Huawei collaborates with Redington, depicts business interest in India’s Smart City endeavor

Huawei India, one of the key regional R&D centers of the Chinese magnate, Huawei, has signed a deal with Redington, one of India’s top information technology and telecom solution providers, to widen its physical presence across the Indian sub-continent. The multi-billion-dollar giant, with a behemoth share in global and Chinese smartphone industry, has ambitious plans of multiplying its imprints in India, reveal reports.

Huawei’s business relationship with India can be traced back to 1999, the year when the Chinese giant first established a research & development center in Bangalore, India, for the purpose of manufacturing and selling telecommunications software. The establishment led to further expansion in the country as the company began to liaison with other private firms, public sector enterprises, and even the Government. As of 2016, India is reportedly Huawei’s second largest market outside of China, with an employee pool of more than 6000. It has therefore, come as no surprise that Huawei has partnered with Redington for the further expansion of their business in the country.

Huawei aims to provide its products and services across the diverse regional landscape of India to help create smart solutions and contribute to the evolving smart scenario of the country. Reports state Redington will help the Chinese major promote its products and services via multiple middlemen in the supply chain across data storage, server, and digital business operations. Technical training of channel partners and after-sales maintenance assistance is also reported to be a part of the deal. Additionally, Redington will help Huawei develop reseller firms to sell its products in the areas of data center and cloud computing, which will indirectly fuel global and Chinese cloud computing industry, say analysts.

In a bid to further expanding its footprints across the rapidly developing Indian turf, Huawei has addressed the Indian government with an intention to support the ‘Smart City’ initiative launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in June 2015. The company, worth USD 75 billion as of 2016, has been in talks with power companies in the country to supply its smart grid solutions to power utility corporations. Apparently, this move is anticipated to ensure uninterrupted power supply for smart cities, in addition to strengthening the company’s position in global and Chinese smart grid sensors industry.

Confirming their partnership with Redington, Huawei’s officials stated that their advanced metering infrastructure design will help electricity supply companies lower power losses significantly. They also mentioned that they intend to continue supplying their smart solutions to enhance the development of smart cities across 40 countries. Sources affirm that Huawei’s product and service portfolio is indeed intended to digitize businesses and create a digitally enhanced smart civilization across India and other geographies.
