Earlier this month, Huawei inaugurated its new Regional Training Center in Cairo, Egypt. The new facility replaces the previous training center based at Nasr City. The new facility received a boost of USD20 million in new training equipment, allowing the latest technology training programs for WCDMA, GSM, CDMA, NGN, Datacom, Optical Networks, Broadband and Intelligent Networks, among others. With 11 classrooms and laboratories, the facility has increased its capacity, able to accommodate 150 trainees at a time.
"Huawei is dedicated to the growth of Africa. Huawei will grow its investments and presence together with Africa. The telecommunication sector is emerging as a driving force for local economies, in terms of creating income and jobs, and we at Huawei want to be a key contributor to African nations," commented Mr. Ding Shaohua, President of Huawei Middle East & North Africa.
"The move to the Smart Village is timely, as it evolves into a fully fledged business park in Egypt with its state-of-art infrastructure. We now have a sophisticated training center that can cater to our customers' current and future needs," added Mr. Ding.
After the opening ceremony, trainees from Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa discussed the development and potential of the telecommunications industry in Africa, via video conferencing facilities at the new center.
