was just a stone throw away and industry analysts were expecting that Governments and NGOs would make further heavy investments in ICT infrastructure.

The MD TD assured resellers and the market that characteristically TD would stock large quantities of Huawei Enterprise Servers, Enterprise Switches, Enterprise Routers, E-sight, WLAN Solutions, Firewall Solutions, Tele-presence Solutions and UPS. She reaffirmed the TD commitment to immediate delivery anywhere in West Africa. As usual every purchase from TD would come in the traditional incentive-laden package for which TD has become legendary. Presenting the Distributors, License earlier, the Director, Channel Department, Huawei, Vincent Zhou, had said that Huawei appointed TD a Distributor after an impressive assessment of her capacities in corporate governance, marketing, financial muscle, and logistics.

Zhou revealed that Huawei Enterprise is one of Huawei’s three business groups. He said that the TD partnership would leverage on Huawei’s strong R&D capabilities to service customers in government and MDAs, finance and banking, oil and gas, commercial businesses and ISPs.
